Learn beyond the basics
Many other courses go from A to B, teaching you greetings and basic sentences and before you know it, it's over. Ouino goes way beyond the basics; by the time you are done with this program, you will know more German than may seem possible right now.
Benefit from Ouino's Fast and Slow Pronunciation
Ouino has an extensive amount of example sentences, each associated with two very helpful pronunciation speed. A fast pronunciation to help you get used to the speed of the language and understand native speakers. A slow pronunciation to break down each sentence, helping you to clearly understand how words are pronounced.
Easily keep track of your progress
Keep track of your progress and knowledge by evaluating your "knowledge level".
When you finish a lesson you can choose one of four levels, depending on how well you understood the lesson. Then, when you go back to the table of content you can see which topic you need to improve on.
Learn how to think in German
The key to learning a language is not to remember pre-made sentences, but to learn the building blocks to make your own sentences. Ouino German is based on this concept; you will gain knowledge of each individual part of a sentence in detail, discover a massive amount of vocabulary, and become skilled at using several verbs in German.
Your own virtual instructor
Ouino is designed as your own personal instructor, you learn what YOU want to learn, not what "lesson X" has in store for you. Let's pretend you're going to a German restaurant and you want to impress your friends with your knowledge. You can choose to learn some restaurant words and useful phrases, the verb "to eat" and "to drink" and perhaps to become familiar with some food vocabulary! You can also "tell" your program (aka your teacher) to repeat, or repeat slower, as many times as you want! Then, you can test yourself by taking the associated quiz. You are always in full control.

Ratings and Reviews
Program is not very mature
Purchased the license and tried running an exercise (take exercise). An exercise tests your skill in a topic by giving you 20 timed questions to answer. Below are my notes from attempting to do the exercise. While the material is fine, the UI is completely unusable and the lack of flexibility in parsing answers for correctness will become a huge problem as a student learns more of the language.
Questions are placed at bottom and answers at top. Very counterintuitive.
Accepts only formal responses when informal should also be accepted.
Doesn’t accept singular where either singular or plural would work. Worse… the English was passed in the singular (where is the bathroom) but the answer has to be in the plural (wo sind die Toiletten)
Doesn’t accept Alternative common responses (was heißt … but not was bedeutet…)
Under „Take Exercises“, it shows you a blanked out sentence in one place, but rather than filling the blanks as you type, your typing floats at the top of the screen.
Keyboard covers what you are translating.
Tapping on the space where your sentence is going makes the keyboard disappear.
Can’t copy/paste user name or password fields to log in.
Does not support Face ID or touch ID.
Non-native GUI app makes the entire UI for iPhone awkward to use.
Perfect for learning languages
This app is amazing! It is unlike any other language app. It teaches you grammar, verb conjugation, pronounciation,etc. And its teaching style makes what you learn, imposibile to forget
