Ratings and Reviews
Great learning tool. Update to five stars
I love the teaching methods, especially learning to recognize spoken phrases.
There are great explanations of the grammar.
The videos explain Spanish unique use of words in different situations
****** Caution: When watching the videos, keep your iPad in vertical position. Then you will be able to see the written version of the video at bottom of screen as well as the return to main menu at top of page. If I held my iPad horizontally, I only saw the video and could not find a way to exit the video.
Ummm.... IT KEEPS ON CRASHING!!!!!!
Ok, it keeps on crashing every time I get on that app!! (Maybe it's because my iPad, that is why I put a 4 stars...... :(
The app glitches some but it may be my wifi. But the language seems to be pretty dead on.
I was almost fluent in Chinese, and I was just brushing up on my skills. I've read the reviews about the awful audio, but when I listen it's seem to be pretty dead on. For people learning the language for the first time, The English lettering next to the Chinese character is pinyin. While pinyin may have the same characteristics as English, it is very different. For those of you who do not understand pinging, I would trust the audio or learn pinyin. I don't know about the rest of the languages, but I assume it is the same situation.
