Megafon helps to study English. For 8 rubles a day only!
Russian telecom operator Megafon started a new service. Now any subscriber can speak with English natives just for 8 rubles per day. For this price subscribers can use the service almost without limitations: they can call as many times as you want. However, each call will be no longer than 10 minutes.
Wakie became the partner of the service (they have also created a social alarm clock service Budist.ru). They provided the database of the 20-25 thousands of native English speakers.
The service is positioned as a support for people studying English, and in some part as an alternative to the virtual language schools (for instance, via Skype)
Sure, we welcome this idea – as well as any idea that helps people to understand each other better. And we wish them success! :)
