Apps Edit

App Pros Cons Notes
Duolingo
  • A good place to start and learn your first few 100-1000 words and get a feel for the language
  • Gets boring and repetitive quickly
  • Too many ads on mobile versions
LingQ
  • Has a very good import feature both on the website, and as a browser extension. You can import webpages, pdfs, epubs, and upload audio as well.
  • Useful tool to get you reading and listening to engaging content
  • $10 USD per month
  • User generated content is difficult to navigate. It is difficult to navigate your own content as well.
  • Free alternatives like LWT available
  • Not really a pro or a con, but it is so easy to translate text using LingQ that you can fall into a trap of over-translating and not trying to decipher a word or phrase based on context which can hinder your progress.
  • You can achieve a similar experience without having to import or upload anything by using a translation extension in your browser. See: Simple Translate , Google Translate
