Ratings and Reviews
before localization awesome
what is localization? I am a polyglot wannabe and did not dare to update as I dont want auto-chooses my language as thats flawed for me. One day german is native, the next day it could be russian or english. (sorry hard to type on my phone).
the app works well for hearing and seeing the item in two languages. Not interactive like duolingo or quizlet.
I purchased the extra words on the app and when my child clicks on items instead of having an instructor say the word in English on one side and another instructor saying the word in Spanish on the other it pops up with red x and doesn’t say the word and will go on to the next activity. Not what I paid for. Any way to fix this ?
I’ve recently purchased this App, and it looks very nice. But there is a huge problem. In Hebrew, as in English as well, all presented words in the application pronounced with definite article. It is not correct while you are learning words. For example, fish 🐠 in Hebrew is dug, but not hadag, sun is shemesh, but not hashemesh, etc. And ALL words are the same, incorrect for learning.
The same in English. Fish is a fish. In sentence it might be a fish or the fish. But the word is “fish”, not “thefish” like in the App.
Developer Response ,
Hi - This was a difficult decision as this is an app that deals with many languages. You point out that it is not necessary to have "the" in English and Hebrew, which indeed seems unnecessary - but only because both languages are the same on that front. However other languages are different.
In French, Spanish and German "the" translates into several possibilities - 'the fish' is 'el pescado' and 'the girl' is 'la nina'. Learning a word without knowing whether it is el/la or der/die/das is like learning half the word, and must absolutely be included. And it would have been incorrect to translate 'el pescado' into 'fish'.
On the other end of the spectrum, Russians, Japanese and Mandarin do not have articles at all - and for them learning that the word fish rarely comes on its own (only with the, a or as a multiple) is also useful.
In my experience when I tested this with French / English, it has not hindered learning or comprehension - children naturally pick up on this repetition and just keep in the the back of their minds and understand that the word is "fish" not "thefish".
Once again, this was a difficult decision, and I am really sorry if this impacts your enjoyment of the app. I will add a notice within the app to explain this.
