Great App ! Very convenient

I have bought books and tried learning Sicilian on many occasions but have given up because a book cannot talk to you and help you pronounce words properly. Id get bored sitting in front of a book, thinking im saying it right just to find out I am not. Many books ive tried learning from were a mash up of many different Sicilian provinces in one making it even more confusing to learn. They come with lousy CD’s that skip around. With this app you will be able to simply choose a province and begin learning. No more annoying books to carry around or outdated CD’s. Its all in your phone and its so convenient, you can learn anywhere anytime! After practicing words and memorizing you take a course and see how well you retained. This is a wonderful app, I highly recommend it to anyone trying to learn Sicilian.

Note: For the people giving this app a bad review, they must have their phone settings on Dark Mode. I did too at first and after I switched it off the App worked just fine.

Hi Shaun, thank you for the great review. We honestly appreciate it considering the hard work we put into it. And thank you for pointing out the 'Dark Mode' issue to reviewers, we had that fixed so it shouldn't be a problem anymore. All the best and goodluck with your Sicilian learning journey

Pleased with the app!

I am very pleased with the app! The option to learn different Sicilian dialects is impressive! More than what I expected.

This may be a long shot but is there anyway you or someone can help connect me with a Sicilian speaker from caltanisetta? I need to sharpen my skills in this specific dialect,( where my grandma is from)

Has promise

This app needs some serious content in order to compete for one’s desire to keep coming back to the app. There is some good content, but it is seriously lacking features that should have someone wanting to go back for more.

There are no pictures at all. Pictures help tremendously in learning a language. There is a reason certain language apps are successful and have taught millions. These and many more features are extremely important in teaching a language to people. They offer the complete package and appeal to all. Being Sicilian is considered an endangered language, shouldn’t we make the app attractive to children as well? The saying goes, children are our future, so why leave them out?

The app is far from complete, but I donated my money in the hopes that it will improve and help teach our Sicilian language to many more. I would like to help as well.

Hi Vapuri. You do have a point, but if you consider that there are hundreds of dialects that make up the Sicilian language, it is not easy to cater for all. We've included 9 of the dialects, which means 9 different ways of saying over 300 words, 9 different ways of saying over 300 different phrases, and 9 different ways of saying both past and present tenses of a significant number of verbs. Also included is a complete beginner course that covers the fundamentals of Sicilian. Not to mention the audio from 9 different Sicilian natives that have spent time contributing to the app. Creating this kind of project has been a significant challenge, not only becauses of a lack of resources and funding, but even uninterested parties and investors who see no future in the Sicilian language. Also to add to it the difficulty of collaboration because of Covid. You do not know what goes on behind a project like this, so 2 stars is very dissapointing, especially for someone who states they'd "like to help".
