Great way to learn languages

Having tried several paid subscription apps, I have settled on this one over the last couple of years as I find it is the one that is easiest to progress through and caters to numerous learning styles.

I would love it if this app :

1. offered options to automatically delete listened to episodes and download the next one or two episodes for off-line listening.

2. Offered an easy way to switch between multiple languages for those that subscribe to more than one language.

3. Offered smart cards on the mobile app that repeated based on the lessons already completed, and also possibly on the previous correct / false answers (cf duolingo).

4. Some sort of long press / shortcut function - eg play next episode / library / word bank.

5. Maybe in app feed of the ‘daily dose’ app rather than having two apps for subscribers.

Having subscribed to the premium plan, the app is holding back the feeling of value for money, not the content - which is first class.

The Urdu classes available through urdupod101 are the best materials I have found online for learning to read and listen to Urdu. I’ve found the depth of information and the way it is presented on the site to be both engaging and progressive, perfect for a learner trying to pick this difficult language up during lockdown.

The app itself seems to have less functionality than the website version though, so I tend to use the browser rather than the app. And both unfortunately have several bugs with the way the Urdu script is presented, and have lots of typos and errors throughout the lessons. I guess this is still better than the alternatives, but it would be even better if the bugs could be addressed and the lessons had a good editor look through to pick out the (every other sentence or so) typos that can be a bit distracting.

Great app for language learning

I love this app because they not only teach you vocab and phrases in the context of real life scenarios, they also explain the grammar and cultural context so you actually understand it. They break down the steps to be very simple, and the notes and resources for each lesson also help you dig into it more afterwards.

For some people it might be enough to use apps like Duolingo, but if you aren't someone who can just "pick up" a new language through the magic of osmosis, Innovative is a much more comprehensive, and enjoyable, learning tool. I've used it for both Hungarian and Spanish.
