- Duolingo is one of the most popular language-learning apps for mobile. It supports a dozen+ languages (although still waiting for them to add Korean!).Very engaging and easy to use. Duolingo is the best.I've been using Duolingo for the past couple of months to refresh my Spanish. One of my favorite features is the conversation bot that let's your practice your skills. The structure is really easy to use. The lessons are mixed up into different styles - flash card, matching, fill in the blank, etc. One small complaint is that the Spanish this app teaches is mildly different from the Spanish I learned in school - vocabulary is different. I really hope they add Japanese some day.
My reading and listening skills have improved so much since using Duolingo, I couldn't recommend it more. I'm not naive in thinking it will make it fluent as it's not the best for speaking skills but has vastly helped me improve and build up my language confidence.
I listed "gem restrictions" because I would like to use it without limitations, but I understand that it is part of their business model.
- Memrise is the best in my opinion: it has many different courses and the basic phrases there are more like a phrasebook for travelling – family, food, directions, etc. so they are really useful (I'm looking at you, Duolingo and your "spider eats bread" phrases 🤔).
