I sought Earworms out after a few years of sporadic attempts to learn a new language failed quite miserably. After downloading the free taster I was attracted by the fact that this is bite sized and very thorough. Very easy listening and I don't tire of it being played over and over again. I bought the Spanish app and straight away noticed that the tracks are all embedded in the app. I wanted to play them through my iPhone whilst running so emailed Earworms to see if the tracks were available for this purpose. Almost instantly I'd got a reply and they sent me the tracks by mp3. For the money I paid this is outstanding customer service. Thank you Mark Clarke.
I'm hooked on the tracks in that they are very small milestones. Each next phrase is exactly what I need to be able to say when I next visit Spain. I will be purchasing more and I need the French one too. I won't hesitate to buy the Earworms version.
I love the fact that they focus on the most important “Sentence Structure” which most language learning systems seem to pass on. I found I was able to have a better understanding of Cantonese and even build my own sentences.
Being dyslexic learning a new language to me is a nightmare, I can never remember anything and it's sooo frustrating but within a couple of week I was able to impress my cantonese speaking friend :) It's so easy yet so effective!!'
To me this app is simply AMAZING, a must for any beginner!!!
Wonderful way to learn BUT ...
... the inability to have it running in the background is very annoying and not very user friendly. If the Developers can sort that out then it would be worthy of 5 stars for sure.
