Clever system - intuitive and pictorial

Uses patterns - conveyed by clever series of pictures with overlapping themes - so that one quickly works out what the verbs, nouns etc mean. No English is used - so not based on translation. The lessons seem short - which is less intimidating. I have been using it regularly for a few months and my positive impression persists.
A few minor things could perhaps be improved. Occasionally the voice recognition seems to fail ones very best efforts when the student needs to repeat a phrase. This is even when one is saying it exactly as required whilst at other times it is incredibly forgiving of a distinctly sub-standard efforts. Also, periodic end of section review exercises have proved too difficult to be useful for me - as much because you have to guess what person X would say or do in a given situation. This is then not a linguistic but more a predictive logic challenge. Finally, the system that is supposed to keep track of where you are often seems to reset if you switch away from RS to some other app. No problem - you can get back to where you need to be via the Learn button at the bottom of the main page for the language you are learning.
Overall though, it seems to be effective and - having tried out a few of them - it is the best on-line system for language learning that I have come across: this is why I have given 5 stars.

So far so good but resources could be better

I thought I would learn German again having last studied it almost 50 years ago. I started as a beginner and so far it is managing to get me speaking German again. It is a lot of repeat words/phrases but it does hammer home the message. The sessions are coming 30 minute chunks which more than manageable.
Where I do find it disappointing is the lack of resources such as a dictionary. I’m not trying to run ahead of the course but sometimes you need a reminder of some of the words you have come across that session. If there is one then it’s not intuitive as to finding it.
The other minor gripe is I am restricted to one user. I have purchased a lifetime membership (not cheap) which restricts you to a single user. It appears if I had bought a CD (who buys CDs these days?) I could have up to five users. I was hoping my wife could restart her Spanish.
Overall I’m happy at the moment so that’s the reason for the rating

Has potential but surprisingly buggy

I tho k the app has potential. It’s maybe not the most effective way to learn a language and the lessons move quite slowly in terms of actual practical vocabulary, but when it works it’s fun and convenient which offsets that. The big problem is the number of bugs in the app. Frequently there are network error pop ups despite there being no network problems. These kick you out of your current exercise and it becomes a race to see if you can complete it before the pop up voids you’re progress. Similarly if you go out of an exercise and press continue, it can warn you that it will reset the progress (despite there being a separate button for that). Super frustrating. Also the voice recognition sometimes simply doesn’t work either complaining about problems with the microphone or responding differently to the same pronunciation. If the pronunciation is genuinely wrong, then there’s no hint at which part you’re getting wrong...sometimes I’ve stumbled through a sentence, massacring it entirely and got a pass. Sometimes got stuck on a single syllable which then worked fine in the next example. I want to persevere with it, but for the price tag on the course I expected UX of a higher quality.
