Drops makes language learning an effortless fun. Practical vocabulary is bound to your memories through beautiful graphics and quick mini-games.
The crazy part? You have only 5 mins per day to learn Korean. Might sound insane but works like charm! :)
These are the ingredients of the secret sauce:
100% illustrated: Pictures directly carry the meaning - you don’t have to use your native language at all! No intermediary. Faster, more effective and of course more fun for Korean learning process! :)
5 min sessions: limiting practice time sounds crazy but it it makes it incredibly addictive - which is cool thing for learning. The barrier of entry is close to zero so you can’t have any excuses: you’ll have 5 minutes even on the busiest day!
Effortless play: We know why games are fun and addictive and distilled the essence into Drops. The result is a truly immersive experience but it’s not waste of your time while you play because you build a valuable knowledge.
Quick: Keyboard typing is painfully slow. Welcome rapid swipes and taps! Especially for Korean vowels, and consonants.Trust us, you’ll need those extra seconds during the quick learning session ;)
Vocabulary only: Zero grammar, just handpicked practical words. That’s our focus and we do it extremely well. The app teaches the Korean “alphabet” Hangul (hangoul) too!
Forge a habit: Drops wants to make you language learning addict. Effectiveness is nothing without a well established habit. We help you build one!
We are extremely proud of our lovely word pronunciations by seasoned voice talents!

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I've been using this app for about a month now and I love it! I feel like I've already learned a ton of vocabulary, but there're still plenty of sections left to go through! The app keeps things interesting with different ways of learning/reinforcing both the written and vocal versions of the words it's taught, and that's been working well for me. Plus, you can always go back to any sections you complete if you want more practice. I will say, the app hasn't explicitly explained any of the language's grammar to me, but I feel like I've been able to start picking some of it up through context clues.
I don't get the impression that I'll be able to use this app to learn the language fluidly without any other aids, but it's still an amazing amount of free content that's a great as a building block, and great for daily practice! I also don't know if the upgraded versions are more helpful for going further with learning, but I'm still very happy with the free version! I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to start out!
If anything changes, I might do an updated review later down the line!

Hi, Thanks for learning with Drops and sending us such a nice, detailed feedback! We do understand the need for grammar and sentence construction, but we built the app to encourage users to learn a wide variety of words in a foreign language. Drops is a great complementary tool, as it provides a building block for users to enhance their vocabulary. We're happy to hear you would recommend Drops! :)
Wow. This app is amazing
Wow. This is awesome I just had first tried it days ago and I got to say it’s good. It will not let you forget words like I always had for mushroom in Japanese but it had keep had reminded me over and over. But only 2 problems with this app. 1. You need to more words like 6,000 but why 1,700. That’s is not enough. The only reason why I have said that because this app will be helpful remembering because remembering was very difficult for me but I am on my 1st level here. I would like this app to have more words built in to it. 6000 will be enough and learn kanji too.
My next question here. Will the app will be shut down, selling it, takes if down of the store for any reason or if Drops has a website too will it ever go down too? I’m worried. When I had see something I really like then I get worried like what if it goes down.
That’s my review. Yep. But please add more words like 6000 and learn kanji

Japanese needs work
If you’re coming into this app looking to learn Japanese for the first time, I can tell you there are some serious problems with the way they’re presenting the info. For one thing, the foreign words are written in hiragana when they should be written in katakana (e.g. “salad” should be written as サラダ but they’ve written it as さらだ which is not correct). Changing the writing style to “Kana & Kanji” didn’t seem to correct this. Why teach katakana if you’re not going to use it for the words in the rest of the app? A bigger problem is that they don’t include the accented versions of the characters when you’re learning the alphabet. For example, you learn that は means “ha” but you’ll never learn that ば and ぱ mean “ba” and “pa” and these accented characters are a SIGNIFICANT part of the language, which you’ll plainly see if you look at the rest of the vocabulary in the app. It doesn’t make any sense that they’d completely omit them up front and expect you to know them later on. The presentation is slick and fun to use so they deserve a lot of credit for that but for they price you’re paying you’d expect something a lot more complete.
