Speechling Review: Learn to Speak a New Language Like a Native!

By | January 28, 2019

Would you like to speak Spanish, French, Chinese, and English like a native? Who wouldn’t? I have good news for you.

An enthusiastic language learner Hongyu Chen joined his forces with other talented people. They created a tool which helps you to speak your new languages like a native. It will help you to improve your pronunciation in a way you have probably never experienced before. The method is called Speechling.

Speechling Review


Name: Speechling

Website: www.Speechling.com

Cost: 2 Options: Forever Free + Speechling Unlimited $19,99/month (You get a 10% discount with my code EASY17.)

Short Review: Speechling is a great tool to improve your pronunciation, vocabulary and confidence. I felt immediately how Speechling boosts my confidence to speak my target language. It also helped to spot my pronunciation mistakes and correct them immediately. Their personalized coaching and feedback feature was also very impressive.

I’m glad they created this app and I believe Speechling will become even more popular during the coming years.


Speechling Review 2019 – Video Version

I have just published an updated Speechling video review on my YouTube channel where I walk you through the process of getting started with Speechling and show how you can use my discount code.

I’m sure you’ll find my video helpful and valuable.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments below and I’ll be more than happy to help you out.

What Is Speechling?

Speechling is a language learning tool that helps you to speak your target language fluently using their unique method. The creator of this app is famous of his challenge of becoming fluent in 90 days in French.

I haven’t seen exactly similar language learning methods before so Speechling is totally unique. Mimic Method is another great tool that helps you to speak your target language like a native but that method is a little bit different. Speechling team is sure that their app is the best tool to improve your pronunciation. They clearly provide a great value for language learners.

The Speechling method is spread out all around the world. People use it already in ~100 countries. Famous institutions like the University of Jerusalem, University of Minnesota, University of Texas, University of Washington and many others use trust in the Speechling method.

How to Get Started with Speechling?

It’s extremely easy to get started with Speechling. You can just go to their website and sign up for free or download Speechling app to your phone. You can sign up to Speechling in 5 seconds by using your email, Google+ or Facebook account.

Then you choose your target language. Do you want to learn Spanish, French, Chinese (Simplified/Traditional) or English? At the moment Speechling team is concentrating to teach you those 4 languages but in the future, they may also expand to other languages as well.

When you have chosen your target language, you are ready to start learning.

How Does Speechling Work? – 5 Simple Steps

On Speechling website you can quickly see the process of using their language learning tool. It goes like this:

  1. Listen to a native speaker (today)
  2. Speak and practice your own pronunciation (also today)
  3. Feedback from Speechling Coach (within 24 hours)
  4. Repeat (in 2-3 months)
  5. Conversational fluency. When you follow Speechling training you will achieve fluency in your target language.

Speechling has different kind of exercises to help you to become fluent. Let me give you a few examples.

speechling review

In “Repeat the Sentence” section you’ll first hear the native speaker saying the phrase and then you can record your own voice. You can get feedback to all of the recordings you want.

speechling review

Speechling provides also creative exercises like “Describe the Image” and “Answer the Question” where you have an opportunity to practice your spoken skills.

Notice that you can get feedback for all of your pronunciation with Speechling Unlimited. The professional Speechling coach will listen to your recording and

Speechling curriculum has of thousands of sentences tailored to you. That’s why their program will help whether you are a complete beginner or already at a conversational level. Their app will help you to reach fluency and speak like a native. I’ll share you something more about their curriculum in the next chapter.

Speechling Curriculum – Helps You Step by Step

You can choose your current level and learn phrases which are tailored for your level. In the Beginner (A1) level you will learn all basic phrases like “I am…” “Where are you from?” and so on. The great thing is that you don’t only see how they are written but you learn to pronounce them properly.

The focus on Speechling is to teach you to speak your target language. So there won’t be a big focus on grammar. In my experience, you will learn grammar at the same time while you are practicing speaking.

Different sections on Speechling

Speechling has thousands of phrases and resources to help you to learn more. So, you won’t run out of resources quickly. Speechling Conversations (see the picture above) helps you to answer real-life questions and describe different kind of situations and pictures. I found this section very helpful for more advanced learners. If you are a beginner, I recommend starting with other exercises.

Speechling also lets you to set daily goals. How many new phrases would you like to learn every day? In my opinion, 10 phrases per day makes already some progress. If you want to become fluent in 3 months, then you need to set your daily goal higher. I really like this feature because it gives you additional motivational boosts and helps you to track your progress.

Who Is Speechling for?

Speechling is for you if you want to:

  • Be able to speak your target language like a native
  • Improve your pronunciation
  • Learn new phrases and vocabulary
  • Get personal feedback and coaching (no video calls needed)
  • Get more confidence to speak your target language

I hadn’t used French for a while when I started using Speechling. I decided to take a few French exercises with Speechling.. I noticed immediately how got more confidence to speak French. I also became aware of some mistakes that I’ve made with my pronunciation and I was able to correct them.

Many times when you speak your target language, you don’t pay attention to your pronunciation. Speechling helps you to hear where you could improve your pronunciation right away. Then you listen how the native speaker says the phrase and repeat. You will make progress fast.

Speechling coaches give you personalized feedback and tips to improve your pronunciation.

Is Speechling Free?

Yes, it’s completely free to start use Speechling. However, if you are serious about learning a new language and want to take your skills to the next level, I recommend using Speechling Unlimited. That’s their premium membership which includes following unlimited daily coaching and many other cool features. Have a look at the picture below to find out more.

Conclusion – Speechling Is a Groundbreaking Language Learning Tool

You have a wonderful opportunity to try Speechling for free today. I bet you’ll love it, especially if you want to speak like a native in foreign languages.

In my opinion, you can use Speechling also as an additional tool while you are learning a new language.

You don’t need “old classroom methods” anymore.

One great idea is that you practice phrases, sentences and speaking in Speechling and then you put it into action with real native speakers in Italki.

        1. Roope Kiuttu Post author

          I recommend that you take, for example, one very intensive month to study with Baselang. Then you can take even 130 lessons and each lesson will cost you less than $1. It’s sick how fast you could really learn a new language. I hope there would be similar services for other languages as well.

          If I would need to name a favorite language, it would probably be Spanish. In my opinion, Spanish songs are very beautiful. That being said I think that every language has its beautiful aspects.

    A tool with emphasis on pronunciation actually seems to be pretty unique, specially thanks to the access to free pronunciation coaching. Most similar apps don’t really bother helping you learn to properly speak the language and at most just give you readings from native speakers.

    Even the free version seems pretty dedicated to help you improve your accent and fluidity. A lot of apps might teach you how to perfectly read and understand a language but they don’t go the extra mile teaching you how to speak it without making it painfully obvious it isn’t your native language.

      Hi Mapprent,

      that’s true. I haven’t seen similar apps before so I was very glad to find Speechling. Their personal feedback feature is wonderful. When you practice pronouncing and want to get feedback from a native teacher they’ll offer it to you. And it’s included in the membership. I’m pretty excited to see how much Speechling will grow in the future.

      Hi Mapprent,

      Speechling is almost free unless you want to have unlimited coaching from a native speaker. It has 10 free feedback every month but you can share their website on your facebook, twitter, and so on to get additional free feedbacks.

      This will give you more chance to try before you feel you really need to become serious to sharpen your speaking! I believe that the “speechling.com” website have much more tools although the app is convenient!

      Thanks for sharing this wonderful tool “speechling”!

      As I mentioned in the text, they have also a free version in Speechling. Working as a language translator or a tutor is an interesting choice because then you can also work online wherever you want.

    I’m wondering if this thing is the same or even better than these immersion methods like Rosetta Stone? Anyway, I suppose it’s unique, as the author claimed, simply because it promises results in so many days. However, though, I’m thinking this is just another way to repackage instant immersion software – and maybe not different.

    Hi Mr. Kiuttu! This article really caught my attention and for some reason, I got inspired to improve my Spanish speaking skills. Spanish is the 3rd most used language here in the Philippines but I never bothered to learn the language, not until I read this article.

    I humbly ask for your opinion. Which method do you think will help me better? Is it the Speechling method or the Primsleur method? Thank you!

    1. Roope Kiuttu Post author

      Hi John,

      Pimsleur and Speechling are two quite different courses. They have a little bit different approaches.

      I think if you want to learn the right pronunciation then Speechling would be better but for learning new phrases Pimsleur is probably more effective.

        Hi Sir! I just downloaded the Speechling app and tried it yesterday. So far, the quality of the app exceeded my expectations and my overall experience is just nothing but wonderful.

        In fact, I just received an e-mail from my instructor about her feedback on my pronunciations which further motivated me to improve. I’m just dropping by to say thank you for recommending this app. Two thumbs up for you sir!

    Them including feedback just within 24 hours makes the offer really enticing for me. When I tried learning other languages before, pronouncing the words like a native was the most difficult to do. I know the words, I can say it, but the just can’t speak it naturally. I guess it’s because I used a program where there’s no feedbacks or coaching since it was just for free. Does this app have a trial version and if yes, does it entail coaching? It’s just that I want to try if its effective for me before paying for it.

    Does it give Korean lessons? This is the language I need to learn the most as soon as I can because I’ll be visiting the country soon and I’ve heard that not everyone can converse in English there, so I have to at least learn the basics of the language. After all, I can’t rely on Google Translate all the time because we all know that it’s not 100% accurate.

      Hi SirenOnFire,

      As I mentioned in the article, you can create an account for completely free. You will get also personal feedback but then it’s only for limited audio recordings. With a premium version you will get unlimited feedback and coaching.

      At the moment they are concentrating on 4 languages: Chinese, Spanish, French and English. Maybe in the future they’ll provide Korean as well but at the moment the focus is on those 4.

        Oh okay, thank you for this. I guess maybe I can check out the free version first. I am trying to learn Korean now because I’ll be visiting the country soon, but I’ll continue learning French or Spanish after that. This could really help me on that, and the unlimited feedback and coaching makes it more interesting. I really want to be fluent in other language other than my native tongue and English.

        Pronunciation has been one of my issues when I was trying to learn French. That and the grammar rules. It was really hard for me because when I was trying to learn it, there was no one to really mentor me on how to do those things properly. With the coaching they have on this app, it could make learning the language easier and faster.

    I just downloaded the app and I think it’s pretty good. It is not hard to use and is user friendly. I just wish you could control the speed of the audio recording though. I tried simplified chinese but I found it hard to catch the sentence that I was supposed to speak out and record.

    Other than that, I think it’s a really good way to enhance your learning experience. I hope they would have korean and japanese available soon. Once again, thanks for the share.

      Hi Nikko,

    Speechling is truly unique as it naturally works to build both writing and oral skills for learning and speaking target languages like a native. To most people, learning new languages is quite challenging, whereas Speechling app has solved this issue. Classroom teaching helps language learners to some extent, but not as much as using tools like Speechling. It’s helpful that a certain discount is given on purchasing this app and that encourages prompt payment.

    I never knew that there could be a language learning app that can be used to learn up to four different international languages like French, Spanish, English and Chinese. I have just accessed the site and found that the tool can help anyone speak those languages like a native. It also helps for the right pronunciation and it’s feasible for anyone to become fluent in just 90 days. I’m already preparing to purchase this app.

      Yes. Speechling especially concentrates on improving your pronunciation. There are many apps that help you to write and read so Speechling team wanted to do something unique. There are some other apps that also highly concentrate on pronunciation like Mimic Method, for example, but most apps are designed to improve writing and reading skills.

    Sounds great. Do you believe it can take someone from about A2 to C1 in months? Does it have vocabulary? I thought I read there is also a dictation feature where you listen to a sentence and then right it down to see if you made any mistakes in order to improve your listening comprehension.

    I have always used the traditional method to learn languages. By traditional method I mean enrolling in a language school and attending the class regularly.

    I brushed up my English skills by enrolling in British Council and tried to learn French by joining Alliance Francse, a language school sponsored by the French government. sadly, I could not complete my French language course.

    If Speechling is a great tool to improve pronunciation and vocabulary, I might use this. Thanks for this great review.

        How we gain knowledge and develop skills have substantially changed these days. There was a time when traditional classrooms were the only place where one could learn, however, these days we can take to online classroom. The best thing about online learning is we can learn according to our convenience and it is also cheap.

    At the sight of the topic, I thought this was juat another version of many alike tools, Mimic Method for instance that I’ve read about in one of your previous post. But as you pointed out, this one seems more different and direct than others.

    I have seen so many good tools here which you’ve recommended and to be honest with you, am finding it difficult to choose the best one for me. I just might have to go with a lot at the same time or maybe just the free or less costly options😉.

    This seems like one of the best apps ever!

    I’m humbled by their dedication to providing quality service and not focusing too much on the marketing and money making side of things. I’ve noticed that the best tools always prioritize quality learning over monetary gain.

    If they put all their hard work to ensuring the continued progress of its users, they’ll attract more and more loyal fans of their app. I might become one of them too.

    The most interesting part has got to be the voice review from professional coaches. It sure is something. Excited to try it soon.

      I totally agree with you! I found out Speechling is a non-profit organization! This explains why they focus on the product! Only a good product will meet their mission “Everyone in the world deserves access to quality language education.”(https://speechling.com/mission). It seems that their prices are very low so that they do not intend to make money. I think that the money they charge is for three things: the operation cost, a small marketing fee, and scholarship (https://speechling.com/scholarship) for people cannot afford it, in addition to their free-forever plan! Thank you, Roope, for identifying such a wonderful platform with a lot of cool tools, such as dictation, listening comprehension, and audio dictionary, ! Very appreciate!
