Idiomatic Forest -- Practice writing and written conversation with natives

1 post in this topic

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!

      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.

      cosmopolite app makes it easy to immerse into genuine French content and grow vocabulary: 
      Not for absolute beginners though, at least lower intermediate level required.
      Any feedback is welcome.
