This is a complicated review... the app is great, and the progression through languages is awesome. However, monetization is very aggressive when you consider that their mission is to make learning a new language "free". You see, a lot of people, including myself, learn by making mistakes, but in the app, you can only make 5 mistakes in a row and then you have to "practice" (which is interesting but defeats the "progress is better than perfect" moto) or wait 15 hours (?!).

Points and double XP don't always add up correctly. It rewards you by saying you'll earn more the next 15 minutes and then doesn't always activate. I'm still learning the language. The concept, delivery and ability to keep progressing well on through the lessons for free is amazing! The handful of oops and glitches are worth it. The price of the plans are too expensive for me personally. Thanks for the alternate opportunity to learn with all the advertisements. Hopefully they contribute well.

I am almost done with the polish lessons again and there still doesn't seem to be 2000 words yet. Also the monthly challenges are broken and progress stops for seemingly no reason. I am certain that i have done double the quests required to complete the challenge. The app gets less stars if it does not work as intended. When it gets fixed i will update the review. My record of a perfect monthly streak is broken after almost 2 years. I'm still doing daily lessons. Please fix bugs first.
