Live Lingua review
What began as a mom and pop style English learning platform, Live Lingua has now featured in Forbes and other reputable mags – as they list on their homepage. They employ around 20 teachers where one review stated they are required to be bilingual but this appears inaccurate, and what second language is required isn’t specified so just a degree, being native and 2 years experience is a plus.
However, Live lingua platform provides students with the ability to learn not just English but you have a choice of multiple languages from which to choose, – 10 additional languages are listed at bottom left of main page, so one isn’t restricted to teaching just English should your language repertoire be impressive. Looks a professional setup that’s been around for 11 years – positive sign .
With an office in Mexico City and Boston, Live Lingua provide full-time support staff which will help you with student problems, technical and academic issues and how to train your dog to fetch! – meet Frida, a rescue dog who’s story is interwoven in the fabric of the company.
They also provide you with access to their tool Twiducate. Twiducate by Live Lingua allow teachers and educators to create a free and controlled social network that they can use for their classes. Essentially a private social network. A place where you can collaborate in an educational manner where students login with their class code and can answer questions, participate on problems, embed pictures and videos and as a teacher you have complete control over the network.
On salary this isn’t clear. $6 has been quoted on Glassdoor under “Cons” and even $5 in the comments of another – doesn’t sound too attractive.
