Stop press: Swedish now joins the growing list of languages served by Geoglot’s free Verb Blitz range for Android devices!
Doubling as a handy reference tool as well as a powerful drill system, the app contains over 130 regular and irregular verbs in Swedish. Browse, practise and perfect your grammatical knowledge, at the same time as expanding your core vocabulary in the language.
As always, Verb Blitz for Android apps are free, supported by in-app ads (but never in activities or games).
We’re very excited to announce the addition of another language to our range, as Portuguese receives the Geoglot Verb Blitz treatment in our latest release for Android.
Featuring both regular and irregular delensions, Portuguese Verb Blitz is a great way to practise your grammar and expand your core Portuguese vocabulary. As well as providing a handy reference for scores of commonly used verbs, the interactive activities put your knowledge through its paces, testing meaning and morphology to help cement fluency.
As with all Geoglot Android apps, Portuguese Verb Blitz is totally free, supported by ads on menus and static screens (but never in the games).
Once you get serious about learning Icelandic, you’ll come up against that big, potentially scary wall called declensions.
These determine the many forms that Icelandic nouns can take, depending on their meaning and role in the sentence. They’re notoriously difficult for foreign learners, as it’s often hard to learn which ending goes with which case, gender and number – and then you have the indefinite / definite distinction to add to the mix, too.
Finally, there’s a new Android app from GeoGlot, which will take this often overwhelming task down a few notches in the fear factor!
Icelandic Noun Master is both an interactive reference tool and a drill practice machine. It lists the key declension patterns, and contains over a hundred model nouns to browse. Not only that, but the multichoice and gapfill quizzes test you on those tricky endings – and you can choose to focus on just one case (nominative, accusative, dative or genitive) or all of them. It will even track your progress and report the cases that you’ve been finding most difficult in the games.
So, don’t shy away from noun declensions – become a Noun Master with our latest app!
As always, GeoGlot apps are made by language lovers / learners for the same. To ensure it’s available for all learners, Icelandic Noun Master is free and supported by ads (as unobtrusive as possible, and never in any of the games!).
Learners of Welsh will no doubt have scratched their heads at some point over the traditional version of the language’s two counting systems, the vigesimal system.
The vigesimal system of counting is based on the number 20, and while Welsh is not unique in this – French and Danish also use a base of 20 for some numbers – it is different enough from the decimal system to cause some anguish for learners! Although it now coexists with a much more familiar, decimal system of counting in modern Welsh, it is still considered an important part of the language, and still used for things like ages, dates and times.
Now, Android users can download our free Number Whizz app to learn and practise these tricky numbers on the go! Featuring presentations, number games and the ultra-handy Number Writer, it’s a great way to give your brain a Welsh workout.
If you’re struggling with French, Italian or Spanish numbers – small, big or even huge – then you’ll be pleased to learn that all three are now served by a free Android ‘Number Whizz’ app.
Each one contains not only a handly how-to guide to numbers in the target language, but also games for practice, a random number generator (so your friends can test you!), and a super-useful ‘Number Writer’ module, which writes in words any number you input up to 999,999,999.
The three new Number Whizz apps are available from Google Play at the following links:
