In my search high and low for an app that will help me learn European Portuguese as opposed to Brazilian Portuguese I found this wonderful app. Highly recommended for building vocubulary:

@jives yes I'm using Anki on Mac and iOS in conjunction with the cards I purchased off Fluent for 12 bucks.

@annasI've started a trial. Interestingly the little questionnaire at the beginning that assesses how many words you know was bang on the money. It estimated that I know 500 words. And what do you know, that's the exact milestone I reached in the DROPS app this morning!

@annas I really like it so far. I just wish they'd leave the image up when practicing a word.

@christiaan nice to hear! I only tried it for a couple of days, then we focused on buying a new motorhome (a much smaller so had some downsizing to do). And then there was the travel down to PT. So now we are here to search for a plot of land or ruin. And hopefully I will be able to focus on there language as well!
