A lot of people underestimate the usefulness of apps for learning Portuguese.
It’s understandable why.
Not long ago, apps were really simple. Maybe you’d find a good phrasebook or a dictionary or some kind of game that sort of teaches you a little bit of the language.
Nowadays though, you can learn just about every aspect of the language from an app.
This is equally true whether you want to grow your vocabulary, improve your listening comprehension, work with a tutor or language exchange partner, find reading materials to suit your level, or are looking for a course that you can easily access from your phone as you go about your life.
Basically, regardless of your needs, there’s an app for it. Okay, that’s not quite true, but it almost is. This list will take a look at over 25 useful apps for learning Portuguese.
These apps will be loosely organized based on the following topics.
There will be a fair amount of overlap as most apps won’t neatly fit into one category.
