What do you like best?
The lessons are easy to follow which makes it very approachable to approach the difficult task of learning a new language. Also, the lessons are developed in association with the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Influences and maintain a high standard. It offers a holistic training approach with speaking, reading, writing, listening and vocabulary building. I like the fact that it allows me take personal notes while learning.
What do you dislike?
I would like to experience a more interactive module with hello-hello. It does a great job of teaching the basics of a language but it would be even more useful with the inclusion of more lessons that can provide the simulation of real life experience of talking to someone on a daily basis in that language. Also, I would really like to see the range of languages to be broadened. Currently there are 13 languages that you learn with hello-hello. It would be great if the number of languages that are taught with hello-hello are expanded.
Recommendations to others considering the product
If you are trying to learn any of the 13 languages included in hello-hello, it's very much worth giving a try. I had great fun learning Spanish and felt more confident in my ability to communicate in Spanish after I started using hello-hello.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I was particularly trying to learn Spanish using hello-hello. This was a requirement for me as I had to go to South America for the purpose of teaching and learning in the last quarter of 2015 for a couple of months. Hello-hello was very useful for me.
