Quick question: does Busuu turn me into one of the exceedingly beautiful people in this stock photograph, or does it merely put me in touch with them?

Busuu is Japanese slang for “Old Hag” or similar. So no.


It’s more like a derogatory term for a woman who is considered ugly regardless of age and the U sound isn’t extended but yeah, Busu is an unfortunate name for a language app that says it’ll teach you Japanese.
