Do you think that the price rate for few of the teachers are too expensive here? Dont you think that should be bought down to a realistic figure so that all can happily hire a teacher to learn a the languauge they want.
Also another disadvantage of such a high price is that people interact with each other over skype and they involve in language exchange, by this way they learn a new languauge even without learing a penny!
you raised a good topic. I don't think that my price or rate is expensive and I am ready to offer 50% discount for serious students. Thanks,
Why do you ask the question? You obviously think they are too high and a disadvantage.
I don't think the price should be regulated here, it's a free market. If I try one teacher and don't think it is worth the money I try another one. There are plenty to choose from. We have to remember that expensive is not always better and cheaper may not always be bad, some teachers start out at a lower rate to attract students and get a foot in the door. In any case, it is always a good idea to check out the teachers' profile and read about their professional experience/certifications.
I like italki because it offers so much but it does have some flaws. Then again, nothing is perfect!
I'm agree absolutely with Heinz. I don't like to spend time for empty chatting.
My life time is most expensive than money.
Anyway I can help you to start http://russword.blogspot.ru/
This is an interesting topic. There are many teachers to choose from at many different price ranges depending on language. As we don't standardize material we also don't standardize price. So we have not and will not be asking teachers to standardize their prices, either by raising them or lowering them. If you look at competing sites we are actually much cheaper on average for most languages.
Jessy is offering a 50% discount and that is extremely nice of her!!! :)
You can also often find an informal tutor for very cheap that is offering full lessons.
Price should be but no so high as so a man who pay ready seriously teach and will be preparing next lesson i think.
italki is the cheapest online platform. If you think some teachers are too expensive here, probably you have never taken any online classes before. The starting fee for a 45 minute lesson on other platforms is 15 $ US. Some teachers charge even 22-25 $ for a 45 minute session. Here you can find English teachers (native speakers) even for 7-8 $ US.
