Learning a new language was never meant to be about rote memorization. If you want to speak in a different tongue, first and foremost you need to speak - and when possible, interact with other native speakers. But if you can't afford that trip abroad, the Mondly app offers plenty of interactivity on its own.
This language learning app was voted Editor's Choice in the category by Google Play and Best of 2016 in the App Store, with good reason. It offers a curriculum in one of 33 different languages that focus on conversation, and it does this by exposing you to chats between native speakers. You'll pick up phrases quickly through short, easily digestible lessons while Mondly fine-tunes your pronunciation through the latest speech recognition technology. You'll also get essential tools like a verb conjugator, and those with an Android phone can even practice naming objects IRL with the MondlyAR functionality.
A lifetime subscription in a language of your choice to Mondly is $39.99, over 80% off the list price.
