I've recently started learning Spanish. After trying out a couple of audio courses, I got a little frustrated at the non interactive nature of learning. I had a look for qualified tutors in Sydney, but most charge $40/hr+ for 1 on 1 lessons.
I did a bit of research online and found Italki, which is kind of like uber for tutoring. There's thousands of teachers that are qualified (they also have community tutors, more on that later). The best part is lessons are way cheaper - I'm paying about $15/h for a native spanish tutor 😄
I found a tutor that's awesome at teaching, is super fun and available for lessons in our afternoon (from venezuela). I also talked to a friend who's learning Japanese and has a similarly awesome experience.
They also have "Community Tutors" which are native speakers that can help you wish conversation practice if you're at that level (ie, not a beginner like me). They tend to be cheaper, $5-10/hr.
I checked OZB to see if there were any deals, but it's not been posted before.
