I just wanted to update you on Manal, the Arabic teacher. She is amazing. I made lots of progress with the alphabet and its pronunciation. My current goal for Arabic is to have a lesson once a week to learn to read and write well enough to study on my own. Then from there I will switch to two times a month for Arabic and two times a month for Russian. Life is good at PolyTripper!!! Thanks for all the help and encouragement. PolyTripper was what I needed to take my language study to the next level. Thanks for this amazing website!
PolyTripper is a great resource to practice a language that you are learning. The site is easy to navigate and when you write customer service with a question they answer quickly. There are a good amount of teachers (I am learning Spanish) but not too many where it becomes overwhelming. One good feature of PolyTripper is the instant lessons where you can book a lesson on the spot. I'm very happy with PolyTripper and will continue to use the site to find teachers to help me improve my Spanish.
I’ve started to learn Spanish with Duolingo and MemRise, which are great tools to get some kind of quick-start. But after a couple of months you find out that even though you know some words, you are far from actually speaking Spanish. With the PolyTripper teachers it is SO MUCH FUN to be actually practicing Spanish with simple conversations! I love that these teachers are willing to talk slowly and clearly, and I love it when they are so enthusiastic about my progress!
