There are more and more language apps being released in the App Store every day. Most of these offer only one language, but there are some apps that offer a ton of different languages as they are based on existing programs. Innovative Language 101 is one of these apps and since I have just moved to a new country where I need to get acquainted with the language, I have taken it upon myself to use this language learning app in a very serious way.
This app to learn languages with, by Innovative Language Learning, LLC is available for both iPad and iPad, and comes with a seven-day free trial where you can try out all the lessons available within one language.
Innovative language learning app runs on devices with iOS 10.3 or later with support of up to iOS 13.0 and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It will need 53.8 MB of free memory space on your mobile device to download, install, and learn laguages with this app.

The app offers 20 different language lessons that you can choose from when you first pick the language. Each of these languages comes with a full list of subjects broken down in different difficulty levels, from absolute beginner to intermediate and more advanced.
All of these lessons include different subjects, and all of these subjects are broken down into different parts. For example, the introduction lesson has a 15-minute audio file, a vocabulary list, expansion lessons to give you more ways to use what you learned, and lesson notes.
Considering that each lesson has so many different topics, you will need to download these files to your iPad or iPhone and they will take up a lot of space.
The Lessons and Subscribing to the Program
The lessons are actually really well-done. Even though the audio part can sound a little bit over the top, the content of these audio lessons are fantastic if you just want to learn a language while listening. All the other content from each lesson are simply an addition to what you hear in the audio.
In the audio lesson you will have a native speaker of the language you’re learning as well as a native English speaker. If you are happy with this app, like myself, you might want to subscribe after your first seven days with the app.
This will cost you $9.99 for the basic pass, which makes the app usable on PC and mobile platforms. You can get a mobile subscription as well, which is $7.99 per month, and a premium membership will set you back $24.99 and will give you access to some extra content.
This is definitely one of the best language learning apps that I have seen since the launch of Duolingo. The good thing of that app is that it’s free, but this app offers so many languages, and you can learn simply by listening, that this will be hard to beat. The subscriptions are a bit pricey, but offering full compatibility with iPad and iPhone makes this app an absolute winner.
