  1. Hey - I recently created an app that allows people to internalize and master numbers in their target language. I found that when learning Turkish, even though I knew the numbers, I couldn't actually understand them when spoken to me quickly. This led me to create a tool that would help me practice. It's called Foreign Numbers. It's available on iOS and Android now. I'd love for you to check it out and give me any feedback that you might have! Or any tips/tricks you have for learning numbers in another language. http://foreignnumbers.com
  2. cosmopolite app makes it easy to immerse into genuine French content and grow vocabulary: cosmopoliteapp.com Not for absolute beginners though, at least lower intermediate level required. Any feedback is welcome.

  5. I speak Maltese, which is spoken by around 400,000 people. It is a unique language, which is a mixture of Arabic, Italian, French etc...You can learn it here for free: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alpha.android.maltese
  6. I'd like to share with you https://words-keeper.com - web app(available in browser from any device) for foreign language learners and teachers. It allows to build your own vocabulary, keep words, phrases, notes(articles, pictures, rules, teacher's worksheets etc), create learning groups, share with other people, train. Will it be useful for you? What do you think? I need your feedback.
  7. As a long-term language learner I've always been interested in ways to practice and learn. There are quite a few good learning apps available these days, but there aren't many good ones when it comes to actually using the language. I wanted something more like real dialogue with natives, so I've built (my day job is in web development) a web app that focuses on ability to express oneself naturally. Summary of features: Collaborate with a native-speaker (or work on your own) to describe a picture Get feedback from native-speakers Statistics + experience points to keep track of progress Languages: Chinese, English, Finnish, Japanese, Swedish The app is free to use (it's a side project of mine), but you need an invite code to register. Ask me and I'll send you one! This is a work in progress, and if you try this out and find you want some other features I'll happily consider adding them. Any feedback deeply appreciated!

  8. Hello, If you are struggling with grammar, memorizing new words or other boring stuff while learning a language, I have found a great language learning platform to study 100+languages for free. It's called Bliu Bliu (https://bliubliu.com/) Basically you read random content from the internet which was selected according to your level of competence. You press words that you already know and that’s how you "level up". No memorizing, no translations, you just figure out meanings like a baby from context. Also no grammar learning you just figure out it from context too. You can add your own books there as well. Another thing they are offering is 30days challenges where you talk with a native and get all info you need to improve. They have about 10ish different language challenges and they actually work! I was surprised to see my Japanese improve so fast and I could actually speak by the end of the month. this one: https://bliubliu.com/en/learning/challenge/learn-japanese-in-30-days-1/#video-102 I highly recommend it to busy people and for those who hate memorizing boring stuff, it's a lot of fun and not at all pricey.
  9. Hello, Being myself a passionate language learner, I have created an app for those who are in need of practice. Our team strongly believes that speaking is the key to learn a language, I know it from my own experience as I have moved abroad and mastered French within less than a year. We have just finished the first version of Lingtwins.com - an app that puts in touch native speakers around the world to practice languages together. The platform has also a couple of handy perks that help you during language acquisition process - a built in translator, vocab book and personal learning statistics. This web platform is entirely free, and currently is available to learn English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian and Ukrainian. You can check out our explanation video here: Follow us on Facebook here: www.facebook.com/lingtwins Let me know what you think! You can email me any thoughts or suggestions at lena@lingtwins.com Best, Lena
  10. Check it out on the Google Play store This mini app lets you listen and learn fun words.

Enjoy Check it out on the Google Play store
  11. Hi, I'm thinking of creating an app to help people learn languages. I want to understand further how people learn and would really greatly appreciate 1 minute of your time completing this anonymous survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/DVYLFTQ No sign up required. Many thanks in advance, Richard
  12. The best way I found to learn French is through the following free Android app. It has native prononciation of words for very common spoken phrases in French! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alpha.android.french Bon travail!
  13. Hi everyone, new member here. I'm from a text-based game called Cantr and I thought you might (or might not!) find it a really compelling way to learn or practice language skills. Alright, so here's the thing - Cantr isn't for everyone. And it certainly wasn't designed with language learning as the primary goal. However, it is a lot of fun, and offers an immersion opportunity for language learners. Before I keep going - let me just say that the game is totally free in every respect, this isn't spam or marketing or advertising - the game is run entirely by volunteers and operates on donations (though donations are so minimal that the owner just pays for servers out-of-pocket). Cantr is basically a player-driven story. It's a society simulator. You play from the perspective of a character and contribute to the story through "roleplay". It's entirely text-based, and that's intentional - it's supposed to be like reading a novel, except the story is 100% by players. The game world is so open that you can be anything you want - a politician, a philosopher, a trader, a CEO, a pirate, the leader of a rebellion, a king or queen, a homeless person, a nobody, a somebody, a traveller, an explorer, a colonist... I could go on forever. The game has existed for a long time - like 15 years - and the society has evolved as such. It's a really interesting game and I recommend you check it out regardless of whether you want to learn a language or not. However, here's the interesting part. In the game there are virtual continents. Each continent has a language group. If you register a new character, you get to select a language group. So I'm an English speaker wanting to learn Japanese and Spanish, for example, so most of my characters are English, but I "spawned" a few Spanish characters. Now, I'm immersed with native Spanish speakers and I'm able to practice my Spanish in a real-world context. The game administrators actually encourage this, and players are aware that people are doing this to learn a language. It's a really inviting community in that sense. Give it a try and let me know what you think! I'll stick around here if anyone needs any support. You can try it out here: https://cantr.net/ A couple of things to keep your expectation right: The style is a little outdated, but trust me - once you're inside the game, the depth of the game is very good. You can build tools, machines, harvest resources, construct vehicles, tame animals (including horses to ride), make your own buildings and more. You can change the theme color of the game once you're in, as well. There is a thing called the Capital Rule, which is to protect the immersion, or the "story" that players are creating. Simply, this means, "stay inside the mind of your character", so you have to play as if you're actually that character. That's it! I think you will love it and learn much more quickly in your respective language groups. Good luck!!
  14. A few months ago, I gave WaniKani, a Japanese Kanji learning tool, a try - and progressed through the first few levels of study. It's similar to Heisig's "Remembering the Kanji" in the way it uses mnemonics to aid with kanji recognition and recall. Each day, you get lessons and reviews to complete, and the reviews change depending on your performance. I liked it quite a bit myself, though I had to stop when my trial ran out; I wasn't ready to put money into an online learning tool just yet. I'm curious, though: have any of you given WaniKani a try? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Is it viable for learning the core kanji effectively?
  15. While I was using Duolingo on my tablet, I was very frustrated with the app because there were no grammatical explanations (so if you're a beginner, you have to learn things via trial-and-error method, which isn't really the best choice) and you had to type in a lot of things, which is a real bother on phones and tablets. I always make a lot of mistakes when I type on my phone simply because the "keys" are too close and sometimes the phone doesn't register every tap... anyway, Duolingo on either a tablet or a phone is a nightmare! Just recently, I saw my mum using Duolingo on computer and I glanced at the screen. I was very surprised simply because there were more options available! There is even a grammar section! Before every lesson, there is a quick introduction into the basic grammar concepts. My mum had a table with the full conjugation of German verbs which she copied into her notebook. So practical and useful! Thus, I can only say, Duolingo as an app is a bad choice. It's good only if you are revising the lesson. But if you want to study, you have to do it on PC. When you're on PC, you have explanations - not to mention that typing is made much easier considering that you have a real keyboard to type on. Plus, the screen is wide and you can do other things as well. What is your experience with Duolingo? Have you ever tried it on PC?
  16. Hello! I have a free app to recommend to you all who do not know of it. It's name, you ask? It's Duolingo! This app sends notifications reminding you to continue learning after a day, as well as offering many languages to learn (which new ones get added every so often)! I have been using it for my Swedish and French, and I'm not doing bad with it. Consider using Duolingo for your next language! This app also offers customization options for the owl (it's mascot), which can be bought using 'Lingots" from completing lessons, another way to usher you into learning languages.
  17. Hi guys, my girlfriend and I developed a language app to learn German, Spanish and Thai. It includes around 1000 phrases and words, a quiz and intelligent flashcards: Learn Thai: http://simplylearnlanguages.com/ Learn German: http://simplylearnlanguages.com/german/ Learn Spanish: http://simplylearnlanguages.com/spanish/ There is an Android version and we are currently developing the iOS version. I attached some sample screenshots. What do you guys think of it? Would be happy to hear some feedback
  18. Hello, guys! This is my first post, but I know a really good place to help with your language learning! It's called Pronunciator; it is a website and an app (I prefer the website more, but I use both). The program features 80 different languages you can learn. It is a completely free site but only if you are a student and your school supports the program (like my school) or you are a member of your local library and they support it, which they most likely do. If you are not a student or do not have a library membership you will have to pay. I am learning Korean through this site, and it is really helpful for learning vocabulary and useful phrases, but the downside is the romanization is TERRIBLE. If you are learning Korean like me, I recommend you use this site only if you already mastered the Korean alphabet and can read it. I was lucky because I could already do this going into the program. I know that German and Chinese is ok with this aspect, but I can't speak for other languages and how well the romanization is for them. Some of the features pronunciator offers are progress tracking, quizzes on different skill sets, ProRadio, ProFlix and flashcards, The progress tracker will show you how far you've gotten in a lesson with an average of the grades you've made on assignments. The quizzes are made to test you on vocabulary, listening comprehension, reading comprehension, spelling, writing, and pronunciation. With the pronunciation quizzes you speak into a speaker (on your phone, tablet, or computer) and it will tell you how well you pronounced it and give you a percentage grade on each set you pronounce. ProRadio is kind of like Pandora but it gives you songs in the language you're learning with the lyrics on the right side of you screen. ProFlix is the same type of deal. It gives you a movie to watch, but it also includes quizzes and drills. The flashcards help you to learn by letting you rate how well you the word or phrase with 4 choices. How you rate yourself lets Pronunciator know how long to bring the vocabulary up again. For tonal languages such as Chinese there is Pitch Perfect which compares the tones to musical notes and then compares your pronunciation to native speakers. I hope this helps! Let me know what you think of the program. To sign up using a school or library account go to their database and search for it and it will let you sign up. If you would like to take a look at it here is the link. http://www.pronunciator.com/
  19. I recently discovered this app while looking for an offline translator and something to expand my vocabulary in either language. Let me tell you, it has a VERY nicely done design and aesthetic. Not only that, but it has quick games and quizzes that are incredibly helpful if your vocabulary quantity is lacking in either language (though it is mainly targeting English learners who speak Spanish I believe). Its games are quick and challenging, and I'm pretty sure it all works offline as well. Here's the Google Play download link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nglish.spanish.english.translator&hl=es_419
  20. Hi guys A friend and I came up with an awesome idea on how to increase and practice Spanish vocabulary. What if some of the words in the text we already read on the internet, were translated to their Spanish translation? So we'll read them in context? So we built it! Lynonym.com - Feel free to try us out and let me know what you think!
  21. Hello,so I started studying Swedish this year and wanted to use my smartphone to learn my vocabulary. Therefor I wrote an app for me, that asks me words I entered in the app frequently over the day via simple notifications. I look at my smartphone all day, anyway, so why shouldn't I use it for this purpose, too?It worked out really well and I uploaded it in the android app store, because I thought some people might want to use it, too. It does not cost anything and there is no advertisement. I just hope it helps someone. If you have any ideas how i could improve it, please tell me!Here is the link:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.natzer.jonas.whatmeansCheers,Jonas
  22. Hi guys I'm new to the forum and looking forward to see what it's got. I really wanted to share something that I'm working on so I can get users feedback.

What if some of the words in the text we already read on the internet, were translated to their Spanish translation? So we'll read them in context? So we built it!

  23. I made a web application to look up words or expressions in dialogues from movies. This way you can see how these words are used idiomatically. http://www.subasub.com It also translates words to give you some idea about them beforehand. The main feature though is the ability to learn immersively from the dialogues. It currently has support for these languages: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Hungarian. I would be very happy to get some feedback on it. Maybe you are missing a feature or you would like another language etc. It is still under active development, so there are probably a few things to improve on. Larion
  24. Has anyone tried the Babbel app? I have seen lots of commercials, but was wondering how it compared to Duolingo. I hate the thought of spending a lot of money on learning a language. It should be free. Thanks for any input.
