Tin It Or Bin It – 9 March 2012 – MindSnacks
Thanks to a new app called MindSnacks, gone are the days when you have to read a pile of boring textbooks to learn a new language. The new educational app provides fun, interactive language learning games in over 13 different languages.
It features six entertaining games designed to build essential vocabulary, reading, writing, listening and conversation skills. You work your way through 50 levels of language content, playing games and completing fun challenges as you go. The app also includes a unique learning algorithm that uses proven methods of memorisation training to make sure you don’t forget anything. Muy inteligente.
The goal is to progress through a set of engaging and fast-paced challenge games that test your knowledge of material provided by the app. After each game is completed, the user can see how many points they received toward unlocking the next level, and how many words have been mastered. These features are fantastic for motivation and mean that you can become hooked very quickly. It was created to make learning as much fun as possible and it seems to do exactly that.
MindSnacks is aimed at those who are just starting out, as well as beginner and intermediate learners. For English speakers, there are options to learn French, Italian, Spanish, German, Portuguese and Chinese.
The only drawback is that it is currently only available for iPhone, iTouch and iPad devices. Despite this, MindSnacks is a Tin It. Fantástico!
