Ratings and Reviews
NEED MORE OF THESE!!
This is a GREAT tool for learning proper Spanish. Easy to use, intuitive, addicting. I got the Monkeys Paw book too. PLEASE MAKE MORE OF THESE EBBI BOOKS!!!! As a student of Spanish they are the best free resource I’ve found and wish there were more like them out there. A while library of content would be amazing More languages too!
This app is very practical for leaning to read in another language, I like it. The story is hysterical, too.
Good app, weird book
This app works well for the most part and is nice to be able to switch back and forth between languages. I wish there was a way to slow down the reading in Spanish. Also, this book was freaking weird as all get out.
