Is it possible to talk with someone in Spanish via Skype today through Italki?

I think I'm a little confused about how to reach my target audience on Italki. I'd like to talk to someone in Spanish this morning--either as part of an exchange, or by paying them as a tutor. I'd just like to try it out. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Creo que estoy un poco confundido sobre cómo llegar a mi público objetivo en Italki. Me gustaría hablar con alguien en español esta mañana, ya sea como parte de un intercambio o pagándoles como tutor. Sólo me gustaría probarlo. Cualquier sugerencia es apreciada.

Also, you currently don’t allow others to send you private messages. To change that, switch your contact permissions in your privacy settings from „friends only“ to „anyone“.

I believe you get 3 free trial sessions to try it out. I look for Spanish speakers (community tutors) and then book the 'lesson' and pay for it. I don't need lessons, but I do need to practice speaking Spanish and to listen to native speakers speak it as well. This way I know I'm going to be speaking & listening to Spanish for an hour while getting to know some very nice people from around the word. I've tried language exchanges (free) but about 1/2 of the people with whom I've arranged a pre-set day and time never follow through. The community tutors don't usually charge too much and I find it's worth it .

Hi Elizabeth! We can have an English-Spanish exchange if you like. I am not available today, but this weekend I will be free. Feel free to write me if you want to practice. We can talk tomorrow. Cheers!

Thank you all so much for your help and offers of conversation. I had a very enjoyable chat with someone this morning (Saturday)--not the instant gratification I was looking for, but I think I'm on my way.

It is also better if you arrange an appointment ahead of time. Just use the private messages for that once you have found a partner.
