Frequently Asked Questions

If you want to become fluent as fast as possible, we believe that 1-on-1 tutoring with an experienced tutor is the most effective approach. But not everyone can afford this, and even for folks who have a LanguaTalk tutor, we wanted to help them make progress in between their sessions. So we put thousands of hours into building Langua.

Langua isn’t an app (yet), but it works just like one and is mobile-friendly. It leverages the world’s most advanced AI technology, and enables you to learn in multiple ways:

  • Build your confidence in speaking, listening and writing by having conversations. Our AI is trained to ask you questions that get you expressing yourself about your life and interests. It’s mind-blowing.
  • We show you podcasts and videos that match your level and interests. These have been carefully curated and categorised by experienced teachers. You can also import texts and videos easily.
  • As you listen, you can read and interact with a transcript that highlights each word as it’s spoken. This enables you to learn from content that would otherwise be too difficult to follow.
  • Instantly translate words, and sentences, or generate sentences that use a given word, helping you build your understanding.
  • Save any words or sentences, and learn them in the most efficient way using flashcards. A spaced repetition algorithm tests you on vocab just when you’re about to forget it. You can also read short stories that incorporate your saved words, helping you learn through context.

Langua has both free and paid plans. Currently, the following languages are available: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, and Romanian. More languages will be added soon.

You can try Langua for free here.

Let’s start with tutoring. The price per lesson depends on which tutor(s) you choose. Prices can range anywhere from 10 USD (€9/£8) to 50 USD (€46/£40) per lesson. The average varies by language. It's typically cheaper than in-person classes as tutors don't have to travel and often live in countries with a lower cost of living. We believe it’s unethical to have high commission, so you’ll get better value than on other sites, which often take a huge cut. You can use the price filter to see tutors who are within your budget.

Langua has a freemium model: you can access a limited version of the software for free, or you can get a monthly or annual subscription to access all features. You’ll need to create an account to see pricing based on your country and currency. It typically works out at less than $0.50 per day, so it’s considerably cheaper than other methods and is excellent value.

1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak languages fluently. That said, some students have other, more specific goals. Tell your tutor what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your needs. Most tutors will be able to adapt to whatever goal you have, whether you're learning for family, business, travel, exams, or just for fun! You can focus on whatever areas you want to improve, whether this be grammar, pronunciation, confidence when speaking, or something else. If a tutor cannot help with a specific thing, like exam preparation, this will be stated on their profile.

When you create an account, you’ll be given a credit for a 30-minute free trial session. Most tutors accept this credit, whilst some choose to charge a small fee for trials.

The trial is there for you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in your target language as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!

After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.

Most of the tutors on LanguaTalk are able to teach students of all levels (A1-C2). When you click on a tutor's profile, below their video you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners (but most can!)

Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Students sometimes take LanguaTalk lessons to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Please note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.

All lessons on LanguaTalk are taught online, via video call (or voice only if you prefer). Not only does learning online save travel costs, but you gain access to the best tutors from all over the world. Whilst students occasionally prefer in-person learning, the vast majority of students report being pleasantly surprised by the experience of learning with a tutor online. You can do all the things you’d do if you were in the same room as your tutor. Book a trial session and see if you agree!

We have hundreds of talented tutors. So the choice can sometimes be a little overwhelming. Above the tutor profiles, you’ll see an availability filter. Here you can select when you’re free, and you’ll instantly see tutors who match your schedule. Sometimes tutors may be busy during the current week, so you may need to click the arrow to go to the next week.
