Best language learning app
This app is the best ive found for learning a language. It doesn’t just teach you sorts to memorize. It teaches you grammar and also how to use the words you’ve learned in context. For example it taught me verb conjugations in Spanish for regular -ar-er and -ir verbs. You can also get certificates right in the app. Most features are free too and the premium subscription is 7.99/mo I think. They will even give you a one week free trial of premium. But as I said most of the features are free to use. This app is not translation based and doesn’t use spaced repetition. It’s structured like a course you might take in school. Oh and they have these excersises where you write something or record yourself in your target language and it gets corrected by native speakers. And if they’re learning your native language, you can help them by correcting they’re work. I could rave about this app all day. Just try it. Oh did I mention that it helps you review. But it’s not pushy about it. You can also take a placement test to find your level, so if you already know some things in your target language you can skip the words you already know and learn new things immediately. It’s completely different to Duolingo Memrise, drops etc. you won’t get how cool this app is until you’ve tried it. I have literally no complaints. Please devs keep everything the same forever. I tried to think of something the app could improve on, but failed. Please try this app.
I have recommended this app to some of my English students because it's a great way to improve your English. I'm studying French and I love the translated dialogues they have on the ends of many of the units. They use native, non-robotic speakers and speak at a natural pace so you can hear the linking of words. I also enjoy the visuals and how they contextualize all of their wonderful flashcards with sentence examples of the words. I have a few suggestions for improvement. First, they often will throw 3 to 5 complicated rules at you and then have you practice them all at once as if you should have digested all of that info at once. I think they should introduce one rule then have you practice that one and build on that. Also, often there is no audio or translation in many of the activities and I believe that's a big loss to the student. That's one place where duolingo wins out because they are good about that. Also, I'd love more review, so past rules and lessons are woven into the new ones. Also, not a fan of the high pitched ding sound that you can't turn off. Overall very impressed and excited to keep using it. Update: Buusu is my favorite language learning app by far and far surpasses duolingo because more practical language is taught and grammar isn’t ignored. I’m studying Spanish on it now and wish I had a non-Castilian option because I’m looking to communicate with Mexicans and Latin-Americans who don’t use vosotros or that th sound for the s.
Surprisingly helpful and efficient!
I love how easy it is to use, and how amazing the community is. The lessons are designed very well and the app is extremely easy to use. Just pick a language you want to learn and let the app guide you the whole way through. It’s pretty straight forward and eventually you will be familiar and hopefully fluent in whatever chosen language. I strongly suggest you try out the community feature where you can find people to help you, correct your mistakes, ask for feedback, and even socialize. It’s incredibly easy to find people and make friends. I’ve been using this app for a few days to learn French and I have already learned about 60 words. The ONLY con I can think of is that during lessons you are required to listen to a voice saying words and phrases. This could potentially be a problem because sometimes it can be hard to hear what word or phrase they are saying, especially when they talk too fast. Other than that, everything works like a charm. I don’t ever write reviews but I thought I should praise a high quality app that actually helped me accomplish something. Honestly, it is quite fun learning a new language even if you aren’t serious in becoming fluent, and that’s where this app really shines... it makes it FUN and NOT boring to learn. Anyways, I love this app and I think it’s a great tool to pass the time and learn a new language fairly easily.
