Your profile lets other users get to know you a little. If you would like to connect with people like you, you need to provide a little information about yourself. People can only find you if you let them know who you are and what you do! Below are a few pieces of information and how others may use that information.
Role: Most members of WeSpeke are language learners—individuals using WeSpeke for business, travel, or personal reasons. Their role would be “Learner”. Some members join as learners and teachers at schools and universities. The students will register as “Learner” at the specific institution. If you are a teacher using WeSpeke to support instruction, you would register as a “Teacher” at that location. If you need to get your institution entered in the WeSpeke database, contact support.wespeke.com.
Location: By indicating your location, users who may be traveling or otherwise interested in a specific location can find you to ask about local culture, trends and events.
Interests: Interests are key on WeSpeke. We believe that language practice is more fun and effective when you talk about things you like—when you talk to people like you. The WeSpeke matching algorithm finds those users like you who are also native speakers of your target language.

Accessing another user's profile
Click on a user’s name on any page—above a post on one of the topic pages, in the Connect section, in your Message Center—and you will be taken to the user’s profile page. Here, you can see the user’s vital information, post a comment to him or her, or invite the user to chat. If the user is online, you can chat with him or her instantly by "calling" the user, or you can send a message, inviting them to chat at a later time.
