The Speechling Method
With a foundation in our mission, the Speechling Method uses a combination of technology and human coaching to help our students learn new languages.
We place an emphasis on speaking, because of the lack of free and affordable tools for helping people speak. By breaking down spoken language barriers, we hope to increase access to education, employment opportunities, and a better quality of life.
As a technology platform, we’re available as an educational tool 24/7. Speechling uses spaced repetition and sophisticated algorithms to let our users practice from thousands of sentences with real human voices from both genders.
As a personal tutoring service, our certified pronunciation coaches give feedback on your speaking within 24 hours. Advanced students can answer a question or describe an image, and we will give feedback similar to what a private tutor will provide.
Italian and Japanese are now available on the platform with the same features as Spanish, English, French, German, Russian, and Chinese. Performance updates so that the app runs much faster, and so you can learn languages faster. The app on iOS is free, which is consistent with our nonprofit mission.
Ratings and Reviews
Useful Idea! Awesome!
This app is a great and very helpful idea, however, there seems to be “bugs.” Referring to Listening Comprehension, No matter what device I use, there seems to be 2 “tracks” playing at the same time; there is overlap when listening making it difficult to use the app. This makes using the app very challenging. Also, when trying to pause, the app keeps playing; to stop or pause, one has to shut the app down (swipe up).
Can this be fixed anytime soon?
Update: Thank you for addressing this issue offline expeditiously. After multiple times of deleting and re-installing, The has been working well. The App is extremely helpful for learning a language at the various stages, Thank You 😊
Developer Response ,
This hasn't happened to our other users. Can you shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get to the bottom of this for you?
Excellent app for feedback, speaking practice
This is a remarkable app. So many language apps focus on the receptive/passive side of language learning, as opposed to the productive/active side. Speechling gives you a chance to speak the target language and receive feedback in very timely fashion. It’s the perfect app for busy people who want to keep up their language learning but don’t have hours at a time to do lessons with a tutor. Their customer service is responsive and friendly, and they’re planning to add more languages to the ones they have already (Spanish, French, German, Russian, Chinese, English). I’m recommending it to everyone I know who’s studying a language.
This app is very helpful for learning how to speak your target language! It has worked for me and I am much more confident than I was before when speaking French!! I hope this app gets the recognition it deserves!!!!
This app will grow and become as big as Duolingo and lingvist. It offeres what they cannot provide I love practicing my sentences, and there’s so much activities than other apps or websites!
(Glossika tries to copy this app but there you have to pay to record, and glossika is only a website no app)
