italki is a global language learning community that connects students and teachers for 1-on-1 online language lessons. We’re passionate about giving everyone the opportunity to learn languages, in the most personalized and authentic way possible.
How does italki work?
italki helps you achieve your language learning ambitions. Find your ideal teacher and book a 1-on-1 lesson. There's no subscription or rigid schedule. Learn when you want, as much as you want.
If you'd prefer to learn without a teacher, you can use italki's handy learning tools. Improve your vocabulary, train your ear with podcasts, and put your knowledge to the test with quizzes. The italki Community is always sharing new content with language lovers.
We don't want to limit your learning. As long as you and your teacher have the time, you can take as many lessons as you want.
Teachers on italki allow you to go at your own pace. If you want to have a quick lesson during your lunch break, 30 minute or 45 minute lessons are ideal. People looking for a longer session, you can book up to 90 minutes!
We also offer lessons for impulsive learners. If you want to learn a language right now, you can book an Instant Lesson and start a trial lesson.
Is italki worth it for learning a language?

Learning doesn't always have to take place in a classroom. Share posts with the Community and receive feedback from other language learners. Use italki's learning tool to discover new words with vocabulary sets, listen to podcasts from around the world, practice with prompts, and more!
