What are the best apps to learn Azerbaijani?

Well-known language apps like Duolingo, Rosetta Stone or Babbel offer no Azerbaijani courses, but there are other apps for learning Azerbaijani that are just as good.

Baku, Capital of Azerbaijan

   Overview of the Azerbaijani Language:

The Azerbaijani language (also called Azeri) has 10 million native speakers in Azerbaijan and about 17 to 20 million speakers in Iran.

These two large Azeri groups speak the Northern and Southern Azerbaijani dialects, which are largely mutually intelligible.

The Turkmen language on the other shore of the Caspian Sea has the most similarities to Azerbaijani. However, Turkish is also very similar and to a large extent mutually understandable.

Since 1992 Azerbaijani uses the Western script. Before that, a Cyrillic script was in use and before the Soviet period Azeri had an Arabic script.

Coast of the Caspian Sea, Azerbaijan

Now let's take a look at the learning apps, software and online courses that you can use to learn Azerbaijani. The biggest advantage of such learning apps is that they are much cheaper than long language courses.

Azerbaijani Basic Course

From 17 Minute Languages

Systems: Online Access (PC, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS)

Suitable for: Beginners and Advanced Learners, Students, Professionals

Content: 1300 words (basic course), 5200 words (complete course), grammar, verb conjugations, exercises

Prices: USD 29,95 (Basic Course), USD 97 (Complete Course)

Overall Value:

The Azerbaijani Basic Course contains a vocabulary trainer for the basic Azerbaijani vocabulary (1300 words) with native-speaker audio, as well as grammar explanations and various exercises.

The vocabulary trainer works with a long-term memory method, in which the new vocabulary is checked at increasing intervals.

You can choose between text input, multiple choice or simply confirming whether you knew a word or not.

The exercises include text comprehension questions, filling in word gaps or just vocabulary lists where one side is covered.

The basic course corresponds to the official language levels A1 and A2 (explanation of CEFR language levels).

The Complete Course contains:

  • Basic course for beginners (basic vocabulary with 1300 words)
  • Intermediate course (1800 more words)
  • Advanced course for experts (2100 words)
  • Additional specialized vocabulary
  • Covers the official CEFR language levels A1 to C2
There are 17 different languages you can use to learn Azerbaijani with this app.

Summary: Much cheaper and even better than the famous Rosetta Stone. There is a free demo version available and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

uTalk Azerbaijani App

Alternative to Duolingo or Babbel

The uTalk app teaches about 2000 Azerbaijani words and focuses primarily on playful exercises. There are several exercises to choose from:

  • Read and listen to Azerbaijani words (with translation and photos)
  • Match the Azerbaijani word you heard to a photo
  • Speak a Azerbaijani word and compare the recording with the original
  • A memory game with pictures
  • Speak the Azerbaijani translation of an English word
The vocabulary is divided into 60 freely selectable topics. The special thing about the uTalk app is that you get access to all 160 languages.

The interface of the app is well made and is similar to other apps like Babbel, Duolingo or Mondly.

Summary: Getting access to 160 languages is impressive and the scope (2000 words with native speaker audio and exercises) is also solid.

Glossika Azerbaijani App

Azerbaijani for Advanced Learners

Systems: iPhone App, Online Version

Suitable for: Intermediate and advanced learners

Content: Azerbaijani advanced exercises

Prices: USD 17 (1 month and 1 language), USD 31 (1 month and all 64 languages)

Overall Value:

The Glossika app is for people who already have some basic proficiency in Azerbaijani or already know a similar language.

The app has an entry test to determine your Azerbaijani proficiency level. You can start from A1 to B2 (beginners and intermediate).

Glossika works with whole sentences instead of single Azerbaijani words. You can choose which topics you want to learn.

This app has intentionally no "gamification". The only exercises are reading, listening, typing the sentences and speaking into the microphone.

There are also no grammar explanations. You are supposed to understand Azerbaijani grammar from the context, like in Rosetta Stone.

You can try the complete app with all 64 languages for 7 days for free (without providing payment information).

Summary: Effective exercises for advanced learners, but somewhat higher price and not much variety.

Cudoo: Azerbaijani Course

Online Learning with Certificates

Systems: Online Access (PC, Mac, smartphones)

Content: Azerbaijani video lessons and quiz tests

Prices: USD 12.99 (one course), USD 24.99 (4-7 courses bundle)

Overall Value:

Cudoo is a kind of online university that offers courses with certificates on different topics.

This includes language courses for 160 languages. These are all beginner courses (CEFR level A1 and A2).

For each language there are 1-10 courses and each course has 20-40 lessons.

The lessons each include a short video with new vocabulary and there are short quiz questions below the video.

Summary: The videos are well made, so especially for smaller languages these courses are a good start.

Bluebird Azerbaijani App

Azerbaijani Lessons and Exercises

Systems: Android App, iPhone App, Online-Version (PC and Mac)

Content: Azerbaijani lessons and exercises with voice output and speech recognition

Prices: USD 9.99 (1 month), USD 100 (12 months), USD 200 (unlimited), USD 400 (163 languages)

Overall Value:

The Bluebird App offers 146 source languages and 163 target languages and dialects, including Azerbaijani.

The Azerbaijani language course in this app includes the following:

  • Daily video lessons at three difficulty levels.
  • Basic Azeri vocabulary on several dozen topics
  • Common Azerbaijani verbs with conjugations
  • Analysis of your pronunciation (with speech recognition)
  • Tests: listening comprehension, filling in word gaps, quizzes
For Azerbaijani, there are about 500 video lessons, each 5 to 60 minutes long. For languages with other scripts, the words can also be displayed trans­lite­rated in the Western script.

The Bluebird App does not have grammar lessons. Instead, you are suppo­sed to understand the grammar "implicitly" from the examples, same as in Rosetta Stone.

Summary: The video lessons and the interface require some getting used to, but the exercises are quite varied. Especially for smaller languages, this app is an acceptable alternative.


Memrise Azerbaijani App

App with User-Generated Lessons

Systems: Android App, iPhone App, Online-Version (PC and Mac)

Content: Azeri lessons and vocabulary trainer with native speaker audio, grammar

Prices: USD 8,99 (1 month), USD 60 (12 months), USD 110 (unlimited)

Overall Value:

With the Memrise App you can learn over 90 languages.

This includes even very small languages - however, in such cases the language courses are often limited to just a few lessons.

One special feature of the Memrise learning app is the large number of lessons created by users (native speakers).

The quality of these lessons varies greatly though. For example, only the basic forms verbs are usually taught, without the conjugations. Some languages also do not have an audio recording of the words at all.

Another good idea of the Memrise app are the user-generated tips and mnemonics for each word to help you memorize them.

Summary: User-generated lessons are a good idea. In practice, the quality of the lessons leaves a lot be desired.


Mango Azerbaijani App

Includes Grammar

Systems: Android and iOS Apps, Online Version

Content: Azerbaijani lessons with native speaker audio, grammar, culture

Prices: USD 7.99 (1 month), USD 80 (1 year),
USD 18 (1 month and 70 languages), USD 180
(1 year and 70 languages)

Overall Value:

The Mango Languages App offers 70 languages, including Azerbaijani.

This app also has some grammar lessons and cultural explanations. The explanations in English are all recorded and well done.

However, the number of lessons for learning Azerbaijani is quite small, which means that this app is only suitable for absolute beginners.

There are no exercises, except for the repeated vocabulary tests.

You can also record your own pronunciation in the app and compare it with the recording of a native speaker.

Summary: Good quality, but not much vocabulary. Only for absolute Azerbaijani beginners.


Lingo Azerbaijani App

Playful Azerbaijani Learning

Systems: Android and iPhone Apps, Online Version (PC and Mac)

Content: Azerbaijani lessons and exercises

Prices: USD 19.99 (1 month), USD 40 (3 months), USD 60 (6 months)

Overall Value:

The Lingo Play App offers language courses for 70 languages. It offers "gamified learning", which means learning vocabulary in a playful way.

Each Azerbaijani lesson offers the following exercises:

  • Presentation of new words with translation and image
  • Decide whether a Azerbaijani word matches the image
  • Select one of four pictures that matches a word
  • Type in the Azerbaijani word for a picture
  • Correctly type in a spoken Azerbaijani word
In the full version this app offers up to 5000 Azerbaijani words. The interface of the app is similar to Babbel, Duolingo or Mondly.

There is also a multiplayer mode and competitions where you can test your Azerbaijani skills against other people.

Summary: Overpriced Azerbaijani course that does offer some good exercises, but is not better than other similar apps.


Instant Immersion: Azerbaijani

Learning Software for Download

Systems: PC and Mac

Suitable for: Beginners and intermediate learners, travel vocabulary, business

Content: Azerbaijani vocabulary lessons and exercises

Prices: USD 35 (Level 1), USD 55 (Level 1-3)

Overall Value:

The Instant Immersion Azerbaijani learning software is available for download only for PCs and Macs.

According to the vendor, this software is supposed to be "as good as Rosetta Stone", but much cheaper because less money is spent on advertising.

Unfortunately, this promise cannot hold.

The software interface is chaotic and all three "language levels" offer a chaotic mix of easy and difficult words.

Essentially, this software only introduces new Azerbaijani vocabulary with native speaker audio and pictures, and then there are a few exercises.

Azerbaijani grammar is not included at all.

Summary: Limited scope and bad interface. At least it is relatively cheap and there is a 90-day money-back guarantee.


Linguashop: Azerbaijani

Educational Software for Download

Systems: PC (Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP)

Content: Azerbaijani lessons with native speaker audio and speech recognition, grammar

Prices: USD 35 (second language for free)

Overall Value:

The Linguashop educational software ("TeachMe") is available for over 90 languages, including Azerbaijani. It also includes an audio CD.

The native speaker audio and speech recognition are relatively good.

However, the interface of the learning software is quite chaotic and there are no exercises — only lessons where new vocabulary is presented.

It is also unclear how many words are included in this Azerbaijani learning program. There is no information about this on the website.

Some grammar lessons are included — however, these are basically just images with short texts.

Summary: Poor quality for a relatively low price. You get language courses for two languages when you buy, one as a free bonus.



Additional Ways To Learn Azerbaijani Online:

Colanguage: Find Skype teachers

Overall Value:

At Colanguage you can arrange face-to-face language lessons online via Skype with language teachers around the world (from $5-10 per hour).

In addition to using apps, it is definitely a good idea to also practice with native speakers in order to learn Azerbaijani properly.

Tandem: Find a language exchange partner

Overall Value:

Instead of hiring teachers, you can also find people who are interested in a free language exchange online via Skype.

It is completely free of charge, but you have to act as a language teacher for the other person half of the time.
