A great "free" way to learn or brush up on a language. The ads are not too disruptive, but with very few mistakes you are forced to buy back in or delay your lesson; a more generous algorithm might be more conducive to encourage usage and learning...but then I guess they would like you to buy in for unlimited play. It's probably worth it if you can skip lessons as it sometimes feels it progresses slowly. I recommend playing without noise or distractions to prevent mistakes.

The lessons start easy and become harder, building off what was previously learned. There is a lot of repetition to ensure that even if you happen to "guess" correctly the first time you actually learn the words and how to properly use them. The lessons center around a particular topic so you get that word repetition quickly, then move on to a different topic. There is a good mix of reading, listening and speaking to ensure you are learning all aspects of the language.

Great app, makes learning super fun and easy. Definitely makes learning a language 1000% better when used side by side with a real curriculum. That being said, it sucks that it doesn't qualify as a language credit. Also, I really wish there was an option to set a few days of the week for a break. Having to still do lessons when you're sick/working/on the weekend kind of sucks. If there were an option to pick a couple of days off that would be awesome.
