Fun app for language learning


The app is very similar to Duolingo and even though it doesn’t have my first choice of language I still decided to get it to learn some Italian. The first free lesson was really fun so I decided to upgrade. Initially I had some issues with the upgrade working on my phone. Finally customer support got back with me. I had to delete the app data in the settings app. After that, I can finally use the premium version. Hope I learn some Italian and hope Hindi will be added at some point in time.

Great springboard

What it does best: teaches gender of words, challenges your speed of memory and my favorite bit, rates your pronunciation. Practice, practice! The games are engaging, addictive. Definitely worth the premium version for a beginner looking to get off the ground with their new language, and as a refresher for the more experienced!

Loving it - German learning


I’ve already blew through Duolingo. I got this app and I love it! The games are fun and engaging - the lessons are teaching me more vocabulary than Duolingo did. I really enjoy the little facts about Germany too. I highly recommend this app and 8.99 isn’t bad per month for quality learning.
