The quality of translations has gone way down since getting rid of most human translators and turning it over to AI. I can't tell you the number of times it's said a correct answer was wrong, and I send flags each time. For example, "niña" & "chica" both mean girl, so it isn't *wrong* to use one over the other. I've also had times their translation was flat out wrong. That's not to mention the number of times the mic doesn't pic up speech, or the times it crashes/freezes up.

The graphics make language learning fun! However, since I have been doing 4 languages, in the words section, the app confuses German words with Spanish ones. Also, the audio is really glitchy, most times not able to be heard at all on the section matching the sounds with the print. The only option is to say I can't do listening right now....because I can't hear anything!!! This is a new segment, and I hope it gets improved soon.

Its great so far, but then you get stuck with a burst of new terms, with really no way to practice them. When you have a paid service, there is a training area, but it does not allow you to choose the lession type you want to practice. such as all/current/last 3. A lot of the time I get stuck on the same exercise for the entire day. Also for some reason there is no addition of note cards to or a way to choose to make your own test. That said, great second or third tool to use to learn.
