Customer Reviews


This app is phenomenal! There are a variety of languages to choose from, all of which provide you with a lot of knowledge and this app also has a system which tracks how long you can remember certain things from a language! It is truly amazing!

In the new update, we can see that there are LOADS more languages! However, I am studying Urdu in school and I need some extra tutoring on this. I have been waiting for this language to come out for a very long time now, and I’m quite disappointed to know that it still isn’t here yet.

In the translation section when you’re picking your language courses, there is an Urdu translation, but no Urdu course, which is a shame. Urdu is quite a complicated language as it is all mainly based on sound formation and it would be great if you could add this in! Nevertheless, this app is still very useful! I definitely recommend this app to you if you’re looking for extra tutoring or if you just want to learn bits and pieces for a certain language! :)

Absolutely brilliant!

I’ve used this app to learn Spanish and Dutch and have now moved onto Romanian. The health meter is really clever - you get five lives and every time you make a mistake in a lesson, you lose one. can then do a swift practice in order to reinstate the life again. This way you keep practicing a great mix of the older stuff while you pick up new bits...So I’m finding that more is sticking in my head. You move a bit slower, but understand and retain more. Genius! The group leaderboard for my guild keeps me doing that extra lesson everyday and provides support and people to practice with while the lessons themselves are a good length to fit into a coffee break. My only niggle is that I’d love a mini grammar section to consult with verb conjugations and noun declensions so I could swot up in my own time but that’s a minor thing! Lifesaver app for anyone looking to learn a new language :)

Very good and easy to use

It’s a really good app I recommend to anyone who wants to learn a language fast. With the heart system if you run out you can practice and earn your hearts back. The neat layout it just stunning please don’t change it. With the adds lovely fitted in. And iv learnt so much in just two days. I recommend to keep practicing and when your practice you don’t lose hearts so that’s good. :DD by the way the heart system isn’t like most apps where you have to like watch adds and stuff, no much easier
