Great practice tool

Love the interactive aspect of it and the daily reminders it sends to open the app and practice. I have the Igbo 102 module and this app is great for practicing my Igbo as someone who’s learned the basics but wants more practice hearing tonal differences and pronunciations.

Thank you for the feedback. Glad it helps.

Best African Language App Available

The fact that they teach language at a kid's level is genius! It is very interactive and fun, especially the background music!

I am learning Yoruba right now & now I feel silly wasting over $50 on other apps/books, which did not help me at all! I use it mostly on my iPad, but the iPhone version is fun to do at work on breaks or while waiting in line at the store.

Glad to know. Thank you very much.

No sound

I can’t hear. I’ve messed with the settings and still no sound.
Update: If you have your phone on silent mode, you won’t be able to hear the sound. The developer informed me of this. With other apps, I haven’t had this issue. But I’ve updated my review.

Developer Response ,

Hello. Simply toggle the mute button on the side of the iPhone. We also added it as part of our FAQs.
