If you’ve tried to learn Spanish years ago and got stuck at hola, you should reconsider Spanish lessons with Rosetta Stone. Today’s language learning apps are gamified experiences, but all those bells and whistles should be approached with some caution. Many learn Spanish apps focus on vocabulary games that appear to encourage engagement but don’t actually result in building confidence in speaking the language. After all, knowing ¿Qué tal? is great, but if you aren’t sure which situations it’s appropriate to use the informal greeting or how to pronounce it, it’s not helpful in a real-world conversation.
Rosetta Stone understands that the key to speaking Spanish is about learning the language, not just the words. The backbone of our Spanish lessons is a unique approach of teaching words in context, scaling up to concepts in learning environments rich with audio and visual cues that mirror everyday situations.
Rosetta Stone’s Learn Languages app delivers contextualized learning alongside customization options and technologically advanced features. As a user of our learn Spanish app, you benefit both from activities powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning as well as a proven instructional method built on 25+ years of language learning experience.
What Are the Best Apps for Learning Spanish?
Spanish is the second most widely-spoken language in the world, so learning Spanish is a skill that will serve you well. With more than 400 million speakers , Spanish is the native tongue in 20 different countries, concentrated in Central and South America. However, since 40 million Spanish speakers reside in the United States, speaking Spanish is something Americans will get plenty of mileage out of both at home and abroad.
If you’ve been looking for an app to help you learn Spanish, it can be tempting to stick to something that’ll deliver the basics quickly. However, cramming your head full of memorized vocabulary is one of the least effective ways to learn a language. The best learn Spanish apps not only teach you basic phrases like ¿Cómo estás?, but the nuances of when to use the greeting and how to pronounce it.
Rosetta Stone’s award-winning app delivers feedback in every Spanish lesson with a speech-recognition engine called TruAccent. Advanced voice-recognition technology analyzes your Spanish accent and encourages you to correct your pronunciation before moving on to the next lesson. The goal of our learn Spanish app is simple—to teach you to say Spanish words like ¡salud! and así así so well you’ll get confused for a local.
