Learn Spanish For Beginners

Spanish Language Content

Review date: March 9, 2016

Learn Spanish for Beginners is from the same developer as Spanish Vocabulary with Pictures. This app has more vocabulary, different quiz styles and more sentences and phrases.

VOCABULARY

There are 26 categories of vocabulary with a good variety of words and phrases. The vocabulary is presented in 2 different formats:

  • Study List has the English and Spanish vocabulary with audio for each.
  • Slideshow presents the same vocabulary and repeats the English and Spanish 3 times before moving to the next slide.

Score: 6/10

QUIZZES

The quizzes are presented in 4 different multiple choice formats. You can choose written questions in either English or Spanish or audio questions in either English or Spanish. You can't move on to the next question until you answer correctly.

Score: 5/10

SENTENCES

The audio categories do have some sentences and phrases throughout some of them.

Score: 3/10

GRAMMAR

There is one section that leads to grammatical information. There are a couple of issues however. The grammar information are links that open PDF documents so the grammar is not actually in the app. The PDF documents are also presented in a horrendous format with a script font that is hard to read and are written in an wordy essay-type format which makes them hard to follow.

Score: 1/10

VERBS

The app does not contain any verb conjugation information.

Score: 0/10

App Design

An app also needs to be attractive and function well in order to encourage its use and bring students back to app time and time again. The app should be a Windows 10 universal app that works across Windows 10 devices and screen sizes. Navigation should be intuitive and easy. Paid apps should have a free trial.

WINDOWS 10 UNIVERSAL APP

This app is a Windows 8 app which works on Windows 10.

Verdict

DOWNLOAD IT! OR SKIP IT!

The app has sufficient vocabulary and includes sentences and some grammatical information. We like the range of information presented but really dislike the design. If you can look past the design, which is hard to do, you may want to download this one but we can't overlook the design.
