Refugee crisis in Europe has resulted in a series of social and economic problems. Facing a new environment, the first priority for the refugees is to learn the local language, but it is challenging for refugees to learn new language in an unfamiliar environment. How to overcome the fear of facing the locals and take the first step? Through Re-friend, it connects with the local people for refugees to communicate with. Each person has their own virtual profile picture, which allows users to reduce tension arose from facing each other and to talk at ease. They can enhance their language skills through the conversations.
