French made easy for Kids

I lived in France as a child and know how important it is to learn the language from a native French speaker. I bought this Outstanding App for my 14 year old son who has been learning French for 2 years in a Southern California school. The kids of his generation especially like educational products made for mobile devices. Thank you Mirai for taking the time to create an impressive product that helps kids learn a language at their own pace in today's fast paced society.

Very good language app

I initially downloaded the Lite version to try it out, after the first few lessons I decided to pay for the full version.
This App is not for someone who wants to learn a few expressions for the next trip to France. Instead it takes you steps by steps on how to speak the language.
I found this to be very thoughtfully designed app, esp for someone who really want to learn the language.

Best French app

This is the best French learning app I've tried on the App Store. It's great to hear native French pronunciations for all the words and have everything explained clearly in English. Really well organized and nicely designed. All round superb app. I can really recommend it.
