The best language course app out there

Very well structured app that knows how language learning should be done. It won’t suffice as the sole source but it will do well as your main learning reference. Works well combined with listening to french podcasts/tv shows and using iTalkie for practising conversation. With these and some effort every day you can probably reach conversational level of language understanding within 6 months.

I’ve tried many language learning apps and Bussuu is by my opinion the best. However to get full learning experience, you have to pay for premium version, but they offer you a -50% off, so it’s worth it. :)

This app is weak

Here are only some of the problems that make the experience dull when compared to paid and even free competition:
- Still have not found how to turn off the annoying sound of buttons.
- Problematic swipe, you often have to swipe more than in other apps.
- Bad assessment of your level means that you will face up words that have not been covered and are advanced. You will feel perplexed because in some situations there is no translation to English when severly needed.
- After every update you have to dowload every lesson one by one - are you kiddin me?
- Somewhat mediocre sound quality, i can not recommend for Chinese for example.
- Totally wrong progress system - I know one French word ans it displays I am 7% fluent.
- Still annoys to rate, every update, so here I come,
