The HiNative app is a platform designed to help students learn new languages on their mobile phone. Available for Android and iPhone (iOS), the tool allows you to create and answer questions to earn community points and evolve language learning. The service displays questions from other users and lets you enter text and audio answers with your smartphone's microphone. Free download from official app stores, Google Play and App Store. In addition to the free version, the app has a subscription system that offers extra features to users.
One advantage is that you can practice several languages at once: just filter the questions into the language you want to practice at the moment. As with answers, questions can be asked in audio or text format. This way you can talk to native speakers of a certain language and check the correct pronunciation of the words. The feature is useful because the student can choose when and for how long to improve their foreign language skills.
