They made the same mistake all Korean software makes. Everyday Koreans do not talk like this. You will look like a complete idiot if you traveled to Korea trying to use these formalities. To be successful, you must learn a language by how it's commonly spoken. It's as if all the Korean software languages are trying to prevent you from actually enjoying the culture's language. The concept is good, but it does a great disservice to the students that do not know any better.
I just downloaded this app. So far, I'm really enjoying myself with it. I'm having an issue with the mic, but it could be just my accent and not necessarily the app. I did get a little confuse because some of the words I don't know, but some of the words weren't the meanings I studied. But, hey, it's fun and I'm all for learning. So, thank you for making this. edit: I did like this app, I still kind of do, lol. I just didn't' like that I couldn't go through all the lessons unless I went to premium.
I like the app. I haven't given it 5 due to a small few issues but for the purpose intended it seems quite reasonable. // Audio appears to not work when casting to Google Chrome Cast (wireless) otherwise works fine. Also it's annying that if you uninstall and reinsttall and pick languages and continue using the app there aseems no way to reacess the login screen from the interface. Being able to access account details/status and login screen would be useful.
I like this app but it's not for complete beginners even if it says it is. I have not come across any lessons for grammar in this app and yet they give us full sentences to solve. I don't know any of the alphabet yet but do not find any study materials in this app for that either. Recently it started to crash my phone. My phone will heat up right around the camera area at the back of the phone and then it will freeze and the next thing I know my phone is rebooting.
It's decent enough, but I wish the people talking in the Korean app were actual Koreans. I study Korean at university and use this app for practice and thought that their pronunciation sounded very strange. So I got a Korean I know to listen to them, and she told me they are definitely not Korean and sound a lot like Japanese. UPDATE after reply: The developers obviously didn't read my review when they replied. I somehow doubt that me reinstalling the app will make the accents in the app sound more Korean.
I'm using the ap to brush up on my korean and I like that it is a similar layout to duolingo. However, I wish it included basics such as the consonant and vowel formations and grammar rules as a lesson itself rather than side notes, other wise you're just really being taught words at random to form sentences. Not exactly for absolute beginners but has the right idea in teaching through repetition via audio visuals, written and oral tasks.
