Learn another language on-the-go! These are the 5 best Language apps out there…
1- Linqapp (Number of available languages: 11)
One of the major problems with programmed language apps is their inability to understand human emotion, tone and metaphors. What makes this app so effective is it connects users to native speakers. At the moment answers arrive in a couple of minutes but in the near future, the company hope the app to be as quick as Google Translate but with a human element.
2- Duolingo (Number of available languages: 20)
Duolingo gamifies the learning of languages, providing an interactive and engaging experience for learners. The games vary from filling in the blanks to verbal tests where learners have to speak into the phone. The second great aspect is a learner can’t move onto the next level until they are fully confident at the skill being tested!
3- Babbel (Number of available languages: 14)
Babbel starts with a crash course survival guide on the key phrases needed to survive in a foreign country. The app then logically moves on to explain why what you says makes sense and the grammatical theory is unveiled. Great app for those that like a “no steps” missed approach!
4- Memrise (Number of available languages: 200+)
This app uses scientific underpinnings to help get users to memorise language content. It does this by connecting words with concepts that already have attached meaning to the user. This app is particular useful for visual learners!
5- Busuu (Number of available languages: 12)
Busuu starts with flash cards and basic quizzes to engage the reader. As the reader progresses the steps become more advanced and the learner engages in translations and writing exercises. The learners can send their work off to be checked by experts and each participant feels as if they have their own personal tutor.
These apps offer a fun, interactive and efficient way to complement your current learning style. They all certainly get a big thumbs up from the team at Global Voices.
