LEARN LANGUAGES FAST: uTalk gets results because every word you hear is in your new language and you speak, listen and understand from the start.
With free starter words in 140+ languages, you can try it risk-free. Score 100% in the games and you can unlock an extra topic for free.
WHY UTALK WORKS:
1. LEARN FROM THE LOCALS: We record native speakers so you hear every word pronounced clearly. Mimic their pronunciation and compare your intonation with theirs. Practise until you get it right – you can even slow the audio down if it’s too fast.
2. USEFUL EVERYDAY WORDS AND PHRASES. Topics take around two to three hours to complete. But you can dip in for just five minutes at a time or longer. With 60+ topics, that’s a total of 180 hours of learning.
3. KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED: Check your scores on progress bars as you move through five progressively difficult games. To get full marks, you’ll have to know the words as well as your own language.
WHO’S IT FOR? uTalk’s tried and trusted way to learn a new language has been developed over 25 years and is perfect for beginners. But its wide-ranging language is also invaluable for intermediates looking to improve their vocabulary and pronunciation.

Ratings and Reviews
I love it
I love being able to explore so many languages. And in the school where I teach the main languages are spanish, vietnamese, somali, oromo, amheric, tagalog, punjabi, samoan and more. This is the only app I could find which gives access to learn basic phrases in all of them (add quiche and kosrae please). You won’t learn a language on this app, there’s no development or explanation, it is a phrasebook only. But to that end it’s great. I used it traveling in Albania and Bosnia and it really helped. The native voices differentiating for male and female is nice, The games are good practice without being boring, though the memory game is unnecessarily hard. There’s speaking practice too. My frustration is that I only really want to learn a few phrases in a topic. I do want to ask how they are and say happy birthday, etc, but I don’t have interest in asking them where the atm is or whether I should boil the water. But to do the practice games I have to learn all. With a subscription you can make your own phrasebook, but you can’t test yourself on it. And if you don’t buy the subscription you won’t know which phrases are in a topic so you can only guess if they’re useful. But overall I’ve really loved it for what it is and it will continue to be a go-to app for me.

Thanks for saying you love our app and for giving such thoughtful and useful feedback. We also hear your request about adding more features eg games for Phrasebook words and it’s definitely on our wish-list! In fact we face a continual tug of love between putting our resources into adding new languages or putting them into further app developments and we try to juggle them both. We are glad that our language range has come in useful on your travels and with your multi-lingual students. Incidentally, did you know our app works for english and non-english speakers alike? See the cog on the top right hand corner for the range of languages that it gives instruction in - and there’s also a special Classroom edition which is useful for groups of language learners. For any details, drop a line to email@example.com Happy language learning! 😊Best wishes, Sarah
Needs to give feedback on your pronunciation
While this is a good first step to learn vocabulary, I have yet to see the game actually critique your accent. If this feature is added, this would greatly improve this app. Great because it has different versions of the same language, IE Canadian French vs European French; Ancient greek vs modern, and Many others. Other than that, it is not as strong in giving feedback as their counterparts.

We are glad that you like our range of languages and appreciate you noticing the different versions we’ve recorded of the same language - like our five different sorts of Arabic. We also understand that you’d like our app to give feedback on your pronunciation like some others do. But the thing is we’ve been monitoring voice recognition for some time now and we don’t think it's 100% accurate. So, until it is, we are going to carry on using the human ear which is a seriously amazing piece of kit. As you know, the way our app works is it gets you to record your own pronunciation, compare it with native speakers’ pronunciation and then mark your own effort with a tick or a cross. But, what you might not know is that our customers tend to mark themselves harder than voice recognition technology would! Wishing you lots of learning success. Best wishes, Sarah 🌸
I’ve tried them all
I’m moving to Canada soon so I thought it would be a good idea to learn French. I’ve been wanting to for years and tried many programs. I purchased UTalk awhile ago but hadn’t started with it and instead went with the much touted Babbel. Babble was boring me and wasn’t fun so I opened up UTalk. OMG! What a difference! I’ve learned more, it’s fun, I get to challenge myself, I love playing the games! Thank goodness for the snail feature! I like the speaking feature because I can hear the hesitancy and know I need to become more confident. The games are great and prove if you make learning fun and challenging you learn more, faster! And thanks for showing me there is French and Canadian French!

Thanks so much for your amazing 5* review - we’re thrilled you find uTalk a great way of learning a language! We think Canadian French is a great language to learn and, interestingly - like in France - there’s an institute in Quebec dedicated to encouraging the use of French words. It’s called the Office Quebecois de la Langue Français. It once went overboard and complained about an Italian restaurant in Montreal using the ’non-French’ word of pasta! Unsurprisingly there was a backlash and the word pasta was allowed to stay on the menu. :) Best wishes, Sarah
