What to do on Polygled?

9 things do on Polygled

✓ In addition to chatting in the "Messages" section, you can also call your chat  partners from the application or the web version of the platform at polygled.com! To do this, go to the chat  partner's profile by clicking on their avatar in the message list (if you are using the web version, point your cursor at the conversation partner's avatar and go to their profile by clicking on the menu that appears).  Or find a new one in the "Chat Partners" section in the lower menu of the application window or in the top menu of the website.

On Polygled you can talk with or without video. If you feel uncomfortable talking to someone you don't know in video mode, choose an audio call. Both audio and video calls can be scheduled in advance: open your chat partner profile in the app and touch  Schedule a conversation  button. In a web-version you will need the  Suggest a conversation  button next to the name of the chat partner in his/her profile or the  Schedule button  in the "Chat Partners" section.

✓ During the call, you can play ice breaking games. It's an easy way to quickly immerse yourself in the conversation from the first minutes, avoiding embarrassment and awkward pauses and without thinking of what to talk about. The games are designed to help you really talk in a foreign language. 

During each call, the Context button, if you are in the application, or the Games button, if you are at polygled.com, will be activated in the conversation window in the lower left corner. Clicking on it will start one of the 6 games that you and your conversation partner will choose.

✓ To help you start communicating effectively online in English, we've created a free course that includes useful and easy-to-use tips with examples on how to start, develop, and end social networking conversations and interactions and avoid the mistakes that can cause them to fail.

● a full video

● the Summary section, which contains useful tips and examples

● and a funny quiz to apply it
