My oldest daughter, Meg, loves languages. She is taking formal Spanish via a computer program plus teaching herself bits and pieces of several other languages. She’s a quick study; however, she has told me on multiple occasions that she really needs someone to speak the languages with her because the computer lacks the interaction and feedback of a live person.

So, when I learned about, an online foreign language instruction site that provides teacher/student interaction via Skype sessions, I was hopeful this might be the answer to her dilemma.

Answer would be an understatement.


Hi Guys!

This week we have a special treat for all of our language students learning French or Spanish.

Here are two playlists of songs to help you practice listening and singing:


We hope you have fun listening to these.  Let us know if there is a suggestion you have for a good playlist idea.


We are excited to announce the italki “Culturecast”.

It is a weekly podcast dedicated to culture and language.  We will interview native speakers from the italki community and have them give us short informal language lessons.

Keep your eyes posted to the blog for our Pilot episode, which we will be posting on Sunday.


*We are also looking for great content.
