Recurring Lesson Introduction
We’ve updated how you can book lessons on italki and added a way to schedule your lessons. It’s called recurring lessons. Recurring lessons help make booking more efficient for students who want to take lessons on a regular schedule for 4 to 16 weeks. Compared to manually booking lessons week by week, recurring lessons make cultivating a long-term habit easier and help you stay on track with your language learning goals!
If you want to book recurring lessons, you can select “Recurring” under the schedule method and then “Custom amount” under quantity, then you’ll be able to set when you’d like to have your lesson and for how long.
Currently, this change is only available on the web version of italki for a random selection of students, so we can gather some feedback before it becomes available for everybody.
If you’re a teacher, pay attention to your incoming requests. You may start receiving package requests different from 5,10, or 20 lessons. Thanks to our new scheduling methods, students can book the exact number of lessons they want. Therefore any amount of lessons greater than 1 will be considered a package.
Discounts for lesson packages are determined by teachers. Depending on a teacher’s package discount settings, recurring lessons may receive a discount once the teacher’s lesson threshold has been reached.
We’ve put some example images at the bottom for your reference:
We’ve created a Poll so we can see what you think about these changes! But, we’d love to hear what you think about recurring lessons in the comments section. Every voice matters and helps us create a better learning experience.
