By HELLOTALK FOREIGN LANGUAGE EXCHANGE LEARNING TALK CHAT APP
I’ve been through a lot of apps to improve English speaking and make new friends but this app hits different. People on the app are so friendly and easy-going you can chict-chat about your daily life and explore new culture with people around the world. And there is no weirdo as far as I experienced. I’m glad I found this app. Thanks to the creator.
It says I was logged in at 4am I want I have reach out to see if I was hacked and I haven’t received anything I’m super upset? I’m not getting any response? Really disappointing when it comes to security.
This is Nothing but a social media app for games and dating. The posting of gym fotos of both the males and females says a lot. Also HT limits how many people you can block per day as well as how many people you can report per day. Also they allow someone with absolutely no knowledge of the language they’re learning to be “Paid Practice” for their language. You cannot teach someone a language unless you’re at least a bit better than “basic”. Geared toward dating and both men and women being “Paid practice”! Absolutely zero control in this app❌ disgusting 🥰❌
This makes it very inconvenient to sustain any conversation since I frequently have to change my devices. Tandem app makes that seem less transition and I will stick with Tandem. I paid for a subscription to Hello talk but I can't get a refund.
i download this app to learn french and teach english. tell me why i have to pay for my PRECISE map location not to be exposed to anyone who click on my profile? also you have to pay to see who messages you, pay to learn, pay to translate, might aswell just make this a payed app. unless you have subscription money, i don’t recommend.
This app was amazing I met many kind people that were willing to exchange their language with me I even bought VIP so I could start talking to more people in the lives, but one day I got signed out of my account and got banned, I emailed the support team and explained my situation to them thoroughly, and asked for the reason that got my account banned and they gave me “usual reasons” on how people get their accounts banned. Personally I’d like to know what exactly warranted my ban, so I’d know not to repeat it in the future, but turns out I’m “device banned” and I’m unable to use the app ever again. :/
A lot of fake accounts here. The admin ban users without a legit reason
Update: I’ve changed my rating from 2 to 1. To add insult to injury, my account was falsely reported and it resulted in having my voiceroom privileges taken away. I host a popular voiceroom for English practice and all I do on this app is try to teach and help people and I’m met with further injustice. Also, don’t promote or mention any other social media platforms on your page or you’ll have posts taken down and be threatened to be removed from the app altogether. It is the only platform that does this and it just forces people to use other apps instead. HelloTalk keeps getting worse. I was a teacher and user of the app and voiced suggestions on how to better teacher experience as well as made complaints about the poor customer service that I had received and I was removed from the live teachers chat and from having my classes promoted. The Customer Service team including Judy, Fay in Payments, and HelloTalk support contributed to this unjust treatment and have done nothing to rectify it. They have proven that they are more concerned about making money than the teachers and users that make the app what it is.
I actually really enjoy this app I’m sad that I got kicked from a voice room tho bc my limit was up and I cant message new people bc of the limit if there is a way that u could keep those features free it would be even better or give the option to watch ads for more time and more chats other than that I love this app and I’m still excited to meet new people
I have used HelloTalk for over two years as a lifetime VIP subscription member. One year ago I was falsely reported in August by a group that did not like me. I was reported for sending a news article, relating to the group, wishing them safety due to a current event happening in their country. I wish I was joking. When this happened, I was swiftly reported, insulted, and I lost the ability to not only make live streams, but also make voice rooms. On top of that my account was suspended for three days (I am luckily still able to join livestreams/voice rooms currently). I contacted HelloTalk three times, but was met with a generic “Your account has been reported for community violations” message consistently. This resulted in hundreds of HelloTalk members messaging HelloTalk on my behalf to try to get me reinstated. As someone that is not only a formal broadcaster outside of the app, but also will actually be teaching English overseas, I was incredibly upset that that a key feature to my lifetime VIP subscription, was removed. Friends/members reinforced to support chat, how I talk to literally thousands of people, and try to be friends with everyone in the app. I create zero conflict whatsoever. To this day, I have had no other issues. I am writing this review, hoping that just maybe HelloTalk will remove the community violation from my account after a year of this. I never want to stop using HelloTalk, as the foundation of the app is better than any other app available in regards to language exchange. However, this incident has not only made me afraid of certain demographics, but has also made me terrified to join any groups. I have not done so since this incident. I should not have to be afraid of members. This is unacceptable treatment of loyal users and I do not want to navigate this app being worried that a few bad apples can completely ruin a wonderful experience, as I have seen this happen to others as well. The reason I rated the app a 2 instead of a 1, is because it truly is a good app, outside of moderation I have seen. It is why I still use it daily. I never want to uninstall it if I don’t have to, since I have already bought the lifetime. If HelloTalk support actually listens, then I will adjust my review, however this has left an extremely sour taste in my mouth.
