Hinative is a website and application that allows you to interact with people from various countries whether it be about something of culture, language or everyday life. It allows you to ask written and audio questions about the language and answer questions, in this article we will cover some of the tools on this site that, without a doubt, you reader who needs help in training will feel very happy!
Hinative - Question tool
The good thing about this site is that it allows you to ask questions, answer questions, know if your question makes sense to a native speaker. Who among us has never felt any doubt whether any words or phrases we have learned are correct? or is our pronunciation okay? or if a certain phrase or word is still used? this site allows you to interact with natives and people who are fluent in the language, even if you are learning Javanese, Kazakh, Macedonian, Lingala, Malayalam, for sure you WILL find someone to help you and answer your questions.
In the image, we highlight the ways of asking inside the site, in the first point, you can ask how to say a certain word in the language you are learning, in addition to having a written answer, some natives also usually record for you to learn to pronounce well.
This does not sound natural, it allows you to ask questions through audio:
Your question is highlighted in questions of the language you are learning until a native or fluent person answers you, when this happens you receive a notification, by email and within the site itself (important to note that if you choose to use the APP they notify you through notification and Email, you can choose within the website and the App how you want to be notified):
And you know when they answer your question or “Like” your question:
Something that cannot go unnoticed is the number of languages you can add to answer your questions:
these symbols in front of the language indicate the person's level in the language, as I explained at the beginning talking about interacting with natives, this is because you must choose countries that you are interested in (in the sense of learning the language and visiting).
It is important to know that responses receive votes, so don't forget to vote. And also be careful in your answers so that they receive good wishes.
The voting classes may seem a little Rude, and even somewhat cruel, but keep in mind that when you vote "artificial" and "a little artificial" it is not that they are saying that you are bad at the language, but that you made a mistake what you said OR wrote, so it’s important that you don’t get discouraged if you vote as “a little artificial”, but use it as a lesson that something you did wrong, in the image I spoke a sentence in Ukrainian, but I had forgotten which grammatical case to use , so I made a mistake, but kindly answered and corrected me, both with the correct text and with the audio so I know how to pronounce:
The website allows you to add the languages you are learning. It allows you to answer other people's questions (and you earn points for that). It's not a social network that can add people, but it allows you to make friends from all over the world.
