Drops: Learn 28 new languages App Description

Available languages: + Korean + Japanese + Chinese / Cantonese + Spanish / Latin-American Spanish + French + German + Dutch + Italian + Russian + Portuguese (EU) / Brazilian Portuguese + Hebrew + Arabic + Turkish + Tagalog (Filipino) + Vietnamese + Indonesian + Danish + Swedish + Norwegian + Icelandic + Hungarian + Esperanto + Hindi + US English / UK English Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning! Only 5 minutes a day: Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes! The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization. 100% Visual learning: Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the delicious pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently: you won’t have use the word of your native language but connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Quicker, better and more fun! :) Effortless practice: We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but in this case you don’t waste your time playing instead you build a valuable asset: knowledge of a new language. Swipe based: We believe in quick pace and keyboard typing is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes ;) Strategic vocabulary selection: The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 1700+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken. Forge learning habit: Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it! I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :) p.s.: We take full responsibility for the potential addiction to learning. ----------------- Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!

    I started to learn Italian with drops 350 days ago. I am thankful as it is such a great vocabulary builder. Now I’m using it with my 6 years old who learns French and he loves drops! We really need Thai: One of the most touristic places in the world and one of the nicest people. The language and culture is fantastic. Thaï is a very important language and you should consider adding it. Other feedback, The app should sync with another free application such as Duolingo so that the vocabulary can be used in phrases.
  • Engaging Way to Learn a Language

    I've been using drops for about three weeks now, specifically to leisurely learn Japanese. I have the "genius" subscription (about $8 a month--I think--for unlimited use). I've found it to be a fun and convenient way to build my vocabulary. In the Japanese section there are over a 1000 words available, so there's plenty of material. After introducing a word, the app gives a good mix of entertaining matching, spelling, etc. drills to help cement the word. For Japanese, there's two difficulty settings: beginner (only hiragana) and intermediate (katakana and kanji). There's also an option to have romaji subtitles. I've found the beginner setting great for working on basic pronunciation and the intermediate good for getting familiar with kanji. In the beginner setting, there's a hiragana section in which you can get familiar with all the symbols (which I loved). There isn't a section for voiced hiragana or voiced katakana, but there are other flash card-style apps available for the syllabaries, so it's not a huge issue. The app has a dojo section in which you can practice all the words you've reviewed together. I've really liked it as a way of gauging my progress. For me, the dojo always crashes on the intermediate setting, but when I contacted drops about it they replied right away, and I'm confident they'll fix it. Overall, I think this is a great app and I definitely recommend it.

    I really like the interface and I think the layout is really good. However, some things seem not to work at least for Arabic when I put a word in the ignore category it doesn’t make a difference. And it repeats a lot of the words over and over too much and often chooses odd words to learn. For example I just did foods and there was probably 15-20 words for it, but it still left out a lot of basic words such as chicken or apple, which wouldn’t be as bad if it didn’t have random words like “mushroom”. The concept of the app is good and very engaging compared to other apps, but the words and word generation issues need to be fixed.

    Of course, I am learning Japanese and it is a nice language. This app is fine and all, but the point is that I have to wait about 10 hours to learn for 5 minutes. Yes, I know that there are paid subscriptions, but I don’t want to pay them. Even if I do get to learn the language, all I’m asking is that we get at least 10 or 15. I have an idea? What if the regular is 5 minutes for lazy people (like me), which the app already takes advantage of. But, after 5 minutes the app could say that we get an extra 10 if we want to keep learning. This is just a suggestion. Or, you could shorten the time? Other than that, it’s a great app. I recommend it.
