A Unique Q&A Experience

The HiNative app provides users with a unique and extremely helpful question and answer experience by giving them a platform in which they can pose culture and language-based questions. The answers all come from native speakers so you know you're getting the best information out there. This is something a regular dictionary or language book probably won't be able to give you and if it does it will require plenty of time looking for the answer on your part.

Now, what's cool is that you're able to ask all these questions and get answers but you can also give back by providing answers yourself and acting as a native speaker for your language.

The app is free to use and requires the latest iOS updates. It currently has an almost perfect customer rating of 4.5 out of five stars and in its last update it added a new feature that allows you to get feedback regarding your pronunciation. This feedback is of course given by a native speaker.
