  1. What is Lingodeer? Many of you might be familiar with the app called "Duolingo." Lingodeer is very similar, but alongside the same style of gamified lessons that Duolingo provides: Lingodeer offers professionally made grammar notes on every single skill, features full native audio recordings on every word and sentence, has built in grammar review features, has a global leaderboard (And friends leaderboard) for competition, features video stories at the end of every skill, has built in pronunciation practice (Sentence shadowing capabilities), and features 10 languages to learn (with Italian on the way) taught in 13 languages. The app is available on iOS and Android. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me (I run their online forums as volunteer work and have followed the app since it was released, I have also completed the first half of Japanese and Korean on the app).
  2. Are you looking to explore and learn an African language? You can learn the Efik language, the language of the people of Calabar in Nigeria. The app speaks the Efik Language and also showcases the rich culture of the Efik people and you can also watch videos to see how to prepare some delicious Efik cuisines.

  3. Hey Linguaholics! I'd like to speak today on the subject of Memrise, an app used for learning languages. You are all probably very familiar with the app, as it has been around for a while now and has a huge amount of members who are actively learning and revising language skills. Firstly, before speaking about the specific topic of this article, I must clean up a common misconseption: Memrise is mainly based around the learning and remembering of vocabulary, but this isn't the program's only function. As the platform progressed, becoming a larger community, it added more feauture to keep up with the picky language learner (you must admit, we can be picky!). So, you can now find tools on the site such as Chatbots, which enhances your skill of native conversation in common situations, and Grammarbot, which allows you to learn and revise grammatical concepts (which in some languages can be a complete nightmare! Take Finnish, for example, a language that has fifteen - yes, fifteen cases that are all marked differently! Nightmare!). This means that Memrise is a platform used for more than just vocabulary - it also has great potential to help a learner with spelling, grammar, speaking, reading and even cultural based tips such as tone and pitch. Adding to this, the site and mobile versions both offer the ability to complete their "Review" words through a number of different ways. Listening, speaking, speed review and classic are the methods available, which gives the user a huge range of accessability to the language - just like they were living in the country. "Listening" gives tons of points (a bonus there, especially when I'm running late on my streaks!) and allows the user to practise - well... listening. The use of native speakers means you can really understand how not everyone sounds robotic when speaking a language. The "Speed Review" feature is really great - it simulates the pressure and need for fast-thinking that would be needed in a practical native-leaner situation. "Classic Review" is starting to seem a bit rubbish now to all you memrise-free-boring-class-review-users, isn't it? Yep! All these great features come at a price. You can buy the pro package on a monthly, quarterly, yearly or one-off basis. So who out of the Linguaholic Forum's users uses Memrise Pro and what do you think about it? I've used Memrise for probably around four years, and two of those years I've been a user of the Pro version. Therefore I think I'm in a fairly good position to give an opinion. My opinion, then, is that if you tick these boxes (see below), get Pro. Otherwise, it may not be neccassary for you. Firstly, I recommend that you're learning multiple languages. I don't mean add a load of courses so you have an impressive dashboard, no - I mean you should be actively learning multiple languages and enjoy it too. For example, I actively learn French (not so much anymore - I'm fluent on paper), Spanish, Italian, German and Japanese. I also learn some other languages not so much, and sometimes only "on and off". Also, have an open mind to learn new languages. If you're going to invest in a premium version of a platfrom, make the most of it! Take my example again, I've learnt some Arabic, Estonian, Romanian, Mandarin, Cantonese and many more. I'm open minded to languages. I'll see a course and say, "I'll give it a go!", so I'm really getting the most out of my subscription. Another point to add is I recommend that you have been using Memrise (or learning languages in general) for at least a year. If this is a passing hobby that'll last a month or two - go ahead and try a month of Pro and see how it is. But there's no point getting a subscription if you don't plan on taking languages seriously. By all means go ahead, but I'm just trying to help you not waste your money. If you're new to language learning (not a specific language, just the hobby/passion in general) maybe invest the money in a text book on language and linguistics so you can get some base knowledge while you practise vocabulary in your chosen language(s) on the Memrise Free version. Finally, I advise you to stick to your goals, whether they are Memrise streaks or classroom targets. Try staying on track with Memrise Free, and if it works out and you tick the other boxes, get Pro. Why is staying on track of your goals important? Well it sounds cliché (nice bit of French there) but it's like anything in life - work hard and put in the effort and you will get great things. I think kids these days have it too easy! Back in my day.... Okay, okay I can't say that yet I'm thirteen but whatever. It's not worth investing in a paid platform if you're not going to utilise it on a regular basis. Voilà (I'm on a role!), there's my opinion on Memrise Pro. It's great and feauture-filled, but comes at a price so you should think about the mentions points before investing into it. Don't forget to share your opinion and whether you're a Pro user - I'd love to here some different views! Have a great morning, after, evening or night wherever in the world you are. - Frankie Quote of the Article

  7. 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

  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!!

  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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!

  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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. 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!
