The best apps for learning English

It is impossible to deny that English is a mandatory skill these days. And not just for travel, but also for a minimally interesting job. The sooner you start learning, the easier it will be to learn. And I don't even have to spend a lot of money on it.

It is not possible to learn a new language without effort and time, and you can count on some tools on Google Play. We have prepared a selection of the best English-language apps through exercises in video, images, audio and even dictionaries. Check it out below.


Duolingo is the most famous and fun of English learning apps, with user-friendly interface and logical exercise-based learning. Its main highlight is working with gamification, transforming learning into a game where you win medals and progress.

You can set daily goals and set reminders to do your daily exercises by competing with your friends. The points you earn can be spent on game upgrades and costumes for the likeable owl that the app mascot. All the free content, and there are lessons in completing, writing and training in microphone pronunciation. The paid version removes ads, lets you download lessons and bonuses for the game.

Duolingo reigned outright for some time, but the Memrise sensation has gained more and more users, and is as popular as the screech owl. It also has a gamification scheme, but it has a more serious look and its exercises blend well with learning so you get the words and phrases faster.

It brings exercises of multiple choice, listening, writing and proofreading. It greatly stimulates the memorization of words.
