Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning!

Only 5 minutes a day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes!
The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.

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

Effortless practice:
We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but in this case you don’t waste your time playing instead you build a valuable asset: knowledge of a new language.

Swipe based:
We believe in quick pace and keyboard typing 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 1700+ 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.

Forge learning habit:
Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it!

NEW: Augmented Reality (AR) - practice!
(AR mode is available on all iOS 11 devices that are powered by Apple’s A9 or A10 chip: iPhone 6S or newer / iPad Pro / 2017 iPad)

I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :)

p.s.: We take full responsibility for the potential addiction to learning.


Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!

Very pleased

I’m a Korean culture enthusiast and I’ve always thought the best way to understand a people is to first speak their language. There aren’t any Korean teachers where I live so, naturally, I took to language-learning apps. One of my favourite things about Drops is that you can easily track your progress and the app makes sure to give you enough practice with a specific word. It’s not a perfect app and I did have to do my own research elsewhere about letter and sentence structuring, but if you’re serious about learning the language, I would definitely recommend this app for it’s the only one that is yet to disappoint me. In regards to the new update though, I would like to ask the producers of the application to re-evaluate how they expect us to draw certain characters. I feel as though there is no one starting or ending point for each and every letter, especially in Korean where a letter is literally a square (ㅁ). I suggest that we be allowed to start and stop at whichever point on the letter, provided we know how to write, yes? Apart from that, an overall 10/10 app.

I just started

The app told me to review for ten more minutes BUT so far it seems really great. I am comprehending the words very well and picking them up really fast. The visual representation helps a lot and constantly hearing it throughout the session. I’m Korean and I’m visiting Korea soon. I was adopted from there when I was about 5 months old. I don’t know the language, but I’m hoping this app will help me out a little bit before I go. Just to be able to recognize stuff. So far, my first five minutes have been a good introduction and I’m quite excited to keep going. I really like how you can choose the words you wish to learn and those you don’t. The pronunciation so far sounds pretty accurate as well, so I’m really looking forward to this app. Also the fact that you can choose the topic is really nice. Since I’m going there soon, I won’t have enough time to really get a grasp on the language, but at least I’ll be able to narrow down what I am learning so I can be slightly less confused while I’m there.

FINALLY everything I’ve been looking for but I have one complaint.

I’ve been trying to study Korean and nothing would do it for me. I tried every site and every app. I saw this game and I got it. I was instantly blown away by how easy and fun this was. I actually enjoyed this a lot. It was fun and easy! In a matter of minutes I basically mastered about 20 new words! The developers really made this geniuses and how great and fun it was! The only complaint I have is just the time! It only gives you 5 minutes to play the. Wait 10 hours. I get that this game would be too good to be true if it was all infinite and free but I think we should be able to have 10-15 minutes of time. Most learners usually have daily schedules of at least 10-15 minutes but 5 minutes is a little low. I also think that you should lower the prices down a bit to 2.99 a month because it’s just very expensive and a lot of people don’t want to pay that much. This is finally the app I’ve been looking for and I’m getting so much out of this app and of how fun and easy it is. The different activities never ceases to keep me engaged in my learning. Thank you for reading this!
