About this app

Finally, a language learning app that doesn't feel like you're taking tests all the time! Yask is a new way to learn a language that combines free-form writing and pronunciation exercises, a global community of language learners and the most advanced language technology in a way you haven't seen before.

Learn up to 12 languages with Yask: English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Finnish. More coming soon!

Here is what makes Yask so different:

- Increase your active vocabulary by writing and speaking freely.

Many language learning apps expect you to guess a predefined answer, over and over again. It gets boring fast. Yask was designed to allow you to express yourself freely and creatively.

Instead of forcing you to match the "correct" answer, it gives you handy tools to help you construct sentences and encourages you to make mistakes. Yes, you read that well. Making mistakes is the fastest path to fluency!

- Learn efficiently with free daily personalized recommendations.

Yask will detect any mistake you make, and then it will recommend you new exercises to help you learn and improve just the grammar or vocabulary that you need.

- Get corrections and feedback from real people.

You might be learning a language by yourself, but it doesn't have to be a lonely experience. Interact with a global community of language learners like you, receive and give corrections and feedback, always in a safe environment specifically designed to put your learning in the center.

- Have fun with exercises adapted to your interests and level.

Let's be honest, learning a language is fun but it's a long journey. That's why Yask adapts to you on the way. It doesn't trace a fixed path for you, but allows you to explore any word or expression you want with exercises that are just at the right level of difficulty.

- An advanced linguistic engine at your fingertips.

There is cutting-edge machine learning and natural language processing at every corner of Yask. From the sophisticated evaluation of corrections, to card collections that auto-complete with semantically closer terms, to exercises that find all kinds of grammatical patterns, to an internal system that estimates your proficiency.

- Tons of extra features to help you learn better!

Unlock a lot of extra tools and features for free, just by helping others. From dictionaries to new exercise types.

** Unleash the power of unlimited personalization with Yask Plus **

Most of Yask is free for everyone, but if you want to support our small team, you'll get access to the power of unlimited recommendations, fun vocabulary collections and many more daily exercises. And we are just getting started!

The design is very sleek and the exercises are good for practicing writing, speaking and translation. I like the app a lot and hope it keeps developing. The two reasons I stopped using it frequently are that my main language, Finnish, doesn't have enough users and the feedback from users is sometimes incorrect. Less of an issue is that some of the translation sentences or exercises make no sense. They seem to be poor translations. Luckily, I can choose exercises.

Hi Cassandra! Thanks a lot for your thoughtful feedback :) We read it and took it into account for our work plan. We had to stop developing the app for a while, but we're back now and may things have improved! Furthermore, there's much more to come! We are a tiny team of 2 people but we are giving our best because we love this project <3

Hey yask team. I've been using your app for a few days now and have around 200xp. Recently the "help other learners" section have started to act up and most of the time does not load at all. Maybe there is some hidden limiting factor that I'm not aware of on your side or something else i can only guess. I've tried reinstalling the app and changing my ip several times but that was useless. It would be amazing if the app told you what the actual issue is instead of an infinite loading animation.

Hi Erfan! We're very sorry for the inconvenience. This is not a limitation. Unfortunately there was a data issue, but we were able to find it and solve it. Thanks a lot for your report! As a thank you, we gave you a 1-month subscription to Yask Plus for free. We hope you keep enjoying Yask, we'll keep working hard to earn the five stars. ;)

Works really well for getting feedback on sentences in your target language! You get prompt corrections to make you sound natural. The XP system works pretty well, but it's a little frustrating at the beginning when you aren't at a high enough level to correct other people's sentences.

Hi Wilfred, thank you very much for your review! We're happy that you like Yask and that you find it useful to sound natural in your target language. That's what we all want! You can always correct other people's written sentences. Only in the case of pronunciation requests should you wait a little. The more you do, the more privileges you get :)

What's new

* We added a new section to the home screen: Quick Practice. Just choose whether you want to practice Writing or Speaking and you're good to go!
* We made a lot of small changes in the way you help others, in the home feed, in the organization of the menu and almost everywhere.
