The best way to learn a foreign language is to live in a country where that language is considered native. In addition, there are sites where you can communicate with a native speaker at Skype, mutually teaching each other. App Store has a lot of applications that will help you in learning foreign languages, no matter which method you think is optimal for yourself. One such application is Hello Pal for iPhone. With it, you can learn different languages by chatting with foreigners. After a quick registration, you will be offered to watch a short video tutorial and fill out your profile in more detail. Without this, access to most opportunities simply will not be possible. The process of filling out a profile is very easy and does not take much time. You can choose your native language (or even several), as well as specify the language you want to learn. And now you can start looking for interlocutors. For this, the same filter is used by the native and target language. It turns out that you can find a lot of people from all over the world wanting to chat with foreigners. By the way, if some aspects of working with the application are not clear, select the 'Opens' menu item, and here, in the 'Help' section, there are all the necessary explanations, including in video format. If you think it's time to move to a new level – in the settings, the possibilities of making audio and video calls are activated. It will be enough to press the corresponding button in the chat. Although the main function of Hello Pal is chatting, there are many other useful options. In particular, it is worth noting such features as:
- about 30 built-in phrasebooks on various topics;
- more than two thousand ready-made phrases that you can use;
- a phrase constructor that will suggest the correct spelling;
- translation of messages in real time.
It is not clear what the creators of the application make money on, but there are no in-app purchases or ads here. And although at first glance, Hello Pal may seem a little confusing, but in general it is a good tool for those people who are ready to make the most of their opportunities to learn foreign languages.
