Learning a language is tough—especially if you don’t have a consistent, immersive, and conversational environment to learn in. Hallo connects English-learners with native speakers to provide a natural, tailored learning experience that is fun for native speakers and invaluable for learners. Users can learn English basics for free, while teachers can help more advanced students via paid lessons, making extra cash while they teach lifelong language skills to engaged users.
Tamarak invested in Hallo in 2019 after learning of the founder Joon Beh’s own experience learning English and seeing how he translated his experience and insights into a very engaging app—amassing hundreds of thousands of users in their first summer. Their growing team is tech-savvy, culturally insightful, and off to a great start as they empower people throughout the world to reach their language-learning goals.
