Duolingo is the king of free language learning apps, but if you’re prepared to spend a bit of money Mondly arguably has it beat.
The app has lessons for dozens of languages, including some missing from Duolingo, such as Japanese, and there’s a range of different content, designed to help you read, write and speak your language of choice.
Daily lessons give you something new to learn every day, and there’s also a wide selection of permanent lessons and tests split across numerous categories (such as ‘travel’ and ‘family). There’s even a chat bot, which you can speak to in the language you’re learning to give youb much-needed feedback.
With leaderboards and charts to track and compare your progress there’s also plenty of incentive to keep using Mondly beyond just the satisfaction of learning a new language.
The app actually has quite a lot of free content, so you can try it out without spending anything, but to get the most out of Mondly you’ll ultimately want to stump up for extra content, which starts at $4.99/£4.99 in one-off payments.
