There seem to be an enormous number of websites where one can arrange tutoring via Skype with a native French speaker. In particular, I'm considering Rype App (https://www.rypeapp.com/). Does anyone have experience with it, or with other similar sites?
Thanks in advance!
Busuu is supposed to be pretty good. I've toyed with it and it seems really good but somehow I never got "hooked" on it like I have with Duolingo. I don't think they have trained tutors, but they allow you to do conversation exchanges with native speakers.
Also check out iTalki, WeSpeke, and Speaky. Same as above - native speakers, not professional tutors.
For professional tutors (i.e. people trained in linguistics and pedagogy) check out Verbling.
If you do try out Rype App, please post a review! I'd be interested in hearing about your experience.
