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.

Too fast

First thing first in language concerning repetition is non existent. It must also be repeated in English so that it’s heard as well, not just to read. It moves too fast and you can only pause it and or start over again. There should be a playback option so it either to moves slow or fast. The linguistics is NOT taught which is important and pronunciation such as phonics, or morphology. I know that this may be one of zero systems available to teach the language but it needs to be structured better. As person who speaks 3 language and an ESL teacher myself this app needs some improvements. For a person familiar with the language it may seem child friendly but this isn’t a Germanic or Latin based language so the basics especially must be taught first. I’d suggest looking at the Pimselur language system and format the order of learning in that matter. I would be most thankful.

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.
