We've addressed an issue in our Fill in the Blank game. Additionally, we have adjusted the keyboard so that it no longer interferes with the answer box.

Ratings and Reviews

Great app, but it has technical issues.


Specifically, you may find that the audio feature of the flashcard exercises may not work due to a technical flaw in the app. It may happen that you’ll press the button to trigger the recitation of the phrase that corresponds with the applicable photo, but the recitation will not trigger.

The company’s tech support reps were reasonably responsive to my inquiry for help, but couldn’t resolve the issue. They required me to delete the app (along with my recorded progress) and reinstall the app, but this didn’t solve the problem.

Apps do not work


All Living Language apps show nothing but a frozen screen.

Living Language Italian-Love it!


I love the flexibility of this app for on the road on iPad, iPhone, supplemental lesson books and the conversational organization of the material. I had completed only 4 lessons of elementary italian before an unexpected trip to Italy and was able to use what I learned and be understood in a region that spoke no English. I was actually asked directions by locals! Couple of minor hitches on language games on iPhone/Pad. Am on intermediate now. Like it better than Rosetta Stone!
