italki Raises Angel Financing

August 2nd, 2012 | Posted by Jim in announcement

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve raised a new round of angel funding to help more language learners connect with teachers around the world!

Over the past few years, we have been working hard to improve the website, and expand the italki community. We have now brought over 900,000 students and teachers together for language teaching, language exchanges, and community services. What’s most encouraging for us is that every month more and more students sign up to take online lessons. As we move into this next phase of italki, we are planning many improvements, including new partnerships with content publishers like Oxford University Press. We’re also planning to expand into mobile to allow language learners to study and connect on-the-go!

This milestone is also an opportunity for us to thank all of you — the italki community — for all of your support in creating this fantastic learning platform. We look forward to making italki an even better place for you to learn a language.
