NiceTalk: Earn $2,400/Month Talking English To Chinese Students

What if I told you you could earn around $2,400 per month, simply by speaking English to Chinese students who are looking for an English tutor.

I earn over $1,500/month with my blog. If you’re interested in making some extra money from your laptop, you may find it interesting to start your own blog. I’ve created an easy step-by-step guide where I will guide you through the process of getting hosting and setting up your blog ready to make money. I’ve also included a special hosting discount link (only available through my link) which will not only give you a huge discount, but also a FREE domain).

What Is NiceTalk? is an application that serves as a platform for English speakers to communicate and tutor Chinese students the English language, while earning some extra money.

Other people who’ve joined the service as educators say the app pays roughly $10/hour.

Now, $2,400/month is based on earning $10/hour for 8 hours straight, 30 days per month.

That seems a bit unrealistic as we definitely need to take breaks and enjoy our weekends, but if you are in immediate need of money, this could be a great way to go about it.

Even if you have a day job, you could still spend a few hours every day talking to foreigners about absolutely anything.

Tutors have shared that a lot of Chinese students barely know any English, while some are a bit more fluent.

Conversations are very basic and sometimes you’ll need to be a little patient when it comes to conversing.

If you were to work with them every day for about 1 hour, you would approximately earn an extra $300/month.

In some cases, that’s a good amount of extra money!

I consider this to be another great opportunity to earn some extra cash!

The only downside is that the website/app is in Chinese, but once you’ve figured out how to navigate through their platform, it all works out.

I myself am even interested in using the service from time to time, not necessarily for the income, but mostly because I have been studying Chinese Mandarin for a few weeks now and I think it would be a great way to break through my educational barrier and start applying my lessons to the real world, in this case China.

If you end up giving them a try, feel free to comment in the comment section down below on how your experience was with them or simple if you have any questions!

PS: Quite a lot of people have been asking what the application process is like. Due to lack of time I haven’t been able to create a complete guide, but I found a great resource that could help you guys get started. I’ll try and update this article with a simple application guide as soon as possible.

Also, there are two different version, where the Android version is in English and the iPhone version is in Chinese.

    1. Hi Shashana,

      Unfortunately they didn’t make it easy for non-Chinese speakers to navigate through the app, but people do find a way. Try using translation services like Google Translate to navigate through it. You just have to upload a video of you showing your English speaking abilities and once you’re approved you should be all set!

      1. Can you guide me what to include in that video? I’m already training students for this same thing. Kindly provide me the link sharing things in detail.

  1. This is a great inititive for cultural exchange and expousre. I would participate in this programme not just for the money but indeed for the experience

    1. That’s awesome Krystle! Have fun with it and I would love to hear about your experience. If you end up using the service, feel free to leave another comment sharing your experience.

    1. Hi Shelly!

      No, it’s not necessary at all. The students may be Chinese, but that means the educators are often non Chinese. I think it’s pretty strange they created the app in Chinese if they are looking to attract English speakers, which indeed makes it harder for us to navigate through the app. But I’ve read about plenty of other people figuring out a way to navigate through the app by using translation services, and once they got in they were all set and started using the service.

      1. Is there a direct link to where we can read about the process? Or a link that will take us to an English page?

  2. I am interested in this post. I am learning Mandarin. However, i live outside the US. Can I still use the service and make money too?

    1. Hi Clydella,

      I’m not 100% sure, but I think anyone can use the app and make money off of it. I think the developers are not U.S. based, so they may have a system set up so that anyone can use their service. You just need to upload a video to show you are a good English speaker, if that’s the case you’ll be good to go!

  3. It would be helpful to be provided a list of steps on really how to do this if this is really an opportunity and not just SPAM.

  4. Hi this sounds as a very great opportunity for a student. I m totally interested in program. I would like to hear more about it.

    1. That’s awesome Medina. I updated the article with a link that leads to more information on how to get started!

  5. Thanks for sharing, I’ll definitely give it a try not only to earn extra money but I usually get clients that speaks mandarine only I would love to communicate with my clients better, I sell real estate for a living.

  6. I would love to be a part of such an amazing program! I recently graduated, and during my undergrad I worked at a Subway on campus, which allowed me quite a bit of customer interaction, many which were foreign. Some people were so disgustingly impatient and rude with those students because it took them a bit longer to order. I would reassure them they were just fine, and don’t let those hateful people intimidate them from their goals or knowledge they have earned and learned. Many foreign students came in just to talk to me because they said I made them feel accepted. The money is an added benefit, but my main joy would come from instilling confidence in these students.

    Do I need to know any Chinese at all in order to participate?
    Is there a fee to participate?
    How long does the application and approval process generally take?

    1. Hi LaDasia!

      You don’t need to know Chinese to participate. There’s no fee involved and the application/approval process should be done fairly quickly. You just need to upload a 30 sec video of you speaking English, and you should be approved in no time. I also updated the article with a link where you can find more information on how to get started!

    1. Hi Amera, I believe so. I think it’s more popular for phones and tablets, but you should be able to do it on your desktop.

  7. I use NiceTalk & so do a number of my friends, so maybe I can help with some of these questions. First, not sure why the app is showing up in Chinese for some of you…But I do know it can be tricky to find in the app store (super easy in android play store) and you have to manually “trust” the app in your settings before it will work. I have an english Lang version on both my Samsung and my iPhone. As far as the application process goes, it’s really quite simple. You just create a quick 30 sec intro video (used to verify your english speaking skills) and fill out your teacher profile. Takes about a week to get approved. Yes you can apply/work from anywhere but bear in mind they are looking for native english speakers without thick accents.Hope that helps!

  8. I’m quite interested in this…I tutored a Chinese lady through my senior center as a volunteer. It was very rewarding…but not monetarily.

  9. Wow! That is so Big. I already went to the site and google instantly pop up the box on the right side of the window and says translate into English. and boom. All are English now aside from some of it are still in english but I will still translate it in English. Thanks for sharing this Pete. I will try to apply here. But how does the salary method works? Paypal? are they Legit?

  10. Hello Peter, Can a person indeed earn 10$ per hour? I worked with another website that promised 10$ per hour but the reality was much much lower. I did get to speak with people from all over the world and had some Great conversations. Thanks!

    1. Hi David,

      According to many other users, you are able to earn up to $10 per hour. Feel free to do some more research on the web to hear other people’s testimonials.


  11. Hi Peter,

    I speak and write in English and Chinese. What is the requirements in order to join this program for side income?
