One of the interesting facts connected with the work in foreign freelance exchanges is the way of hourly rate. It is unusual for Russian platforms. To find something like that in the Russian freelance exchanges is difficult. However, such tendency exists in the foreign platform.

So, you should know how to write and to speak correctly. Perhaps, at the beginning your friends who know a foreign language can help you but then you will get complications and they are serious. Sometimes an employment wants to discuss with you peculiarities of doing the project through audio or video chat.
