A solid language learning app. I like that it teaches you specific grammatical rules as it goes along and that it isn't too gamey. It has a major flaw though. Its speech recognition is bad. Normally it works okay but there are some words it just can't seem to identify. Also whenever it detects something wrong it gives you these little messages like "keep trying mistakes are important for learning" and I find them very irritating and patronizing when the speech recognition is what is failing

I got a lower price. I wanted to study Spanish after decades of not using the language. I went to subscribe, but the initial price was high. So, I signed up for offer emails instead. A month later, I was able to get 6 mos for $3 per mo. It's due up front. It auto-renews at reg price after that time period. I set a reminder on my calendar to cancel before. The lessons are easy to do. Set goals; progress at your own pace. You'get reminders to learn, But, easily dismissed if you're busy.

Using for Russian. Voices that say the words aren't very clear / expressive. Microphone diagnostic won't pick up on some speaking, so I keep failing certain quiz questions. Very oriented toward the writing aspect, like explaining verbs and such. Not a fun way of learning, honestly. The BEST feature is that it keeps a log of all the phrases / words that have been introduced so far. Duolingo is better imo. I am using both apps at the same time (1 month so far). This one is more expensive / boring
