New York, NY (PRWEB) January 25, 2011
Living Language, the foremost name in foreign language self-study since 1946, announces the first comprehensive language course available as a mobile app--currently available in French, with Spanish and Italian editions coming soon.
"The Living Language French app is a complete beginner course in the chosen language, not merely an introductory lesson, dictionary or travel phrasebook," says Chris Warnasch, renowned linguist and Publishing Director of Living Language. "The apps use the same Living Language method that our courses use, scientifically developed to target the way adults acquire language--by using rules and logic, not rote memorization."
Whether you're visiting Paris for Valentine's Day, heading to the City of Lights for a winter getaway, or just trying to brush up on your high school French, Living Language French is a fun, easy, effective way to learn on the go. The mobile app creates an interactive learning experience through 10 lessons, including:
•interactive flashcards to build vocabulary
•clearly explained essential grammar lessons
•audio dialogues for pronunciation and conversation
•practice quizzes, games and puzzles like Bubble Burst, Dragon Slayer and Match
Unlike other language study apps, Living Language French offers a full-length study course for $9.99, teaching the complete basics of the new language, not just vocabulary or conversation phrases. The app, available for iPhone and iPad, mirrors Living Language's Essential French CD/booklet courses.
Living Language has taught millions of people in 28 languages since it was developed in the 1940's by the U.S. State Department to prepare diplomats stationed overseas. Whether using LP records (as in the original editions), cassettes, CDs or a smartphone, Living Language's simple lessons and scientifically grounded method give users the tools for fluency in a new language.
