Only 5 minutes a day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but it works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming, but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the obstacles standing in your way of finally starting to learn that new language are made obsolete.. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes! The time limit encourages intense focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.

100% visual learning:
Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the gorgeous pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently. You won’t have use the word of your native language, but instead, connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Faster, better and more fun! :)

We believe in fast-paced, intuitive learning, and typing on your phone’s keyboard is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes. ;)

Strategic vocabulary selection:
The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 2600+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken.

Drops is all about wordplay. It gamifies the process of learning a language; choose your discipline from a dropdown of more than 30 languages, pick a mission – enthusiast, traveller, business student or romantic – and let the games begin. You can switch your mission any time.

Great for learning!

The free version is very useful and it gives you 5 minutes of great practice each day. I have the yearly subscription which gives you more languages, more topics, customized learning times, and more learning games. I’d suggest using this app and starting with the free version to see if you like the basic format and how much you use it. I like the premium for more intense learning (increased times, repeating sessions more than once a day, and more topics). I got mine during a sale period and they seem to offer sales a lot so I would say it is worth it if you are serious about learning one or more languages.

I used to use Duolingo and liked that but it wasn’t helpful for learning Korean. Drops is so much more practical and I like the games. I am learning how to write and read in Korean but it uses adaptive learning so that you get the romanization first and they ease new words into hangeul. I love that this app teaches you useful phrases too! The only thing I don’t like is the writing game for the letters. Drawing it out on the screen isn’t very accurate, it can be frustrating, and it’s not the same as writing with a pen. However, it’s not a big deal because you can just skip that topic and jump to whatever topic you want to do.

I had an issue with my premium service not being recognized each time I opened the app and so I would have to restore the purchase each time but I contacted support and they fixed it within a day!

Give it a try!

I was looking for a constructive distraction during the pandemic, so figured learning a new language might do the trick. Read a few reviews on different language apps and picked a month plan on Drops. I figured if I lost interest quickly, I wouldn’t be out much. I stayed with it, and renewed with another basic plan for a year. Then after that year, I said why not, and got subscribed to a lifetime premium plan.

All was going well, until recently, when my app somehow reverted back to a basic plan, which had continual pop up ads prompting me to upgrade (back) to a premium plan, and also limiting session length to only 5 minutes. Not sure what happened, but contacted Drops support, and they worked with me to get the app restored to what I had purchased last fall. It did take a few days to get this resolved, but ultimately the issue was taken care of satisfactorily.

The actual sessions are fun and can keep you engaged to keep learning. I spent about a year learning Hindi, and now have been learning Greek since then. Unfortunately I don’t have anyone to practice my learned words with, so that would be helpful to really lock in the words you’ve learned. But that is no fault of the app. The bottom line is it’s kept me engaged since I’ve started. My streak is currently at 613 days which probably is the only time in my life I’ve started something and stayed with it! Give it a try!
