English is still a universal language all around the world. It’s relatively simple when compared to some other languages, thus allowing people to communicate easily. We can say freely, you’ll be looked at weirdly if you don’t know the basic, at least. Even frowned upon, and lose many jobs opportunities. Even though probably studied it in school, you probably found those classes boring. Maybe you didn’t understand them fully or you’re looking to improve your knowledge and change your profession. Whatever the case may be, hear what we have to say about 10 best Android apps to learn English.
You probably have heard of this one already, as Duolingo is used by five and a half million people already. The app is actually loads of fun because it’s not a simple lecture, wall-of-text type. It’s actually made in a form of a game, where you’ll guess the right word for objects, animals, and more. They promise 34 classes of their lessons are equal to one semester at school! Since we’re all different, and progress at a different pace, it’s up to you! Duolingo will adapt to your learning style and speed, so start today!
The second app we’d like to present to you – Memrise! This app has a beautifully designed and extremely useful. You will both learn to speak like a native speaker, but have a lot of fun along the way. That’s because the app allows you to use your newfound skills of language right away. You’ll be able to talk to a chatbot in your language of choice. There’s no better way than a ‘real’ conversation. You can spot the words you don’t know right away, and find a translation. What’s better – you can watch videos of native speakers in action through the app. It’s real people, not paid actors, which speaks volumes about the app.
You might already be familiar with Rosetta Stone. Not because the stone allowed mankind to understand Egyptian hieroglyphs, but because there’s a PC version already. With that being said, this app is certainly one of best English learning apps for Android. It allows for an easy learning experience and goes as fast as you follow. It hones a natural way of learning, to allow you to learn a second (or third!) language, just the way you learned the first. When you get a sense of the language, you can use the TruAccent feature to improve it even more. The app will listen to your audio recording and help you refine it.
We can’t miss this orange beauty of an app. What first attracted us were the color palettes, but what made us keep using it was the educational value. We just fell in love with this app because they understand our habits and needs. For example, because they know people are very busy (else you’d go to a school, not looking for an app), their lessons are short but concise. The lectures won’t last more than 15 minutes, and you sure have that many on your daily schedule. Other than that, the lectures are entertaining and will help you both write and speak the English language with ease. Why embarrass yourself and freeze when talking to a stranger when you can try it out in Babbel first?
Yes, you read that right, it’s an app coming from the giant TV service – BBC. Precisely-their English speakers and presenters. And what better way to learn fluent English than from the people that get paid to talk in that language? This fact itself makes it one of the best choices to learn English via an app on Android. The app itself fits your current knowledge level and wastes none of your time. The lessons are formed in a form of a 6-minute exercise with audio, transcripts and vocabulary additions. You can see the meanings and pronunciation of the words you don’t know, and learn on the spot. Whether you’re preparing to work or study abroad, they have both English at Work and English at University lectures to prepare you for the task.
This one is relatively unknown, at least it was to us before we saw how good it really is. Mondly app will allow you to learn English with free, daily lessons. You start with core words, then learn how to form sentences correctly. Once the base knowledge is sound, they will allow you to use chatbots and start a conversation. It’s very useful for both beginners, but for those that are traveling to a new country as well. You’ll learn how the pronunciation, understand the grammar behind and expand your vocabulary. Trust us, you’ll be thankful in the future.
Busuu app has a beautiful blue and white design to it that reminds us of Messenger. And you know how much time you spend chatting with your friends. What would you say if we told you-you can expand that circle? You’ll do so by using one of the best English language teaching apps for Android on the market. Before you go ahead and start, they will give you a placement test. By that test, you can know which level of English you possess already, and where you will start. It’s a full-fledged app, offering 150 different courses, along with grammar and accent correction by natives. What’s best – it’s completely offline, so you can learn wherever you are!
As you probably know, one of the meanings of the tandem is “working together”. That’s exactly what you’ll do, but with a huge community of native English speakers, among others. You’ll get to practice your language knowledge completely free, and even make friends along the way! You probably used Tinder, so you know the deal. The app will match you with a partner that is interested in yours and will teach you theirs. Why pay for lectures or travel to a school, when you can save time and learn way better from a person that lives in that country?
HelloTalk received an award for the best social apps in a selected market by Google Play. That should convince you how good it is, approved by both a lot of users and tech giant itself. The app itself is reminiscent of Tandem, in a way that you’ll be connected to a person whose needs match yours. But you’re not limited to chats, you can also make audio and video calls to immerse yourself completely. Of course, even though English is the most common and highly sought, you can learn other languages too. You shouldn’t limit yourself to one person-you can post a Moment, which is something like an Instagram story. Then people from that country can reply and clarify more about their language and culture.
We’ve come to the end of our topic, and we’d like to present to you an app that is pleasant to your eyes, but also extremely useful. It has some unique features that others don’t, for example, you can read a text and hear vocals side-by-side, to help you get it just right. Also, you’ll get to see a translation in your own language right away, so you can see the connections. It’s a great app to both read books, but also learn the language along the way. Why waste time with flashcards and word-by-word learning? If you’re busy with something, let Beelinguapp play an audio-book, and multitask effortlessly!
