If you want to learn another language we know it can be overwhelming at first. But, here are 7 apps that can help make learning another language easy and fun!
Duolingo is one of the best apps on the market to help you learn another language. You can choose from a variety of languages including Spanish, French, German, Navajo, Latin, High Valyrian, and Hawaiian.
Duolingo breaks learning a language down into categories. The first and only thing unlocked on the learn screen when you choose your language is the introduction section. That way you can build a solid foundation before you go on to learn phrases and verb conjugations.
There are even checkpoints so you can check your learning to unlock more sections. Duolingo is free and gives you the opportunity to upgrade but you don’t gain anything more by doing that just getting rid of ads. If you want to learn another language you should definitely try this app.
Duolingo also has a website that syncs with the app so you can study anywhere and any way you like. Duolingo also switches between having you listen and type what you hear, repeat the phrase on the screen, type out the translation, and choose the correct word order. This way you are getting a good, all-around learning experience.
Another app to check out if you want to learn another language is Mondly. It is a free app, but if you want to learn more than one language you have to upgrade.
