Learn a new language by chatting with native speakers from around the world

There are a lot of different language apps out there because nobody learns anything the same exact way – especially not something as complex as a new language. For some people, the best way is to dive in and start talking, but that's easier said than done if you're not around those natives you aspire to speak with.

HelloTalk VIP offers a simple but innovative solution: Just bring speakers from two different languages into a chat app and let them learn from each other.

It's a simple and elegant solution, which is why it's been getting rave reviews so far. (4.4 stars on the Google Play Store, and that's from more than 102,000 users and counting.) But HelloTalk does more than just connect you. The app has built-in translation, pronunciation and transliteration guides to make sure you're both getting the most out of your session. Join group chats, post Moments for entire communities to see, and communicate in your choice of ways: text, voice, video calls and more.

With 15 million members to chat with versed in over 150 languages, it's the most versatile learning system out there. Get yourself a lifetime subscription to the service for just $29 today.
