What's the best language learning app?

I'm especially keen to learn sign language. Is there anything out there for it?

    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.

    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 🤔).

    seems to be more professional and less ads.
