An App That Gives You Feedback

Yes, there's an app for that. Babbel makes one of the best on the market for learning a foreign language. Babbel Mobile apps provide portable, situational travel instruction in seven languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, and Portuguese. Integrated speech recognition technology allows you to assess your pronunciation skills, and the intelligent review manager provides you with feedback on weak areas in your vocabulary—and provides targeted exercises. And, because the vocabulary is arranged by category, you can focus on the lessons you want, such as the vocabulary of travel and business.
