Quotes from John Hayden, the president and cofounder of English, baby!
"What our site offers is a chance for people of different beliefs, customs and cultures to explore a common interest – learning conversational, American-style English – together,"
"With its web 2.0 functions, English, baby! users—located across the globe from Armenia to China to Zimbabwe—will have the opportunity to interact, make friends and practice English in real time, allowing for a richer and more involved learning experience."
"Traditional English teaching lacks two things: real examples of English usage and a place to practice colloquial English.“English, baby! is that place, whether you are a waiter in Europe interested in picking up a few words to improve service, or a teenager in China wanting to better understand a movie from the U.S."
