Connecting language learners and teachers from around the world is a great idea. The company is shady though and has questionable business practices. I had a teacher not show up for a lesson but I was still charged. Also, if you have unused credits, they keep the money after a period of inactivity. I don't think that's legal. It's like buying a gift card, those never expire, why should my iTalki credits expire? You have to purchase them in blocks of $10, $20, etc. but the lessons cost off amounts so they always make a little more. All very shady.
They work with many major hotels to offer a student discount so people take the time and frustration to submit paperwork. I submitted my social security #, student records, official emails from the school, screenshots of my current classes showing my full name and address, etc. This took 4 FOUR hours and did not work, they did not accept it. Super frustrating and no real person to connect with. I HATE this company!
I applied for a job through their site. I was offered the job, after two interviews and lots of paperwork. On my first day of training the company rep kept asking for my bank account number to pay me and I realized it was a scam! A very well constructed one. Angel list did not respond to my numerous requests that they take the ad down and alert others who may have applied. I don't trust them.
