Worldia is a social networking tool for making friends and practicing languages. It focuses on using Skype to bridge the virtual gap and connect with real people worldwide as friends. The foreign-language-learning networking tools are accompanied by community building possiblities and paid private language lessons. The ensemble creates the potential for someone to quickly and interactively learn to speak foreign languages.
At Worldia, members can become tutors and earn money teaching online. This adds a nice twist to the social language learning gambit, and makes it a feature-rich web community for learning and teaching foreign languages - and getting paid! Nice.
One aspect of Worldia that I dig is the world map feature that allows you to view locations of all the friends you encounter on the site. Sweet.
Worldia is also available in Japanese. I imagine they'll add more languages in the future.
