Lingbe – 4.5
Lingbe is like chat roulette for language learning, instantly initiating voice calls between users who want to practice or help others learn different languages. After your call with another user, you can choose to become friends on the app and continue to message or call each other (although calling them still requires Lingos). As this app was created for Spanish and English speakers, learners of other languages may have more difficulty finding someone to practice with. However, the community is growing, so it may not be difficult for long.
Although it may be an introvert’s nightmare, this app might be the fastest way to practice languages with native speakers. By helping other users learn your native language, you can earn ‘lingos’ and then trade them in to practice your target language. You receive more lingos per minute by answering calls in your native language than in a practice language. Because making calls costs the most Lingos, you will probably spend more time speaking your native language than practicing your target languages. However, you can also earn lingos by answering questions or by increasing your level (through helping more people).
The Pro version seems to give you access to unlimited calls, take away ads, and let you know who you are talking to as soon as the voice call starts.
