I usually start w ith the names of popular street food dishes a new country has to offer, but youmight find greater success interacting withnative speakers and delving into their literature. Whichever path you choose, you'll benefit inmore ways than one: re search has shown thatlearning an additional language helps stave off dementia and Alzheimer's, improves yourmultitasking skills and memory, and even makes you more effective in your native language!Getting started with a new language might seem daunting, but itdoesn't have to be: there are thousands of resources available forlanguage learners at every level available on the web, as well ascommunities to connect with fellow polyglots and learn together. Plus,I've got three wonderful apps to help you try your hand at a foreignlanguage, for free, in the comfort of your own couch, and it's as easy asplaying a mobile game! It's never too late to start, and these apps let you learn at your own pace. So what are you waiting for?Pronti? Attenti! Via!

Levels in Memrise are like flash cards - you're shown a word with its translation,followed by a couple more, and then asked to correctly recall the meaning of any of these words.Most courses include spoken words and Mems (funny pictures that act as mnemonics) to help you remember each word. To make things interesting, you can even choose courses based onmovies, comics and songs that you can check out before beginning the course, which includes words and phrases from the selected media. This adds context to your learning and helps youcreate stronger memories.The app also tracks when you last completed a level or course and will remind you to practice andstay sharp.

Apprehensive about French?Duolingo takes the stress out of learning a new language by turning the process into a game. Youstart with three lives per level, and have to get through each by successfully translating to andfrom your chosen language, pronouncing words and phrases correctly and transcribing shortsentences over roughly 20 rounds to a level. By going through various sections like Basics,Phrases, Food, Plurals, Adjectives and more, you'll begin to understand the language system without having to dissect it as you would in a classroom. When you're feeling confident about your grasp over the sections you've completed, you canpractice by taking on other language learners worldwide, or a bot in a timed language challengeto see who scores higher.Duolingo will periodically encourage you to test your skills, and you'll be rewarded with Lingotsthat you can use in the shop to buy a lost life or even bonus skills like useful idioms and pickuplines (because they're endearing when you're a foreigner - your mileage may vary!). You can alsoset goals for your chosen languages, so Duolingo will prod you to practice enough each day. And if you've got friends who are using the app, you can follow their progress on a leaderboard,and keep the competition alive by increasing your XP score daily. After a few weeks withDuolingo, you'll be comfortable reading, writing and pronouncing the basics of your chosenlanguage. All you need is a few minutes a day to practice! duolingo.com | Web, iOS and Android(Free) Practice with native speakers, with Hellotalk  It's no secret that Memrise is great for learning key phrases and improving your vocabulary, but itdoesn't do a lot for users' grammar and composition skills. It's perfect for use in conjunction witha professional language course, or for learning basic conversational language. The best way to getthe hang of a language is to practice speaking it often - and that's where HelloTalk comes in. Thishandy mobile app connects you to speakers of your chosen language from around the world sothat you can practice conversing with them by speaking or typing, just as you would with friendson a messaging app. And you don't have to worry about not being fluent in the language you'retraining in - HelloTalk includes tools to translate text to and from your native and chosenlanguages, pronounce typed text and even transcribe voice messages. All you need to do is indicate your chosen language and your skill level, and HelloTalk will let youlook up other speakers across the globe whom you can message and chat with.Even beginners can get in on the action - simply type in your native language, and use theTranslate tool before you send each message, and view translated responses too. Over time, you'll become more comfortable conversing in your chosen language. As for intermediate and advancedspeakers, there's simply no easier way to find language learners to practice with. Plus, you're bound to make a new friend or two in the process.hellotalk.com | Available on iOS and Android (Free) moremore Read|Commented|Shared  YOUR FRIENDS' ACTIVITY 1of5 FEATURED TODAY IN TECH It's pretty clear that Apple is winning the war withSamsungMicrosoft again sues Samsung over AndroidInfosys CEO Vishal Sikka: 7 things to know3 apps to learn a foreign languageFacebook suffers widespread outage, apologizesNeed to bring back confidence in Infosys: VishalSikkaMoto G helps Motorola beat Nokia in IndiaFormer Malaysian prime minister calls for internetcensorshipXiaomi Mi 3 vs Asus Zenfone 5 vs Huawei Honor 3CHP's new luxury smartwatch puts Moto 360 toshame TOP STORIES Bihar on alert as landslide in Nepal threatens KosidelugePM Narendra Modi arrives in Kathmandu on a two-day official visit to NepalKannada daily columnist held for inciting men torape activist through Facebook postCWG: Dipika, Joshna create history with gold medalRahul behind Sonia's refusal of PM post: ManiShankar  MOST POPULAR From Tech It's pretty clear that Apple is winning the war withSamsung Azhar AhmedReadSI files plaint of abuseagainst three youthsBharat Kumar DivvelaReadCentre looksto replicate Gujarat village model acrosscountryKrishna ChaitanyaReadSajid Khan: For me, the audience is king   » Read more Apps  You can learn a foreign language in your sleep, Swipsychologists say  8/4/20143 apps to learn a foreign language - The Times of Indiahttp://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/tech/apps/3-apps-to-learn-a-foreign-language/articleshow/39522714.cms?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=referral&utm_…3/6 ALSO ON TOI More from The Times of India 'Hurt' Speaker pulls up errant members inLok Sabha  09 Jul 2014 Kindergarten: The gateway to education 24 Jul 2014 Borsad girl wins International SpellingBee Championship  08 Jul 2014 Xiaomi Mi 3 review: Redefining value formoney   22 Jul 2014 Smartphones, apps reshaping the healthsector  28 Jul 2014 Startups in India streamline auto-rickshaw business  28 Jul 2014 From Around the Web Lovers of Great Content: How to Discover What to Read Next  Sphere  When It Comes To Promotions, Is MoreReally Better?
