I’m trying to really buckle down and boost my Japanese knowledge because I’m under a time limit to get this language mastered. A lot of youtube Japanese teachers recommend italki as a good resource for practicing speaking in Japanese, which is said to help a lot.
Unfortunately, I’m also a college student with a tight budget. I can afford to pay for italki if I cut corners in other places, but my question is, is it worth it?
Has anyone here used italki? What were your experiences? Was it useful overall? Are there other similar programs I could use to speak with someone in Japanese that you would recommend?
Edit: This is so helpful, everyone, thank you!
