Learn Spanish 6000 Words App Now Comes With 'Unlock All Level' Option

Learn Spanish 6000 Words App Now Comes With 'Unlock All Level' Option | ePick & Mix | Scoop.it
Known to be one of the global leaders in developing e-learning tools, Fun Easy Learn has recently announced that they have added 'Unlock All Level' option to Learn Spanish 6000 Words App.
The 'Unlock All Level' feature was designed to avoid third-party advertisements that irritate users often. According to the software developer, the application has a lot of users now which is evident on the total number of downloads and active users. However, feedbacks revealed that there are those who are 'unhappy' seeing third-party advertisements.
Like Us on Facebook
With the new option, learning Spanish will be much easier as users can now access the learning materials without seeing third-party advertisements.
"Spanish language is one of the most difficult languages to learn. Many people take interest in it, but it is more difficult for Asian learners," said Fun Easy Learn in a press release. "Studies show that Spanish language learning is quite a challenging job for non-Europeans. Our app makes Spanish learning really easy with intelligent use of images. The App is interactive and users can use their spare time to learn Spanish words, phrases, idioms etc."
Described as simple, intuitively and elegantly designed, the application is available for free in Google Play Store. The company said that all the 6000 words are carefully selected in order to help users learn Spanish better. The application has 140 topics that users can view to learn more.
The application comes with three (3) levels - for beginners, intermediate learners, and advanced students. For the Beginner level there are 1,000 words of vocabulary, the Intermediate level has 2,000 words, and the Advanced level has 3,000 words. All these words are also translated in different languages like English, Turkish, Korean, Russian, German, Arabic, Chinese, Thai, Ukrainian, Portuguese, French, Polish, Italian, Romanian, Japanese, Hindi, and more.
To be able to use the unlock feature, users of the Learn Spanish 6000 Words app will have to pay to instantly unlock all levels or say 'no' to all sorts of third-party ads.
