Very useful for the diaspora 2nd ans 3rd générations. But quite poor for true linguists and native speakers. The lack of technical words and équivalent for common names of non local objects, animals, etc may give impression that bambara is actualy a kind of "creole langage" . Which is not true

Perfect, would be cool if we could also have the possibility to have daily sentences notifications along with daily words notifications.

You only get one star. Not at all helpful. I typed the word women and got a translation for a totally different word. It was like it didn't exist at all in any language. Completely useless.
