Pros: Overall, the format is straightforward. Being able to receive corrections from native speakers is a nice feature. Cons: Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like the review section is available offline. From my experience, the review repeats the same basic words and phrases too much. I would suggest other apps like Duolingo for review. I also have a problem with my notifications. When I take a look at one and then go back, it does not show which notifications I have already looked at.

Lately the app has improved a lot, my only complaint is that in the English classes, there is an audio of a lady who is not very well understood, they're the only exercises where I struggle to understand, It's like she had recorded it with a cheap microphone and between the pronunciation of some words the meaning is lost because her breath is heard hitting the microphone. However, like everything in life, dedication is required and the application has helped me a lot to improve my English.

I'm still mostly happy with it, but after 4 months, I've encountered a big problem with the design. I'm now deep into the B1 level of German and almost all of the lesson instructions and learning tips are entirely in German. This wouldn't be a problem if they were consistent with your level, but the instructions and tips use words you haven't been taught yet. This wouldn't be a huge issue if I could just copy the text and paste it in Google Translate, but the app doesn't allow you to on mobile.
