Verbal Planet is a platform that connects you with language tutors through Skype. They advertise easy online booking and free or discounted trial classes, allowing you to sort through tutors based on availability, price, profile, and feedback from previous students.
With each tutor you will be able to receive evaluations and track your speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1-C2),
While sites like iTalki and Verblang charge a 15% commission from teachers and tutors, Verbal Planet seems to charge its students a booking fee instead. Compared to other sites, however, it is currently limited in the number of tutors available, especially for less common languages.
