In this interview I talked with Kevin Chen, Co-Founder of the language learning community and marketplace

As Kevin already gave a lot of interviews about the italki community I wanted to focus more on the italki marketplace which I think has not got the attention it deserves.

Kevin gives a great inside view about the development of the community and the implementation of the marketplace feature earlier this year. He also explains the philosophy behind italki and gives an outlook on the further development of the platform.

Kevin was also a panel member at the second E-Teachers Conference. Below, you can watch his presentation.
