Ratings and Reviews

Problem with nouns

fjdkslajfkldsajklfdsjal;kfjds

WordPower’s great strengths are that you can hear a native speaker say the word and that there are sample sentances so you can learn how the work is used.
BUT it has one very large mistake. In Sweidh nouns belong to one of two genders - common for the en form or neuter for the ett form - which also determine the declension of adjectives. For example; a car (en bil), a house, (ett hus). But in WordPower they are mostly wrong an most of the nouns state that they are neutral when, in fact, about ¾ are common. This is serious because the gender must be learned along with the noun. No Swedish native speaker will misunderstand you when you use the wrong gender but they will certainly know that you “aren’t from Sweden”.

Almost there!!

I am a linguist and this program did help me with memorizing words. However, it would have gotten a full 5 stars if it included the definite an indefinite articles, because what's the point of knowing a word if you can't say "the" or "a" in front of it? Also a tutorial of simple grammar would have pushed this app over the top. All of this is completely doable, I hope a future update brings these changes.

Wonderful App

This was well worth the $10. It is a great study aid, and the ability to hear, read, and see a picture of the word helps immensely. I've only studied Swedish for three months, and I am well on my way to fluency due to this app. Bravo!
