Ratings and Reviews

Best European Portuguese App


I’ve been using this app for several months now, as a supplement to tutoring lessons and some other methods. I have to say, I think this is by far the best app I’ve found (and I’ve purchased many). I live in Portugal full-time and really need to learn the language in order to obtain full residency. I find the mix between flash cards and “lessons” (and even hearing other students struggle and repeat) really works with my learning style (I really struggle with retention). I hope they continue to provide more as I’m already nervous about what to do when the last lesson is complete! Excellent work and I’ve experienced nary a bug. 😊

Application is unresponsive

Portuguese learner 2

I am not able to play the lessons, the buttons to play or forward don't appear or don't respond. The display of text is also fuzzy and the type is white on a white background, so hard to decipher. It seems that the app is riddled with bugs and needs an urgent fix! My advice, don't buy until the issues are resolved.



1. Annoying slow and difficult to speed up due to unresponsive controls also this is not Brazilian Portuguese because as a beginner I find learning both together only complicates things and intro is way too long why can't they just write it down?
