What's New in Version 1.4.6
I'm really enjoying it so far, and im learning lots! :D if youre a beginner at Spanish, I would recommend this app
I’m a beginner Spanish student. I’ve been using Duolingo (love it) and complimenting it with Memrise for vocabulary flash cards based on the Duolingo lessons. The Memrise app directed me to this app and I downloaded it just for the curiosity factor.
I did a couple of CatSpanish lessons and came back to the app several days later. I did a review test and found that I just instinctively knew the answers, even writing out entire phrases. This is really early days, so I don’t want to attribute too much to it, but I was intrigued enough to download the paid version.
What I like about this app versus Duolingo is that it is more oriented to building your conversational Spanish vocabulary. Duolingo does a fabulous job of building your understanding of the language logically, but without forcing grammar rules down your throat. DL also gets you speaking with audio feedback tests (dubious accuracy, but at least they force you to try). CatSpanish on the other hand is teaching me to memorize phrases with grammar hints thrown in. It’s fun and addictive and probably well suited to someone who wants to get some Spanish under their belt before a holiday. So far, I haven’t been prompted to speak any Spanish, which I don’t like so not 5 stars.
For a serious Spanish student, this is a nice way to keep the learning fun using your phone but complement it with another app for better results.
No way to skip ahead
No way to skip ahead if you've already completed the first lessons or are familiar with basic Spanish.
