Let’s face it, learning a new language is a long and often painful process. Developing anything near a native-like competence requires years of study and practice.
Smigen, a new app available for the iPhone allows you to construct simple stock phrases in 12 languages. The clever part is not what the app does but what it doesn’t do.
From the developers website:
We’ve created a system that uses the most simple, grammar-friendly approach possible. We only use words that don’t require any verb changes … ever.
Here’s the thing. There are a small number of words, which if used, allow you to build a phrase without worrying about correct verb endings and other grammar stuff. Verbs and grammar are hard work. Instead, we created a really simple tool so you don’t have to worry about grammar. You just make your phrase.
Smigen is available now on the Apple App Store.
