Want to Learn a New Language? Try a Social Learning App Like HeyPal!

Social Learning Apps the future of Language Learning!

The primary purpose of language is to provide a means of communication with others – a way to talk to one another. It’s not surprising, then, that we learn a new language by talking to one another. Using a new language in social situations helps us learn new words and phrases, correct mispronunciations, and enjoy the skills we have learned along the way.

Until very recently, the only ways to learn a language was to take a class led by a single teacher and practice with the other students who didn’t know the language either, or to move to a place where people speak the language you wish to learn. Classroom learning helps students build their vocabulary, but it may also instill a very formal style of speaking that sounds stiff to people who already speak the language – it can also make it hard to communicate with native speakers with dialects different from the one you learned. Immersion learning is great, if you can afford to move to a new country and have the patience, ability and courage to teach yourself.

Social Language Learning Apps Bridge the Gap between Classroom and Immersion Learning

Social language learning apps provide a third option when it comes to learning a new language. Social learning platforms allows people to collaborate, share and communicate with other users who have more, less, or the same amount of knowledge in a particular field. This means users can learn conversational language directly from native speakers who may have different dialects, and help teach language skills to those with less experience.

Language learning apps also have built-in tools and programs that make learning easier and more enjoyable. Social learning platforms are also entertaining, in that users can meet and interact with like-minded people from around the world. Having fun can have a positive effect on motivation levels and the amount of information the user retains.

Social language learning apps are also convenient – simply pick up your phone and start the app, any time of day or night. This puts the user in control of how often they study their new language.

Popular Apps that Use Social Learning for Languages

HelloTalk

HelloTalk allows users to communicate with language partners via text, voice calls, voice messages, video calls, and doodles. The app also offers a number of tools, such as translation, pronunciation, transliteration, and corrections. Users can engage with, share updates and even ask questions in larger communities by posting “Moments,” which are public posts that all native speakers of the target language can see.

While HelloTalk encourages free-form interaction, it does not offer structured learning that other apps provide.

Tandem

Tandem is an up-to-date language exchange app with millions of users. After filling out a short profile, users scroll through age-badged photo profiles to find someone they’d like to strike up a conversation in a new language with. While it can feel a little like Tinder, the platform does aim to connect and match up strangers with a mutual interest in speaking a specific language.

Bilingua

Bilingua is similar to Tandem in that users might end up saying “Hello, how are you?” to dozens of strangers before finding someone they’d really like to talk to.

MyLanguageExchange

MyLanguageExchange is better than Bilingua or Tandem when it comes to making long-term connections, but it features an old-school website that might appeal only to an older crowd and not necessarily to students who are more accustomed to the instant and anonymous feel of modern apps. Its database features people interested in language exchanges, along with short bios and details of what they are looking for in a “study buddy.”

HeyPal™ App from Clickstream

The HeyPal™ app from Clickstream is one of the most exciting social learning apps for picking up a new language. This language learning platform focuses on “language exchanging” between users from around the world. Instead of using quizzes and other traditional language-learning tools, HeyPal™ matches learners together with native speakers, which makes the whole process of learning a language more fun, engaging, and faster. HeyPal™ also offers social media features, including posts and media uploading to “language boards” that allow participants to post original content and fully immerse themselves in the language they are learning.

HeyPal™ has made big strides and is still growing. Between its beta launch in the iOS App Store in February 2021 and July 6th, HeyPal™ received a total of over 2.2 million messages, more than 470,000 translations, over 13,000 posts, exceeded 110,000 likes and has over 38,000 downloads.

The app has also taken the market by storm, growing nearly 22% in a single week in 2021, from 54,700 on June 22nd to 66,500 app downloads on June 30th. The growth rate of almost 22,000 new downloads blew away the competition, including apps that are much larger and have been around a while. Clearly, HeyPal™ will be at the top of the app store after its Android worldwide launch in the fall of 2021.

As of July 27th HeyPal has a reach of over 3,000,000 Messages, 650,000 Translations, 140,000 Likes, 17,000 Posts and 86,000 Downloads in Just Over 5.5 Months of Beta Launch.

“There’s such positive momentum with the usage and feedback of HeyPal™ and it’s apparent consumers are looking for different and fun ways to learn a new language. What’s exciting about HeyPal™ is all the messages back and forth between people meeting each other from different parts of the world and it’s really incredible to see the social aspect of engagement and learning. It is our belief the true launch of HeyPal™ will be upon the Android release ” stated Frank Magliochetti, CEO of ClickStream Corp.

Picking up a new language has never been easier or more fun! Simply choose a social learning app and start connecting with others interested in a language exchange experience.

What are NFTs and Where is this Heading?

NFT’s – Non-fungible tokens are popping up everywhere in the news these days, with high-profile companies, artists, and sports figures hopping on the newest marketplace bandwagon. Some NFTs are worth millions, and new ways to trade NFTs are popping up every day.

What exactly are NFTs?

In economics, a fungible is a good or commodity that is replaceable. Oil and gold are fungible commodities, in that someone can sell their gold or oil and purchase an exact replacement that has the identical value and properties of the oil or gold they just sold. A bitcoin is also fungible – trade one bitcoin for another, and you will have basically the same thing. A non-fungible, then, is a unique commodity that cannot be replaced with something else.

NFTs are cryptocurrency, a type of currency used to buy goods and services. Unlike paper money printed by governments, cryptocurrency is digital asset, so it is not something you can store in your wallet or pocket. Cryptocurrencies like NFTs work using blockchain, a public ledger system that creates an unchangeable digital record of transactions; the information is decentralized, stored across many computers.

NFTs are one-of-a-kind digital assets, such as drawings, music, video clips and jpegs, represented by a unique code recorded on the blockchain. NFTs can be bought and sold like a physical asset; the blockchain tracks the ownership of the NFT and the validity of the purchase. The buyer of the NFT gets a token that proves that they own the original work.

Even tweets can be bought and sold as NFTs; in March of 2021, the founder of Twitter sold his first tweet, published in 2006, for just under $3 million. A buyer purchased Nyan Cat, a 2011 an animated Gif of a flying pop-tart cat, for more than $500,000. Elon Musk’s musician girlfriend, who performs under the stage name Grimes, sold some of her digital artwork for more than $6 million.

Even major auction houses are getting in on the action. Christie’s recently held its first digital-only auction, which netted a cool $69 million for the artist who goes by the name of Beeple. As of mid-April 2021, Beeple is the highest selling NFT in history.

History of NFTs

Colored Coins are arguably the first NFTs, appearing in 2012 – 2013. Made of small denominations of a bitcoin, Colored Coins could represent property, coupons, shares of a company, subscriptions, access tokens, and digital collectibles. The system was flawed in that the coins could only represent an asset as long as everyone agreed on what the coins represented. If just one participant decided that they no longer equated a Colored Coin with a coupon, for example, the whole system collapsed. Colored Coins did open the door to putting real-world assets into blockchain ledgers, however, which laid the groundwork for NFTs.

Colored Coins also revealed the possibility of issuing assets onto blockchains. The big problem was that the then-current iteration of Bitcoin did not have the ability to issue assets – it was still just a digital money system, somewhat like internet cash. In 2014, big thinkers at Counterparty built a financial platform on top of Bitcoin; this platform allowed participants to create assets, such as a trading card game and meme trading. Counterparty even had a crypto token with the stock ticker symbol XCP.

Force of Will, a large mainstream company that had no prior experience with blockchain or cryptocurrency, launched their popular trading cards on Counterparty. This move brought NFTs out of the shadows and into the marketplace spotlight.

People began moving their memes to Counterparty. In 2016, people began to issue “rare pepes,” which are memes that feature a specific frog character. In addition to being on Bitcoin blockchain, the Rare Pepe Meme Directory certifies the rareness of the rare pepe meme.

Bitcoin now has a number of competitors offering blockchain, and many people now trade assets on those competing blockchains. People began issuing their rare pepes on one such competitor, known as Ethereum. In 2017, Ethereum introduced Peperium as a decentralized meme marketplace and trading card game (TCG). Their associated token, bearing the ticker symbol of RARE, could be used for meme creation and to pay listing fees.

Today’s NFT Marketplaces

New NFT marketplaces are popping up every day, and these marketplaces offer artists new ways to monetize their work. Even famed Super Bowl quarterback Tom Brady is launching an NFT, known as Autograph, in the fall of 2021. It will create digital collectibles featuring some of the biggest names in sports, fashion pop culture, and entertainment.

Nifter is a music NFT that, when launched, will allow users to create, sell, and find original music and even unique sounds. Artists can use the Nifter creation tool to mint a token for their music, and sell their NFTs on the Nifter marketplace at a fixed price or in an auction-style sale.

The first step in getting started with NFTs is to set up an Ethereum Wallet, which is a digital account that stores the cryptocurrency used to buy, sell, and trade NFTs. Next, purchase a small amount of Ethereum cryptocurrency to store in the wallet. Finally, connect the wallet to an NFT marketplace, such as Rarible, Zora, and SuperRare.

Will you make millions of dollars with NFTs? Maybe, maybe not – it depends largely on who you are (big names usually attract big money) and the digital goods you are trading. After all, the person who created an animated Gif of a flying pop-tart cat made half a million dollars. The only certainty is that NFTs are forever changing how we purchase digital art.

Benefits and Advantages of Learning a New Language with an App

Benefits and Advantages of Learning a New Language with an App

Software applications, or apps, have changed how people do just about everything. We used to call a cab and use paper maps to go somewhere, for example, and now we simply tap the Uber and Google Maps icons on our phones. Apps provide a new way to learn how to cook, dance, invest, socialize, and even play a musical instrument. Apps have changed how we learn new languages too. These apps are successful because they offer benefits and advantages over other approaches to learning.

Advantages of Apps over Traditional Methods of Learning New Languages

Apps have advantages over traditional education tools when it comes to learning a new language. Prior to the digital age, for example, people could only learn languages if they had access to language resources, educators, and courses in their town. Apps allow people to learn a new language anywhere they could get an internet connection.

Choose any language or course

Most brick-and-mortar schools and colleges teach Spanish, German, French, English, and Arabic, but fewer institutes of learning offer Polish, Dutch, Japanese, Vietnamese or Malay. Apps allow you to learn nearly any language spoken on the planet.

Learn at any time

Unlike in-person courses that have a set day and time for classes, apps allow you to learn a new language at any time of day or night. Sticking to a schedule can put you at risk for attending classes when you are tired or stressed out. Using an app lets you study when you have the time and energy for optimal learning.

Go at your own pace

Falling behind the rest of the class is stressful and embarrassing. Perhaps the worst part is that, once you fall behind your classmates, it is difficult to catch up. Getting ahead of the class is also frustrating as you wait for them to catch up. Using an app allows you to learn at your own pace.

Apps offer a variety of ways to learn

Everyone learns a new language in their own way; some people learn by memorizing vocabulary while others absorb more by playing games. Apps provide a wide variety of education techniques to suit almost every learning style.

You can start speaking your new language right away

Many traditional language courses start with history and grammar, whereas language apps typically try to get you speaking the language as soon as possible. Nearly three-fourths of Babbel users say they feel capable of maintaining a small conversation in their new language after just 5 hours instruction on the app.

You can track your progress

Apps can help you track your vocabulary, the amount of time you spend studying, and other information about your learning. Many digital language programs also offer rewards systems to keep you moving forward.

You can learn what is relevant to you

In a traditional classroom environment, everyone learns the same information, whether it interests them or not. This means students have to learn words and grammar rules they may never use – those who just want to learn how to order dinner during their Roman holiday has to learn as much Italian as someone who intends to move there. Apps allow individuals to learn as much or as little of a language as they desire.

Benefits of Using an App to Learn a New Language

Apps are customizable

Doing coursework on your own schedule allows you to study when you are in the mood. The customizable features of apps also let you learn your way, and at your own pace.

Apps are fun

Many apps make a game out of learning, which takes the drudgery out of picking up a new language. Apps feature images, sound and video that are colorful, cheerful, and fast moving, so time goes by quickly.

Access to online tutors

Everyone needs a little help now and then, especially when it comes to learning a language. iTalki, Rype, Tandem, Preply, Verbling, Live Lingua, and other apps offer online tutors that help you speak the language correctly.

Apps really work

Perhaps the greatest benefit is that apps really work. In a recent study, 85 undergraduates used an app to learn Spanish. Oral proficiency, vocabulary and grammar tests showed the students had learned enough to communicate in Spanish after just 12 weeks.

While using an app is not for everyone, it is a great way for many people to learn a new language without having to sit in a classroom. Whether you prefer iPhone, Android or a different device, you can use an app to start speaking a new language today.

Online Trivia Apps Have Benefits!

Benefits of Online Trivia Apps

Online trivia apps and brain games are a lot of fun, but they can also be good for your mental health. In fact, there are not many downsides to playing trivia games – they are fun to play, give your brain a workout, offer an opportunity to interact with others, and even prompt you to continue learning. Virtual trivia games are even better, in that you can play them at your convenience rather than wait for game night.

What’s so great about trivia and brain games?

It’s just human nature – people love the thrill of knowing obscure information and having the opportunity to prove it. It turns out that there is a physiological reason for this – winning stimulates production of the “happy hormones,” dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin, which make winning feel so good. Along with feelings of pleasure, dopamine is associated with learning, memory, and motor system function. Serotonin helps regulate mood, appetite, digestion, sleep, learning ability, and memory. Also known as “the love hormone,” oxytocin helps promote empathy, trust, and bonding in relationships.

Exercise for your noggin

Trivia also serve as a form of exercise for the brain. While the brain is not a muscle, it does get stronger with use and weaker from neglect like a muscle. Collecting, storing, and recalling information is like a trip to the gym for your noodle. In one study of older adults, those who learned quilting or digital photography had more memory improvement than did the participants who just socialized or engaged in activities that required less thinking. Billions of tiny nerve cells in the brain, known as neurons, have branches that connect the cells together to create a network. Communication between these neurons allows us to think and solve problems. Learning new things strengthens the brain by making the connections between brain cells stronger; exercising your brain can also make the tiny connections multiply, so the neurons can communicate even faster.

Social interaction

Perhaps the best part about trivia games is that they connect people to one another. Cleveland Clinic says that a strong social network can serve as sources of support; it can also reduce stress, help fight depression and enhance intellectual stimulation. Research from Harvard School of Public Health shows an active social life can delay memory loss in older adults. Trivia games create a great opportunity to get the social interaction you need.

What’s Better than Old-fashioned Trivia? Online Trivia!

Trivia apps take all the hassle out and put the fun back into brain games! Traditional trivia games involve proctors, participants, and game boards or paper. They also require scoring and record keeping that can slow down the fun and provide inaccurate results. Mobile apps, on the other hand, are fast, agile, and interesting, which keeps the game rolling.

The online platform allows users to enjoy trivia games without having to secure a live proctor or find other participants. Players can start a trivia game at any time of day or night, and can always find tough competitors to keep things interesting.

Keeping score on paper is tedious, and it can leave the door open for fuzzy interpretation of answers and inaccurate results. Online trivia software checks the results and displays the high scorers’ names. The program automatically checks for correct answers, catches missed questions, and maintains legacy score information, without the need for proctors or physical files. Online trivia allows for randomization, which keeps things interesting for players. Software often allows administrators to create question banks, and to randomize the questions and multiple-choice answers.

Social interaction without crowded rooms

Online trivia games create an opportunity for social interaction without all the inconveniences of socializing with others in person. Players can answer trivia questions from the comforts of their own home, at work, during their commute, or virtually anywhere. This has become particularly important during the pandemic, which has prevented large gatherings in indoor locations.

Creating virtual trivia is also good for nearly any organization, from schools to businesses to clubs. Putting quizzes online allows organizations to quiz large numbers of people all at once and give each participant the same experience, despite locations. The virtual platform also eliminates the costs of administering and scoring printed trivia games.

Online trivia apps are the newest generation in games and brain exercises. Whether it is a standing quiz night, a private event, a fundraiser, or just a great way to have fun while keeping your brain in shape, online trivia apps have it all.

Online & Smartphone Gaming

Online & Smartphone Gaming: Today and Tomorrow

Humans have been playing games since the dawn of civilization. Games have come a long way since the Ancient Egyptians played Senet – they’ve moved from wooden boards and tokens of yesteryear to the online platforms and smartphones of today.

Games remain incredibly popular, especially since the coronavirus pandemic sent people scrounging for home entertainment that wouldn’t cost them a fortune. To fill the void, many turned to online games using their smartphones. In fact, games now account for 43 percent of all smartphone use.

Statistica reported game sales skyrocketed 63 percent in just one week back in March of 2020, suggesting that people were turning to home entertainment to fill the void created by self-isolation during the pandemic. During that same month, Steam hit a peak of 23,434,674 concurrent players, smashing their record set a week prior by more than a million players and an enormous increase over the 20 million concurrent Steam players recorded at the beginning of March.

Mobile gaming accounted for more than 58 percent of the gaming market in 2019, and the global pandemic is fueling its growth. In fact, experts think the global mobile gaming market will likely reach $165.9 billion in 2020.

Players can choose from several different types of games, including action games, adventure games, card and casino games, puzzles, role-playing games (RPGs), first-person shooter games, sports and strategy games. Trivia games are especially hot these days.

Launched by ClickStream on September 30, 2020, WinQuik is the latest and greatest entry into the online trivia market. This innovative real-time gaming platform pays users money and prizes. WinQuik pops out up to five multi-player quiz games ever day, featuring well-known hosts, including boxer/actor Pooch Hall, Emmy award-winning journalist/ documentary filmmaker/tech executive Amber Theoharis, chef/TV personality Jordan Andino, and NFL quarterback/aerospace engineer/NASA intern Joshua Dobbs.

WinQuik platform offers a wide variety of new and fascinating topics to keep the games interesting. Quiz categories include survival, crime, history, the human body, cars, food, gaming, geography and more.

Using famous hosts isn’t the only thing that sets WinQuik apart from other gaming apps – it also targets a completely different audience. Unlike apps that hope to attract fantasy players or sports betters over the long haul, ClickStream caters to those casual users who prefer spending just a few seconds to interact with a gaming platform in order to win prizes and real money. Users can get involved in as little as 20 seconds and receive their game results via push notifications.

WinQuik is also free, at least for now. ClickStream will monetize the app with corporate sponsors and advertisers.

Future of Online and Smartphone Gaming

Until quite recently, substandard graphics and slow speeds were the hallmarks of online and mobile games, particularly in comparison to games for PCs and consoles. Because of improvements and advances in technology that provide better support for graphics, though, many notable titles are making the leap from PCs and consoles to mobile platforms. League of Legends: Wild Rift and Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall went mobile in 2020, and many other titles are set to follow. The seismic shift from PCs and consoles will likely shake up the mobile gaming market to create an entirely new experience over the next decade.

A number of factors will shape online and smartphone gaming in the near and far future.

Better graphics

Graphics are significantly more immersive and sophisticated than they were in the days of Pong and Leisure Suit Larry – today’s graphics are smooth and realistic.

Advanced VR And AR Tech

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technology will play an increasingly important role in video gaming in the future, especially as the price of virtual headsets drops and their quality rises. A number of online platforms are adopting VR and AR technologies to make their games more exciting, realistic, and immersive.

5G

Slow internet speeds have been the bane of gaming since the dawn of the internet. 5G will change all that with blistering fast speeds and reduced network congestion. Download speeds of 5G will be around 10 times faster than 4G speeds, which will increase download times and accessibility.

Cloud Based Gaming

In the past, users had to store games entirely on their PCs or laptops. Hardware storage demands a significant amount of memory, of course, and this limited the potential power of the game. Local storage also limited where the users could enjoy their favorite games. Cloud-based technology changed all that – users can now play anywhere they can use their phone, and because games are now stored on expansive cloud-based servers, they are no longer limited by the size of their home computer.

It’s hard to say where we’ll be in a few years, when the pandemic is over and technology will have advanced even more, but one thing is certain – we’ll still be playing games.
