    Thanks for the nice article. I would like to suggest another great free language learning app called “50 languages”. Special about this non-Profit project is that you can learn every language in every language. This puts the focus on people that don’t speak common languages as English, Spanish or French but want to learn a new language – e.g. people from Africa or Asia.
