    Modern learning techniques makes learning a new language, much easier and faster. Mainly via gamified learning, or using flashcards. However, to make sure best and fat results, it is important to understand which method hits your brain fast, and hard. For some, gamified learning can make things retain in mind longer. For others, flashcards and repetitive learning would do the trick. For another detailed review, you may check http://www.killerlessons.com/best-language-learning-apps/

    A new language app that I would like to recommend is MemoLingo. It’s an addictive game but will help you learn languages as you play. http://www.memolingoapp.com. Perfect for busy people like you and me.

    Google translate does not have to be on line to work. There is an option to download a language to the device.

    It makes it so much easier being able to learn a language via an app at your own speed; at home, on the go, on the couch or at your desk. You really can learn at your own comfort.

    The interactive nature of the apps recommended also make learning a new language so much more enjoyable.
