Description

Selected into "New Apps We Love" by Apple in 100+ countries. Effortless visual way to learn Japanese, Chinese, Korean, French, Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic, German, Russian, Portuguese, Italian, Danish, Turkish, Swedish, Norwegian, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Esperanto and Hungarian vocabulary in just 5 minutes a day! Get addicted to learning! :) ----- Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning! Only 5 minutes a day: Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes! The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization. 100% Visual learning: Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the delicious pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently: you won’t have use the word of your native language but connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Quicker, better and more fun! :) Effortless practice: We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but 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 quick pace and keyboard typing 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 1700+ 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. Forge learning habit: Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it! I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :) p.s.: We take full responsibility for the potential addiction to learning. ----------------- Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!

    This app is good in my opinion it's really easy and fun but it's not too easy to where it's obvious and you don't feel like you're learning something.
  • Free version good but Worth the money to upgrade.

    If you want to learn Korean on your own then this is your app. It's helpful to google other resources for alphabet charts and explanations of how words are constructed. However the app by itself is very good. I did purchased the IAP (about $65) which unlocked all lessons. Otherwise you're restricted to 5min a day - which I found good enough for the casual student.
  • More fun than Duolingo right now

    So no, you're not building sentences as you would in Duolingo. But you are learning vocab that is more in depth in terms of available topics to study (ranging from vegetables to taking a spa day to Internet-related vocab to business vocab to managing money to forms of transportation, etc). On top of that, Drops just added a new feature where you can pick your path of study--it's not a one-size-fits-all approach where I have to go over tourist vocab again first (like most every other app/program will give you anyway) before I get to what I care about. This definitely makes Drops stand out from the pack in that regard (no more patiently drilling "hoteru" for the Japanese word for hotel before I get to new stuff). I can choose from the Tourist, Business, Enthusiast, or Romantic learning routes to tailor the order of what I learn. Plus the graphics of the app are very aesthetically pleasing, which also makes it enjoyable to use. Overall, this is a great adjunct to learning a language (increasing your vocab) though it will not and does not claim to teach you grammar. There are other apps for that. But for vocab, get this app; you won't regret it!

    I really like this app but the audio is mixed up for Swedish. The words are correct, but the pronunciation is a completely different word! Please fix this, it's a great app.
