Although we are sad Valentine’s Day is gone, we are, however, very excited to announce the three winners of our Valentine’s Day Notebook Contest.All contest winners will be receiving 20 USD of italki language lesson credits (200 ITC).
There were many great entries, but here were the three that really surprised us for their originality. Check them out below.

In January, our 2nd italki Language Challenge took place, with participants from all over the world, learning languages from Russian to Arabic. They all had a common purpose in taking the Challenge - to motivate themselves to improve their foreign language skills. And, it looks like it worked! Read on to find out how it helped our students.
You can think of our app as the “WhatsApp” for language learning (or Kakao in Korea) or 微信 / WeChat in China). With the italki Messenger, you can instantly chat with other learners around the world on your iPhone. We think this opens up a whole new way to learn a language.
What can you do on the italki Messenger?
Find language partners from around the world (e.g. Spanish speakers from Mexico)
Ask partners language questions (e.g. “How do I say ‘efficient’ in German?”)
Ask for help on pronunciation through recording one’s own voice (e.g. “Is my pronunciation of this Russian word correct?”)
Get help understanding the meaning of an image (e.g. “What do these Japanese characters in this image mean?”)
And much more!
What makes italki Messenger different from other chat apps like WhatsApp?
Language Focus – While WhatsApp is focused on connecting you with your existing friends, italki Messenger helps you make new friends, based on learning a language. You may be interested in learning French, but none of your existing friends want to practice speaking French with you. However, there are lots of French people on italki who would be interested. The italki Messenger lets you connect to them faster.
We have been working on the italki Messenger over the course of this year, and we are really happy to get it on the App Store for you to try out. This is our first version, and there will definitely be some technical issues that we will do our best to resolve – so please be patient! If you have ideas on how to improve the italki Messenger, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
