We've been pretty diligent about using Duolingo and Memrise, two free, online options for language learning, but it seemed like time for something new and exciting. So, when I discovered Cat Academy, my interest was peaked!
Described by Forbes as a merger between "mind, meme and meow", Cat Academy is an app developed by Memrise, so I already knew and respected the "brand", so to speak. It uses photos of cats in cute and ridiculous predicaments to help "hook" words and phrases. Comic-like cats also praise and encourage you as you play.
Interestingly, the app "detects" what you have mastered, and what you still need to work on, and gives you relevant challenges as you go. The teacher in me loves this differentiated approach!!!
I also like that the "write your own" phrases in the training are comprised of click-on words that incorporate your device's touch screen, rather than requiring the player to type on that too-small keyboard.
So, don't delay, learn Spanish -- with cats -- TODAY!
