Impress Yourself and Others

The Learn Spanish app makes it possible to learn a whole new language without stress and in a relatively quick amount of time. The app uses the Intelligent Cumulative Exposure technique which is a new one. It uses the belief that the best way to learn a new language is in small increments learning one concept at a time so you don't overload your brain. The app will teach you how to create sentences right from the ground and upwards teaching your brain to think in this other language as you form the sentence.

Not the Typical Approach

Unlike so many other language based apps this one doesn't just throw you into the deep end of the pool and expect you to pick up on the language. You are never left floundering because things are taken in small comprehensive steps instead. The app actually has so much information in it that it is equal to two years of high school-level Spanish classes. That's pretty impressive for a mobile app. You'll start out as a beginner and by the time you finish with the app you'll be at a conversational level.

The app features more than 6,000 audio flashcards that cover Spanish phrases, words, and sentence construction. Verb conjugations and grammatical rules can be pretty hard to understand, which is why they are explained in simple terms through the app. You constantly get feedback in the form of statistics and you can always make use of the search tool to find a specific word or phrase.
