Big fan of this app, the method and how simple it is to use. I’ve noticed previous reviews have said that they lost their purchases and have not been able to re-download. The app actually has a button on the information page to restore previous purchases. Also, if prompted to re-download and pay, once you click on it Apple recognised your purchases and doesn’t charge you. Just make sure you’re using the same Apple ID when restoring purchases!

Brilliant way to learn a language

I used this to learn Portuguese and picked up the basics really quickly in a effortless way. Much more structured than just learning parrot fashion. I'd recommend anyone tries the free version and then when it goes well, buy the next hour and so on! Fantastic app and method. Thank you!

Keeps crashing

Downloaded this app for the second time and purchased the first two lessons. Has crashed both times I've purchased it and won't proceed through the course. Contacted developers a week ago and still no response.
