Watch as italki’s Co-Founder Kevin Chen is interviewed about italki on International Channel Shanghai’s business/financial news program Money Talks. Also making a special guest appearance is our Professional Chinese Teacher (and student) Xiao Lei!
“italki came out of my own experiences learning a foreign language. I learned Chinese here in Shanghai. Being in China allows you to be immersed in the language and when you immersed it just means you are using it for real communication. You’re not studying grammar, your actually using grammar. When we (created) italki, we thought about how can we use technology to create that same virtual immersion. And that’s where the idea for italki was born.”
