Young people in Turkey experience various difficulties in learning and practicing a foreign language. Young people have difficulty in expressing their desire and excitement to learn a foreign language, and they cannot participate in adequate activities about foreign language learning in social life, especially in schools. The most important reason for this is undoubtedly the problems experienced in teaching and learning foreign languages. Our young people are exposed to intensive grammar training, but they do not have the opportunity to think and express themselves in a foreign language, especially speaking and listening skills. In this context, there is a need for the young people of our country and international students who are eager to learn foreign languages ​​to come together on the online platform and practice their English and Arabic languages. It is a program that brings together international students and local university students in Istanbul, especially students who are interested in getting to know different cultures and civilizations, are eager to transcend the horizons of the age, adopt world peace, and aim to gain self-confidence in communication and social relations with people. In the project, local and international students in Turkey will be contacted via the zoom application, accompanied by a moderator, and an application area will be created that will support their knowledge of social, cultural, etc. subjects and foreign language learning.
