BEST LANGUAGE LEARNING APPS AND WEBSITES


  • Mnemosyne

    Free Mac Windows Linux PortableApps.com Website

    Mnemosyne (named for the Greek goddess of memory, Mnemosyne) is spaced repetition software developed from 2003 until the present. The software is similar to Small SuperMemo iconSuperMemo, commercial software developed by Piotr Wozniak.

    Mnemosyne uses an early version of the SuperMemo algorithm, SM-2, with some modifications that deal with early and late repetitions.

    Proponents of spaced repetition software claim that by allowing algorithmic scheduling of learning reviews, long-term memorization of items is aided.

    Mnemosyne also voluntarily collects data from its users. This data is available from Bienstman upon request or via BitTorrent, and is a research project on long-term memory.

  • Amara

    Free Web Vagrant Website

    Amara (formerly Universal Subtitles or unisubs) gives individuals, communities, and larger organizations the power to overcome accessibility and language barriers for online video. The tools are free and open source and make the work of subtitling and translating video simpler, more appealing, and, most of all, more collaborative.

    The benefits of captioning and subtitling are immense:

    1. Captions make videos accessible for viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing.
    2. Translations make it possible for all of us to watch video in languages that we don't speak.
    3. Video creators get: better SEO, more views, access to a far bigger (potentially multilingual and global) audience, accessibility for deaf and hard of hearing viewers, and more.

    Amara is composed of three main parts:

    1. A subtitle creation and viewing tool (aka the widget)
    2. A collaborative subtitling website
    3. An open protocol for subtitle search/delivery
