Apps for Learning a New Language

Language learning is one of the key academic areas that can be readily boosted by the use of a variety of iPad apps. These apps will allow you and your students to learn a new language   and improve your communicational skills in the target language using different activities, games, and practices. The app store is teeming with language learning apps but the best three I would recommend are the following:

1- Duolingo

Duolingo is a great web tool and mobile app for learning a new language. Duolingo provides a plethora of translation activities  through which learners get to practice their new language. Duolingo gamifies language learning by using a system of rewards for good achievements. It also gives learners the opportunity to translate real-world texts in the language they are learning and thus help other learners.

2- Busuu

Busuu is a powerful iPad app that combines vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension tests to boost language learning. Busuu allows you to learn key words and phrases and practice what you learned with native speakers. Other features Bussu offers  include :

  • Over 150 everyday topics containing over 3,000 words and phrases.
  • Quality courses based on the CEFR, a recognised framework for language learning.
  • Language feedback from native speakers.
  • 11 languages in one app! English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Turkish, Japanese, Chinese.
  • Listening, reading, writing and speaking practice
