Pretty decent.

This is one of the better language apps I've tried. The free version has the basics and the pro version has a lot more. This app is perfect for me since I'm going to Southeast Asia soon and find this useful. Although this is a pretty great app, I tested the Vietnamese and Spanish languages and it isn't without error (I speak both). The Vietnamese english pronunciations added an R at end of a lot of words which shouldn't be there and also some letters are missing that would help the pronunciation. Some of the phrases aren't the common ones you hear on the street since its a little more formal on the app, but that's okay. Also, the woman they used to do the Vietnamese language has an accent that most Vietnamese people I know don't use, so it'll be a little hard for you to communicate with others. But all in all a great app! Love that it has Indonesian and Thai.
