Apps Edit

Duolingo Edit

Pros:

  1. A good place to start learning your first 1000-2000 words

Cons:

  1. Can be very boring
  2. Too many ads on mobile versions

Other:

LingQ Edit

Pros:

  1. Has a very good import feature both on the website, and as a browser extension. You can import webpages, pdfs, epubs, and upload audio as well.
  2. Useful tool to get you reading and listening to engaging content

Cons:

  1. $10 USD per month
  2. User generated content is difficult to navigate. It is difficult to navigate your own content as well.
  3. Free alternatives like LWT available

Other:

  1. Not really a pro or a con, but it is so easy to translate text using LingQ that you can fall into a trap of over-translating and not trying to decipher a word or phrase based on context which can hinder your progress.
  2. You can achieve a similar experience without having to import or upload anything by using a translation extension in your browser. See: Simple Translate , Google Translate
