Good but could improve There is not enough emphasis on constructing the target language from scratch. You end up having a vast recognition memory but little else. You need to be able to formulate the words without help. There needs to more focus on speaking. This worked well on the iphone but on the android version you could literally grunt and it accepts it!!! Also what happened to Greek for English learners as was available on the iphone in beta mode but not on android. It is definitely less intutive to use.
Quick learning success It just lacks detailed grammar theory. Grammar is always useful, even if you're only aiming for conversational level. Also, the speech output (synhetic?) simply mispronounces some words, make sure to double check so you don't embarass yourself.
so easy but voices fail sometimes such a great language learning app it doesn't feel like work! I'm learning German through it right now and I love how the vocab builds but they continually bring words from previous lessons so you don't forget those too! the only downside is that sometimes the voices fail which is really important to me as I really want to make sure I get the pronunciation right! i really really hope they come out with Mandarin and Cantonese in the near future as those are the languages I really need help in!
More info please OK, I love this app. Starting here so you don't think I'm picking on you, only making requests. Could you *please* put links from the app to the same course on the website. I understand that there are more details about grammar etc there. Unfortunately I've forgotten which email and password I've used for the app so I can't sign in online. A direct link (carrying over the login details) would be v helpful! Also could you add voice lessons to the other languages, like you have in the French one. Thanks!
The finest lingo-app I know!! But there are some things that should be better.Ill give one: sometimes when you have a typo mystake he doesn't see that, and doesnt get your answer, and it is sucks. But most pf the time- he knows that it is a typo. Grate app, but can be better
Mostly good Love that it teaches you the language and that it provides you with some clues if there is a new word. Would be better if you could learn groups of words or numbers etc. Also teaches you some very odd and useless sentences, my favourite being "I am a duck and I speak English"
