Learn English By Talking on the Phone
LEBTOP is an application of a simple idea that a language can be learnt faster and easier by speaking in it and having conversations in it with better speakers.
People who want to improve their English communications skills will call the LEBTOP number to talk to better speakers. Thus, they get a chance to imbibe the knowledge and learn the right usage of words and grammar.
CHANGE THE WORLD IN JUST YOUR PYJAMAS!
What is Microvolunteering?
Volunteer your time in bite sized chunks, from your own home and when you want to. Benefit worthy causes to suit your lifestyle at your own convenience. Dip in, dip out with absolutely no commitment. No specialised skills required.
And, oh yeah, you can do them in your pyjamas!
Micro Effort, Macro Impact
LEBTOP is a Micro Volunteering project.
All calls received on the LEBTOP number (1800-200-8383) on weekends will be forwarded to various Micro Volunteers (based on their time of convenience as informed to us).
Micro Volunteers of LEBTOP have to speak to the callers in English on interesting topics.
Topics of conversation shall be chosen by the micro volunteer. (Click on "sample topics" tab for more details)
Do not spend much time in explaining the grammaticism. You may make minor corrections once in a while, but focus on the conversation topic. Learners tend to pick up on the right usage of words and grammar from the conversation and hence LEBTOP believes that correcting and lecturing on English is not necessary on the call.

HOW IT WORKS:
We have a list of registered Micro-Volunteers. These are people who can speak good English and want to help others do the same. These people have given us their contact numbers and timings during which they can help other people.
Talking to a person poor in English to help them by giving them practice and confidence is a small task - A micro task. LEBTOP is a Micro-Volunteering project.
We will forward USERS calls to MICRO-VOLUNTEERS.
Users can converse in English with these Micro-volunteers to improve their spoken English.
