Ratings and Reviews
I started with the free version, which was good- you get a 5 min session per day. A good little selection of activities to learn and select the right words/phrases. Can learn any of the languages they have, but only 5 mins per day. After a few weeks i upgraded to premium lifetime membership as it was half price, and I love it. I’m currently learning french, and plan to learn hindi after that. With the upgraded version, you can choose how long you want your session to last (5,10, 15 mins, or unlimited). You can do as many sessions as you like in a day then. The Dojo is good for going over words you have already learnt, so that you don’t forget them, and it finds the words you struggled with in the sessions so that you can practice them more. I love the way the streaks work, you can miss a day then practice again the day after and still keep your streak alive. I tend to practice about 3-4 times a week, and I’m still able to easily achieve good streaks. I like how you can see your progress as well with the word counter (novice, tourist, then conversationalist). It’s nice and easy to use, and it has a positive and encouraging feel to it, which makes it more fun to use. I’m using this as a foundation before going onto sentences etc, as i use to use duolingo but found it a bit overwhelming so this is great as a first step in learning a language. Then from here you can easily expand your knowledge. :)
Almost everything I could ask for
What is the title says I think this app is amazing. Whether some people believe or not that this is optimal learning the spaced repetition system has worked great for me in the past I find that one exposed to my target languages, I am able to recognise vocabulary and understand its meaning but this is all this app is just vocabulary. so I really recommend if you want to learn, sentence, structures and other common rules that you buy a textbook or take tutoring. about the languages they have to offer I feel it’s a double edge sword they offer some great Language is the other playful like Duolingo just don’t offer specifically I’m talking about Thai but there are other languages I would like to see on there specifically for me, the khazak language is a big one, but it surprised me to see Irish be added, and things such as that. So lastly, I will talk about the things I don’t like tying back to my last point I wish the languages they added one more frequent. I understand it’s a process but they are very quick with adding new topics so maybe new languages on the horizon quicker? And lastly, this app crashes a lot, and when it crashes really is the only way of fixing it is to reinstall it and then next time you launch it will crash again and when I asked them about it, but you told me to change my spoken language from British English or American English and this works for a little moment and has now stopped again so please fix this.
My favourite language learning tool!
This is the most effective language learning tool I’ve found since restarting my language learning last year. Probably because it is so easy and quick to use that I actually use it! It’s easy and enjoyable to pick up when you’re waiting for a bus or the kettle to boil. It’s very active learning so it holds your attention. It’s an attractive and simple interface . And if you do your review dojo, it works! On a recent holiday to France I heard and used words I learnt in the app, it was so rewarding to see my work pay off. I think this is because of the staged repetition and the use of sound at the same time as seeing the words - I was hearing the voice of the reader in my head on holiday! There’s lots of encouraging little comments too , which I find boost your mood. Best of all , there’s no tedious inputting , it’s all there for you already (AnkiApp is great but I never actually get round to putting new stuff in hence nothing new to learn at that bus-stop!) Plus you get to choose what you learn, so you’re motivated to learn and review words you’ll actually need/ want. I thought this app was expensive at first but now I think it’s good value for money.
