Receiving Daily Speaking Exercises, Get Personalized Feedback

PROS: Speaktize helps English learners practice the skill that they need most—speaking! Users can choose from TOEFL/IELTS, Work, Travel, and Job Interview themed questions. Each weekday learners receive a speaking exercise with new idioms and vocabulary. Within 24 hours, students receive feedback on their pronunciation, word choice and grammar including links to helpful resources and videos. Students can book a lesson for more clarification if needed.

CONS: Speaktize is not a human teacher. Speaktize is NOT conversation practice and cannot replace regular speaking practice.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I created Speaktize 🙂



Free chat with random native speakers in English, Spanish and French

On Lingbe, you can make or take phone calls with random native speakers in English, Spanish and French.

PROS: No searching through profiles, scheduling meetups or back-and-forth. Simply press the button and voila, start practicing with a native speaker. It’s easiest to find partners in Spanish and English.

CONS: Without video and text chat, it can be difficult to understand your partner if neither one of you have a good level of fluency in the common language. Since you’re randomly paired, your speaking partner may not share your interests.
