According to the Real Essential Questions of Every Beta, one question that the community should discuss is:

What is the elevator pitch for our site?

Imagine you’ve just gotten on an elevator with a friendly stranger. You have precisely one floor to describe your community to them. What would you say? The elevator pitch is a brief sentence that describes what your site is about.

This helps in visualising what your community is about and what it is going to be. If you have trouble describing your community in one-line, then its a sign that the community needs to take a relook at its scope and purpose.

Please post each submission as one answer so it can be individually voted upon.

    What do you think about this version: "Language Learning is a community of passionate polyglots, language learners, and language teachers looking for information about various language acquisition and teaching techniques, the objective effectiveness of these methods, and the use of software to that end." ? (proposals in cursive) Since I'm not a native speaker of English I'm not really sure if the last proposal ("to that end") is proper usage in this context... – J.Past Aug 8 '16 at 11:50

The current pitch, being used in the tour:

Language Learning Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for students, teachers, polyglots, and anyone interested in the techniques of second-language acquisition.

    I would suggest that at minimum we update this to say "language acquisition" rather than specifically second-language acquisition. – Flimzy Aug 13 '16 at 15:16

I think the teaching aspect has been ignored too much so far (not just in the context of this question but also elsewhere on this site), so here is my version:

Language Learning Stack Exchange is a Q&A site for people who are passionate about learning or teaching languages. Anyone can ask or answer questions about methods, strategies, techniques, software, etc. for learning or teaching languages in general or just specific aspects of language. Both questions and answers should be fact-based, not a matter of opinion. Good quality questions and answers can be upvoted by other users and thereby become more prominent.
