Hi, I am trying the lean startup method :)
I am a software developer that likes to create a useful program for learning

The idea is that a Native speaker will create a thread on some topic that is
interesting for him and write a short story, let's say in English. Other students that
are learning English will join the discussion and speak with him on a given topic.

Will this kind of learning be interesting? What do you think?
Would you give a try to this website/mobile app if it would exist?

For native speakers it can be something like freelance, so they will earn some money
or get some cookies...

Thank you in advance for your opinion!

King regards,

There are already online blogs for people to chat in different languages. Basically someone will start a topic like "driving electric cars". Anybody who wants to contribute their ideas can add their opinion. The language level you are at is less important than your ideas.

If you want something more interactive, you can connect people through Skype with their permission. People reveal their name and location and engage in conversations in a language.
