Core Values

We built HelloTalk to bring people together because that's when the magic happens. As a member of this unique community, you agree to uphold the following guidelines:

Respect others

HelloTalk is a place where differences aren't just tolerated, but celebrated. We embrace diversity and respect everyone's uniqueness – language, accent, ethnicity, gender, religion, or anything else that forms the identity or experience of another person.

Keep an open mind

Being part of such a diverse melting-pot of cultures provides an incredible opportunity to see the world from new perspectives. Keeping an open mind is critical for building empathy and understanding across cultures.

Help and support others

HelloTalk is built on the concept of language exchange. Other members help you learn about their culture and language, while you help them learn about yours. This mutually beneficial relationship between learners is what makes our community thrive.

  7. Illegal activities
  8. Topics that lead to conflict and argument, including political and religious rhetoric


The content guidelines above apply to one-on-one and group interactions as well. In addition, the following behaviors are prohibited:

We will use our own discretion to remove content and members that do not adhere to these guidelines. These are meant to keep HelloTalk fun, safe, and educational for everyone 😊. See you in the community!
