(Spanish Course) does a great job of teaching a language by breaking it down into smaller sections to work on. one point taken away for making it into a competition against other learners. this should just be an environment to learn together. one point taken away for changing sentence structures later in specific circumstances. and if you try to apply the same logic to earlier examples it's marked wrong. otherwise a very good learning tool, I plan to continue using it.

The league section is broken, every time I go on to it, it crashes the app. I dropped down a league because of it, and almost lost my streak because I couldn't do a quick timed challenge. I've already tried closing the app and reopening it numerous times, restarted my phone, and uninstalled and reinstalled it. None of it worked. Pls fix. And I don't like the new way of creating profile pictures, I think there should also be an option to upload a picture from your phone instead.

The XP ramp up challenge feature won't load properly. Sometimes it works but the majority of time it says "An error has occurred, try again later." It used to work fine...until I purchased the one year subscription. If it can't be fixed I'd like a refund. I've already tried restarting, uninstalling and re-installing...nothing works. It's a shame that things get worse after they get your money. Very disappointed.
