Many people learn foreign languages by taking classes or online sessions. But have you considered using apps? Apps have been developed for our convenience, and it is not surprising that there are hundreds of them just to help language learners.
If you are learning a language, you should consider downloading any one of the following addictive language learning apps!
Unlike most of the other apps, Rosetta Stone aims at teaching the learners with spoon feeding. The app believes that the best way to learn any language is by talking in it only instead of connecting it with your native language. The app would provide the user with a picture of something, let’s say, a table, with its name in the target language.
This way, the learner has to make the connections and learn instead of getting everything on a plate. If you are learning Spanish, you will not see your first language in the app and only Spanish. You can also speak words in Spanish so the app can tell you about your pronunciation. This is helpful because you can learn the Spanish alphabet pronunciation the right way.
‘50 Languages’ is a great vocabulary builder. If you learn best with the help of text, then this app is built for you. There are vocabulary games and geography quizzes for you to review your progress. There are 100 free lessons in the app which prepare you to communicate in various situations.
From Hello to Goodbye, you will learn how to carry out a conversation and how to reply to certain expressions. This app is also an excellent travel companion to help you with conversations whether you are at your office or at the airport.
This app focuses on vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and culture. You get to listen to dialogues recorded by the native speakers. You don’t just listen to it, but you also follow along with the help of written text and its corresponding translation. Repeat the lines and dialogue as many times as you want. You can record yourself speaking words or phrases in the target language and then compare them to the ones spoken by the native speaker.
All Language Translator
If you have trouble forgetting the translation of various words in your first language, All Language Translator is here to help you! Type in any word, phrase, or even a sentence, and the app will provide you with the translation.
In Beelinguapp, you will hear a native speaker reading a passage/story to you, and you will see the two languages side by side. In addition to an audio recording, you will see bilingual texts. If you want to hear some sentence, click on it to highlight it, and when you click on it again, you will hear the sentence read.
These apps are incredibly helpful and addictive, so you can download them today and start learning any language of your choice! Good Luck!
