In celebration of Mes Chamorro and to promote the Chamorro language, the Young Men’s League of Guam has just released a mobile app that provides a Chamorro word of the day to help users learn to speak the Chamorro language.
Download the iOS and Android versions below.
I just came across this site while searching for more Chamorro language apps. The site itself has some language lessons, but what caught my attention is their promotion of their language app that they say will be coming March 2015. Check them out at LearnChamoru.com.
Here’s another great dictionary app by a Chamorro developer. The app description page says you’re able to use the dictionary offline and search through the database.
Dangkolo na si Yu’us ma’ase’ to Siñot Aaron Matanane for providing us with another dictionary app option. It’s always great to know there are Chamorro developers out there looking to further the cause of preserving the Chamorro language.
Please check out the Chamorro Dictionary app in the Google Play Store.
Here’s a great Chamorro dictionary app by Chamorro developer BJ Peter Dela Cruz. The app description page says that there are over 9,400 words in its database.
It also says you will be able to:
- Listen to Chamorro words being spoken
- Search its database in both English and Chamorro
- Add your own examples and notes to help you learn.
- Add words that do not exist in the database.
The feature set looks good, but I’ll need to try the app for myself. This app is definitely something worth exploring if you’re serious about learning the language.

Anyone who has undertaken learning Chamorro will understand when I say that we have a limited number of language resources and to have online blogs and even apps like this is really a big help to all. So kudos to Mr. Dela Cruz for creating this app.
