It's really fun. It turns language learning into a game and explains grammar nuances that Rosetta Stone doesn't cover nearly as well. I have stuck with this longer and learned more than any other language program I've tried. It just keeps getting better!
Have been using the Android version, which contains a variety of mutually-reinforcing exercises and is very useful. By contrast, the Windows 10 app seems to consist largely of written translations from the target language to English, and is far less satisfying. Stick with the Android version.
Great to study and have fun at the same time
Fun & easy way to learn another language. It seems to be very similar to Rosetta Stone but much cheaper!
For as well created and upkept as the app is itself, the introduction of the ads along with the further changes to the ad links and the "skip" to get around them is frustrating. I understand that this is a free service, but there needs to be alternatives for those who do not with the get baited into clicking and being redirected every other lesson. Terrible implementation in my opinion.
I love this program so far. I thought it would only be spoken word but it also teaches you how read and write as well.
