Love the app because it makes learning really fun, the characters are cute, and the streak's a great way to keep me coming back every day for practice. I think my biggest issue is that there's no way to see "textbook learning" - if you don't know the conjugation for something, you have to look it up outside the app. I wish there was a section for the boring stuff so I could see why certain words are used. TLDR: fun, great for keeping up on a language, not great for learning a totally new one

I enjoy learning on here, but would like some more clarification on some of the grammar rules. I'm lucky because I tend to pick them up, but would definitely recommend outside resources. If you ever have any issues, give up on getting on contact with anyone. I have the family plan and I can't even add anyone to it without having to contact support, which defeats the entire purpose. Then it takes literal weeks for them to get back (still waiting). I also can't edit my daily xp goal. No help.

I've been using this app for years. Lately I keep feeling like I'm not actually learning. I'm clicking hints and going through it . I think it's the risk of losing hearts and ultimately losing progress/streak. Having to have hearts in order to complete a lesson, especially as they get more difficult, is hindering learning in order to make money. I understand the need for money, but it previously was advertised as always free. Also, it shouldn't take over 24hrs for hearts to refill on their own..
