Quality App for German Learners

I am a retired high school language teacher. I still tutor a few students and I try to find tools that younger people will use without having to twist their arm. iPhone apps are an obvious choice.
This app is one of my favorites. Every student needs a good dictionary even if they have lesson type apps like Duolingo or Rosetta Stone. It has a good breadth of vocabulary and has more slang terms than other apps I have tried. After students master the basics, learning slang is a big motivator so they can talk like a local.
There is a nice phrase book with hundreds of useful translation for a trip to Germany. You can add phrases too which is great because no app contains everything you need.
I highly recommend this app for language teachers and students.

Thorough & Easy to Use

I’ve used this app for several trips to Germany and Switzerland- both to prepare for the trip, and once I’m there. I can work on phrases for common situations whenever I have a few free moments, and refer to it overseas when I need help with a sign or menu, or get some help when asking for something. I use it many times a day when in Europe. It is very fast and intuitive. Highly recommend it!

Daily help

Taking German 2 and using it always. Request: more support for plural formation. But this is an indispensable tool. Pronunciation feature is helpful too. Speed is adjustable and the articulations are credible. Thanks!
