Review: Dialect runs the app called Hop-On-Chat. Just to clear up any confusion! This company is similar to Cambly where you are able to wait for calls from students that are online. You pick up these calls on at a moments notice and talk about the subject they have chosen. There is no need to prepare for the lesson and no report to write up after it as well. You do not need a degree but you should have a TEFL, CELTA, TESOL or another type of certification. You can teach from any location around the world and in terms of bandwidth requirements, they will test that during the interview. Their app runs in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. There is no minimum amount of hours required per month and they hire non-natives.
