Some Windows 8 Apps for Language Learning

If you have a Windows 8 computer you might want to get some apps that you can use on your new computer. Here are some apps that might help you with the language you are learning.


Little Prince Series

Animals 101
Transport 101

This is a cute game which has two modes, a learning mode and a game mode.
In the learning mode you can click on flashcards and hear the Chinese name for animals. 
In the game mode they give you the name for an animal and ask you which one it is.

Transportation 101 is the same way.


Learn Japanese Romaji

This is a game for people who know a little bit of Japanese vocabulary. If you don't know all the words you will by the time you've played the game ten or twenty times. The game is easy and if you are competitive, it can be addictive. Drag the words to their matching picture.


Vocabuland HD

This last one doesn't have a game mode which is actually pretty disappointing considering it would have great potential in that area. It has quite a few vocabulary words in Spanish or English. You can listen to a man or woman say them. I felt like with a name like Vocabuland, I would at least get a game so I felt let down. Maybe in the future they will have a game mode where they say a word and you have to click on the picture of the word. That would be great!

If you are the type of person who likes picture dictionaries and just sit and browse them for hours then this is a good app for you.

So, if you have a Windows 8 computer go ahead and check these out in the app store. You can find most of them by doing a quick search for "Learn Spanish", "Learn Chinese" or "Learn Japanese"
