App is buggy for iOS


The app itself is a great tool. I have learned a lot about the language of choice with this app however a fatal flaw in its design is how incredibly sensitive the choices are. When I click to hear what it was that was said, the interface thinks I’m selecting a choice and I lose the 100% chance for the chapter. All because I wanted to confirm what was being relayed in the lesson. So many times this has frustrated me. Recently however the app has a new problem. When I’m given a few choices but only one phrase, sometimes (and this is very frequent) it doesn’t play the audio at all. Not even when I press the button to play what was said again. So I have to select a random choice to have the app tell me I got it wrong so I can hear what the actual audio is to match it accordingly. I give this app 3/5 stars cause the app still works, it’s just these are two incredibly awful and hindering bugs that need to be fixed. Once fixed, definitely a 5 star app. A lot of learning, a lot of content, integration with Apple Watch, extra listen aloud content, it’s just an incredible resource. Even better if you’re using it online.

I love Rosetta Stone, yet it’s so hard to fully love it


I tried Spanish (Latin America) before, and I really liked it, so I decided to give Japanese a try. I’ve learned it once really long time ago, so I know how to write and read the easy stuffs and understand some vocabulary. However, Rosetta Stone’s Japanese course isn’t that good to be honest. First, the lessons sometimes tell me I’m wrong only to tell me I am correct when I press the same “wrong” answer. Second, the implied “definition” of some words are difficult to understand. For example, I still don’t understand in what context the words かのじょ and かれ are used, or what exactly they mean. I can understand it has something to do with female and male, but other than that I’m lost.

I just started re-learning and finished Lesson 1, so I can’t say much about the full lessons, but I will try and stick to it. Hopefully, I will get to achieve what I hoped to learn (especially on verb tenses).

Excellent immersion app


I like the program and looked for an app and found this. It’s fantastic. The ONLY difference I noticed is that the app won’t allow me to pause the mic during the recitation. I have a minor case of APD (Auditory Processing Disorder) and out in the world I tend to lip read to ensure what I heard makes sense (it's kinda like hearing dyslexia). So, on my computer, I pause and read so I can process the correct response. With immersion, they throw words and concepts at you that you don’t know. This is better in a lot of ways because I’m not trying to translate on the fly. That said, during the recitation or response sections, it gets super confusing for me without being able to pause.

So. Overall, excellent. Hope they add the ability to pause to the app at some point in the near future.
