Achieve Your Goal

Sometimes learning a new language can feel pretty daunting and can even be enough to turn you off trying. Before you decide it's too tough try learning through an app such as this one. The Speak Spanish app takes a look at the top 200 Spanish phrases and words and will continually work on them. You won't find any quizzes and mini-games in this app; it takes a different approach. It uses an algorithm that the developer states has been scientifically optimized for maximum results. How it works is that you are shown flashcards in a particular pattern that will allow your brain to absorb the information.

Scientific Flashcard Patterns

I find the method of teaching to be really interesting with this app. There is really no thinking required on your part as to how the app will work best for you because the algorithm has already done that. All you need to do is follow along and let your brain absorb the information. As mentioned you will be learning phrases and words and these selections have been carefully chosen as ones you'll use on a regular daily basis. Additional features include being able to search and browse for a particular card at any time.
