As with the websites, these apps are specific to Spanish and Spanish alone. For general language learning, check out my listed blog posts at the top of this page! 🙂
Several of these are free for a select number of lessons and then cost to continue.
I would recommend trying a ton of apps and websites out first, before buying anything.
There are more than enough free Spanish resources (or better paid options, like italki), but some sites or apps might be perfect for you and your lifestyle and therefore worth paying for!
Courses and other learning apps:
- Spanish Word Game – My personal favorite! This is a very fun matching game to teach you vocab. You match to win points and you can then use the points to add new vocab lists to your repertoire. There is a small grammar aspect to the app as well, but it is minimal.
- Lirica – Learn Spanish through music! This app has tons of songs in Spanish that each teach a different grammar feature and/or new vocab via fun exercises and games.
- SpanishDict – The app version of the amazing website mentioned above. A dictionary and translator with lessons and vocab drills as well!
- Fabulingua – Teaching Spanish via children’s stories and tons of cool features! Games, recording for pronunciation practice, bilingual or Spanish-only narration, and more.
- Parla – A very full app with tons of features to learn all aspects of Spanish!
- LangLandia – This is an expansive app designed like a video game to teach vocab and grammar to beginners and pre-intermediate learners!
- Conjuu – This app helps teach you verb conjugations via quizzes and reviews.
- Conjugato – Similar to Conjuu (in that it is a verb conjugation guide), but a bit more simple.
- Spanish Verb Conjugator – Another simple app that helps with verb conjugations. This one is less quiz-like than the two above, however. It just shows conjugations – it will not help teach you them!
- 10 Minute Spanish – A bite-sized vocab learning app that focuses on speaking, listening, and writing.
- Infinite Spanish – Great bite-sized lessons to teach vocab. Including fun games to practice, as well!
- ReWord Flashcards – A simple vocab flashcard app similar to Quizlet or Anki.
- Lingo Cat – A vocab training app for beginners.
- ABC Mexican Spanish – A beginner app to teach vocab via lessons, quizzes, and games!

- Spanish Learning for Beginners – A minimalistic app to help you with mastering Spanish conversation.
- Spanish for Kids with Stories – This is geared towards kids, but also a great app for adult beginners! Via stories, this app will teach you vocab, pronunciation, and sentence building.
- Unuhi Bilingual Books – Children’s stories in both Spanish and English!

- Canela TV – Another app to watch Spanish shows and movies on!
- La Musica – A radio and podcast app with tons of options!
If you want to play some fun games in Spanish on your phone, there are two easy ways!
The first is to just switch your phone language to Spanish. This will often automatically switch quite a few apps to this Spanish (even ones where there are no visible language settings!).
The other option is to go to a specific game’s settings and then switch the language manually! Many apps have this capability and then you can play your favorite games in Spanish.
Picking word games or games with a lot of text is ideal, as you can train your language skills much more than a typical game with only visuals and little to no text.
Most of these links are for Spotify. If you do not have Spotify, no worries, you can find some of these via other platforms!
If one podcast appeals to you, just search it online and you should find another listening option that will work for you 🙂
