Fast English Learning app

Learning a language is one of the most rewarding things you can do. There are a lot of ways you can learn or improve your skills in a particular language, from attending classes to self-learning.

But have you realized that you can also put that smartphone of yours to really good use for learning languages?

Whether you’re starting from scratch or just want to improve your English, here are 10 free mobile apps for both Android and iOS that will help you do just that.

This is my first recommendation for anyone looking to improve their English. Hello, English covers all the aspects of language learning, including vocabulary, translation, grammar, spellings, spoken, and reading skills.

However, you should already be able to understand basic English structure and alphabets, the app can’t help you learn English from scratch.

When you’ll first launch the app, you’ll have to select your native language to continue.

There are 22 languages supported, and make sure you choose the right one as the app will work in your native language from here.

select your native language
Afterward, you’ll be given a 20 questions test that the app will use to assess your current English level.

According to the test results, you’ll be recommended lessons that will work best for you.

For example, when I did a perfect score on the test, the app recommended me to start from lesson 351. Although, when I did very poorly on the test, the app recommended me to start from lesson 1.

20 questions test
Hello, English uses interactive games to teach different English lessons, and you’ll earn coins to unlock more difficult lessons.

I can confirm that even experts can find some good lessons to sharpen their English. When I took some advanced tests, I was only able to keep 85% average score.

For practice, the app also offers new audiobooks, latest news, and books to keep enhancing your English language.

Hello, English is free and ad-supported, but there is also a premium version to remove ads and unlock special courses for a particular purpose.

Hello English interface

If you want to learn English from scratch, then this is the app you are looking for. Duolingo uses interactive games to help you learn up to 23 different languages, including English.

For beginners, the app focuses on helping you learn verbs, phrases, and sentences.

Although advanced users can also improve their language by completing the writing, speaking, and vocabulary lessons.

You’ll have to choose the language you want to learn and your native language to start the learning process.

Afterward, you can confirm whether you want to learn the language from scratch or you just want to improve.

Depending on your selection, the app will make you go through a simple test.

This test will help understand your proficiency in the language and Duolingo will provide learning material accordingly.

I was pleasantly surprised at the teaching strategy of the app.

If you’ll make a mistake, the app will immediately use a different game to help you learn and correct it.

Both Duolingo and Hello English can help you learn English and improve it. However, when you are ready to practice your spoken skills in the real world, you’ll need Lingle.

It’s a community-based app where people help each other and share their native language. It connects you with real people on the call that are native in the language you are looking to learn.

Lingle has a language exchange system. To get talking minutes to learn a foreign language, you’ll have to first talk with someone in your native language and help them learn it.

So it’s basically a give and takes app where you are both the teacher and the learner. Overall, it’s a fun way to make friends, learn cultures, and learn a new language.

Although there are many apps like Lingle that connect with native speakers, I have selected it for its extremely simple user interface and rules.

You just need to select your native language and the language you want to learn and then tell a little about your interests.

This information will not be visible to other users, it will only be used to connect you with the right user on call.

Lingle initial setup

The main interface only consists of a button to start a call, and a button to confirm you are available or unavailable to receive calls.

After your call, you can Like the person in the app to connect with them later. If they like you back, then they will appear in your Chats section as a friend.

Lingle Interface

With the language exchange model, I have explained above, you can use Lingle for free. However, you can also purchase Lingbe coins to buy minutes to talk to native speakers of the language you want to practice.

There are many free audiobooks to hone your English skills, but some are paid.

HelloTalk is similar to Lingle as it connects you with native speakers to help improve your language skills.

However, it adds a few extra features that might interest you. You can view the profiles of users manually to find a match that interests you.

Additionally, you can also send text and audio messages, and even do video calls with other people.

Google’s app helps you hear better in noisy areas

One of the great and newer accessibility features on Android is Sound Amplifier, which basically turns your phone into a hearing aid with the help of a pair of headphones and a couple of frequency cut-off faders to isolate the sounds you want to hear.

Now, in its first major update, the applet is becoming available to people who aren’t just using Android 9 Pie devices and is also getting a visual refresh in the process.

Google has announced that Sound Amplifier will now be available to use on all devices with Android 6.0 Marshmallow or later.

It was able to improve the efficiency of the noise reduction process by machine-training its algorithms on thousands of audio samples used in hearing studies and published sources, making the feature accessible to people on older versions.

The company has also taken in feedback from users who wanted more concrete indications of how they were boosting or reducing what they were hearing and has brought real-time audio visualization right in the center of the app.

Also new in this update is the ability to adjust frequencies for each individual ear — because hearing impairments don’t affect people in the same way.

You can grab Sound Amplifier version 2.0 from the Play Store or APK Mirror. If you have a Pixel 3 or 3a series device, make sure to get this update and turn on the feature in the Accessibility settings of your device.

To start using Sound Amplifier, plug in wired headphones (required) then go to Settings > Accessibility > Sound Amplifier.

Sound Amplifier enhances audio from your Android device using headphones to provide a more comfortable and natural listening experience.

Use Sound Amplifier on your Android device to filter, augment, and amplify sound in the real world. Sound Amplifier makes audio clearer and easier to hear.

It works by increasing quiet sounds while not over-boosting loud sounds. With 2 simple sliders, you can quickly customize sound enhancement and noise reduction to minimize distracting background noise.

Features
• Boost quiet and reduce loud sounds around you and on your device.
• Carry on conversations in loud environments.
• Personalize your listening experience by adjusting audio or microphone settings with the simple tuning UI.
• Reduce unwanted or distracting noises.

Once you’ve tuned Sound Amplifier to a setting you like, you can toggle it on and off using the Accessibility Button.

Permissions Notice
• Phone: Needed to know the phone state to pause Sound Amplifier when there’s an incoming or outgoing call.
• Microphone: Needed for real-time audio processing.
