A search on the word ‘languages’ in Google Playstore which provides apps for Android devices, gives 18,647 results. You can find apps from Arabic, Chinese and Czech to Russian, Serbian and Ukrainian. There are voice translator apps, dictionary and grammar apps and even languages in a month apps. A search on the iTunes App store under the Education category gives lower numbers but reveals many more when you search by language. The educational and technical merit of some apps probably leaves something to be desired but the benefits of being able to spend even a few minutes every day practising a language on an easily accessible device are obviously high.
