It's definitely helping me learn some. The game-y setup definitely encourages you to keep going. I like the free trials that come up. I don't like that some browser version features are missing: you can't drag and drop the words individually, you have to remove every word before it, and miss the alternative answers that show up. And I wish there were verb tables. I don't like the sentences that don't get translated at all, just told right or wrong. Miss the forum explanations for wrong answers.

Great as review or a refresher but not useful for actually teaching your chosen language comprehensively. The app does not do a good job of teaching the rules and structure of a language. It's strong point is definitely it's ability to help review in various ways. I like that you can practice speaking as well as spelling and writing. It's like half of a language class. Also the friend quests and the timed matching competition suck. There is never enough time. You almost always need to get more

Helpful to learn a language. The app design is like a game and encourages continuous learning. Interactive and engaging. Downside is the app seems to lag at times and the speaking part seems to overwhelm the system at times. A word or phrase may count as incorrect and later correct despite no changes in my pronunciation. The only way to pass certain speaking parts is to speak unnaturally slow and over-enunciated. Still a great app overall.
