If you’re new to language learning, you’ve never heard of one or more of the above apps, or you want to know which app would be best for you, consult the guide below.


DUOLINGO: Quality above Quantity

Pros:
⭕ Clean Interface
⭕ Totally free
⭕ You feel fine when you see an Ad because of how free everything is
⭕ Premium is available and takes away Ads and makes offline courses available for a price
⭕ Speech in some courses
⭕ You can join a club of people, or make your own with your friends
⭕ Streak Saver for if you are too busy to practice but still want to keep a streak
⭕ Good for learning the basics of a language for school
⭕ Good for learning the basics of a language for work
⭕ Very Good as a starting point
⭕ Tips & Notes (Helps with grammar) can be really helpful
⭕ You can contribute to making a course as long as you speak both languages involved
⭕ Forums
⭕ Reminder Notifications
⭕Tinycards (A flashcard app made by Duolingo) is FINALLY ON ANDROID IT IS TIME TO P A R T Y ⭕ I hear Chatbots are good (BUT I WOULDN’T KNOW BECAUSE IT’S NOT ON ANDROID DANGET)

Cons:

🔴 Tips & Notes is only on the Website
🔴 Takes a long while for courses because they’re made by contributors
🔴 When a course is quicker than usual it’s usually because Duolingo pushed the contributors to make it and it ends up slightly half-assed
🔴 Duolingo accepts languages based on their demand, so lesser-known languages aren’t accepted
🔴 Can’t delete courses through the mobile site
🔴 Chatbots (An AI that talks to you in your target language made by Duolingo) is only available on iOS
🔴 If they release a date for something to be out, it’s usually released a lot later than that (TinyCards was due on Android a month or so after it was released on iOS, it finally came out in September 2017)

All in all, if you’re a student, new to languages, or need to learn a language for work; this is the app for you.

If you’re wanting to expand your vocabulary (outside of casual phrases), you’re intermediate in your target language, or you want to learn grammar; this app isn’t for you.


MEMRISE: Quantity over Quality

Pros:
⭕ Memrise-made courses
⭕ A lot of courses available
⭕ Not just for Languages
⭕ Usually at least 200 words in each Memrise-made course
⭕ A lot of languages available if you don’t care about the quality
⭕ The most words I’ve seen in a course is 2750
⭕ Good for expanding your vocabulary
⭕ Good for starting out
⭕ Many lesser-known languages
⭕ Reminder Notifications (Report for training, Dojo!)
⭕ Space themed
⭕ Some community made courses are really good.
⭕ Sound in the Memrise-made courses, sometimes sound in the community made courses
⭕ Anyone can make a course about pretty much anything
⭕ Mems (Pictures to help you remember the word)
⭕ No Ads
⭕ Premium is available and adds courses like Difficult Words (Helps with words you’ve had the most difficulty with), Listening Skills (Helps with listening skills) and Meet the Natives (Videos of native speakers), Chat with AIs in your target language (Only available on some courses), Offline courses, and Grammar bot that helps with grammar (Only available on some courses) for a price
⭕ Okay without Premium
⭕ Good for students and workers
⭕ As long as you know your target languages grammar, you’re set on a Standard account
⭕ Teaches the alphabet along with vocabulary
⭕ Forums

Cons:

🔴 Prices are expensive for people who are broke or can’t pay the $129.99 lifetime fee.
🔴 Not a very clean interface (imo)
🔴 Some people think it’s on the way out
🔴 Some community Courses aren’t that good
🔴 the ratio of Memrise Courses to Community Courses is probably 1:300
🔴 No grammar unless you get premium
🔴 (imo) They try too hard to beat out Duolingo. Instead of adding Grammar, Tips, or Comments (On mobile, idk about website) they add interface updates and change things about the home screen.

All in all, if you’re starting out, want to learn more vocabulary, or you have to learn for school or work; this app is for you.

If you want to learn grammar, need help from others often, or you don’t want a very technical app; this app isn’t for you.

Pretty much if Duolingo and Memrise were computers, Memrise would be PC and Duolingo would be Mac.


Mango Languages: Need to learn grammar? I gotchu fam

I don’t know much about Mango Languages because I only got it recently.
From what I’ve seen by answering 2 whole questions on the Android app, this is what I concur.

Pros:
⭕ It highlights each word so you know which is which
⭕ Good for practicing speech
⭕ Teaches Grammar (!!!!!!)
⭕ No Ads
⭕ Many languages
⭕ I think they all have sound
⭕ Special Chapters teach special things depending on the language (i.e. Zodiac chapter for Chinese course etc.)
⭕ Teaches phrases (I wouldn’t like this if it wasn’t for the fact they teach grammar)
⭕ Clean interface
⭕ Seems to be mainly for conversational language.
⭕ Lady narrates everything so you can follow along easily

Cons:
🔴 Your local library pays for a subscription to Mango Languages, which will unlock the website/app for you. This is really bad, because if you live in a small town, or even live in a big town that doesn’t have subscriptions; you have to pay to unlock the site.
🔴 Doesn’t teach alphabets
🔴 Not a ‘press this button if you think the answer is this’ kind of app. You just go through slides and speak into the app and it tells you if you’re right or not.

All in all, if you want to learn grammar, the skeleton of the language, have another source for learning alphabets, and you have a good library; this app is for you.

If you want to widen your vocabulary, you have a sucky library, no money, and you’re only going to be using this app by itself; this app isn’t for you.


IMO, it’s best to get all 3.
With Duolingo helping you with basics, Memrise helping your vocabulary and Mango helping with grammar, you’re set.

fin da quando eravamo piccoli, avevo la sensazione di fluttuare fuori dal mio io e di guardarmi dall'alto. Odio quello che vedo, come mi relaziono e tutto quello che dico, e non so come correggerlo. Ho paura che questa sensazione non andrà mai più via.

A noi ci ho creduto

Certe volte vorrei solo scriverti un misero “hey”,per farti sentire che ci sono. Anche se forse non mi vuoi più,io ci sono. Anche se forse mi hai rimpiazzato,io ci sono. Sono sempre qui così come ci sono sempre stata. Sono quella che ti ha dato conforto quando ne hai avuto bisogno,quella che ti ha sostenuto nei momenti di ansia,quella che ti ha fatto sorridere come non mai con quelle sue battute strane. Sono quella che hai salutato per prima quando sei arrivato in un nuovo Paese. Sono quella che ci teneva così tanto a te da dedicarti messaggi chilometrici nei quali ti ringraziava d'esistere. Ma sono anche quella che,lo ammetto,si è presa una cotta per te. Tra noi non ci sarebbe comunque stato nulla,quindi non te l'ho mai detto. Mi sono tenuta tutto dentro,non a torto. Non ti ho detto nulla anche quando,non credo ti ricorderai, ho tremato dopo un tuo bacio sulla guancia. Mi piaceva il tuo modo di essere. Mi piacevi tu. E le tue fisse. Ma non era destino,quindi non ci avevo nemmeno provato a dirtelo. Tutto andava bene,anche se io certe volte morivo dentro. Specialmente quando ti ho visto con quella ragazza. Non ce l'ho fatta e me ne sono andata da lì. Ma poi sono tornata in quella stanza. Sorridevo come non mai,ma dentro soffocavo. Ma ce l'ho fatta,ho superato anche quello. Tutto andava bene,tu eri lo stesso. E io ero felice. Poi sei diventato distante,non mi volevi sentire,non mi cercavi. Allora ti cercavo io. Avevo bisogno di sentirti. Ma tu rispondevi a monosillabi,quasi la mia presenza ti stesse dando fastidio. Allora ho smesso di scriverti. Temevo di disturbarti. Non so se ho fatto bene o se ho fatto male,ma l'ho fatto. Non so se leggerai mai questo mio post e non so se ti ci ritroverai,ma sappi che ti ho amato come non ho mai amato nessuno. Ti ho amato come il mare ama le sue creature,come la terra i suoi fiori,come il vento ama la terra. Ti ho amato e,lo ammetto,sono impazzita per te. Ho sofferto per te,ma non ho pianto. Ti ho insultato anche se non lo meritavi,per dimostrarmi agli occhi altrui forte. Ti ho anche ignorato per far vedere che non mi fregava più niente di te. Ma non era e non sarà mai così. Tu ci sei sempre stato e io ci sono sempre stata. Eravamo una squadra. E forse lo siamo ancora. Per te eravamo solo amici,ma io ti ho amato. Non te l'ho mai detto e credo che mai lo saprai. Ma ti ringrazio comunque per esserci stato,per avermi aiutato,per avermi sostenuto,per avermi dedicato quelle frasi. Ti ringrazio per essere entrato nella mia vita così,come un uragano a ciel sereno. Ti ringrazio d'esistere.

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame || God Help the Outcasts || Italian lyrics + English translation

Io non so se puoi sentirmi
I don’t know if You can hear me
Neppure se ci sei
Or if You’re even there
Né se ti soffermeresti
Nor if You’d pay much attention
Sui pensieri miei
To my thoughts
So che sono una gitana
I know I am a gypsy
E non oserei di più
And I wouldn’t dare do more
Che pregare intensamente
Than praying intensely
Per la gente come me
For people like me

Dio, fa’ qualcosa per quelli che
God, do something for those who
Un gesto d'amore non sanno cos'è
Don’t know what an act of love is
Dio, questa gente confida in Te
God, these people trust in You
E solo il Tuo amore salvarli potrà
And Your love only will be able to save them

Vorrei di più di ciò che ho
I wish for more than what I have
Vorrei per sempre la gloria e l'onor
I wish for eternal glory and honor
Vorrei l'amor, gioia nel cuor
I wish for love, for joy in my heart
Che Dio mi aiuti ogni giorno per sempre
May God help me every day, forever

Grazie per quanto possiedo già
Thank You for what I already own
Lo so, non è tanto, ma a me basterà
It isn’t much, I know, but it will do for me
Prego per gli altri, fuori di qua
I pray for the others who are outside
Falli sentire i figli di Dio
Make them feel like the children of God
Sono indifesi, ma figli di Dio
They are helpless, but children of God
