Ratings and Reviews

Helped me with the fundamentals


I went to Paris and learned my expanding French vocabulary was not much use for conversations, as my pronunciations were fundamentally flawed. This app has been great to help me learn the basics of French pronunciation, especially the vowels. Merci beaucoup !

Not downloading


I've tried to download this app for the past hour, and I wasn't able to. I would like to know if it's because I am located in the United States. It's tells me "unable to download"



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!
