I really love this app and i was learning scottish gealic but i finished the first few lessons and i couldnt do anymore because it was asking for payments and sadly i really cant afford it and no library in glasgow uk offer it for free so im stumped. Guess ill never learn.
I'm currently trying to learn Korean and I've been loving Mango so far. For some reason, the app does not go any further beyond the loading screen. I was able to load Mango at least once or twice occasionally, but it refuses to fully load even after restarting my phone.
Well organized and thorough Lesson 1 (freebie) and this app has good potential; HOWEVER, it is very concerning that one must (1) be a member of a participating library [you should know, dear reader, that list is thin]; and, (2) one must be willing to shell out $20/MONTH (that's $240/year!) for access. Both of these [questionable] requirements are not only ridiculous, but quickly put what this app/service allegedly offers out of reach for many users. Then, (as if all that wasn't enough) there are those very questionable app permissions (location, contacts, call log, calendar, and sms) and pop-up permissions (the kind that appear once the app has started the first time). Sure, some of these permissions haven't been used, but that doesn't mean they can't or won't be used in future updates. In short, BUYER BEWARE! Now, cue the boilerplate response blowing off all the sketchiness...
I just downloaded the app and let's just say it's a different take from other language learning app as it let's us engage in the language we're learning and considering it's giving me tips on how to say sparkle in Japanese it's a plus. However this app is giving me problems like for one I don't have a library near me so I can't sign up... Even if I want to try and learn more all I can do is 3 lessons then I'm done.. So I'm either stuck there or you guys fix it...
I wish Marathi was also here which is spoken by over 100 million people. Tamil is spoken by over 70 million just in Tamil Nadu plus there are are many in Sri Lanka & Singapore. Punjabi isn't valued in Punjab of pakistan as much as it is in Punjab of India where it's the dominant language for official purposes. Andi hindi is not spoken by more than 700 million people, that number is after counting urdu which is still not right since many counted as speaking hindi actually speak languages unrelated to hindi as some are Eastern languages related to Bengali while a few are Western or North Western related to Gujarati & Punjabi.
I think that it could be better, you could copy memrise and offer a service to memorise more vocabulary divided with themes you already have in all the courses, you could have a British English course and also a really nice thing that I don't see in any app: accent reduction. Your app already helped me a lot with my language learning process and I hope you hair improve it more and more. P.S.: sometimes I can't stand the narrator, there's nothing wrong with her voice but sometimes it annoys me, it'd be great if you people label the words and expressions more precisely like: Q: How are you? (Formal) A:¿Cómo está usted? Or even Q:Nice to meet you! (Formal setting to a male) A: Miło mi pana poznać Or in cases when there are two verbs for to be, you could differentiate it in the questions without the necessity of listening to the narrator, I'd love to see it implemented.
