HiNative is a global Q&A community for language learners and people that are curious about the world.
Ask questions, get answers, and connect with native speakers from over 170 different countries!


Audio Uploads - Want to check your pronunciation? Curious about a certain region’s accent? Need some handy phrases for your upcoming trip? Just record your questions and ask: let the world hear you!

Question Templates - Asking questions made simple. All you need to know are the words, phrases, or sentences that you need help with, and our question templates will do the rest, automatically translating your questions into other users’ native languages.

Pictures - Not sure how to write something? No problem! It’s easier to ask some questions by posting a picture: signs, menus, labels, and even that rad Chinese character you’re considering getting a tattoo of--just snap a picture and ask away.

Get Suggestions - Traveling soon? Moving abroad? Ask the people at your destination the important questions that only locals can answer. Get tips about local customs, famous landmarks, the best restaurants, or anything else you can think of.

Unlike a dictionary or web search, HiNative gives you customized example sentences, responses to your follow-up questions, and tips to improve your pronunciation. With HiNative, you also get access to the best resource for language learning: native speakers. And as a native speaker yourself, you can help out too!

HiNative supports over 110 languages, bringing the entire world to your fingertips. It’s never been this easy to connect, help, and learn. Try HiNative today, and change the way you study languages for the better.


HiNative is run by the creators of Lang-8, one of the most successful and popular language learning websites around, with over a million users worldwide.



Premium features include the following.

1: Play every voice answer, even those posted in response to other users’ questions. This gives you even more opportunity to hear native speakers pronounce the language you’re learning.

2: Use bookmarks to gather your favorite questions and answers into a simple, searchable list. Never lose track of important questions.

3: Receive 10 Premium tickets per month to help your questions stand out. Questions asked with a ticket stick to the top of the question feed, get highlighted, and receive more answers on average.

4: Search. Everything’s better with search. Search your old questions and bookmarks to find the information you want, faster.

5: Follow any question that you’re interested in. You’ll receive notifications when anyone responds to a question you follow. This makes it easier to stay up-to-date with the questions you really care about.

Good forum for all levels

I have used HiNative over the past few months, initially with the intention of improving my German. However, I have become hooked on helping others with their English which I find very rewarding in most cases. It certainly makes you think more about how and why we express things as we do and how that changes over time. Some good relationships have been built up with several contacts where real progress is clearly being made. Feedback is direct and at times almost instant. I consider HiNative to be a great platform for improving your language skills - all you need is personal application of your energies and the luck to find one or more like-minded persons responding thoughtfully and kindly to your efforts.

I love this app

This app is very good for the people who have sentence they need to get translated and learnt quickly.
Yet I would love to be able to private message people. For people very new to the language private messaging would help because then you can have a one on one conversation with someone, instead of trying to keep up with all the answers to your questions.

Money leechers.

Unless you want to pay a ridiculous amount of money monthly, you won’t be able to access anything.
Considering that a majority of the users are students, it is all the more preposterous.
There is only one free feature and that is the “what does this mean?” question. Everything else, including the voice recordings, cannot be accessed unless you pay an absurd amount of money.
Very unreasonable.
