Glossika has learning resources for over fifty languages that impressively range from Armenian and Czech to Icelandic and Tagalog.
While not suitable for absolute beginners, lower intermediates could use the resource to familiarise themselves with sentences in their language of choice using Glossika´s intuitive approach.
Listening to native speakers and repeating what they say can help learners to improve their comprehension skills and spoken fluency.
While it is amazing that so many languages are included, learners would have to use numerous other resources alongside it. The cost is unjustifiably high.
The audio recordings are well made but other aspects could be improved
Glossika covers an impressive number of languages but their method requires you to intuitively learn
Polyglots may find the price to be fair but for most language learners it’s overpriced
There are lots of languages available, including many that are rarely covered by other resources.
The subscription gives you access to all of the languages making it possible to study one language and review another at the same time.
It will force you to speak the language which will improve your confidence and prosody.
I DON’T LIKE…
As all of the languages cover the exact same material, the diversity of the languages and cultures are reduced to a simple formula with no cultural context involved in their teaching.
There are a fair amount of errors in the materials.
The cost is excessively high compared to other resources.
There are no explanations of grammar.
You can try out Glossika´s learning method for free with their week-long trial. The monthly subscription costs $30 a month. The annual subscription costs $24.99 a month and will set you back 299.88$ in total.

Alternatives: Speechling does much of what Glossika can do for free. In addition, for a lower monthly fee, you can get unlimited corrections on your pronunciation. Unfortunately, they offer far fewer languages compared to Glossika.
For those learning Italian, I’d recommend Ripeti Con Me. The course style is very similar to Glossika but it improves upon a lot of Glossika’s weaknesses.
