If you are a foreign language enthusiast and love using any means to learn a new language that italki might be of interest for you. It’s a new feature from Language Teacher Marketplace that lets you discover new learning partners and teachers. This is just a touch different as it lets teachers register themselves to teach a community of over 400,000 learners. Those who register to teach a language can set their own rates and get paid through italki’s payment system.
It’s good to have such services that are of benefit for both the teachers and learners. Both can make use of the Web as an effective tool to expand and share knowledge across borders in the way that best suits each.
