Not a good app for new learners
I teach Cherokee to preschool children on the Qualla Boundary in NC (aka EBCI). I downloaded this app hoping to expand my vocabulary & was really looking forward to the quiz part of the app. I took the colors quiz just to check it out because I know all of my colors. Almost every color was spelled incorrectly (phonetically). And some of them were completely wrong. I am not sure of the authenticity of this app but I would not recommend it for any Cherokee learner.
No audio, no accent guidance
I was hoping for something with audio pronunciation...remembering all of the new sounds is a bit of a challenge. Also, the are no accent marks in the text to indicate emphasis in verbal pronunciation. Makes it tough to speak it, even if you remember all of the sounds. Good start, though.
Do not get
If you really want to learn Cherokee do not get this app. I got it just to keep myself on my toes and quiz myself every now and then. I tutor Cherokee and the majority of the words throughout this app are incorrect. So my advise is do t get it. Great that it has a quiz section if only the content was correct.
