welcome to somos πŸš€... a creator platform? sure, but more than that we're a social enterprise on a mission to create a first of its kind platform co-owned by language teachers...

teaching languages online is HARD, especially if you're teaching a minoritized language.

language teachers often face a tough choice: pay high commissions to marketplaces or juggle multiple roles β€” teacher, marketer, accountant, and product designer β€” when going solo.

somos isn't a teaching marketplace. we believe in a different model, one where you keep your hard-earned revenue.

we want to simplify your life by providing the tools you need to teach creatively, seek out your ideal students, and build a sustainable online teaching business.

we're committed to more than just developing teaching software - we want to be part of movements championing language, migrant & worker rights. ✊🏾

that's why our paid subscribers can become co-owners in somos.

why? because we don't want customers, we want co-owners who can help us build a new kind of platform and be rewarded fairly for doing so.

as a co-owner in somos, you'll be a crucial part of a global community celebrating languages, peoples, cultures and fair pay for educators.

we're aiming to provide you with the tools to make meaningful connections with studentsfellow teachersactivists, and grassroots organizations, all while having the power to create and sell your own digital language products.

our mission shapes everything we do and how we do it.

along with co-ownership for teachers, we also have a community ownership programme for grassroots organisations and have put a unique entry-level hiring programme in place for refugees living in limbo.

ready to transform your teaching and make a real difference? join somos today and let's change the world of language teaching together πŸŒ
