Pick up new language skills and meet people from all over the world with italki
If learning a new language was on your New Year’s resolution list (guilty), there’s still a few months left of the year to make good on it. Of course, hectic work schedules and busy social calendars (guilty and guilty again) get in the way, so it’s hard to commit to a set study schedule.
Italki is an online language social network set to kick those excuses to the kerb. All you need is a webcam (and an eagerness to learn!) to get started. Create a profile then browse the range of tutors available and contact the ones that best fit your language needs, schedule and budget (payments can be made via Paypal or credit card).
You can also supplement your lessons by connecting with native and practicing speakers on the network, where you can further practice writing and speaking, and make new friends at the same time! Best of all, you don’t have to leave your house. Italki works entirely around your schedule, so you can do as many or as few lessons each week as you like or have time to do. We advice to keep your lessons as regular as possible to stay motivated and so you don’t lose the new language skills you’ve learned.
