In the frames of the Moving Languages project, we deliver a gamified language-learning solution specifically be targeted at the immigrants in the European countries and useful for everyone studying English, Spanish, Italian, German, Swedish or Finnish. The mobile application is available for download on both iOs and Android markets free of charge.
The application is available in 6 target language versions (English, Spanish, Italian, German, Swedish and Finnish) with 20+ support languages each (the languages most widely spoken by the immigrants in each of the partner countries: Albanian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Kurdish, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Somali, Spanish, Swedish, Tigrinya, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Urdu)
The language content of the mobile applications created in this project covers the topics that are essential during the first steps of living in the new country and contains over 5000 study items in about 100 vocabulary categories with 4000 images, 750 idiomatic phrases, grammar and text comprehension exercises, and more than 30 dialogues in each language.
