For Chinese this app is the worst. I studied A1 at a language school and I don't see that this app is teaching anything at all. They don't teach strokes, nor Pinyin. For a complete beginner it would be really important, to tell them the different tones and how important they are. I was hoping to at least learn vocabulary with this, but instead of carefully adding new words I could study over a day, I get 5 sentences every lection without any break down and without explaining words more clearly. I noticed in school how important it is, to see the history/evolution of a Chinese character and other meanings to learn and remember them faster.
I think this app is great! I'm attempting Arabic now but it did throw me off when they used Arabic script. I had to download a secondary app to help me at least begin reading it. I think to mitigate that (and the harder language alphabets) there should be an option to practice the alphabet or strokes.
I don't personally think that this is a good app, bevause you have to pay to be able to do half the things. It doesn't seem like much of a problem in the beginning, but it adds up to a huge lack of understanding, especially with grammar.
I keep getting an error: "There is no Internet connection" whenever I open a lesson. Every other part of the app is fully functional. I will update my review accordingly once this is fixed.
For beginners level Chinese I think it's a bit extreme for someone to be able to match English sentences with Chinese characters....Who scripted this program? This is not the way I would write a beginners language program...
They should unlock as you pass the assignment I'm not paying a monthly fee when I can use a website to teach me I'm uninstalling it's a waste of time
