Review Learn 50 languages

Brandon Girod
Features 50 different languages, has tons of ways to learn
Learning style isn't intuitive, relies too much on the user
Learning a new language is not an easy task, and the way you learn is pretty much the most important part about learning a new language. If the resource you use is bad then you'll likely give up and never achieve your goal. Learn 50 Languages for Android is an app that believes it can help you learn 50 different languages, but can it actually succeed?
If you've used something like Duolingo before then you'll notice that the two apps take two drastically different approaches to teaching language. Duolingo takes a very hands-on approach and tailors every lesson for you, but this app actually gives you free reign to learn each language however you want. Now if you're a good self-starter then that might work out fine for you, but for everyone else it's less than ideal.
Learning vocabulary is cumbersome. You can select from a list of categories and then choose how you want to study the vocabulary. Vocabulary words are basically just presented in a list with a photo and translation of each word. It's not what I could call effective, and words aren't organized in any logical order.
There are a few poorly coded games that you can also play, though they mostly consist of matching words together in various ways like by category or opposites. Grammar is also not present in this application, so you'd never understand the difference between why you would use 'vamos' in one instance and 'vamanos' in another.
Basically, what I'm trying to say is this game takes a very lazy, textbook approach to teaching language. It's not what I would call intuitive and puts way too much responsibility on the user. That may seem like I'm giving an excuse but I'm not. Apps like Duolingo have a much more effective way of teaching usable language than just handing someone a list of vocabulary words. Do yourself a favor and take a pass on this one.
