busuu.com, Europe’s largest online language-learning community with over 900,000 users, has launched iPhone applications learning Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and English. Members can synchronise their progress with their online profile, enabling them to switch seamlessly between learning on the iPhone and the busuu.com website.
Available for free download from the iTunes App Store, the new language applications can be used on Apple’s iPhone (including the new iOS4), iPod Touch and iPad. They cover beginner to advanced-intermediate learning levels (A1, A2, B1, B2) according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The free version of each app includes full access to 20 learning units (5 units at each level). The complete, paid-for content offers vocabulary units (with more than 3,000 words and phrases), grammar units, 150 dialogues and hundreds of interactive exercises. This can be activated by paying just 2.99 EUR per learning level or 12.00 EUR for each entire course.
The applications, which can be used even without an internet connection, are based on busuu.com’s award-winning online language courses and offer fully audiovisual content including pictures and sounds. They also store users’ mistakes in the interactive tests, enabling them to focus on their weaknesses and progress much faster with their learning.
