For serious language learners, you need to check out Ling-q. You will be able to improve multiple aspects of your language skill: reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary. And you can join the learning community to find a language exchange partner. This learning platform was developed by a linguist, Steve Kaufman, who himself is one of those freaky polyglots – he speaks several languages fluently. And he’s always deeply immersed in learning a new one. There are a lot of cute gamey elements to keep you motivated also.
Learning with Learning Platforms
Apps, just like textbooks and language lessons, are a medium through which a language can be studied. The way you use them will affect how successful you are. Here are some tips for getting the most out of language apps:
- Learn from diverse sources (not just apps). Beware the app which sells itself as the Holy Grail of language learning.
- Develop a rhythm. The best apps encourage habit building, because the successful formation of a habit ensures your safe and regular return.
- Make it social. Find a friend to accompany your learning.
