5 Great Apps for Learning Spanish

Continuing my journey in learning Spanish (Week Six), I have decided to explore some more of the apps that are offered for my learning project. I have created a list of some of the apps that I thought were the best for learning Spanish at a beginner level.

1.Rosetta Stone


Description: This clean and organized app takes you through lessons with lots of images and voices. Each lesson is about 10 minutes long, but helps build your basic phrases and vocabulary! However, the app does expect you to have some knowledge of some Spanish before the first lesson.

Price: As far as I can see, everything is free!


2. Bussuu


Description: This is such a great app. They test you at the beginning to see where your skill level is at and then start you at a specific level. Everything is relevant and fun, and each level includes vocabulary, dialogue, a quiz, and conversations. I highly recommend this app!

Price: Every lesson is free, but you can also get premium for $6.67/month with a yearly contract.


3. Duolingo


Description: We can’t forget about Duolingo. This app and website are amazing for learning so many languages. With lessons full of images and voices, this well-organized app has helped me learn the basics of Spanish in just a few weeks. Highly recommended for beginners!

Price: Free! You can also get Duolingo Plus for $7.99 with a 6 month contract that will eliminate ads and allow unlimited lessons on your phone (they are already unlimited on your computer).


4. Learn Spanish

Description: This app is a fantastic travelling tool! Although it does not offer lessons, this app provides all of the phrases and words that you may need while travelling. You can access these terms either by listening to them or reading them.

Price: The first seven categories are free, and the rest of the categories require premium for $6.99/month.



5. Mondly

Description: This fun app lets you learn Spanish through lessons or conversations (see below)! What I specifically enjoy about this app is that each word can be clicked on to display all of the various options for that one word (see above). This way, you will not be confused by the many options for words in the Spanish language!

Price: The first three categories are free, and the rest of the categories require premium for $3.99/month with a yearly contract.

  1. Hi Shaelyn!

    I love how you have provided different types of learning with Spanish! I remember learning Spanish in High School and having some difficulties with it! You are doing an excellent job at your learning project and I am excited to see your progress!

  2. Hi Shaelyn,
    This is such a great exploration of the good apps you’ve explored, I’m also very impressed that you have explored and utilized so many.
    I am just curious how you found a free version of Rosetta Stone. In the past when I’ve looked at it for learning a language it appeared very pricy with monthly and yearly subscriptions https://www.rosettastone.com/learn-spanish/
    But of course if you found a work around, that’s awesome!


  3. I like how you have been exploring into different apps, that is great to see! I have tried a few of these for learning French and I have encountered that a lot of them require payments, which sucks! It is interesting that for you, you are having luck with free apps. Which has been your favourite so far? What do you find you struggle the most with when learning a new language?
