Drill yourself on the most common vocabulary words from your Spanish courses and from everyday Spanish conversation. Boost your vocab FASTER than with any other app on iTunes. Applying the latest in cognitive science, Brainscape introduces vocabulary words in order from most foundational to most complex, and repeats them in a pattern that is just right for YOUR brain.

Rather than creating frivolous games or distracting quizzes to try to make learning “fun,” Brainscape provides a scientifically optimized algorithm to repeat flashcards in just the right pattern for your brain’s maximum absorption, based on YOUR confidence. Brainscape makes sure that your study time is used as efficiently as possible, because -– let’s face it -– you are busy!

Learn Spanish Vocabulary * includes:

• Over 3,000 AUDIO flashcards composed of the most important words in Spanish -– carefully ordered from most foundational to most complex (unlike other vocab apps, which simply dump words into “themes” with no sense of progression)
• Hundreds of key phrases that will help you survive better on the streets of –- wherever!
• A customized flashcard repetition algorithm that cuts your memorization time dramatically
• Convenient “browse” and “search” functions that allow you to easily find cards you want
• Ongoing feedback, statistics, and visualization tools to help you track your progress

The Brainscape team is made up of former executives from The Princeton Review and Kaplan, as well as cognitive scientists and language specialists formerly with Columbia and Yale. Our mission is to make learning easier and more convenient. Feel free to visit our website (www.brainscape.com), and good luck studying!

    Haven't taken foreign language lessons in almost four decades. This is making the learning process much easier than the 1st time around.

  • Spanish 101

    by Number placement

    It's amazing how many words you already know, just from everyday interaction and even more amazing how quickly you pick the new words up, especially after sleeping on them, and going back the second day....have fun. Simple and easy...5+stars. Use it daily!

    Very effective and well organized.

  • Outstanding! Highly recommend!

    by Bantock's Ghost

    The app takes a simple system of flashcards and maximizes its utility by differentiating the words by degrees of the user's familiarity. Would like to see additional sets of flashcards/vocabulary added.

  • Awesome

    by jordan CROWE

    Great app!!! You should make an app for slang Spanish words that would be awesome such as cuss words or things like that

  • Great app

    by ikinci hesap

    I am using this app almost everday, this a great and fun way of improving your vocab, very few typos

  • Very useful study tool

  • Great app

    by Deg73zag

    Love this vocab card app! Great way to learn

  • Easy to use

    by Monalijoh

    This app has a lot of repetition to help reinforce vocabulary. Won't teach the language, but it's only advertised as a vocabulary tool not a full teaching app.

  • Great progressive learning app accessible with Voice Over

    by Lisa0701Lisa01566

    This app is easy to use and I have learned and retained a lot of Spanish because of the progressive study style. I highly recommend it to anyone who is learning Spanish or just wants a refresher!

  • Impressed

    by Kingolicious

    This app really does a great job of helping you to really hone in on key words and phrases that you can use everyday. Although it doesn't help you to put sentences to get her specifically. It will really helps you vocabulary tremendously.

  • Can't love it more!

    by Deppppppoo

    So automatically efficient! The greatest language learning helper

  • Learning is fun

    by SFBran

    We have just moved to SW Florida and can see the benefit of knowing Spanish. I love the flash card style of learning and the ability to hear the pronunciation of the vocabulary. By repeating the word or phrase you choose on a scale of 1-5 how well you know the word and therefore how often it is put in the shuffle of words. Have only used this app a few times, but would highly recommend.

  • by moe sindy

    This app is great for those who want to learn Spanish fast.

  • Keeps Closing

    by The Runner 54663

    I got this app about a year ago and it worked great but now that I downloaded the iOS 7 it keeps crashing and won't even let me use the app.

  • Wonderful!

    by Nick Peters, Scottsdale AZ

    This is a great addition for anyone studying Spanish. Add this to a verb study book and an interactive teaching program like Rosetta Stone and you have everything you need to learn Spanish. ¡Buena suerte!

  • Great app

    by Really like

    This really helps learn vocabulary. Easy to use and has a great rating system to review chosen words more.

  • Pretty good

    by Mackenzie45220

    All you really need to know is that the paid edition has over 4000 words and phrases (mostly words). They are also incredibly detailed with verbs and the prepositions that follow. For example, the word "to think" is "pensar." The word "about" is "sobre." English speakers would logically conclude that the phrase "to think about" is "pensar sobre." However, (and my high school textbooks don't make things like this clear) it's actually "pensar en", no "pensar sobre." Of all the verbs followed by accompanying prepositions in this app, I don't think half of them are followed by the preposition my knowledge of English would lead me to expect, and this app is invaluable in that regard

  • Love it

    by JennRocket

    So fun and easy.

  • Love this app!

    by momthebillpayer

    Love this! Takes me back to my high school Spanish class days. It's refreshing my memory & teaching me new things. Think I will spend the $ for the full version, as I now have several Spanish speaking neighbors.

  • Spanish 101 A+!

    by Jaxon303

    What a great way to learn or relearn Spanish! Helps if you already have a basic understanding of the language and conjugation, but you can get by with just knowing the vocabulary.

  • Great way to learn

    by TKDDKF

    Really enjoy the way it reviews the words. Good job

  • Awesom

    by HannaLane

    Awesome this app is super helpful!!

  • So helpful

    by Sarah-Barah23

    This app has been so helpful in studying for my major. It's clean, simple and well organized. My only concern is I purchased the Spanish verbs and vocab card decks as individual purchases before downloading the main brainscape app. They did not auto sync to the main app but this should be resolved as there were specific instructions on the main app help page. My advice: Make sure you download the main app and purchase any content through that so everything stays nice and tidy.

  • Amazing app

    by Sugarsnap205

    I love this app. I am learning a lot

  • Great app

    by Goldstaralbum569

    This has smart notecards that flash through the pile and let you mark how comfortable you are with it! It's great for reviewing or learning for the first time.

  • One of the best Spanish apps!

    by Lex1515

    Helps me brush up on my Spanish with ease

  • Outstanding!!!

    by Zarm farm

    Love it! I took Spanish last year and this will help me over the summer!

  • The best!

    by Alex Marginean

    One of the best Spanish learning apps around. Well worth the money for the full version.

  • Very, very good

    by RSlade

    This is exactly what a hungry beginner like me needs--I can whiz past words I know cold and focus on those I don't. Only problem is that the program occasionally quits without warning.

  • Great app

    by Mee5486589645789

    Much simpler and cleaner than the other apps I've used. No gimmicks. I love it.

  • Better than RosettaStone!
