Awesome app for a great price!
This app is similar to Rosetta Stone but has a lot of things different that make it unique. You learn language recognition, reading and writing. Only thing I notice is that the app does not correct your pronunciation. I'm on day 12 of learning Polish and a unique feature is that it had me go back to do older lessons to keep the "bars" full. I have recommended it friends who are now using it to learn Spanish, Japanese, and Hungarian. A decent selection of languages to choose from! I only wish it covered a bit more basics in the beginning like the alphabet, numbers, and colors first and also go over ending changes for different pronouns. Even a quick overview would be helpful.
Let's you choose how much you want to do a day and reminds you. Not exactly sure what the "lingonots" are for but you get them for completing things so far I've notice you can purchase owl outfits. Assuming more will come from that. Adds are not overbearing which helps me continue using it.
A fun somewhat depressing screen pops up every so often to let you know how fluent you are in the language. Had 1% and 2% show. Obviously after 12 days was not even expecting to be close to fluent but it made me laugh when it came by. In 2 years I should be good to go! :-P
Think that's all overall great app! Will definitely continue using.
Great class aid
Easy to use, goes fairly well with introduction level Spanish classes, and although you CAN pay for health, you are given the option to practice past vocabulary to earn back health. This application is truly free education oriented and utilizes rewarding review and learning methods. As someone trying to learn the language for her boyfriends family (taking it very seriously) this app is very fun and relaxing as well as highly beneficial.
I've been won over!
At first I thought this was going to be another silly sly app. After listing to an interview with the MacArthur genius award winning founder I decided to give it a try. It is marvelous-- at least marvelously fun but I think effective, too. No ads so far. Only hope they will expand to more difficult languages, wondering if the method will work. Recommended!
