안녕하세요! I have been using this app to learn Korean for over a year now, and this app makes learning a language so comprehensible. You don’t even realize how easily you are learning the words, and the methods are fun and simple to follow. I have really picked up on the language thanks to quite a bit of help from this app.
Some things I would suggest though, is for those who are really trying to learn to speak the language, there is only really vocabulary words and how to word certain verbs on here, and I would like to see maybe some teachings on how to conjugate verbs and sentence structure. I had to do a lot of alternative research to really learn to speak the language correctly. I don’t know if there is something for that in the intermediate section because I’m only halfway done with beginner, but I definitely think it would help. I would also really like to see some sections that cover slang words and honorifics, because I think the latter is very important to learn if you plan to travel and use the language in the country or with actual Korean people. Otherwise, it’s very fun to use and I always look forward to doing my lesson at the end of my day. 정말 행복.... Very happy! 감사합니다!
I’m a Korean culture enthusiast and I’ve always thought the best way to understand a people is to first speak their language. There aren’t any Korean teachers where I live so, naturally, I took to language-learning apps. One of my favourite things about Drops is that you can easily track your progress and the app makes sure to give you enough practice with a specific word. It’s not a perfect app and I did have to do my own research elsewhere about letter and sentence structuring, but if you’re serious about learning the language, I would definitely recommend this app for it’s the only one that is yet to disappoint me. In regards to the new update though, I would like to ask the producers of the application to re-evaluate how they expect us to draw certain characters. I feel as though there is no one starting or ending point for each and every letter, especially in Korean where a letter is literally a square (ㅁ). I suggest that we be allowed to start and stop at whichever point on the letter, provided we know how to write, yes? Apart from that, an overall 10/10 app.

I just started
The app told me to review for ten more minutes BUT so far it seems really great. I am comprehending the words very well and picking them up really fast. The visual representation helps a lot and constantly hearing it throughout the session. I’m Korean and I’m visiting Korea soon. I was adopted from there when I was about 5 months old. I don’t know the language, but I’m hoping this app will help me out a little bit before I go. Just to be able to recognize stuff. So far, my first five minutes have been a good introduction and I’m quite excited to keep going. I really like how you can choose the words you wish to learn and those you don’t. The pronunciation so far sounds pretty accurate as well, so I’m really looking forward to this app. Also the fact that you can choose the topic is really nice. Since I’m going there soon, I won’t have enough time to really get a grasp on the language, but at least I’ll be able to narrow down what I am learning so I can be slightly less confused while I’m there.
