This is an excellent resource for those who are already studying a foreign language and want some extra practice opportunities. Mondly: Learn 33 Languages has a lot packed into a tidy package. There's a sort of predictability in the lessons that may serve as comforting or tedious, depending on your personality. But everything works as you'd expect and you won't end up struggling because the interface has thrown you off. The vocabulary in the lessons covers a wide range of topics, all of which are relevant whether you're traveling or communicating with a co-worker. While there are a handful of grammar lessons, there isn't a lot of in-depth coverage on things like sentence structure, verb conjugations, etc., making the app more effective if paired with a more formal language class. If you're new to a language, it's easy to quickly find yourself in over your head. The toggle to allow for Roman-alphabet or the native alphabet is very helpful, especially for advanced students who have the vocabulary, but need to practice their reading skills. But once again, Mondly: Learn 33 Languages does cover the alphabets so it will be nearly impossible to pick those up without some external support. All of the quizzes, statistic, and leaderboards will appeal to those who like a bit of gamification in their learning and can easily be ignored by those who don't. Likewise, the augmented reality is a fun gimmick, but doesn't add a lot to the language learning process. Mondly: Learn 33 Languages is a polished entry to the language-learning world and is a wonderful tool for practicing what you've already learned and picking up some new vocabulary along the way.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
