Many of us now spend much more time at home trying to find productive things to do. Another way to be successful is by learning a new language. Mastering lessons in a foreign language and developing your vocabulary with these free apps is especially helpful as you will always have them at your disposal. Lie on your sofa, download these games.

Note: Some apps mentioned below are also available in web browsers.


Duolingo is the most famous language-learning software with over 30 languages in its catalogue. Using it's really quick. Using text, images, and audio to help you learn a different language.

Every segment you complete takes you to more difficult tasks like working on your vocabulary and sentence structure.


Lingualift is a subscription-based device that gives you access to the languages they offer. They offer classes in Japanese, Russian, and Hebrew. It'll soon add French, Spanish and Chinese to its future updates.

This is a language app based more on serious learners who want a full language program with digitally driven tutor.

Perfect for users who aren’t tech-savvy, the app has a user-friendly interface. Words are put into sentences and it shows short videos to show how real locals express different phrases in conversation.
What I like about this is it offers offline courses. So if you are running out of data, you can still use it.

Drops software is enjoyable and has a vibrant layout. If you're in visuals, it's great for you. Drops lessons teach words and phrases by combining pictures with term and vice versa.

The software lets you talk easily through immersive dialogs and speech recognition technology. Yet his language repertoire isn't as wide and comprehensive as Duolingo's, since most of the languages he supports are European.
