Frequently Asked Questions

Langua Pro gives you full access to Communicate - our advanced AI that provides conversation practice tailored to your life and interests. It corrects you and builds your confidence for dealing with real-life situations, without the pressure that comes with talking to a native-speaker.

Langua Pro also allows you generate unlimited interactive transcripts for videos, podcasts and texts (the free version gives you 1 generation per day, and access to transcripts added by others). With texts, Pro enables you to generate high quality native audio if you prefer to listen rather than read.

With Pro, you can also save translations of words and sentences, then learn them through a choice of flashcard exercises that help you build your vocab as fast as possible.

In addition, Pro enables you to generate simple sentences that show words in context, as well as short stories that incorporate your saved words.

Have you ever gone abroad and tried to engage in conversation with a native speaker of your target language? This experience is typically daunting for learners, with many reporting feeling nervous, or even breaking into a sweat.

Like with any skill, regular practice is essential to become more confident. Most learners simply don't get enough conversation practice, instead wasting their time on Duolingo or another gamified app.

This is where our cutting-edge AI conversation tool, Communicate, can help. It's made possible by recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, and combines human-sounding voices with the world's most advanced large language model.

Here's how it works:

After choosing whether you want audio, text or both, you'll choose whether you want to chat about your daily life, a particular interest, or do a role play. The role plays are designed to prepare you for upcoming challenges, whether you're travelling, integrating into a new country, or at work.

Once you select an AI character to chat with, it'll start the conversation. You can either record yourself speaking, or simply type (if you decide to type, consider changing the language of your keyboard on your phone. This will make adding accents easier).

You'll be asked questions designed to get you expressing yourself as much as possible. Try to answer in full sentences and don't be afraid of making mistakes.

When you click on the pencil icon, you'll see corrections for what you've said or written. If you're stuck, you can simply write in English and the AI will understand, as well as show you how to say it in your target language (again via the pencil icon).

Communicate is one of many features included with Langua Pro, which is currently available for less than $0.50 per day. You'll see there's a 30-day guarantee, which means you can try it and if it's not for you, get a full refund.

If you want to explore Pro, the first step is to sign up for a free account on Langua. Once logged in, you’ll then see ‘Try Langua Pro’ in the menu. Click that to see pricing and learn more about it.

Whilst there isn’t a free trial as such, there is a 30-day moneyback guarantee. This means you can try Pro and if it’s not quite what you’re looking for, we’ll send you a full refund. Just cancel your subscription from your account and message our support team, then we’ll get the refund sorted for you without any hassle on your side.

There’s also a more limited, free version of Langua. Aside from the interactive transcripts and translations, the free version gives you a few messages for Communicate, our AI chat tool, so you can get a sense of how it works and whether it’ll be helpful to you.

Hi 👋🏻 it’s Alex, the designer of Langua. I’ll answer this one.

My mum has been learning Spanish on Duolingo for at least 8 years. She uses it every day, and has a streak of over 2 years. Impressive, right? However…

She still cannot speak Spanish confidently, nor can she understand it well when communicating with Spaniards. This is because whilst Duolingo is good at hooking you with its gamified experience, playing games on your phone does not prepare you for communicating in a foreign language.

Traditional classrooms are usually no better. All too often, when teenagers come to the end of their studies, they still can’t hold a conversation in their target language (I was one of these kids). Revising endless grammar rules and vocab lists isn't adequate preparation for communication.

What does work?

According to Dr. Stephen Krashen, an expert in second language acquisition, the key is to regularly receive 'comprehensible input'. 'Input' means listening and reading practice. 'Comprehensible input' is content that's just difficult enough to challenge you, whilst still being somewhat understandable. Having a sense of what's being discussed enables you to use the parts you do understand to guess the meaning of words and phrases. This makes learning more efficient.

Langua is designed to immerse you in authentic content that fits your level and interests. Through interactive transcripts and instant translations, we turn content that's beyond your level into 'comprehensible input'.

To help you build your vocabulary faster, we allow you to save both words and sentences, then learn them through flashcards that apply a spaced repetition algorithm. This shows you vocab just when you're about to forget it. By testing yourself at the right moments, you'll learn more efficiently.

Whilst it’s possible to reach a good level through a combination of listening, reading and flashcards, we want you to feel confident to speak and write in your target language too. That’s why Langua Pro gets you having conversations that are relevant to your life and interests. This is achieved through a combination of AI technologies that make you feel like you’re speaking to a native. Not only will the AI reply to you intelligently, but it'll provide corrections.

In my experience, practicing conversations is not only highly effective for real-life situations, it’s also engaging and motivating. There isn’t the pressure of talking to a real person, and it gives you a hint of how it'll feel when you can speak fluently.

Of course, nothing beats finding a fantastic tutor who makes you feel comfortable to make mistakes (we have lots of talented tutors on LanguaTalk). But if you have a lower budget, or if you want to practice in between tutoring sessions, Langua is worth considering. Try it for yourself, and you’ll see a huge difference in your progress compared to Duolingo.

You’ll notice that Langua is part of LanguaTalk. LanguaTalk is an online tutoring platform launched in 2021 by two friends, Alex, from the UK, and Don, a Google engineer from the USA. They saw that many tutoring platforms had major drawbacks - from unprofessional tutors, to unethical policies, to confusing website functionality. LanguaTalk has grown fast due to its focus on ethics, user-friendly design, and most importantly, high teaching standards.

In 2022, two famous entrepreneurs and teachers joined the team: Olly and Lucy. Olly Richards speaks 8 languages and has helped thousands of people through his courses, as well as books sold all over the world. Lucy Simkins is possibly the most well known English teacher on the planet, and has over 10 million YouTube subscribers.

So whilst Langua is fairly new, it was created by an experienced team that’s passionate about language learning. With Langua, the commitment to exceptional quality and design remains. The goal is to enhance the tool every month - we welcome feedback and ideas.

Langua is flexible: you can learn for a few minutes a day, or immerse yourself for hours. Research has shown that the key to successfully learning a language is consistency. So we encourage you to do at least 5 minutes a day if possible. The beauty of audio content is you can listen whilst doing the dishes, exercising, etc. You’d be surprised how much listening you can squeeze into your days. Other activities like having conversations, reading the transcripts, and learning vocab with flashcards are recommended, but optional.

Langua is mobile-friendly. Everything is laid out simply, making it accessible for all ages. We’re also constantly improving the software based on user feedback.

Our interactive transcripts and chat features leverage some complex tech. In testing, we’ve found that certain less popular browsers like Edge can struggle to keep up. Google Chrome works the best, and Safari works well on Apple devices. You'll also need a reliable internet connection.

Langua employs the most advanced AI technology on the planet to generate transcripts that are as accurate as possible. It can struggle with names and when words are not spoken clearly - AI is no better than humans at transcribing mumbling, or poorly pronounced words. Due to the continuous nature of spoken language, the AI can also have trouble working out where to add full stops. Accurate transcription, combined with one-click translation, allow you to follow content that would otherwise be too difficult for you. The short AI stories aren’t going to win awards, but they will aid your understanding and retention of new words and phrases by placing these in context.
