  • Bad Banning Policy

    By 良好用户名
    Hi, Just wanted to jump on here and say this app will not ban people who show hate speech and racism. But if you have a slight conversation around dating or slang they will ban you for sex talk permanently esp while sending you a text that you only are banned 3 says. I’ve met people that were openly racist and reported them and they say “they don’t have evidence”. But Whilst having a conversation my friends phone got hot and she said her phone is so hot, and then my other friend who bought another person something made a joke saying haha I am your sugar momma. Call me mother. And I get permanently banned? Bc I’m the room host????This app - learning from my friends - if you talk about anything remotely political. Enter ur own risk it’s also hella expensive. Their support team also doesn’t help you. Even though you show them evidence all they do is speak like robots.
  • Censorship

    By M@/(0/m
    When I moved from the USA to CHINA, HELLO TALK changed. The search bar is removed in China and certain topics do not appear in the feed. Boo. Also at one point they wanted to hire translators or live streamers or something and messaged me to apply. I never heard back, so also boo.
  • 2 cents

    By nonicknametakenyet
    I used HelloTalk heavily to practice a couple of languages and some features are very nice. You basically have to have a paid account to do much serious language learning as translations and transcriptions are mostly locked behind a paywall. The major cons are the numerous bot accounts. It’s not an exaggeration to say that in a day most of your interaction may come from spam accounts. The last straw for me was the app’s claim to foster a political free environment. But that’s not how the community is enforced. Feel free to spout all the propaganda you wish as long it’s positive of the communist party of China. I would spend my money elsewhere on a friendlier app, like Tandem.
  • Great app for learning languages, DEFINITELY has flaws

    By Halhsnsbsyabshskapa
    had this app for about 7 years and it’s probably the best one for learning languages. However it hasn’t progressed much in a lot of time. Be extremely careful with what you say however… just 1 out of context message can get reported and they will automatically ban you with no chance to appeal the ban. They are also awful at responding to messages on the app (recommend emailing them)
  • Overall is great, but a little bit improvements is needed.

    By Janelle3656
    I really hope that I can log on both from iPad and iPhone, and I really hope that the Language Talks history can be updated between different devices.
  • It's not bad but not the best

    By nikk2476
    This app is really good and i mean really good though there is some toxicity and stuff but that's not the apps fault but really it's the fact that in almost every single learning app you have to pay for better stuff and at this point it's annoying like there is really no point in making this awesome stuff and you have to pay for something like that.
  • Used to be great

    By Z8395002
    I’ve been using this app for years and enjoyed all the interactions I’ve had. Unfortunately, this company has fallen prey to the “subscription model”. Basically every single update nowadays just cuts back on features and puts them behind the paywall. For example, you used to be able to search for language learners who are near you, which is the main feature I got this app for. Then they limited you to only seeing the 3 most recent near you posts. Now, you can’t even interact with the near you posts unless you upgrade to their stupidly expensive VIP membership. I’d be more than happy to buy a membership if it was reasonably priced. Maybe 3 bucks a month? But 13 dollars a month!? That’s insane. I’m so sick of apps just stripping away features these days. Shouldn’t have updated I guess.
  • Constant subscription ads

    By \aa67676767
    I love when I get kicked out of moment I’m working on because hellotalk believes begging for a subscription is more important.
  • Ummm…

    By babyjeongin
    I find the concept of interacting with people and exchanging languages ​​interesting, but a lot of people turned this app into a dating app, which I find disgusting, nobody wants to date you, you stupid old men with nothing to do, for some strange reason one of the users got my instagram and started harassing me :)
  • Come on stage

    By HAKNA1995
    It’s great app but they limit your access to raise your hand to go on live with others unless you pay money again even though you paid at the first time when you subscribed!
