This might sound crazy but it works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming, but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the obstacles standing in your way of finally starting to learn that new language are made obsolete.. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes! The time limit encourages intense focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization. 100% visual learning: Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the gorgeous pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently. You won’t have use the word of your native language, but instead, connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Faster, better and more fun! :) Effortless practice: We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive, then and integrated those elements into Drops to create an app that is incredibly immersive. But unlike other games, in this case, you don’t waste your time playing. Instead you build a valuable asset--knowledge of a new language. Swipe-based: We believe in fast-paced, intuitive learning, and typing on your phone’s keyboard is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes. ;) Strategic vocabulary selection: The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 2600+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken. ----------------- Keep tuned as even more languages are in the works!

  • Love it, but it’s not perfect yet

    My mother is from Iceland and even though she has lived in the US for a long time she still speaks the language fluently. She has always been a very hard working mom so never really had time to teach me or my sister how to speak Icelandic. I have always wanted to learn, so I could communicate better when I am visiting Iceland, but growing up in California, I discovered that there is a serious lack of Icelandic language resources. Now that Iceland has become such a popular tourist destination it’s surprisingly still not easy to find Icelandic lessons. Even on the World Wide Web, where you would think you would be able to find anything! So needless to say, I was thrilled to discover the Drops app because first of all - it offers ICELANDIC! There are so many language apps out there, and few have this particular language as an option. I actually can’t think of a single other app that does. I’ve been very impressed with the authentic voices and accurate pronunciation of words, as well as how many different categories there are. The app makes Icelandic FUN to learn instead of a chore. It feels modern and true to current life instead of old, outdated and hard to use, like some resources I have tried before. The only problems I’ve had are that sometimes the illustrations are the same for different words. For example, “it’s raining” and “rain.” They are slightly different but essentially the same image, so hard to tell apart. Sometimes there are two different words for the same thing as well, like “hot dog” or “sausage.” So I have answered incorrectly a couple times because there were two of the same or similar image showing, but only one image was the correct choice. I would suggest Drops should work on making the illustrations easier to differentiate and do not use the same ones for different words. I would also LOVE some grammar instead of just vocabulary. But otherwise, very very happy with this app!!! I’m finally learning Icelandic!!!

    App is good style however the language meanings are wrong. I was learning Chinese through the app was easy and I was retaining the language. However when I shared the information with someone I know from China. It was explained the the writing was right but the meaning of that word was wrong. The pronunciation of word also had errors. I started googling the words and sure of enough this is wrong. So this app for Chinese is a waste of time and money and I subscribed for a year. I wish they would correct this issue because I do love the style.
  • Great

    Love the game environment and the time limit. I can take a 5 min break from my routine and learn a language without it feeling burdensome. Great way to increase your vocabulary.
