Free Spanish Learning Apps

Mobile apps have made it easy to learn Spanish online for free for beginners and beyond. This makes it much easier to squeeze in some Spanish practice every day wherever you are, and do it without spending a cent.

For our top favorite apps of 2023 (including some premium options), you might want to check out this post, too.

1. Duolingo

Duolingo is easy to use with many exercises and lessons for beginners to upper-intermediate language learners.

It’s organized by units, letting you progress at your own pace.

You can buy the premium version, but you still get the app’s best features and complete course for free.

2. Busuu

The greatest feature that Busuu offers is Spanish conversation practice with native users.

Other great features surround vocabulary, but I think that having that real-time conversation and feedback from a native speaker is extremely valuable and is what makes the app worth it.

3. Memrise

Memrise has courses for basic and advanced Spanish, plus varieties like Castilian Spanish, Mexican Spanish and Argentinian Spanish.

There’s a wide range of flashcard-based courses that you can choose from.
