Very Useful Features

Placement test starts a user at the right place instead of making them repeat known content. Trading corrections between native speakers learning different languages is genius. Short clips with visual and audio help with comprehension. Plus it has the common fill in the blank and word ordering type of questions.

One of the best language learning apps (with some minor improvements)

Let me start by saying this app has helped me improve my German immensely. I love the feature that allows you to practice writing and speaking with the vocabulary just learned. However, I have seen a small percentage of people give corrections on text specifically for those learning English that aren’t completely correct and I wish there was a way to prove that there is a certain standard of fluency that the person grading your exercises has. I love that when teaching vocabulary specifically, there are always lots of example sentences and you can hear them aloud. I wish that after each section you had the option of listening aloud. Overall, I truly love this app

My opinion

I love this app this is probably my new favorite it teaches you so much in a short amount of time. I do you have problem once you learn the phrase and go onto the next one it won’t allow you to swipe back and look at it and I would like to do that. Other than that this app is awesome!
