The app and classes and teachers are great but the app does not work over bluetooth. Evrytime I have a bluetooth device for audio, the app bypasses it and forces speaker audio without option to switch. It makes listening and comprehending that much more difficult in a loud environment. Edit: Customer support immediately jumped on the case and ended up telling me they didn't want to try too hard to fix so I should use desktop app instead.

Hello Miguel! Thank you for contacting us in the end! We're sorry if you experience the same issue with other video call platforms (that's why the best solution we could provide is to use a desktop device instead of a phone - since turning off/on a device is not also the best for the device itself). Thanks for being part of italki!

This is the best choice for actually learning a language, instead of playing a video game that makes you *feel* like you're learning. I've been on the app for 1.5 years and have probably spent >$1,000 dollars with them. But I think I've learned more than if I'd taken 3 years of college classes in this language. The money has been incredibly worth it.

I've been using Italki for about 2 years to learn Japanese, and I've found several amazing tutors that I work with routinely. Italki classroom is good, and if there are issues, they permit you to use outside platforms such as Zoom or Skype, which is great. I don't really use the app for lessons, but for messaging and scheduling, it works just fine. My experience on the platform has been pretty seemless over the many lessons I've done. I recommend Italki to all language learners I know.
