Lingo Vocabulary Trainer app review: brush up on a variety of languages

Reviews

Introduction

It's not exactly easy to pick up another language, especially if you don't have the time or money to sign up for a class. The Lingo Vocabulary Trainer app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is hoping to lend you a hand where languages are concerned. Through this app you'll be able to learn 12 different languages through the use of four different levels of difficulty. This means the app can be used by people who have no knowledge of the language they are trying to pick up, or already have a basic understanding and are hoping to build upon that.

The Languages Offered

As mentioned the Lingo Vocabulary Trainer app provides users with the ability to pick up 12 different languages which include Portuguese, French, Japanese, German, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, and more. You can start on the first difficulty level and work your way through all four as you start to learn more about the language and progress through the content. There are more than 100 topics to cover giving users a wide variety of practical basics that they can actually use in conversations.

Keep in mind this app requires iOS 7.0 or later and although it's free to download some of the content requires an in-app purchase. Purchases range from $6.99 to $9.99, which is still much cheaper than a class. The app currently has five out of five stars from users and has just gone through a minor update where a bug was fixed. Users have commented how simple it makes the learning process, and that there is a nice variety of topics and images.

Becoming Fluent

Of course becoming fluent in another language is no easy task but the Lingo Vocabulary Trainer app certainly takes a crack at it. The app keeps track of your statistics, there are special groups and levels, and there are more than 5,000 words, images, and pronunciations to explore. Some of the topics that are explored in the various languages are health, tourism, education, food, art, nature, and more. The idea is that the topics are every day ones that will help users in real-life situations.

As for how you use the app, an ideal amount of time is to spend 10-15 minutes per day brushing up on your skills and broadening your knowledge. Short daily lessons will ensure that you work your way through the content in a timely manner while retaining what you’re learning.
