How italki is Helping Me Learn Spanish
There is only way to learn to speak a language: speak it, speak it, and speak it some more.
While the easiest way to immerse yourself in a language is to travel – or, better yet, move – to a country where the language is spoken, all is not lost for those of us who can’t do that just yet. Thanks to the wonders of Skype and free websites like italki.com, we can immerse ourselves in any language from the comfort of our living room couches! (Actually, in my case, it’s the dining room table. I still haven’t quite mastered the art of using a laptop on my actual lap.)
If you’re looking to ramp up your language learning, then you might want to consider signing up for italki.

Check out the following music video created by our italki member Brian Kwong and his friends from the +1 Challenge (who are all italki members). This happy little video also features many of our italki Japanese Teachers including Noriko, Mayumi, Hanoko, Hiroshi, and Yuri who are singing, dancing, and doing all sorts of goofy things while signing a fun little Japanese tune.
It just goes to show you that…
Learning Language is more fun with friends! : )
The other great thing about this video is that it shows what can be done when like-minded people are able to connect with one another to make language learning fun! This is exactly the reason why we built italki – to make human connections between language learners and language teachers. We wanted to say thanks again to Brian and his friends from the +1 Challenge and our Japanese teachers who helped create this fun little video.
