Verbling is a language learning platform where you can find and book classes directly from a teacher. It’s very similar to italki with a few minor differences. Unfortunately, on Verbling, the cost of lessons are generally higher and the number of teachers to choose from fewer. Still, it’s a fairly good option for finding a teacher.
Professional teachers that have to submit an application
Doesn’t use Skype for lessons
Cheaper than most options, but more expensive than italki
Teachers are experienced and professional.
No need to deposit money or buy credits first. Can simply pay one lesson at a time. Also has many payment options including Bitcoin.
Well designed platform that makes booking lessons easy.
I DON’T LIKE…
Lessons are more expensive compared to italki.
Far fewer teachers to choose from compared to italki.
Fairly expensive if you’re only looking for conversation practice.
The cost of lessons varies depending on the teacher and the language. The average cost for an hour long Spanish class is $18, for French it’s $24, and for German it’s $31. There are many other languages available as well.
