Threw things at me too quickly and randomly became too hard for me. I end up having to retake the lessons a bunch or not even trying until the end-of-unit review. Ads (usually unskippable) occur every 2 seconds and happen more often as you advance. I get you need profit, but it's boring and repetitive. The only thing I like is, unlike Duolingo, it teaches more practical things to learn as a beginner. For example: common phrases, questions, greetings, goodbyes, etc.

the content itself is pretty great ! ive been absorbing lessons well unlike with other apps i have tried in the past. however, the app is VERY, VERY excessive about pushing premium onto free users. i understand y'all gotta make money somehow, and i would not mind it if it were every so often, but it is legitimately before and after every. single. lesson. also, sometimes, i will have lessons crash mid-exercise, and i have to start them over from the top. i do still enjoy this app lots, though !

Let me start off by saying, thank you for this app, it's helping way more than duilingo ever has. As someone who is a beginner in studying other languages, specifically Italian, I frequently review earlier lessons. Everytime I complete a lesson, the page refreshes right back to my "current lessons" and have to scroll so far up just to get back to the earlier lessons I am learning. It would be convenient if there was a better way to access my lessons, either a scroll bar or categorized section
