discerning learner

Over the past few years I've used quite a number of dictionaries as I've been learning German and French. Linguee has become my first choice when I need an example sentence showing the word in context. When there are multiple definitions for a word, it will often include three or more example sentences. surprisingly however I often find that I want even more that is provided. It also tries to show you search results from the web, but that is seldom helpful.

What is helpful, is that it attempts to prioritize which sense of the word is used most. Too often however the vocabulary used in the example sentences is considerably advanced compared to the word I’m trying to understand, which reduces its usefulness for someone learning the language. Thus, the most useful thing for me would be even more examples using simpler language

It could also be improved if it also provided links to conjugation, verb tense explanation, and the abbreviations it uses for gender, plurals, etc

It elegantly designed, avoiding unnecessary complexity. It will be a challenge to maintain that while including the features I just mentioned

The only dictionary app I use (for German)


This app is amazing. It is very clean looking, easy to use, and available for offline use. My favorite part is the online feature which shows you the use of words in context from the internet. This helps me see how words are used in idioms and phrases, which case certain words take, and reminds me of the grammar rules I’ve forgotten since I last took a language class. My only complaint is that there is no Turkish. I would love a German-Turkish or Turkish-English dictionary on here, especially since I’ve been unable to find any truly trustworthy Turkish dictionary apps. Thanks so much for an amazing product, and hope you add more languages in the future!

Fantastic language app


I’m not one to often write app reviews, but this app has been beyond helpful in learning Dutch. With really practical examples and a user friendly interface, it pretty much blows other Dutch vocabulary and dictionary apps away. For Dutch, i do notice that some words in Dutch are missing, or have a limited set of translations. But overall, the app is great! Thanks for making this!
