HiNative is a global Q&A community for language learners and people that are curious about the world.

Ask questions, get answers, and connect with native speakers from over 170 different countries!


Audio Uploads - Want to check your pronunciation? Curious about a certain region's accent? Need some handy phrases for your upcoming trip? Just record your questions and ask: let the world hear you!

Correction Function - Have your writing corrected by native speakers!When you post in your target language, native speakers will show you natural ways to say what you want to say.
You can receive corrections to your messages with friends, work emails, journal entries, speeches, etc.

Search Function - Use the search function to find questions containing your search word and have the word translated by Google Translate at the same time.
Instantly search through the 14,000,000 (and counting) questions posted on HiNative to find the answer you are looking for.

Pictures - Not sure how to write something? No problem! It's easier to ask some questions by posting a picture: signs, menus, labels, and even that rad Chinese character you're considering getting a tattoo of--just snap a picture and ask away.

Unlike a dictionary or web search, HiNative gives you customized example sentences, responses to your follow-up questions, and tips to improve your pronunciation. With HiNative, you also get access to the best resource for language learning: native speakers. And as a native speaker yourself, you can help out too!

HiNative supports over 110 languages, bringing the entire world to your fingertips. It's never been this easy to connect, help, and learn.


HiNative is run by the creators of Lang-8, one of the most successful and popular language learning websites around, with over a million users worldwide.



Premium features include the following.

1: Play every voice answer, even those posted in response to other users' questions. This gives you even more opportunity to hear native speakers pronounce the language you're learning.

2: Use bookmarks to gather your favorite questions and answers into a simple, searchable list. Never lose track of important questions.

3: Receive 10 Premium tickets per month to help your questions stand out. Questions asked with a ticket stick to the top of the question feed, get highlighted, and receive more answers on average.

4: Search. Everything's better with search. Search your old questions and bookmarks to find the information you want, faster.

5: Follow any question that you're interested in. You'll receive notifications when anyone responds to a question you follow. This makes it easier to stay up-to-date with the questions you really care about.

За что платим деньги?

Итак, почитала тут комментарии на приложение с 5-ти звёздными оценками и удивилась: какой-то блогер посоветовал, люди пришли, оценили приложение на 5 баллов и все. Что же имеем по факту:
1. Ответы дают обычные обыватели.
2. С ответами не заморачиваются: Гугл транслейт и расходимся.
Премиум аккаунт платный, около 5500 тысяч в год, т.е. получается, я должна платить за то, что я даю кому-то ответ на его вопрос? По-моему все должно быть наоборот.
Вопросов я в этом приложении не задаю, потому что проще найти лингвистический форум, где специалисты своего дела объяснят тонкости грамматики и употребления слова в зависимости от ситуации.
Если вы задаёте вопросы там, то учтите, что отвечать вам будет не лингвист, а обычный человек, который просто скажет: «ну вот как-то так» 🤷🏼‍♀️ и вот это как-то будет зависеть от уровня владения его родным языком, а почитав ответы на вопросы - обнять и плакать. Т.е. по факту годный ответ за 500 рублей в месяц со скидкой - over price. Тем более, что есть бесплатные ресурсы подобного плана, где ответы дают лингвисты.

Developer Response ,
