Mondly CEO, Alexandru Iliescu said: "There are over 1.5 billion people around the world currently learning English, including over 25-percent of our users. Mondly and OUP are the ideal team to comprehensively support and enable their learning journey."
I've used the Mondly app for a while, trying to learn new languages like Spanish and Italian. I also had a look at the English tests to see if they delivered accurate learning in English.
If you are trying to learn English as a foreign language, then Mondly delivers correct English through its assessment modules.
If you have a slight grasp of another language, then you might find that the initial lessons are a bit basic, and you can often guess the correct word using the visual clues on the app.
However, you are not penalised for missing off any accent from a letter, as most of the lessons involve dragging the words to complete the sentence, or tapping letters in the correct order.
As you progress, the topics become more complex and learning a completely new language such as Urdu or Vietnamese will be simplified as you associate the words and characters with the images on the app.
My only criticism of Mondly is that I can only learn to speak Mandarin Chinese and I would like to enhance my knowledge of Cantonese Chinese as I go into more Cantonese restaurants and have Cantonese speaking friends.
But I suppose I could try to learn any one of the other languages on offer before complaining too much.
Mondly is available on the app store and is well worth a try if you would like to enhance your learning and speak a new language.
