Best apps for learning Spanish

Gone are the days of writing hundreds of flashcards to help memorize Spanish verbs. Instead, download the following apps we mention below. While attending language classes is important in helping you improve your grasp of Spanish and acclimatise to your new country, there are some more relaxed ways you can build your skills outside of the classroom.

1. Duolingo

Among all the apps here, Duolingo probably has the highest ratings of all – it won the Best App Award in 2013 in both the AppStore and the Google Play Store.

Duolingo Spanish is split up into units that have a certain theme (e.g. education, work, medicine), and it’s designed so that each unit goes up in difficulty. 

2. Memrise


Memrise is a very unique language learning app. Unlike other apps, its sole purpose is to help you memorize Spanish words, hence the name “Memrise”. And in my opinion, it’s also one of the most creative iOS Spanish apps for learning Spanish words around.

3. FluentU

FluentU is an app and website that’s very different from traditional ways of language learning. They take real life videos, movie trailers, and speeches and put subtitles on them which you can interact with by clicking on the word in order to see the direct translation. It’s a great app for Spanish immersion, very easy to use, and you can dedicate as much time per lesson as you like.

4. Gritty Spanish 

Ever listened to a conversation in the street and wondered, “what the heck are they talking about?“. Gritty Spanish will get you more than a few steps closer to understanding Spanish used in the street. Gritty Spanish is all about listening, reading and learning Spanish through super entertaining and engaging stories.
