Pick Up a New Language in Your Spare Time

Pick Up a New Language in Your Spare Time

If you’re looking for something to do that’s engaging and will keep you entertained from the comfort of your Parkside apartment, take the time to study that language you've always wanted to learn. There are many apps available today that make picking up a new language lots of fun. These specially designed platforms create an engaging experience that will keep you hooked on learning. Here are four popular apps that users love.

Mondly

Mondly is designed to teach you common phrases instead of putting you through the doldrums of memorizing individual words. This is the perfect app if you’re preparing to travel the world. It also prioritizes learning the language from actual native speakers so you will be able to learn conversational phrases and nail the accent.

Babbel

Babbel helps you learn a language like you would in a classroom, with an emphasis on grammar and spelling. However, the lessons are delivered to you in a fun and intuitive way, giving you the skills to speak with confidence and retain everything you learn. Based on real-life conversations, this app helps you shape an individual path that is best suited to your learning style. Using The Babbel Method, you will become conversational in no time.

Memrise

Memrise prides itself on being the opposite of textbook learning. The app optimizes technology and science to make languages fun. Their in-house linguists strive to give you a sense of the culture to aid language acquisition and make each lesson a real-life experience. Memrise lives by the motto "make it fun, or go home.”

Drops

Drops is the best language app for visual learners. It uses games and puzzles to help you study up to 35 different languages, and it feels more like a game than a class. This award-winning app makes it fun and easy for people to explore new languages in just five minutes a day.
