With these language apps you will feel like a local on your next trip.

To travel means discovering new places, new cultures, meeting local people and learning a new language. Yes, we know English can get you anywhere but you miss out on all the fun of learning a new language! Now it's easier than ever with the help of smartphones and apps. Here are the 5 best language apps.

1. Speak and translate

Record the person speaking and this app will translate what he/she is saying. Also, you can see the sentences in your smartphone, which will give you a better understanding. Captura de pantalla 2016-11-08 a las 11.45.46

2. Memrise

Learning the basics of a new language with this app is so much fun. Memrise helps you to learn new words and sentences and helps you to memorize them with a game. It also adapts to your way of learning which is why we love this app.

3. World Lens

World Lens translates instantly the text from the pictures you take, which means than by only taking a photograph of a word or a sentence, you can easily translate it. World Lens can translate words and simple sentences but not long phrases. Captura de pantalla 2016-11-08 a las 11.48.09
