No lock screen function, copy-to-translate, and quick translation due to iOS database limitations. We are working on the speech translation. Also, quick search in translation and voice translation will happen in the future.

Currently, iOS cannot favourite words.

I have a problem with using the copy-to-translate function on Android. What’s wrong?

  1. Did you force close our app by using a third party app? For example, “Allow backend operation on Android” interferes with U-Dictionary’s interface.
  2. Have you disabled “copy to translate” function? Check your settings to make sure it’s enabled.
  3. If the problem persists, then it’s because of another app per se is banning this feature.

There’s no definition on my lock screen!

If no definition is showing up on your lock screen, try the following:

1. Click your screen

2. Check your network

3. Have you downloaded the offline package? If you don’t have the offline package, you must download it to see the definition when you don’t have good network service.

There’s no definition/the definition is wrong when I look up a definition!

If no definition is showing or if the definition is inaccurate, try the following:

  1. Check your network
  2. Have you downloaded the offline package? If you don’t have the offline package, you must download it to see the definition when you don’t have good network service.
  3. If the problem persists, email us your language, phone version number, equipment, and other details. Be as specific as possible with your issue. 

I was using the APP and it suddenly crashed. Why?

Check your storage. For U-Dictionary to run properly, your phone has to have sufficient space. Try optimizing your phone. Another solution is to update to the latest version.

I noticed some definitions are inaccurate. Why?

We strive to provide accurate definitions to our users, so we are doing everything we can to ensure accuracy. If there are serious mistakes, please email us with a screenshot and tell us your language and we will ensure you get an answer to your problem.

Why is there no translation between different languages?

Our development team is making translations between languages coming in the near future. We are planning for the next quarter.

Why does U-Dictionary have so many ads?

Unfortunately, for U-Dictionary to be free, there have to be ads or there will be no income source to help us continue to optimize definitions and provide quality content for you. We hope you can understand our situation.

How many users does U-Dictionary have?

We have more than 20+ million users.

10 ways to speak better English without taking classes! Part 1:

2222

Hello busy people,

Good evening, welcome back to another interesting article!

If you’re reading this, I imagine you want to speak better English and communicate in a more confident and competent way.

By speaking better English, people all over the world can hear our voice. But, to speak better English, you need a teacher, don’t you? You need to take English classes, right?

Well, English teachers and English classes definitely help. But, studying English for a few hours a week may not improve your spoken English very much.

What you need is to become a self-directed learner, somebody who takes responsibility for their own learning and creates their own learning program to develop their English.

Here are 5 ways to speak better English, without going to classes.

  1. Record yourself speaking English: Listening to yourself can be strange at first but you get used to it.
  2. Read aloud, especially dialogue: Reading aloud is not the same as speaking naturally. Practice for 5 or 10 minutes a day
  3. Sing along to English songs while you’re driving or in the shower: The lyrics to pop songs are often conversational so you can learn lots of common expressions by listening to them.
  4. Watch short video clips and pause and repeat what you hear: YouTube is an amazing resource for language learners and you probably already have your favorite clips.
  5. Learn vowel and consonant sounds in English: The Phonemic chart is a list of the different vowel and consonant sounds in English.
