A workable language learning tool

I've used MT for other languages & am familiar with his teaching method. As for the method, it works. One will have a rudimentary understanding of the new language upon completion. This Italian course is no exception. I must say that MT's Italian accent is comprehendable but not native-sounding by any means. I would give this particular MT app five stars except for the misspellings in the flashcards section. Also, the audio assist, again in the flashcards section, is occasionally off the mark (e.g., no phrase is offered). Someone should closely edit the flashcards. Also, the flower-like design shown during the audio lessons is senseless. The app designers should perhaps show a little more imagination in giving the app listener something to view: for example, a photo or simple drawing that coincides with the phrase or term being taught.

Excellent Language program!

While I get ready for work in the mornings I listen to the lessons. It's amazing how much you can learn in a short time. I love this new app with the phrases on flash cards.

The fastest way to really speak and understand not just parrot phrases. Speak in full sentences in less than one day.
