Anyone who has done a little traveling will know how important it is to have some local language skills. It can be a lifesaver even if you just want to know where the nearest toilet is! Now, with a brand new, free app called Phrasi you can have all the language skills you need at the touch of your screen.
With Phrasi, you never need to be lost for words again. There are over 500 essential phrases and words all available with audio recorded by native speakers to help you fully grasp the language – and if that wasn’t enough the words are spelt phonetically for you as well.
Key features include:
• Works offline so you can use it wherever you are.
• Practice function allows you to test your skills against the proper enunciation.
• Great design with original 'street wall art' illustrations for each phrase.
• Flash card function to help you test and refresh yourself.
• Audio recorded by native speakers
• Search, favorites, slow play and more
If you need to find a phrase quickly, then Phrasi will help you find it with either the quick search function or through grouped categories such as money, shopping, dating, health and many more. It’s always difficult to learn a new language, but with the user friendly app you can grasp the basics in no time to make your journey even more immersive than ever.
Phrasi also comes with a favourites function so that any phrase or word you need more than others will be easy to find, while slow play allows you to hear the phrase slowly and clearly until you feel more confident. Now you can leave behind the old translation books and lighten your bag knowing that you have all the language skills you need when abroad.
With phrases and words represented in the native script and in phonetics you get a complete and well rounded package – with the added bonus of hearing the phrase out loud to aid you. Phrasi is not only a fantastic, vibrant app; it’s a travelling essential which can be easily used by anyone!

Good and bad
The app is a curious mixture of the awful and the fairly good.
What is good? Is has a good number of necessary phrases. The pronunciation is a little on the mechanical side, but is adequate, on the whole.
I liked the interface. It was easy to find my way around and to review the phrases.
What was awful? Too often, the spoken phrase did not correspond with the Korean. In some cases it was just another way of saying the same thing. In other cases, it was different phrase altogether.
Korean has two numbering systems. Learning Korean requires that you learn when to use which system. This app only gives one alternative for each number. Sometimes the number is from one system; sometimes from the other. Often, the spoken phrase is different from what is written.
I know enough Korean to sort out the problems, but I find it frustrating, nonetheless. For a new learner, it has to be mystifying.
Potentially, this is a good application. It does need to be corrected, though.
