Another category of people we think would benefit from this app is tourists who want to visit Punjab. This app covers daily conversations in a short time, so if you are learning Punjabi for fun or traveling, this is the app for you. You’ll be able to understand Punjabi in no time.

Simply learning Punjabi is more of a guide that includes all the essential day-to-day words or phrases in Punjabi. It also has more than three hundred flashcards to recall your Punjabi. The flashcards are also supported by audio which you can slow down and speed up according to your liking, which is a great tool.
The app also has a tracking feature where you can track your learning process. It also offers free quizzes that you can take to assess your skills. The audio is recorded by native Indian speakers, which makes it fairly accurate.
The app is free and available for both ios and android. While there are in-app purchases, they are not essential to get.
Are you looking for a Punjabi app that will give you a needed kickstart with the Punjabi Alphabet? Punjabi App is the best app to learn Punjabi writing.
This app lets you write Punjabi in Gurmukhi script text. The script is similar to other Indo-Aryan languages. It's not a beginner’s app and is more suitable for people who grew up in Punjab learning the Punjabi language in schools or for someone who knows the basics of Punjabi language. Someone just getting started on learning Punjabi will have a hard time around this app.
It offers writing systems that are the best way to improve your grammar and vocabulary. This is where this app shines. While there are no lessons or courses, you have to be your own tutor.
This app is also helpful for copying, pasting, and translating something into Punjabi script. You can also share the written text with your friends or a tutor to double-check it.
Learn Punjabi is one of the apps you can use if you are an absolute beginner, as it teaches the Punjabi language from the very basics. The lessons are divided into bits where learning letters or numbers are separated from one another.
The interface is very user-friendly and fairly simple to use. You start off by learning the alphabet, and then you move on to words, colors, and more. You can not only learn words, but you also get their written form in Gurmukhi script, which is great for Punjabi writing too.
There is an in-built progress tracker in the app which lets you know how many bits of the content you have covered. The content progress is also divided into different sections of numbers, letters, etc.
Overall this is an amazing app for anyone from beginner to intermediate level who wants to get good at the Punjabi alphabet and words.
What makes this app to learn Punjabi unique from the other apps is its gamification. Learning the Punjabi language has never been so fun before. This app focuses primarily on North Indian Punjabi (an Indo-Aryan language).
If you get bored easily, this app is for you as it isn’t based on lectures or lessons. Every learning bit is like playing a game.
The cons of this app are that this isn’t available for Ios devices and supports only android devices. Furthermore, there is no record available of your learning progress. The lessons are also not divided properly, so one might get confused easily.
If you are someone who wants to learn Punjabi Gurmukhi on the go and have some basic Punjabi knowledge, then this is the app for you.
Out of all the apps to learn Punjabi, this is the only app based on video and audio lessons for more than thirty-four languages. What makes this app unique is that there are actual teachers who are behind the lessons, and the information is far more trustworthy than any other app.
You can start to learn Punjabi online on this app even if you are a complete beginner, as it has levels of lessons from complete beginner to intermediate to advanced.
Innovative is a free app, and unlike the other apps, it is available for both ios and android. The interface is user-friendly and simple to use. The app is also frequently updated to fix bugs and issues.

Pimsleur is a great app to improve your conversational skills in Punjabi. Conversational skills can be hard to learn when learning a new language or if you get a job where Punjabi is the official language.
This app is based on audio lessons that stretch to about thirty minutes daily. You can hear these lessons anywhere in your home or on the way to work.
The words in the audio are repeated after an interval to improve your pronunciation and memory. This makes you fluent in the daily interactions in Punjabi that you will have.
This app is great for someone who wants to learn Punjabi for everyday communication/conversational skills. While it is great for conversational skills, the app doesn’t provide many basics of the Punjabi language, so you might want to get on this app after learning some basics first.

When you select a tutor, you can schedule your private lessons with them in the itaki virtual classroom or skype, which differentiates it from all the other language learning apps we saw earlier.
If you are new to italki you will get discounted rates too, which is great.
If you are someone who learns better by having a tutor and a classroom setting, then this is the app for you. Personalized lessons about basic words and phrases in Punjabi would help you overcome your difficulties and focus on you primarily.

After that, you can get a personalized lesson plan from the tutor and practice your speaking skills over video as well. The app has many native speakers who can help you with your speaking skills.

The app is available for both ios and android devices and is great for learning languages other than Punjabi too.
