This is episode D from SEASON 2 (S2). An informational articles including useful information to learn, improve and maintain your Spanish language.
In this episode I would like to introduce you to a iTalki.com language community. iTalki great you with 11 pre-defined language interfaces with even more to chose from under “More Languages”. Should English be not your first choice, feel free to change the pre-define language in upper left corner.
iTalki.com is an online language learning service which uses community. We will concentrate here on free Spanish resources. It is therefore indispensable to register (for free) to use the full potential of this webpage. You log-in with your Facebook account or sign-up as a new user with your email address. I’ve chosen the later. It took me only 2 minute including the confirmation of my email and answering to few questions to set up my user profile.
iTalki propose not only to learn a language but also to practice it within a community. Native speakers (teachers) can be searched, contacted and online lessons (via Skype) can be agreed. Unfortunately, it is not for free. However, the language community where you can practice your language skills is free. There are online discussions/forums where you can improve your written language.
Basically iTalki is based around multi-lingual community like Facebook or Twitter. As a Spanish beginner you may be a little bit lost there expect if you want to buy lessons from a teacher. This site, in my opinion, is for someone who already converse in Spanish or has solid Spanish foundation. Someone, who would like to maintain his/her language and keep it “fresh” till next holiday. Should you have discovered other free resources on iTalki, please feel free to list them below in the comment section.
