Seriously SO good and entertaining!

I have studied language as young as second grade, bc I’ve always had a love of languages and would seek it out on my own. This is my fourth language I’ve worked in learning and this is by far my most favorite app to help someone learn a language! They teach letters in a way that naturally makes sense and progress from what you already know. Example: ㅅ (s) to ㅈ (j) to ㅊ (ch). They combine previously learned letters to make syllables to help you learn how to read, not just learn the alphabet. AND, they work on listening skills on top of the writing skills! This app is so worth the $2.99 I paid for it! It makes memorizing the letters and their sounds so much easier and a lot more entertaining! The one tip I would suggest to the makers is sometimes when the fireworks explode, it explodes at the same time as the pronunciation and makes it difficult to hear the pronunciation. So if they could edit the boom to sound after the pronunciation that would be a great improvement! But still, for the most part you can hear everything just fine and it’s totally worth it!

Great way to practice Korean and very fun!

I tried a lot of apps and this by far the best to help you master the alphabet, sounds and characters of Korean. It has a very colorful interface and let's you gradually progress through various exercises which build on each other. It's great if you are like me and cannot get into rote flash cards and repetitive "listen and repeat" systems. It also shows you how to do the strokes for the characters so can write them, too. You can try before you buy and if you do buy it is pretty reasonable and there is a fair amount of content to work through. Make no mistake though, if you are looking for a more comprehensive system, look elsewhere. This is just a starter. It would be good for these guys to do more as they have a real knack for developing fun exercises and content. They could probably do really well with more content and more advanced installments.

Make Thai please

The way that y'all have delivered the lessons and the information is absolutely genius, fun, comprehensive, and specTACULAR! There are plenty apps for learners of Thai language and I have used most of them but I am more than willing to trade in those ten apps for one from you guys! I would even pay $3 to download it if I had to. Please take my request into consideration because I love your developed apps already. I will be waiting for the email that says y'all dropped a Thai language app 🎉🎊👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾🙇🏾‍♀️ thank you so much for sharing.
