Learning a new language has never been easier. In fact, you can even do it on the go with apps! These seven apps are fun and effective ways to learn a new language from your phone or tablet.

Babbel

Babbel is a popular language-learning app with endless courses on offer for both children and adults. It offers courses in German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Danish and Swedish. Babbel is available on iOS and Android devices. The app has a clean and straightforward interface, with a course list where you can select your desired language. You can choose from courses such as “Beginner” or “Advanced.” The first few lessons are free, but after that, you need to pay for the full version.

Rosetta Stone

If you’re looking to get into your lessons, Rosetta Stone is the app for you. It’s a comprehensive language learning program with an extensive library of languages and various learning methods. Make the most of the lessons and exercises by scheduling classes with tutors. This gives you a chance to put into practice what you have been learning and ask any questions. The user interface is well-reviewed by users, and overall, it’s seen as very effective in teaching people how to read, write, speak, and understand new languages.

Duolingo

You have most likely heard of or seen the green owl of Duolingo. This app is excellent for beginners and can be used on the go. It has a lot of languages available, including fantasy languages like Klingon(!), so you’re more than likely to find one that suits you. There are a series of modules for each language with different vocabulary, reading and listening exercises, and it even lets you practise pronunciation with its voice recognition feature. You can connect with other users in its community section, helping to give you some motivation when learning!

Memrise

Memrise is a free language learning app. It uses flashcards, spaced repetition, and mnemonics to help you learn. Memrise has courses in over 100 languages, including Spanish (both Castilian and Latin American), French, German, Italian and many more. There are also courses for English speakers on different topics such as travel or business.

Speakly

Speakly is a language-learning app that helps you learn a new language by translating your voice into the language you are learning. It uses artificial intelligence to help you learn, and this technology can be used in many ways. For example, it can translate what you want to say into another language so that people will understand you, but it can also be used as a teaching tool to give instructions or tutorials in another language.

TripLingo

If you’re going to learn a new language while travelling, TripLingo is the app for you. It uses your phone’s GPS to determine where you are and then teaches you the local words and phrases needed to communicate with people in that area. For example, if you’re visiting France, you can use this app to learn how to ask, “Where is the bathroom?” or “How much does this cost?”. This app is perfect for travellers on vacation who want to ensure they take advantage of all opportunities for interacting with locals.

HiNative

HiNative is a free app that allows you to learn a language by talking to real people. You can chat with native speakers, get corrections on your grammar, and practise new words. This app also helps you practise your own language skills. It’s like having the world’s most helpful tutor at your fingertips!

The best thing about this app is that it lets you find native speakers willing to help you improve your speaking skills for whatever language you’re learning! If no one is available in the language you want to learn, you can also help others learn by offering help and conversation in your mother tongue.

Conclusion

These are just a few apps that can help you learn a new language. However, it’s important to remember that practising and repetition is the best way to learn a new language. So don’t forget about your textbooks! They may not be app-based, but they can still be great for helping you master specific grammar points or vocabulary lists. Similarly, immersing yourself in the language by talking to locals is an excellent way to get more language practice. 

In the meantime, these seven apps might just do the trick in helping make learning fun (or at least more convenient).
