Best way to learn a language

Got this app for my holidays and learning a language got so much easier. After spending 4 years at school doing French I got more out of this app then all of school put together.
I have had no problem with downloading except that hour 1,2,3 can't be downloaded on my daughters IPod.
It also has flash cards ect to practice with and does not require wifi so it is easy to learn whilst driving or on a flight. Totally worth getting and paying for all the hours and easy for kids and adults alike.

I bought 3 Spanish courses from the old version of the app which I can no longer access on my new iPhone XR despite following the instructions to restore previous purchases. The new app wants to charge me again for the courses, which is not acceptable. I have emailed the support team for help several times over the last 3 weeks with no reply.
The courses themselves contain much useful material which I would still use if it was available. The lack of support is disappointing and I will certainly not use any other on-line language courses by Michael Thomas until this is resolved. Thankfully I can continue my studies with other (free and equally useful) on-line courses eg Duolingo.
