Curious to speak with someone about it.

 

Cheers.

I don't, but I have done so in Canada. Might consider doing it here as well (using the same online platform) if/when my translation work dies down.

So were you teaching ESL online?  What platform?  I've always been curious how well that actually works; pronunciation, for example, seems hard to teach over a computer...

Hey lencho. By "online", I mean using a webcam with Skype. Sounds just fine. The platform I was using was italki.com. If you don't have credentials as a language teacher, you can sign up as a language tutor and help with conversation practice. The platform has several sections, including a lesson schedule with built-in reminders and payment options (you set your own schedule and price), a general forum, a place to write stuff and be corrected by natives, a place to ask language questions, another one to find language exchange partners, etc. Everything is free, except the lessons with tutors/teachers. The site makes money off of commissions when tutors/teachers get paid. If you have any other questions, shoot.

For anyone wondering if italki is a good option for them, here's an excellent detailed review of italki from the founder of Fluent in 3 Months: http://www.fluentin3.../italki-review/
