Enter the Brainscape Spanish Mobile App Twitter Giveaway

I previously reviewed Brainscape’s website and mobile apps and gave away promo codes for their French Vocab Genius app. Now I’m offering another free product giveaway, but this time it is for Spanish learners: the Brainscape Spanish app!

Brainscape Spanish for iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad is a new app that uses the Intelligent Cumulative Exposure (ICE) technique to help you learn Spanish using confidence-based repetition with real sentences instead of isolated words. Grammatical concepts are also explained throughout the flashcards in plain English. If you are looking for more than just a dictionary app or simple machine translation tool, I recommend Brainscape because they go beyond the extent of normal flashcards and include sentences that are not usually included in books/apps which are mostly geared towards travelers.

Here are some screenshots:

Brainscape Spanish includes four subjects with a total of 8,857 cards:

  • Spanish Sentence Builder: 19 lessons of sentences and grammar explanations, with audio
  • Spanish Vocabulary: 15 decks of mixed Vocab Enrichment (with audio) plus Food & Restaurant, Medical, Transportation, Technology, Mechanical, and Countries & Nationalities
  • Spanish Verbs: 9 decks of verb conjugations (present, preterite, imperfect, present perfect, plurperfect, future, conditional, present subjunctive and imperfect subjunctive)
  • Business Spanish: 7 decks of vocabulary

You can choose one of the subjects or study using the Smart Mix, which chooses cards at random and repeats them based on your confidence level. Browse and Search functions also lets you find a particular word among the cards. Lastly, you can sync to the website to study the flashcards online and keep all of your progress synchronized. Don’t forget to read the description at the iTunes store.

    Very interesting.  They’ve been in contact with me as well, and I’ve yet to really review what they’re doing (a large part of that reason is that I don’t have an iPhone or smart phone of any kind that I can check out the mobile app with), but I’m keeping my eye on them, I think they could definitely go somewhere.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
