    Rosetta Stone review by Nicholas F.
    "Absolutely love it!: I love how Rosetta stone completely immerses you in the language you are trying to learn. I used it to start learning Mandarin Chinese and this was crucial because any other program was mostly just reading, but Chinese has so many pronunciations that it was crucial to be speaking. It is really effective to constantly be using pictures for form associations, even if you aren't a very visual learning, because you're also speaking and listening. Using every sense like that ensure's the most effective learning possible."

    Mango Languages review by Christina W.
    "Excellent Program! Look: I learn very well with Mango Language's methodology. The repetition and more importantly, direct application have been great. The lessons are concise, relevant, and comprehensive. The progression of lessons make realistic sense for a person who is going to be visiting another country or needs to learn to survive quickly in another language. It's clear that they are building up different lessons for diverse learning styles. I absolutely love the movie learning! The color coded subtitles are gold (no pun intended)! One of my favorite features is the "literal translation." That has been invaluable as I decipher the foreign grammar. As far as conjugation is concerned, it's great that ML doesn't force us to read boring grammar charts and other things like that. Makes it easy to want to stick with the program and continue to learn."

    Lingvist review by Mohammad I.
    "Lingvist is the best app for learning Spanish and French: I am using this app to learn the basics of Spanish words and sentences. It provides a huge catalog of texts in its app for me to read and learn. It has a smooth mouse roll over support and I can easily hover a word and see its translation immediately which I liked the most about it. Also I have noticed that I can rewind the audio part for about 5-10 seconds any number of times to repeatedly listen to previous sentence back to back till I am satisfied with myself that I have learnt it."

    "Learning science meets fun and easy!! : I have my students use memrise in my foreign language classes for vocabulary homework. SInce I started using this app, my students have improved 150% in their retention of new vocabulary. The app is simple, straightforward, keeps track of everyone's progress, and uses the science of how we learn to ensure long-term retention of the material (as opposed to "cramming" material for a test or quiz)."

    Open English review by Kurt W.
    "La Mejor Plataforma para Aprender Ingles: Open English sin duda alguna es para mi la mejor plataforma para aprender el idioma ingles, ya que resulta bastante dinámico y fácil el uso de su plataforma, la interfaz de usuario es sumamente fácil de usar por lo intuitiva que es. Para mi lo que le da el plus son las sesiones en vivo, donde puedes interactuar directamente con un profesor que realmente domina el idioma ya que es su lengua materna, y a la vez interactúas con muchas personas de otros países con las mismas necesidades de aprender el idioma. Todo el programa esta diseñado para que puedas aprender el idioma de una manera progresiva según el tiempo que tu le dediques. Otra de las cosas que me gusto de Open English es que cuenta con una app para dispositivos móviles, y así puedas seguir practicando desde cualquier lugar. "

    italki review by Thomas D.
    "It probably depends on the language one's learning: I've been on Italki since April 2016, trying to find help learning Punjabi (Gurmukhi). I haven't had much luck: A few teachers have contacted me over the years but I didn't feel that they were qualified to teach (I used to teach French myself, years ago). The platform is well conceived and I'm sure that my experience would have been vastly different if I had try to learn a more common language."

    Rocket Languages review by Kelli  A.
    "Learning Hindi as a Native English Speaker (US English): Where to begin?! The ability to test my pronunciation, not just for single words, but for entire phrases at once is very helpful. This is likely to be especially true for anyone who gets a bit tongue-tied when trying to speak a new phrase at a regular pace instead of super slow. The "cultural context" lessons are a fun way to put what you are learning into a cultural context to understand when/where to best use certain phrases and words. Having 5 different modes of testing after each module helps drill in what you've learned in a way that doesn't get stale a repetitive. I also love the length of the lessons. It isn't too much of a time commitment, but I still feel like it's been a really productive session. "

    Transparent Language Online review by Kayla C.
    "Very holistic software, but hard to stay motivated: Transparent languages has a lesson for everything, and I don't think I'm exaggerating. If there's a topic in another language that'd you'd like to learn a plethora of minute details about, Transparent Languages is the correct software for you. It has tons of in-depth lessons on niche topics in different languages. It's quite comprehensive, and offers a variety of teaching methods (from writing, to speaking, to reading, etc). "
