This app is wonderful. Even after several years with no practice, I've picked back up on my target language rapidly, and it's been fun. The only thing I don't like is the timed exercises. I'm limited to mobile, and mildly arthritic, which makes them all but futile, especially the typing exercises. On the other hand, the most useful part for me is the listening exercises, especially the stories.

Addictive and fun, teaches both written and spoken skills. Just started but already lacks the almost immediate frustration I felt with other systems. Too soon to tell if i will actually be successful and reach a passable familiarity with the new language. If I'm still at it in a month, I'll probably go for the paid version to bypass the ads.

Really great overall! It's not a pay to win app! There is just a few things I'd like to suggest. 1 MAKE MUSIC AND MATH AVILABLE TO OTHER DEVICES THAN APPLE. I use Android, and I really want to do the music course, so it's a huge let down for me and many others. 2 I'm sure it would be convinent to pause 2X EXP potions, because I do a lesson before work, and get a boost, but then I can't use it because I'm busy. Otherwise it's a great app overall.
