Today, we are happy to make the biggest announcement in Hallo’s history. After many sleepless nights, we are thrilled to launch 30 new languages and HalloAI.
HalloAI allows language learners to have conversations and practice speaking any language with an AI teacher, powered by the most advanced language models. Press a button and start speaking in 3 seconds via audio and video, not text. What’s cool is that after each lesson, you will receive a score and feedback from AI, based on your fluency, grammar, and vocabulary.
At Hallo, we believe we are entering the age of AI like the .com and smartphone eras, and it will change the way we learn and practice new languages. When we know the future, we fearlessly blaze forward.
What does this mean for language learners?
Language learning has always been a challenging task for individuals. However, with the advent of artificial intelligence, language learning has become more accessible and engaging than ever before.
Our mission is to help all language learners become fluent and dream big. Our main focus is to help them find opportunities to speak in 3 seconds anytime, anywhere because we believe the most effective way to learn a new language is through speaking, practicing, and having actual conversations.
With Hallo, language learners can now practice speaking anytime without having to live in a particular country or schedule lessons with a native tutor. HalloAI will provide language learners with personalized language practice, a more interactive learning experience, and immediate feedback all through AI. Most importantly, it will help us enhance the learning experience and make it faster, cheaper, and better to learn and speak any language, all on Hallo.
However, it is essential to note that AI is not a substitute for human interaction and instruction. While AI can provide learners with personalized feedback and engaging conversation practice, it cannot replace the value of real-life communication with native speakers or qualified language instructors.
Who has access to this?
Every language is free on Hallo and every language learner can come and practice speaking with an AI teacher for 5 minutes a day. Now language learners can press a button and start practicing anytime, anywhere on the way home or on the way to work/school to brush up their speaking skills and use their time wisely.
For those who want to practice more and become fluent faster, they can subscribe to a plan and unlock our premium features such as unlimited speaking practice, no ads, AI feedback, unlimited scripts, quality AI voice, and recorded lessons.
HalloAI is very affordable, and we are happy that we are democratizing language learning and making it accessible to anyone in the world no matter where they are from.
What languages does it cover?
Over the past few years, we’ve solely focused on English, and we just released Spanish. With this launch and momentum, we are thrilled to introduce 30 additional languages and become the language learning platform for speaking.
The 32 languages we currently have on Hallo are as follows: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, Arabic, Turkish, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Polish, Greek, Hungarian, Norwegian, Hebrew, Croatian, Czech, Finnish, Hindi, Indonesian, Malay, Romanian, Slovak, Thai, Vietnamese and Ukrainian.
We are planning to focus on these languages first and provide the best learning experience possible. Later in the near future, we’d love to consider more languages as we see fit.
This is just the beginning of HalloAI. We’ve got some big plans and we are excited to continue improving our services. There’s a lot more to come, but we are currently working on content and gamification, so we can help students not only at intermediate and advanced levels, but also beginners who are just starting to learn. Also, we’d like to provide rewards and achievements to learners that practice on a regular basis so they can stay motivated and practice each day.
We’ve never been this excited for the future of Hallo! There are over 2 billion language learners throughout the world, and we can’t wait to help each of you learn a new language and become fluent.
