Language learning apps for Android
Top 5 language learning apps for Android
From our earliest moments in this world we begin to communicate. At first nothing more intelligible than loud screaming and crying, but communicating nonetheless. It is through our growth and learning that we begin to learn how to utter words, use body language and speak without speaking.
Learning a new language is one of those things that just about everyone in this world sets out to do at one time or another, but is one task that has proven to be a lot more difficult as we get older. However, as we have gotten older technology has improved, up until the point where it is now possible for us to start learning a new language without having to go to school! This has all been made possible by the almighty smartphone.

3) Mango Languages
Mango Languages gives users access to over 60 foreign-language courses and 17 English courses taught in the native language of the user. Mango strives to teach language students the four key conversational components for successful communication, which according to the app is vocabulary, pronounciation, grammar and culture. As a language learner myself, I have to say that the culture of any given region is deeply embedded in any language, so learning more about that definitely helps you to understand the language and people better and the subtle nuances that each one presents.
