Is it a good idea to start an English hotline in a foreign country?
The customers will have a choice of subjects to choose from, ranging from current news issues to hobbies and they can talk for either 5 or 10 minutes at a time. I will merely be there to correct (as little as possible) and to "join" their converstation as an english native speaker. I just need to know if this sort of business is profitable or not?
