“Italki” is a social network site that connects members with other members that speak the language they are learning.  The site (Italki) is a lot like “Lang-8″ in that it allows you to write in the language you are learning and native speakers will come by and correct it for you.  Being a social networking system you are also able to write and chat with native speakers, and have your mistakes pointed out to you in an easy to understand manner.

What separates “Italki” from “Lang-8″ is that “Italki allows for individuals to become teachers and charge for actual one hour teaching sessions.  This is great because the teachers are fairly cheap (4-10 dollars on average) and are native speakers that will be able to answer your questions.  There is a review system to help you decide which teacher to go with.  You can even become a teacher and earn a little bit of money yourself.  This is a fantastic way to find a tutor or become one yourself.

Unfortunately “Italki” just doesn’t compare to “Lang-8″ when it comes to the amount of users.  The number of corrections “Italki” gets in a month, “Lang-8″ will get in a day.  This can be frustrating if you need a correction right away.

 

It is a great idea for finding a tutor, but overall Lang-8 will be a better choice for practicing your writing.
