Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions: Apps and Gadgets to Stay On Track

Learn a New Language

Maybe you’re planning to take that long-talked-about trip to Spain, or perhaps you’re hoping to relearn the grammar from high school French. Wherever your linguistic ambitions take you, mobile apps like the following can get you there quicker. 


Rosetta Stone TOTALe Companion App
Free; www.rosettastone.com 

Available for the iPhone, iPhone, or iPad, TOTALe Companion supplements Rosetta Stone’s full TOTALe language-learning software. Choose from 33 languages—including Italian, Mandarin, Russian, and Thai—and jump right into the pre-programmed and online lessons. The mobile app adds value by letting you do your learning on the road (or on your trip abroad, perhaps?).



Paragon Software Foreign Language Dictionary Apps
Starting at $9.99; android-software.penreader.com 

While Android users can’t take their Rosetta Stone learning with them on a mobile device, Paragon Software offers an equally invaluable language tool: deluxe, full-length dictionaries that include every word you could ever need to know in the language of your choice. Options include Czech, German, Italian, Polish, and Russian.
