Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded about half a dozen language apps yesterday, mostly German and 2 like this, featuring several languages. The other with several languages boasts using native speakers, and indeed each language has a new speaker.
This is the only app of those half dozen that I deleted, and it was because I'm not sure how accurate the pronunciation is. The first thing I did was set the book to German and French (languages I've studied, with German being fresher), and listen to the words. I'm not sure how to put it, but the German sounded too soft to me, and the word Kälte was pronounced as kalt (that last e should make an A sound).
Now, this is just going by the free version, where all you have are single words, and I think if all you have are single words than each one should be spot on. It concerns me that others or myself are hearing the words from new languages incorrectly, so I deleted it, included where the stress should be placed.
Also, the music on the game is louder than the voice over for the words, at least in German.
Fun and easy to learn more words
I tried this app on my phone because I need to buy a birthday gift for a 2 year old who is already playing with his dads iPad. I had so much fun playing and learning new words that I can't wait to give it as a gift! I book was easy and the animations where so cute. The game was a little challenging because I tried the French version and don't know a word but it was fun to guess and learn that was too. Ill have to let you know what my little 2 year old thinks once he starts playing. Thanks for such a fun and creative way to learn words a variety of languages!
Great app, good multi-user, multilevel
It's early days still but I agree with other reviews about it's being well-designed in every respect.
I'm using this to both do a little fun variety in my Mandarin Chinese skills, where were at 6- yrs study level long time ago AND to help my autistic son do some English language reinforcement & development. So very versatile.
As to pronounciation, Mandarin is spot on, and said slowly enough for beginners to really hear all the sounds and tone of the word. No faults w pronunciation. Altogether well done!
