Italki is an online language learning platform that allows you to connect with language teachers and book classes over Skype, Zoom, or iTalki’s own video chat platform. The teachers are all independent: iTalki is simply the platform that connects students and teachers. And, good news: there are several teachers from Portugal on iTalki. Not many, unfortunately, but a few. There are also plenty more from Brazil as well as one or two from other Portuguese-speaking countries like Mozambique and Angola. (Note: select from: Portugal to show teachers from Portugal otherwise you’ll see a lot of results from Brazil). Most teachers offer several different types of classes including conversational practice, test preparation, business Portuguese, and normal one-on-one lessons in Portuguese. Some also offer Portuguese for kids. There are two different types of teachers on iTalki: professional teachers and community tutors. Professional teachers have a qualification or teaching experience in a school whereas community tutors are simply native or advanced level speakers who teach. Many of them are just as good as any of the professional teachers. So, you can do all of your lessons through iTalki or you can use iTalki to complement a course you’re studying. It’s particularly helpful for conversational practice, which is something many people don’t get to do a lot.
