3. Duolingo German

Although language learning apps like Duolingo won’t have you speaking fluent German overnight, we think this app is an excellent way to build up your German vocabulary, work on your pronunciation and give you an idea of whether you’re serious about going on to study German in a more formal fashion. Laid out like a game, Duolingo is fun to use and you can pick up where you left off at any point, making it ideal for people short of time and for those who want to learn a language on the go. Perfect for a commute or just five minutes of German escapism!
