Lingoda

Lingoda offers private or group classes online with native speaking tutors. Class schedules are extremely flexible and lessons can be booked 24/7 to adapt to your lifestyle or specific needs.

All the learning materials are provided ahead of the classes and cover grammar and vocabulary topics. The classes itself take place in a virtual classroom where you will be connected to your tutor via Skype.

You will get a certificate upon completion of the courses dedicated to a certain language level.

You can try the Lingoda interface and class for a very low one-time fee ($1). Like the regular private lessons, the trial class will last for 60 minutes and will be conducted by a qualified native speaking teacher. Upon signing up, an advisor will contact you. Your advisor will guide you in defining a personal learning plan, upon completion of which you will get a certificate. You can always contact your advisor afterward for any question you may have.

The learning materials are provided ahead of time and the lessons are conducted via Adobe Connect virtual classroom, while the audio is managed via Skype. As many of you have probably already experienced, the voice quality with Skype sometimes varies. Be aware then that to get the most of your language lessons, you will need a proper Internet connection, microphone, speakers, and webcam. Also, as a pro tip, allow some time to download the software before the lessons start.

The teacher usually types translations or other pieces of advice on the chat while you talk, like a teacher would do on a blackboard. The only difference here is in terms of flexibility as you can book classes for your preferred date and time literally 24/7.

There are different types of subscription: the standard option which mixes group or private classes, as well as private and group options which offer only private or only group classes respectively. For each type of subscription, you can have different intensity levels, from basic (10 group classes and 1 private class in the standard subscription) to premium (30 group classes and 3 private classes). You can also buy a set of lessons that will get you to a certain level. The set is valid for six months and you can choose to have them private or in a group.

Lingoda has a 7-day Money-back guarantee.

Excellent service. Bit too pricey though.

Lots of topics (for those learning French like me) and the quality of my teacher was excellent.The website is user friendly. Really good classes.One of the cool things is that you can download for free all the slides in order to prepare for your class and get the most out of it A tiny bit too pricey for my budget though. .

Good classes with great tutors. Be careful with free trial though.

The classes are good and my tutor (Stephan) was awesone. Be ware of two things though: 1. if you really want to progress, you need to spend some time on homework and this could suck up quite some time (usually 1h for 1h of classes) 2. After you paid for the trial class for a dollar, you are pre-authorized for future payment...which will take places if you don't opt out!
