Romanian verbs? No problem with our new Android app!

Romanian learners can now hop on the Geoglot verb drill train, with our brand new release of Romanian Verb Blitz for Android!

It’s always an exciting moment when we release a new language at Geoglot. Romanian has been a particularly interesting one, especially for those of us who speak other romance languages. To those familiar with Italian, Portuguese, French or Spanish, Romanian will seem strangely familiar. It developed from the Latin spoken by Roman settlers in Dacia – roughly modern-day Romania and Moldova – and has been influenced by its surrounding non-romance languages too.

For learner of this fascinating language, Romanian Verb Blitz is both a handy reference and grammatical drill tool. With over 100 conjugations, there’s lots of opportunity to practise those tricky endings (typical for a romance language!).

Romanian vocabulary boosting

Not only that, but it’s also a great way to expand your everyday vocabulary. The verbs included represent some of the most commonly used words in Romanian, so you’ll boost your word power as well as your grammar.

All the familiar Verb Blitz drill games are there:

  • Infinitive quiz – drill those meanings
  • Conjugation quiz – test yourself on verb endings
  • Snap – translation practice
  • Gapfill – great for spelling / literacy skills

As little – or as much – as you like

You can select which tenses to play the games with – ideal for focusing on what you are currently learning. Only covered the present so far? Then just select that one in the settings. Want a fiendishly tricky test to test your language skills? Then select all of them!

What’s more, the app will track all the verbs that you have found trickiest across the games. You can review these at any time in the ‘Performance‘ section, and target them for more practice.

As always, Verb Blitz for Android remains a free download, supported by discreet in-app ads – but never in the activities themselves.

Happy learning!

 

 

Icelandic Noun Master makes declensions less scary!

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!).
