Beta Release of Language Teachers: Pay for lessons or earn money teaching!

March 24th, 2009 | Posted by Kevin in announcement

liz_teachingToday is our official launch of our new Language Teachers feature. Now with Language Teachers, students and teachers can now find each other and pay (or receive) money for lessons.

* For students, you can find a teacher that has right kind of experience, a suitable time schedule, and at the right price. You can search for teachers, choose from their profiles, view their ratings, and search for courses on subjects you want to learn. By purchasing italki credits, you can be sure that your teacher is qualified and your lesson money won’t be wasted.

* For teachers, you can now find students, and earn money teaching them. Create your own courses, and set your own rates. Students purchase italki credits before the lesson so you don’t have to worry about foreign exchange rates or how to get paid.

Now you can learn any language, on your own schedule, and from the comfort of your own home! We have many more explanations about the system on our frequently asked questions (FAQ) section. If you have further questions, you can always write to feedback at

Latest Addition: Free Trials
In addition, we’ve recently added on is the ability for students to request free trial lessons. Students initially receive three free trials which they can use to find teachers and to better understand the system. Teachers can choose if they want to participate, and can use free trials as a way to reach out to new students.

Take a look at the Language Teachers feature, and let us know what you think. We’re actively going to be refining these features based on your feedback, so please let us know what we can do to improve the experience for you.
