Customer Reviews



I have used this app for over a year in my classes. It is a wonderful tool to help students pronounce the words Steph I step and to check your spelling as often as they need to! What a wonderful tool for any educator who wants to teach their child the phonetic system as well as pronunciation!

French Words


Wonderful app. Can hear the word and hear and SEE the individual sounds. Perfect for visual learners. Nicely interactive. Wish the French pronunciation was louder.

Great app for English speaker to learn some French

Awesome:-) Apple

I know zero French but this app removes all the intimidation of trying a new language, well, some new words from a new language at least. The graphics looks cute and is probably designed for kids. But the app is definitely appropriate for adults too. Great job.
