Teaching and Expanding

I started working with the Language app when it first came out so that I could enhance my Russian studies to be able to speak with interested ones at the doors. Now I’m in an area where Spanish is a primary language. Once again I’ve turned to the language app to enhance my ministry skills. AND you’ve added so much more to the app. Thank you for all the work you’re doing to inform and expand the teaching of God ‘s Word to those who might be overlooked otherwise.


Truly a blessing.

Thank you brothers and sisters for making this lovely app for learning different languages. I know it takes a while for anyone to add many different languages to an app, especially when there are so many, but I cannot wait for any future updates. One that I would look forward to most is sign language, since I’m learning that at the moment. Once again thank you and, as my title says, this is truly a blessing from Jehovah. 😊🙏🏻

I could give way more than just 5 stars if it were possible. I’m still learning to understand how it works but thanks to it I’ve learned a lot and I have been able to perfect my English and make a faster progress at learning my third language: Korean. Keep using the talents Jehovah has given you for good things as always! May you be blessed and rewarded for all the hard work you do for us. I’m grateful to Jehovah and you all!
