    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!

    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!
