Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning!
Only 5 minutes a day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes!
The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.
100% Visual learning:
Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the delicious pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently: you won’t have use the word of your native language but connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Quicker, better and more fun! :)
We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but in this case you don’t waste your time playing instead you build a valuable asset: knowledge of a new language.
We believe in quick pace and keyboard typing is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes ;)
Strategic vocabulary selection:
The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 1700+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken.
Forge learning habit:
Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it!
I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :)
p.s.: We take full responsibility for the potential addiction to learning.
Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!

OMG SO FUN I LOVE IT
The thing that makes Drops distinguishable from other language learning apps is that it’s extremely engaging. It keeps me constantly focused on the lesson. I also like how the lesson is presented — simply matching words with a visual description with a single stroke of finger! I think it’s the simplicity of the app that keeps me focused on what is presented in front of me, and less worried and pressured to wanting to obtain as much information as possible. Not to mention the AR version — just splendid! I get to be more engaged through the AR version (although it does sometimes distract me due to my fascination of AR). I also like how it offers me a one time payment for the whole lesson; it reassures me that I can come back to the app any time in the future and access the contents, which, by the way, is well-organized and selected. I just like every part of the app! So fun, so simple, so engaging.
Very good although...
I love the app! I would recommend this to my friends and family! But... the only reason why I have this a 4 is because you have to wait 10 hours till your next session. Depending on how fast you can do things, (I’m pretty slow at this) you get a different distance on your session then you have to listen. If you don’t want that 10 hour thingy you have to pay (that’s what I’m getting from it). I’m not sure if there is any way to bypass this 10 hour wait thing for free, count me in! I’m going to Japan soon and I want to learn as much as possible before I go. I would give this a 5 if the 10 hour wait thing were removed.
A fun & streamlined way to learn Japanese
So far I am using the free version, which gives me about 5 minutes each day. The format is really intuitive & I like the colors & sounds that accompany the learning- it makes it feel like a game. Things that are fun are usually so much easier to return to again and again!
