Deceptive!!!, Tested a few words. It is decent
Deceptive!!! I forgot to cancel after the trial period and got charged for three months. The fine print stated “payment will be charged to your iTunes account.” Why charging for three months and not one. I did not agree to this. Also they have a clever use of word,. They use the word “automatically renew” Which means you will get charged even you turned off the automatic subscription in iTunes. At this point, I try to look for a way to cancel the subscription so I don’t get charged again in the next three month. Guess what there no cancel button in the app to be found. What kind of company that don’t give your customer a way to cancel the subscription. Well I am calling my credit company to dispute the charge. Dishonest company won’t last long. They either change their way or they will go in the way of the dinosaurs.
This app is giving me hopes
I never thought I would be able to get rid of my strong Chinese accent. My accent has made me depressed and felt less about myself. I think I have good knowledge of English language but my accent usually holds me back. Then I discovered this app. It helped me identify issues with my pronunciation that I was not aware of. Now I’m obsessed with this app and practice with it everyday. There’s already a vast improvement with my speech. Now I’m feeling hopeful that I will be able to sound like a native speaker in no time. This app is changing my life for the better. I’m so glad that I discovered it.
Fantastic App for Vietnamese native learner
I’ve tried a few apps out there to improve my accent. ELSA stands out as the pronunciation app for Vietnamese learners like me. It focuses more on your speaking skill and less on your grammar. I set up a goal to learn 20 minutes a day or 1.5 hours a week.
If you want to improve faster, you can hire an American pronunciation coach who can identify your problems and then you can focus more on the areas. Learning American accent is persistent. It will pay you off eventually.
