    This app is great for learning vocab. The way the exercises are laid out are perfect for retaining new words. This will not have you learning grammar or formulating sentences the same as another app or taking classes but it definitely has an edge for learning new words quicker than anything else. Perfect for a traveler like myself who wants to learn some vocabulary quickly so you can have 1 word convos haha
  • Amazing

    I’ve left a positive review on here before, but I enjoy this app so much I decided to leave a new one! The words of the language that you are learning are spoken so clearly. It’s easy to match your voice to theirs. And if you have trouble deciphering the sounds of the word, you can click on it again to hear a much slower version of it that will help you to break down the sounds to then say them accurately. The pictures are very well done, too. You can always tell what the word is by the picture that is represented. The pictures are not filled with a bunch of different colors, which would be very distracting. Instead, the entire interface is all one color, which is much more smooth and easy on the eyes. You start out with just simple words, then move on to eventually learning phrases. The reason this is a good thing, is because you have to have vocabulary before you can speak. Once you know what the words are, it is then so much easier to put them into sentences. It is also much easier and a lot more fun to just learn the words first. The vocabulary words are the foundation to any language. Forming sentences will come later. If you try learning the vocabulary along with the grammar, your words could get mixed up because they are as new in your mind as the grammar is. But if the words are concrete in your memory, then it is much easier later on to just put those words in the right order. Watching videos and listening to music in your target language for a while should help with knowing how to form sentences, once you know the meanings of the words. And the other thing that I like is that the words are all sorted by category. This helps your brain to know where to store all these new words. Word association is made quickly and easily when you learn all food-related words together, then all clothing-related words, so forth and so on. They make more sense in your mind and you are able to store them in your memory in groups that make sense. I’ve read that learning a new language is best done when visualing a certain place for each word to go, and that the brain’s memory is like a palace. So if you store all the food items that you’re learning into a virtual kitchen in your mind, then you should be able to easily recall those food items when visiting your virtual kitchen, for example. So there you have it. I think the company has done an amazing job at creating this app. They add new words all the time. The app is very reasonably priced, and you can still learn several new words without paying for a monthly subscription; it may just take a little longer is all. But slow and steady still makes it to the end. And keep in mind that learning a new language is one of the most rewarding things you can do with your time, even if it’s only five minutes a day. Eventually you’ll know enough words to be able to understand the people, the music, and the movies of a whole other language. That means access to things and people you wouldn’t have had access to before. You may meet your new best friend or discover your new favorite TV series once you’ve learned a fair amount of your new language. And then having that new friend or book or TV show will then help you learn even more of the language, until eventually you reach the point of being conversational (able to converse) and then fluent in your new language. You’ll be able to travel to new countries with confidence and ease. It’s been one of the most fun things I could have ever done as a hobby.
