Favorite language learning apps?
« on: September 02, 2017, 11:13:59 pm »
(I didn't know where else to put this, I hope it's alright that it's in General Chatter ^^)

For those of you who are trying to learn a new language, or have already learned one, what are some of the language learning apps you recommend?


Personally, I love Tinycards. It's not strictly for learning languages, but I'm currently trying to learn Japanese, and I find this app super helpful for memorizing Hiragana.

Also, I've been using a little bit of Duolingo and Memrise, they're both pretty good. However, I haven't actually used either of them a lot yet, since I'm trying to learn all Hiragana [and probably Katakana] first before I begin learning any vocabulary, grammar, etc.

Do PC/Macintosh applications count? And video-based language learning programmes?

Gaelic - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3joiGdB_VQ_5uTrBZ1w7WABfqUFAKw_T
German - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3936178A38BB5F87

It's a bad idea to invest time in these if you aren't going to finish them (and that's not a quick easy project), but they both teach you by dropping you in society. I've only seen a portion of both(more of the Gaelic one), but I do recommend them.

I really enjoy the games on GoVocab, I don't know how many languages are on it but I know there's Japanese, also if you want a desktop translator for Japanese, download Takoboto.

Also I suggest learning the hiragana as you learn some sentence structures, the repition really helps.
