Cambly, The Video Chat App That Connects English Learners to Native English Tutors, Launches Cambly Groups

New Group Product Will Make Cambly’s Tutoring Service More Accessible to Students in more than 150 Countries Around the World

San Francisco, CA - November 30, 2022

Cambly, the video chat app that connects English learners to native English tutors, announced today the global launch of Cambly Groups. This new product takes access to Cambly to the next level. Historically tutoring on Cambly has all been 1-1, but now students can join a live group tutoring session, which results in more options for students, and a lower cost for tutoring services. Cambly’s complete focus on English language learning makes group tutoring possible at scale. This launch also opens up a global learning community on Cambly where students can learn directly from their teachers, but also other students passionate about learning English. 

“Over the last eight years we have supported millions of students learning English,” said Sameer Shariff, CEO and Co-Founder of Cambly. “Our goal has always been to make English learning as accessible as possible. From the beginning, Cambly has worked incredibly well for so many tutors and students because you can access tutoring sessions at any time, from anywhere in the world. At the same time, it is incredibly important that we also make Cambly as affordable as possible. Cambly Groups allows us to bring down the cost for a tutoring session, and allows our students to build a global community of active English learners.”

Launched in 2014 and based in San Francisco with teams around the world, Cambly has been quietly building a massive marketplace of tutors and students to support English learning. There are more than 1.5 billion people across the globe actively trying to learn English. Cambly is a marketplace that matches students who want to learn English with their perfect English tutor.

Cambly is now one of the largest English language schools in the world. The model is simple: students pay a subscription fee to access the service, and tutors are paid for time they spend speaking with students. All language sessions can be accessed directly on desktop or with the Cambly mobile app. Cambly is now used in more than 150 countries, making it one of the most global, on-demand marketplaces in the world.
