What are Trial Lessons?
Trial Lessons give you a chance to try out a few italki lessons and are a way to learn how to use the italki system. Trial Lessons will help you get used to the payment process, the scheduling system, and how to confirm a completed lesson.
Are Trial Lessons free?
No, but Trial Lessons are often set at discounted rates by the teacher. This low price gives an incentive for both the student and teacher to show up.
How many Trial Lessons do I get and when can I use them?
When you first register you are given 3 Trial Lessons. You can use 1 Trial Lesson per teacher and you can use them any time you want. Trial lessons don't expire so you don't have to use them all at once.
Can I get more Trial Lessons?
The purpose of offering Trial Lessons is to give a way for students to get to know the system, not a way to get to know the teachers. If you are undecided about a teacher, we would recommend researching feedback about the teacher from previous students, and watching their Introduction Video.
What if my Trial Lesson gets canceled?
If something happens and your Trial Lesson gets canceled, you can contact us as firstname.lastname@example.org with the Lesson ID# of the canceled lesson, and we will reactivate it for you.
