Something like it, but simpler.

That's because it's free Christi
All you need to do is join, and you'll be able to see the "reading" tab in the upper toolbar. Here's a video to help demonstrate reading; we don't have a proper FAQ yet, but please feel free to message me at the site after you join. I'm leosmith there too.

There still aren't many teachers on LT because we're pretty new. Between one and two hundred I think. But if you'd like to use instant lessons with your current teachers, they are welcome to join. It's a pretty easy process. I like to see who's online in my skype contacts, then ask them to log on LT so we can do an instant lesson
As a reminder, we have free chat that is specifically designed for language exchange. It's based on Hellolingo, which used to be the most active instant language exchange site online, but sadly was retired recently.
Axon wrote:You don't have to be very specific if you don't want to, but Hellolingo posted some rather shocking numbers about how much they were spending on maintaining the website vs how much was projected to come in if there had been donations, premium membership, etc. Six figures vs three figures. All the other live chat language exchange sites have met similar fates. Is there hope that Language Tools will avoid that?
