Ratings and Reviews
When I was working on this app, I realized that lots of things need an upgrade. I’m only 9, so I can’t afford an upgrade. My parents won’t get it either. I do understand that’s how busuu makes money, but I can’t simply skip lessons because they cost money. It also occurs less people will use the app if the upgrade cost money. The people who tried and did not like it are the people who feel excluded and feels like they are not learning as much as they should without the upgrade. In my opinion you should add a couple separate features instead of making it one full upgrade. You will also make more money because people will feel it’s cheaper to get one thing. Make every feature $1 to $2 dollars. You should get more money that way. For example. A feature could be being able to have more freedom when choosing friends that are fluent in the language you are learning. Other wise, this is the best app. My family is Italian. I’m not full Italian. Both of my parents have went to Italy. My grandmother is half Italian. It makes me feel more connected to my great grandparents. This is the best app for people to learn fluent languages! Especially kids!
Easy to learn speak read write
This is a great way to learn a new language! I have turned many people onto the Busuu language app even some of my college teachers. You not only learn proper pronunciation and speaking a new language you learn to read and write in the language also. I do my lessons with a note book and write it all down. Also its good to make a friend with someone on face book from the country of which language you are learning and install a translator app for free like google translate and then you have someone to frequently communicate with in that language. I bought the full course LEARN TO SPEAK ITALIAN and have a friend in Italy with the same last nake as myself who lives like 20 minutes away from San Giovanni Di Fiorre in the Cosenza Calabria region of Italy where my family comes from. Im second generation and now when people say “ oh youre Italian calabrese do you speak Italian I can say Yes! “ Thanks Busuu for making it wasy to learn a new language at my own pace and the price is good too!
Can be better
It’s exciting to know that I can achieve a certain level of knowing the language in x amount of time.. but the navigation can be improved. The layout of the pages can be improved.. I wished I can go to previous pages just to check something or I accidentally pressed the continue too soon. Would be nice to have a flash card section just to go over certain lessons with the examples .. if there is it’s not advertised well. I also wished there were more translations on things so I know what is said instead esp if I guess the answer and I have nooo idea what the sentence says. At least have a tap on the word option for the translation .. I’m not sure if I’ll reach my supposed intermediate level at this rate with how I’m “learning”. The layout irks me a bit since I accidentally push the wrong button of the instructions for the step is unclear, then I get things wrong because i don’t even understand the task. It gets frustrating and I can’t even enjoy the app.. it feels a bit like a chore.. but I want to learn so I keep using it to ideally meet my intermediate goal by the deadline.. and I paid for it. Many improvements can be made. Very nice photos tho, and I like the different voice pronunciations. Navigation can be better.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback and your time. We're happy to know that overall you're enjoying the learning experience with busuu, however we understand that different users might have different expectations. For this reason we highly value the feedback this message contains. We would like to address some of the suggestions we brought up in your comments since we're currently working to improve some of them. In regards to the translations our education team is already working to introduce more and more of them progressively. However we believe that any active language learner should complement their studies with other resources like a dictionary. If you find yourself often wondering about the meaning of some words in the course, maybe it's the right time to try the Strength your vocabulary feature in our app!
Secondly, about the layout issues you've been talking about, we would appreciate if you could send us an email containing some real examples at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can look into it.
Again, thanks for your comments and interest in busuu, best wishes with your italian learning!
