Hello everyone,

As the bots feature won't be released on Android/PC anytime soon, I was wondering if any of you knew of an alternative feature that I could use to practice conversation.

I'm currently studying for my GCSEs, and conversation is a part of the exam, so I'd like to be able to practice speaking it.

Thanks guys,

PJ :D

There is an app called HelloTalk for that very purpose. In the app, you can converse with people in various languages. They say there are more than a hundred languages available in where you can converse.

I'm not sure whether it is available on Android as well (the Google Play store says it is), but it seems like a good application for you, and for any aspiring conversational language learner.

Applications and/or sites that I really like and recommend for language learning are :

What - Is good in teaching what?

  • Duolingo- mostly grammar and syntax
  • Memrise, Anki, or Tinycards - vocabulary and memory
  • HelloTalk or Mondly - conversation, practice, pronunciation
  • Lang-8 (its app is called HelloNative) - immersion
  • Bliu Bliu - audio, music, films, literary fragments

Most of these applications and sites are available in both app and site form.

This is more of a lesson based conversational site but I still think it could benefit you.

Or you could just find a person to speak with.

I would, but there aren't many in England. Well, there are people, but not many who I know that speak French.

Gotcha. That does make it difficult.
