Great app

This is such a great app. The only issue is the sound suddenly stoped working. I redownloaded it thinking that might fix it, but I hope if it is a bug that is affecting the sound and that the app makers work to fix it soon. This is a very important development in the preservation of the language. I was finally learning the language of my family in a systematic way and I know others will also, especially the youth, given apps like this, and so preserve this beautiful ancient oral culture for more generations.

There’s no sound.

It’s hard to learn a spoken language when there’s no sound from the app.
