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.

Ratings and Reviews
Love it!~ I have a suggestion though!
As the title says, I love this app! It works smoothly for me and even though I'm not paying monthly (I'm considering it), I stil have access to a lot of great featured! Answers and replies are quick and it's a joy to learn other languages as I help others learn as well! One suggestion I think a lot of users could benefit from is a HiNative chatroom and the ability to add friends. I'm meeting a lot of great people from around the world that I would love to add as friends and keep in touch with (without having to whip out social media). A chatroom could be a bunch of public chatrooms made for users to practice chatting in the languages they want to learn without having to do it under asked questions. I know some users who simply want to work on speaking and writing to others in conversation. Keep up the good work on the app!
Great but I have a suggestion
Overall this is a good app. I love how you can talk to people who are native to the language you are learning. And how you can also talk with people who are also learning the same language. There are a few suggestions i have though. Personally I think you shouldn’t have to have premium to lisent to other people voice recordings. Also (I don’t know if this already being done or not) I think you should have something to talk to people directly on the app. And also have group chats with multiple people, and maybe even have something to add people so you can talk to them. But like I said even with out these things It a good app and ill continue to use if these things are added or not😊
Made friends in 3 countries!!
Ok I never write reviews, but this app is so amazing. I am studying Japanese and this app allows you to ask Native speakers how to say or probounce certain words, prases, etc. You can also ask questions about the country itself, culture etc. And people reply FAST. Im serious, its like a race who will answer your question first. It's also been even more fun helping other people with their english, I've had the app for only a few days and have answered almost 100 questions. I've also made friends in Korea, Japan, and spain so thats really cool. And it's only been 3 days!!! Get this app you wont regret it👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
