You summed up my response already. I can talk to people that otherwise, I wouldn't be able to. This enables me to learn about their culture and to learn about different ways of thinking.
Informal classes are one of my favourite things on italki because I love that I can take classes with someone from let's say Mexico and talk about the day of the dead celebration in Spanish with someone who actually experiences this event. I'm learning while immersing myself in the culture.
Hi Casey! Glad to see you still on the message boards. Hope you're doing great!
Samaneh that sums it up perfectly!
Ariana maybe they'll bring instant tutoring back someday!
Placid an album would be cool!
