Best Apps For Breaking Down Language Barriers

Best Apps For Breaking Down Language Barriers

Who hasn’t dreamed of being fluent in every single world language? Sadly, it’s just not possible. However, it is true that apps and technology have allowed us to overcome language barriers and continue to do so with more and more effectiveness.

With that in mind, today we’re presenting you with a number of apps that have helped us to communicate with people from all over the world, no matter where they are or what language they speak. Truly amazing, right?

Practise vocabulary with Twitter App Of The Moment: tDict


Mondeapp’s core idea is simple and extremely useful. It lets you talk with people who speak another language, and immediately translates what you say so that the recipient understands, and vice versa.

The app has been specially designed with professional contacts in mind, although there’s no restriction on who can use it. It has a very user-friendly design and it’s easy to set up once you’ve chosen your default language.


Airtripp is a social media app that’s been created to help you make friends around the world. The app includes an automatic translator with more than 17 languages, so that you can easily chat with other recommended users or anyone you feel like talking to.

On registering, select the countries you want to visit so that the app can start to suggest contacts who are based in those places. From there, you can start to follow other users and strike up conversations. You can also offer to help those who are planning to visit your country.

Hello Pal

Hello Pal is one of the best apps of its kind. It’s an innovative app that allows you to learn languages and converse with people from all around the world. The first time you open the app it asks you to specify your mother tongue and the language you’re keen to learn.

The app has a great interface that’s really easy to navigate and includes interesting features: chats (for private or group chats with other users), games so you can learn while having a bit of fun, and educational content related to the language you want to learn.

Hello Talk

HelloTalk is similar to the apps already mentioned; an app that lets you work on your language abilities. What’s different in this app, however, is that the app lets you indicate your level (to avoid giving you any basic content if in reality your abilities are much higher).

Once you’re registered, you can take a look at the list of available users and choose the most suitable person depending on your preferences (language, location, interests, and so on). There’s also an automatic translator for when you get a bit lost.


WeSpeke Chat is a similar app to Hello Talk, in the sense that it helps you to learn a language thanks to real conversations with native speakers from around the world. On this occasion we’re not dealing with an automatic translator, but in any case the app does encourage communication between different cultures.

After completing a pretty elaborate profile, the app suggests some users you may have compatibility with (considering both languages and interests) and from there you’ll just need to break the ice. You’ll be learning in no time, all the while enjoying a nice chat with someone new.
