I'm learning a lot from the app on my phone. The voice recognition needs major improvements though. It just doesn't recognize what I'm saying. I have to skip the pronunciation more than not and it's discouraging that such an important part of the app underperforms. Note to the devs: I'm on Android with a Bluetooth headset on. It's possible the headset is picking up my voice poorly.

Got it when I decided to better myself by learning a new language. I like the layout and easy to use format of the app. The lessons progress at a decent rate allowing you to fully grasp the content before moving on. It also allows you to review it at any time in different ways. You can learn to not only speak the languages but read and write in them pretty decently too. The lessons aren't long so you can squeeze on in anywhere. Definitely reccommend for anyone of any age wanting to learn.

I like the lessons but lately can't get passed newcomer lesson 10 in Russian. I get ½-way thru & a popup gives me a rule. There's no way to close the screen so I can't proceed. The only option is to close the lesson which does allow me to continue where I left off but the same thing happens repeatedly. Very frustrating. Not motivating at all. Now, there's a break in my streak even tho I've practiced the same things repeatedly for over an hour. Very glitchy for the price. Disappointed. Pls fix.
