uTalk Hawaiian app review



If you have an upcoming trip planned for Hawaii then we have an app that can help you quickly learn the language basics. The uTalk Hawaiian app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and provides users with a way to learn quickly so that you are able to make the most of your trip. This isn't meant to feel like your average language learning app, it's not meant to be a translator or phrasebook. Instead this app uses a "scientific" method that will help you remember all the key words easily and quickly.

Become a Quick Learner

There's no need to be flustered or stressed about learning Hawaiian in time for your trip thanks to the uTalk Hawaiian app. The app covers 275 of the most commonly used and basic phrases and words. This is enough to give you the means to communicate in a manner that is understood on both ends. The developer states that the app will actually hammer the words into your brain so much so that by the time you finish with it you'll swear Hawaiian is your first language. This seems like a pretty lofty statement especially since you are just learning the basics. Still, it’s important to start somewhere and the basics are a great place to begin.

The app hasn't been updated in quite some time now with its' last updates addressing some bug fixes, the ability to slow down the speed of the phrases, and the ability to track the progress of more than one user. The app scores very high with customers who have given it 4.5 out of five stars.

The Learning Experience

The way this app works is that you learn through a number of interactive quizzes, images, and games. The app also uses recording, speech, and playback so that you can listen to your accent next to someone who is a native speaker. The app uses a point scoring system so that as you work your way through the lessons you'll be rewarded. This is a great way to also keep you motivated.

I like that with this app you don't need to dedicate hours of your day to learning a new language. Instead this app recognizes the fact that people are busy and may just have 10 minutes here or there. The user interface has been well-designed with the words and phrases being organized into categories to make browsing and learning a breeze.
