As with any subject, it’s also important to complement that learning with practice to exercise those new skills. For language education, that means having actual conversations with real English speakers.

If you are having trouble recording a video, first make sure that you are accessing Cambly through the latest version of the Google Chrome web browser on a computer or laptop (the mobile app is just for students, not tutors). To test whether your system is compatible with our video chat system, go here: http://tokbox.com/tools/connectivity/.

Please be sure to keep all other applications closed, as some may “steal” your mic/camera from Cambly.

We are careful to protect our current tutors by not onboarding too many new tutors until we have the demand for them. That way, once accepted, you can be sure to have plenty of calls and students. Please just hang tight, and we’ll email you once your application is approved. Thank you so much for your patience!
