If Facetalk resurects then this review will be updated, but for now, Facetalk – an app available on apple and android is sadly no longer.
You were required to send in a 40 – 50 second self introductory vid plus some text containing 100 words that introduced your teaching style along with appropriate keyword tags.
Facetalk was similar to Palfish or Cambly, who are still operating, allowing students to hook up with native or non-native English tutors on their smartphone. Teachers would set their own rate by the minute. A degree or teaching certificate was preferred but not mandatory.
From $3 to $10 was the going hourly rate. After you’d reached 100RMB ($14 – $15) you could withdraw through AliPay or Paypal. They paid weekly.
