Best Language Learning Applications for Beginners

Do you want to move to a new country?

Tired of being the only one who can't switch from one language to another at the party or tea table?

Do you want to break into new markets for work with your newly acquired language without needing a translator each time?

Does your significant other speak another language and you would like to learn the language too?

While all the above reasons are motivations enough to learn a new language, you will want solid resources to help you achieve your language learning goals.

Learning a new language can be inspiring and at the same time, it can have its moments of difficulty.

Sometimes, you may be picking up phrases but can't quite find the exact word to express your idea.

Because words have different connotations and meanings from your native language it is key to gather vocabulary so you can express your ideas with precision and even light humour.

According to US Foreign Service Institute it does not take 1000 hours to become fluent in a language.

Actually, it takes the average person 480-720 hours to achieve fluency in a foreign language.

This means with the right amount of time delegated to learning new vocabulary, expressions, grammar and syntax, YOU can be fluent in your desired language in a few months.

This means you will want to use your time with efficient tools and opportunities to immerse yourself in foreign language. One way to expand your vocabulary is through vocabulary learning apps.

For the people who want to take advantage of the endless possibilities of picking up new vocabulary to better express your ideas, these four language learning apps are the best for learning new vocabulary in a new language.

Here is a list of the top 4 vocabulary learning applications you can use to expand your vocabulary in your desired target language quickly, efficiently and easily!

Each lesson is self- paced to be suitable for all levels of learners.

Remember, that applications can only help you, and cannot be solely relied on to become fluent in a language. As always, my main message to students learning English is that they need to be fully immersive in the way they approach the language, from watching movies on Netflix, to having online private or group lessons on Immerse English. It requires time, and a lot of hard work.
