Best way to learn.
The app is considerably cheaper than the new CDs so I went with it for Polish, French and German after trying the "start" CDs.
I used the French CD the day before a trip to France and having not spoken French since school over a decade ago, I found myself confident enough to use it for basic cases. This was a revelation for me, given the drawn out and complex nature of all other language learning methods.
Having only done the Foundation courses so far (I hope they add the advanced soon!) I would expect that this does not negate the need for learning the technical parts of a language, but instead gives you a platform from which you can be confident that you know how to speak it.
The sessions are also enjoyable and help any car journey go faster. Other reviews for these apps are right in the controls being a bit basic and I would have liked them to have removed the frequent sound of Michel's saliva from the German series! I also had issues trying to post my flash card results to Facebook - not that mind people don't see my scores.
I have already recommended the app to many friends and hope they continue to make these for more languages!!
A good help/start
I've been learning Polish vocab for several years and had basic conversation but never learnt any proper grammar or had lessons. This 8 hour course was a great help to me, I now understand simple things that have passed me by for years.
There are a few mistakes in the exercises, which can confuse you and I thought was pretty poor as they' be an easy fix. There are some overly complicated ("colloquial" things, which are not used in normal conversational Polish these days) included in the final 2 hours, which are confusing and don't seem to fit in with the rest of the course.
Overall pretty good and easy to follow though.
This would get 5 stars for content, but presentation gets overall 1 star. If I could go lower i would. I paid and downloaded the first "paying" part of the course only to find it will crash every evening and fail to store the download. This results in me having to re download every time I want to listen to it. Sort this bug urgently
