Great! And infuriating.

This is a great way to learn languages. Really fast, enjoyable and effective. The price of the lessons is steep for an app, but a bargain compared to a standard course. The app does have some issues. Every time my iphone syncs I have to download the lessons again. This is particularly annoying the further I get. I now need to download 4 hours of audio when I plug my iphone in (as it auto-syncs on wireless). Thankfully I have a large internet quota!

Expensive but worth it!

Have bought and tried a few apps with the result that I learn the odd word and forget it pretty quickly. What's great about this app is the method, it builds based on commonalities with English and before I knew it Portuguese started to make sense and is not difficult to remember. My portuguese partner is amazed at the speed of progress and after just 4 hours we are starting to have some conversation which is great. The downside is the whole eight hours will cost around $40 but I think it's been worth it!
