Want to work flexible hours doing something already do naturally?
Nice Talk is looking for English language tutors. This platform is China’s first mobile app that allows students to video chat with a fluent English speaker.
Immersing yourself in a language and speaking it conversationally is the best way to learn a new language. That’s why Nice Talk created this app. Students and tutors can easily connect through video and have a conversation in English, allowing the student to immerse themselves in the language.
