Top Simple iPhone Learn language Apps


Duolingo is a very popular learn language app, for a good reason. It is so simple and easy to use. It will change the way you learn languages. You will learn the grammar, pronunciations, and everything else. The thing is, when using this app, you will have so much fun, and that’s important. It makes things easier, and more enjoyable. You can learn any language you want. Even if you are have zero knowledge of a certain language, French, for example, you’ll be able to follow and learn it by yourself. Set your goal before you start. You will be given four lives (the heart icon that is located on the top of your screen), and each time you give a wrong answer, you’ll lose one heart. If your answers are correct, you will pass the level, and get a reward. For me, one of the best things about this app is that you can invite your friends, so you can learn the new language together. I enjoyed my Spanish lesson. What language would you like to learn?
