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! :)

Effortless practice:
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.

Swipe based:
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!

NEW: Augmented Reality (AR) - practice!
(AR mode is available on all iOS 11 devices that are powered by Apple’s A9 or A10 chip: iPhone 6S or newer / iPad Pro / 2017 iPad)

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!

Very pleased

I’m a Korean culture enthusiast and I’ve always thought the best way to understand a people is to first speak their language. There aren’t any Korean teachers where I live so, naturally, I took to language-learning apps. One of my favourite things about Drops is that you can easily track your progress and the app makes sure to give you enough practice with a specific word. It’s not a perfect app and I did have to do my own research elsewhere about letter and sentence structuring, but if you’re serious about learning the language, I would definitely recommend this app for it’s the only one that is yet to disappoint me. In regards to the new update though, I would like to ask the producers of the application to re-evaluate how they expect us to draw certain characters. I feel as though there is no one starting or ending point for each and every letter, especially in Korean where a letter is literally a square (ㅁ). I suggest that we be allowed to start and stop at whichever point on the letter, provided we know how to write, yes? Apart from that, an overall 10/10 app.

Great app so far!

This app is very good and is free! It’s much better than other apps because it gives a more obvious easy way of learning and memorizing new words! This is especially good for me to use to get my brain working in the mornings and for when I really do need it to freshen up my brain! If anyone downloads this I definitely recommend 100%! (Although I’m not sure how accurate this app is) Maybe you won’t become the most fluent, but you will definitely gain knowledge quickly and the challenges are worth the try! (EDIT: I think another good idea for this app is to make the free version 10 minutes instead of 5 due to the fact that 5 minutes is only going to help you with so much rather than having 10 and being able to break down what you’ve learned and apply it within a plentiful time span and stress free without worrying about the time limit and rushing your thought process which could cause you to get a lot of incorrect answers.)

Hi, Thanks for playing Drops and posting a 5-star review! We designed the session length for beginners, but you can get extra learning time for free by watching ads and referring Drops. Is there anything else you think we should improve on? Feel free to let us know!

Great for vocab building

I’ve been using various resources but this is really nice for simple vocabulary building. It targets learning the word through various ways, choosing between two option, matching, yes/no, and “spelling”. The only thing I will say about the spelling is that it’s romanized spelling, not hangul, so this is not something that is going to help you in that area if that’s what you’re looking for. But I do appreciate that each time the word if shown, it is also “spoken”. This may be annoying for some people but I think it’s incredibly useful for pronunciation at the word level. Enjoying it so far!

Update: literally the second after I post this, it offered me more time. And then I see lessons in consonants and vowels! I’m not sure how deep it goes, but it will at least help you learn the alphabet and also teaches stroke order/ handwriting. The vowels seem a bit repetitive but I am also already familiar with them so it might be just right for complete beginners
