We just did another app wars about which is the better language learning app, either Babbel or Busuu...

Have you ever used a language learning app and if so, which one? Did you like it?

May I suggest Vokabel? This is an application I have developed :-). It’s free (and no ads) with different type of quizzes.

Right now I've got Biscuit (flashcards), AnkiDroid, Duolingo, PowerVocab and Google Translate on my phone. Surprisingly enough Google Translate is probably the one that gets the most usage and actually helps me learn vocabulary the best!

Hi Loie,

Thanks for bringing attention to the many apps available for learning languages on Android!

Babel and Busuu publish great apps to learn a variety of languages. I'm the founder of VidaLingua which publishes multilingual dictionaries that users may find complimentary to these apps. I posted an announcement for our Portuguese English Dictionary in the Let me show you my app section. We also publish English > Spanish, French, Italian & German dictionaries.

Hi Loie,

I suggest you to try Hello-Hello's language learning apps. They use innovative teaching methodologies like comics scripts, animated videos, notes, reminders, which make the courses both engaging and easy to learn a foreign language.

App Name: Spanish - Learn Spanish (Hello-Hello)

Hi all,
I just developed an app to improve vocabulary. It started from a need since me myself learning a foreign language and couldn’t find in the google play what I needed. I developed it for myself and used it for a while and it help me a lot. Than I thought why not to put it on google play so everyone can get the best out of it :)

It is designed to improve vocabulary. Its core features are:
  • the home screen widget... Whenever you turn your screen on the widget is there asking you a word. Imagine how many times actually you are checking your phone through the day? Answering each time one question makes a lot of difference on your knowledge!
  • Translate function: it uses google translator to translate what you need in both directions. You heard a word doesn’t know the meaning? It translates it to your native language. You want to learn a word? It translates it to the foreign language you are learning
  • It has pre-prepared word packages for different languages ready to be installed

It also keeps tracks of your progress and ask you the words which you don’t fully learned yet.
Its free, no ads...

And i would love to get some feedback and ideas. Actually some of the ideas in this version of the app came from users and i am working on something which is requested from some other users. I am greatfull that people are actually using the feedback feature and send me nice suggestions.

I don't know about other user's have tried this or not but i have tried learning french using the Android app named Dulingo which is again available for free in the store. I found it quite interesting learning language using the application is just fun like it will pronounce as well as a real image of the thing is given. And its been more than a month i haven't used it but still remember some of the basics like La Pomme, la fille, la roughe....... etc... I will suggest you try using it as for me that application will be the best. After looking at this thread i remember about my language learning days Dulingo has really helped me in learning out. I don't know much about the language but i'll say it has helped me in at least in passing out my french paper.

You could also try Colango. It's a social language learning app where you can practice and learn sentences from native speakers and get corrections on your writings. Search for Colango in Play store.

LPlayer (Watch n' Learn)

LPlayer is a video player that plays most video files and helps you get the meaning of words from subtitles (words of foreign languages or the meaning of complex/unknown words for you in your native language), move (seek) between subtitles or repeat current subtitle

image image

If you are studying a foreign language and your knowledge of that language is intermediate or upper intermediate level then you are possibly trying to watch movies in their original language
This app will help you get the translation/meaning of words which you don't know opening them from subtitles in a dictionary app while you're watching movies with subtitles in a foreign language

When you play a video with subtitles you can:
- select the words in the subtitles to open them in a dictionary app (see the list of available dictionary apps below)
- move (seek) between subtitles, repeat current subtitle with buttons

If you don't have subtitles for some videos on your device you can try to find and download them using this app ("Menu/Subtitles/Search Subtitles")

LPlayer can open selected words (from subtitles) in the next Dictionary/Translator Apps:
- ColorDict Dictionary
- GoldenDict
- Google Translate
- ABBYY Lingvo Dictionaries
- Offline dictionaries
- Fora Dictionary
- English Dictionary - Offline
- Wiktionary
- Korean Dictionary & Translate
- Wikipedia
- Dictan
- HedgeDict
- Aard 2
