Review: PCmag

Online language-learning app busuu sits somewhere between a complementary study app that you would use in tandem with a full classroom course, and an online program for self-study. It isn’t as rigorous or intense as Rosetta Stone, but it has more core learning content than apps meant primarily for studying, such as Memrise, TinyCards, or Quizlet. As of now, busuu has a modest collection of languages, but the material contained therein is of very high quality. The app is polished and professional. Busuu is among the better free language learning apps, although its Premium subscription adds a lot and is worth the cost.

Review: PCmag

Duolingo was the first free language-learning app to rival expensive paid programs. It offers plenty of self-paced exercises to help you develop a base understanding of dozens of languages or review one you already know. It’s easily the best free language app you can find, and our Editors’ Choice. Even when measured against paid programs, the content is so good that Duolingo still ranks among the best software for learning a language.

Review: Play Store

So far, this is a wonderful app! I do wish, though, that it had the option of a deeper or lower-pitched voice with more careful pronunciation (at least for French) as it might be easier to understand. Otherwise, this is a great service to those of us struggling to learn another language on our own.

7. Learn English Phrases

Learn English Phrases

The “learn English” app has many useful English phrases and words (“thank you!”, “how much?” or “a table for two, please!”). When you tap a phrase, the app speaks it aloud. There is no guessing as to how to pronounce the words. And if the app is talking too quickly for you, simply tap the snail icon to hear the words more slowly. Listen to pronunciation recorded by a native English speaker and then record and play back your own voice to practice your English speaking skills!

When traveling to foreign countries, make sure you bring the app with you! Ideally, you listen to a phrase and repeat it, but if your accent is terrible, you can play the voice on the app to local people (e.G., a waiter or store clerk). Language barrier while traveling abroad will no longer exist!

I recommend this app to everyone who wants to learn English, it only takes willpower and focuses. Any time a day, anywhere I can stop and practice.

Review: PCmag

Memrise won’t make you fluent in a foreign language, but it’s an excellent study aid. This web and mobile app goes a long way toward helping you memorize characters, vocabulary, and phrases. It’s not just for learning languages, either. It’s also excellent for helping math, science, economics, and so forth. As with most study apps, you can create your own course material, or use content created and shared by other users of the app. Memrise incorporates questions and quizzes, so it’s not just another flashcard app. The free tier of service is more than adequate, and it’s challenging to boot. For free language study, it’s one of my favorite apps and a PCMag Editors’ Choice. There’s a paid membership if you’re hungry for more.

So far I’ve had a wonderful time using tandem, and the best thing is is that it’s free. It begins by putting you on a short waiting list but I was let in after an hour or so (maybe not even that) and instantly I was talking to new people. It could use a feature in which you choose to receive a message.
