    Some mistakes:

    - click *** JOIN LESSON button

    - the new tutorial *of* our new interface.

    - by *allowing* your microphone and camera

    - you will *lead to* the italki classroom

    - but show the exact time the lesson *has* taken.

    - You can also *click*ing*   (Oh, deary me!!! Level A1 mistake that one!!!!!)   Ouch!!!!! 

    - you *may* click    (A native speaker would not use "may" here!)

    I could go on, but I think you get the idea from the few examples I've highlighted!

    (For your information, I worked as an IELTS Speaking Test Examiner for more than 5 years in Hong Kong and Japan - and I also marked the IELTS Written Test in Hong Kong for 2 years. I've also worked as an Examiner for Cambridge University for many years, especially for FCE, CAE, CPE Oral Exams - as well as KET and PET Exams.) I'm an exam specialist in FCE, CAE and CPE and I've been teaching IELTS since 1985 - mainly to private students in all 8 countries I worked in - including the UK!)

    An even more concerned student and teacher of English (now that I've looked at the mistakes in more detail!!!)

    All the best!

    I tried italki first time, could not get audio to work or function properly. The settings section has nothing to control or test audio which is bizarre and honestly the strangest thing I have ever seen as the whole platform is about audio, 

    Was very disappointed with the first experience and cannot get the site to work on their app and cannot re-book a lesson

    The English used on this New Interface was definitely not written by a native English speaker and is full of terrible mistakes everywhere! You need to get a native English speaker to look at everything on the New Interface and modify it, so that it looks and sounds like English because, at the moment, it's absolutely appalling!!!

    A rather concerned student and teacher of English!

    Cheers!
