Knowing foreign languages is an essential skill that is needed for communication between people. Apps for language learners are very useful for learning English and other languages because they can help you to learn in an interesting way. Language learning apps not only can help you to better understand the structure of the language that you are learning. They can also help you to learn about the culture of the language. 

There are many different apps for language teachers, but I will discuss 5 most popular apps that are good for iOS.

Top 5 iOS Language Learning Apps

1. Duolingo


The first app is called Duolingo. Duolingo is an app that is available for free. This app is useful for learning a language because it has a very interesting system for learning. The system is based on the idea that it is better to learn small amounts of information regularly. It’s called spaced repetition. Spaced repetition is the idea that you need to learn things many times until you know it well. 

Duolingo is an adaptive app. This means that the app can change depending on what you have learned before. This app is useful for learning a language because it rewards you for learning things well. It gives you points for learning things. Also, it encourages you to learn new things by giving you extra points. So far this is my favorite language learning app.

2. HelloTalk
