About TalktoCanada

Hear the story and meet the people behind the company

grey1TalktoCanada was conceived in late January of 2006 by Alysia Bartley and Marc Anderson who had recently finished university and were looking for something to do with their free time in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

One day Marc stumbled upon a newspaper article about students in China who were using Skype to find random native English speakers in the west to talk to and learn English from. Seeing the opportunity for an online English teaching business, Marc & Alysia decided to go for it and named their company TalktoCanada.

TalktoCanada started out targeting private individuals. But after a few years, companies started to contact them requesting English training for their employees. After continued interest from organizations and companies, TalktoCanada decided to expand the business model and offer customized corporate English courses to companies of all sizes.

Today TalktoCanada employs several dozen staff members and provides online English lessons to private students and businesses in more than 50 countries around the world.
