5 Free Language Learning Apps for the Culture-Obsessed Traveler

5 Free Language Learning Apps for the Culture-Obsessed Traveler | Italia Mia |

The purpose of language learning apps is more than translation. Their lessons are centered around conversational skills and building vocabulary, although some may focus more on one than the other. Since each individual learns languages differently and no app can compare to gaining fluency through real life interactions, users should browse for a program that works best for them. There is a variety to choose from, most attempt to cater to a variety of language learning needs.

Nice list of apps. Some of them can help improving oral skill, although they weren't specifically developed to do so.
