About Drops

Drops is an app that helps users learn and remember new vocabulary words in their target language. The app divides words into different subjects, and the subjects cover most of what you’ll need in daily life. Drops language app is available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android.

Teacher Review

The Drops app helps its users learn new vocabulary words quickly and efficiently. Its design is absolutely beautiful, and the science behind the app helps you store new words in your long-term memory. 

The Drops app's fun, colorful layout definitely makes the language you're trying to learn feel less intimidating, even if you have no prior experience with it. Drops' 5-minute lessons teach vocabulary and phrases by matching images with their corresponding word and vice versa.

Drops limits your learning time to just 5 minutes of vocabulary building gameplay a day. Seriously, once your five minutes are up, Drops starts a countdown timer for 24 hours later when you can play again. The games are fun, having you swipe letters to form the foreign words (Spanish, French, German, Italian, and English) in order, choose the correct illustration for the word, answer true or false questions, and occasionally race against another player.

The Drops language learning activities are really engaging, which was refreshing. I like them because they actually help you remember the words you’re studying. They also keep you interested while you learn, which I’ve noticed is a problem with other apps.

Drops is often compared to Lingodeer and Memrise, and with good reason. Lingodeer uses a similar gamification method, whereas Memrise incorporates similar image mnemonics. However, Lingodeer teaches in a more holistic manner, whereas Memrise has multiple decks with different focuses.

There are also a number of other language learning apps that focus on different areas.


When you create an account, you can try out Drops' premium features free for seven days. The app offers three different packages -- $10/month for a monthly package, $3/month for a yearly package, or a one-time payment of $160 for lifetime access to the app.

Effortless visual way to learn Spanish, English, French, German, Russian, Portuguese or Italian vocabulary in just 5 minutes a day! First you’ll fall in love then get addicted to learning! :)

Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning!

Only 5 minutes per day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes!

The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.

100% Visual learning:
Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the delicious pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently: you won’t have use the word of your native language but connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Quicker, better and more fun! :)

Effortless learning:
We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but in this case you don’t waste your time playing instead you build a valuable asset: knowledge of a new language.

Swipe based:
We believe in quick pace and keyboard typing is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes ;)

Strategic vocabulary selection:
The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 1000+ practical words that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken.

Forge learning habit:
Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it!

I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :)

Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!
