We like to learn on a daily basis, as humans. We are curious, it is in our nature. It is a good thing that the internet exists and that it gives us an opportunity to learn new things on a daily basis. Learning anything from coding to a new language can be done through the help of an application.
Language applications, in particular, have become more popular, making our desires to learn easier. There are even a plethora of free applications. Following are some of them, with recommendations for more premium options.
Everybody knows of this free application, and the Duolingo owl which keeps cheering you on when you are on a good streak. You can learn over 20 languages in a very fun and interactive way. Whether lessons which have to do with specific parts of grammar, or stories to help you practice what you have learned so far, the application is interactive and will be entertaining to both adults and children. The plus version gets rid of the ads on the mobile devices, but other than that, you just get some features which help you if you make mistakes frequently. The free version is as great as free applications can be.
Babbel is a great language application, particularly if you enjoy a structured approach to things. It follows a pretty neat plan which helps any language learner, particularly new ones, and not just new to the language, but new to language learning in general. People who know a couple of languages will always notice patterns which are better in learning another one.
Anyway, Babbel is interactive, offers translations and plenty of vocabulary which you will need in regular conversations. Regular conversations make most of a language learner’s focus at least at first. Premium features cost 13 dollars per month or 84 annually.
Memrise or memorize? It depends on whether you mean the app or the actual verb or the pun, in this case. Memrise does plenty of things right and one of the more important ones is the use of videos to help you understand how native speakers pronounce a word or sentence. Seeing somebody move their mouth can help us get there faster, eliminating parts of our own accent. This feature, alongside all the other interactive features, helps a learner get the pronunciation right, and not just learn the vocabulary by heart.
Some learners are much more visual than they are aural. Yes, working on the auditory parts of learning a language is important but you can learn faster by using visuals, then by all means, you should do so. There are over 35 languages here, so choose one you like and get to learning. The colors are wonderful so new learners will have a lovely time.
This is one of the best apps if you want to learn more types of conjugations at once. The app displays common phrases and the speakers are pretty fun to listen to. They do not have a droning voice, which makes everything easier to memorize.
Try these language apps if you want to learn new words, sentences or an entire language. These are great for free and most of them are even better if you get the premium version. Remember to have fun while learning.
