About this app

HelloTalk equips you with learning tools such as translation and instant captions so you can learn by chatting with native speakers.

Why HelloTalk?

► Real language learning atmosphere
Whether you're focused on a widely spoken language or a less common one, HelloTalk caters to your needs. The system smartly matches you based on your native language and proficiency, while allowing you to filter ideal language partners according to various criteria such as age, location, and gender. Plus, with built-in translation and transliteration tools, you can communicate confidently without any language barriers.

► A powerful tool for sharpening your language skills
Acquiring new words through conversations with native speakers is more effective than rigid memorization.

Here, sharing mutual interests allows everyone to freely express themselves and share personal experiences, fostering both language intuition and authentic expression skills. It's incredibly addictive!

I've enjoyed using this app every day for a long time. However, the latest update seemingly removed location/country/city information from the "Connect" tab, which is how I've found all language partners so far and the most important feature to me. Now, the location can't be viewed unless each individual profile is tapped on, which makes the Connect tab useless to me. This is essentially the only reason I used this app and not Tandem. I'm not sure how long I'll continue if this change remains

Edit: the issue has been resolved 👍 I am enjoying the app, talking and checking each others progress is great. Unfortunately, the "nearby" tab doesn't work and keeps giving "Can't get your location." I tried adjusting my phone's location settings, but that made no difference. The app recognizes my location and others as well, but for whatever reason, the "nearby" tab does not work. This is a huge letdown.
