Ratings and Reviews
Excellent for intermediate and advanced learners
Are you looking to advance past the upper beginner level of expertise on Duolingo? There’s an option to chose up to 50,000 words on Clozemaster. 50,000!! This is the perfect app to pick up where you left off from in Duolingo and become more fluent. You learn words in context of sentences. Everything you need is free. There are no useless time limitations, annoying ads, or pressure to upgrade. I can’t believe I didn’t find this sooner. My only minor gripe is that I wish the voice quality was a little better, it sound slightly robotic. But it’s better than most apps and I can understand it just fine. It’s so hard to find an app that can teach to such an advanced level. Most other vocabulary apps stop around 3,000 words (while charging an arm and a leg for a monthly subscription at that). This may not be as well polished aesthetically as the language Drops app, which is often touted as the best vocabulary app. But Clozemaster is leagues ahead in terms of volume of words (50,000?!?!). Plus it has the ability to teach sentence building. You can truly become fluent using this alone. I don’t mind the retro Atari looking graphics of this app. I find it cute actually. But something tells me that’s what is stopping more people from trying it, since people are used to the more polished looks of apps like Drops and Duolingo. I wish more people knew about Clozemaster.
I don’t know how I initially came across Clozemaster, but I’m so glad I did. It is just a random assortment of fill in the blank sentences in a ton of languages (one at a time;), but that’s kind of what you need for language practice once you’ve passed the absolute beginner stage of a language. As other users have said, this isn’t for total beginners. Spanish/Italian/French/German are easy enough to figure out on Clozemaster with limited foundation. Russian, Welsh and Chinese definitely require some outside learning. I never like to say one language app is better than another, because they each do their own thing. Memrise rocks for vocab, Duolingo for sentence forming, Clozemaster for reading comprehension that pushes you to think of the correct missing word. Clozemaster certainly pushes you past the A1 level in comprehension that a lot of apps might stop at, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use other apps in tandem! Thanks for a great app! Please keep pro affordable as you reach out to more and more consumers.
The Best Resource for Vocabulary
I’ve tried many resources in my life as an aspiring polyglot. I speak 4 languages and I wish Clozemaster existed when I first started learning.
It’s *Amazing*. Truly, you won’t find anything that throws you right into the context of a language in a more gentle way. Since you need the “cloze” word to fully understand the sentence, your brain prioritizes the absorption of the words taught, in contrast to flash card methods of learning.
Now that I have Clozemaster, I’ll never struggle with vocabulary again. And it’s fun!
As a side note: realize that Clozemaster probably isn’t best for absolute day one beginners in a language. And it should be used as a complement to other resources for language learning. You want a balance.
I’d recommend learning the first 100 Most Common Words on the app before even clicking the Fluency Fast Track.
Last thing: I’m a pro user (regular is free) and it’s totally worth it. Currently I’m living in Sweden and learning Swedish and the unlimited listening practice (Cloze Listening) is making this a piece of cake. In one week I’ve gone from barely understanding anything, to being able to listen to radio and podcasts with pleasure!
