Ok, so I was trying to hold off on saying this, but hellotalk is not a dating app. It’s not an app to catfish people, or take advantage of them. People are here to learn and make friends.

The flag right next to your profile picture is your nationality. Don’t put something there that is not you. That is catfishing. I have seen so many people put that they are korean and then they either say they are not in their bio, or try to fool people.
I don’t care if u put it in your bio, it is still misleading.

Another thing is that the language you select is selected for a reason.
It is because people who want to learn that language can look at your posts. DONT select a language that is not yours or that you are not fluent in!
The reason for this is because this is a learning app. You are BOTH a teacher and a student. You can’t help anyone if you don’t know the language you say you do.
It’s not only selfish, but again, catfishing.

Stop doing this and spread the message.

Translate it into your language and post. I’ve had enough of this.

    Okay I agree but there the flag doesn't say where you live but nationality. Not everyone is the same there are people who live in different countries and can speak a lot of languages so why not put it in there? If they didn't know the language then yeah I agree but not everyone is the same. But I agree in some things

    @Freya I understand that and it is a different story when you have been living in the country for years, but I’m talking about people who don’t speak the language and have never been to the country that speak the language they’re talking about If that made any sense

    @xharia ザリア 사리아 I also feel like it’s a different thing tho when people go on this app to learn and fall into love on the way versus people going on here with the sole purpose to date Idk if that’s what ur comment was talking about lol but there’s my opinion

    I am totally agree with you :)) But I'd also like to add that when people post something they should also use the language they learn. This isn't a "must" But that is the purpose right? We are trying to use the language we learn and when we post it native speakers see it and if there is something to fix they fix it. A while ago I read a post about what I said so I wanted to add this. Don't get me wrong please :)) I am totally agree with you, I just wanted to add this.

    @Irmak I agree that they should post in the language they are learning in, but I do not think that it would be needed for every post because skills differ and it could be hard to explain in a language you don’t know But I totally agree with you
