Learners of Welsh now have the chance to drill those tricky verb forms, with the release of Welsh Verb Blitz for Android!
Combining reference and drill tools, Welsh Verb Blitz is a great way to memorise some of the key periphrastic and declined forms of over 80 colloquial Welsh verbs. Users can even switch between North and South Wales varieties, as there are some key differences between the two – for instance, the North’s preference for o (‘he’) instead of e.
The verbs in the app, as always, represent some of the most commonly used words in the Welsh language, making Welsh Verb Blitz a great vocabulary builder / consolidator too.
Flummoxed by Scottish Gaelic verbs? Now there’s an easy way to break them down, with the arrival of Scottish Gaelic Verb Blitz for Android from Geoglot!
Containing over 100 Gaelic verbs, the app focuses on three key tenses: present, past and future. Students can browse and learn through the reference section with its clear, concise verb tables, or drill their conjugation skills in the activities familiar to other users of Geoglot’s popular Verb Blitz apps:
Infinitive Quiz: test yourself of the basic meanings of verbs!
Conj Quiz: Can you match the English with the correct Gaelic translation?
Snap: Does the Gaelic sentence match the English translation or not?
Gapfill: Complete the missing word in each Gaelic sentence.
The verb bank represents a set of very frequent, everyday words in Gaelic, so the app doubles as a great vocabulary builder as well as grammar tool.
We’re really excited to be making the leap forward with Gaelic here at Geoglot – we hope you love practising it as much as we do!
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!).
Italian and Norwegian learners are now catered for with the GeoGlot Verb Blitz range. Practise a range of tenses and scores of verbs through interactive reference and games modules. Both apps are free, and available from the Google Play store at the following links:
