The name “Busuu” comes from the Busuu language in Cameroon, a language that has almost disappeared. A group of staff from Busuu visited Cameroon a few years ago to meet the Busuu-speaking community and preserve the language. We have also created a language course for you to learn Busuu. It was founded by Bernhard Niesner and Adrian Hilti in 2008. The company grew rapidly and became one of the world’s most famous language education brands with over 90 million users worldwide.
In 2015, Busuu partnered with McGraw-Hill Education, one of the world’s largest and most prestigious educational companies. Busuu and McGraw-Hill Education have built an official certificate to allow students to verify their language proficiency. These tests cover important topics in levels A1, A2, B1 and B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
Busuu for Organization, the language learning platform for schools, universities and companies was launched in May 5/2016.
