Thank you so much!

My native language is Spanish and I live outside of an English speaking country. It was very hard for me to really get the different sounds of English language until now. Thank you very, very much!

Doesn't work on my iPad

I have a late 2012 iPad mini, Mac OS 9.3.5 . So this app will not display properly. I mean that it has the portrait and landscape modes displaying backwards when I rotate my iPad. A large portion or the right or left hand of the chart missing in the display. I am not happy

Is the best👍🏻
