Good Thank your work very much and hope better

Overall is good but hope to trim the audio into paragraphs

I really like the App, it helps to improve the Chinese/English translation learning, especially the recent updates feature allowing to show En/Cn in the same page. I hope it can trim the article audio into paragraphs so that we can listen by paragraphs and it’s more useful to practice listening. Since the App’s target customers are Chinese English learners.
Also, one thing that I am not happy with is, I can’t join the weekly English forum because I chose the notebook( which I understood); but when I offered to extend my subscription before the due day, try to overlap the subscription, I still can’t join the forum. I have to wait until my current subscription ends then subscribe a new package so I can join the forum after that which it is not costumer oriented.

awesome! ,

Please fix the fatal bug!

iOS 14.2 beta

After the ads popped out, the app is completely dead. No response at all.
