It starts a little slow, but give it at least ten lessons before you give up. Also, I realized you can pick whatever lesson you want from the Library icon in the upper left of the home screen. It feels like being in a kids' tv show and getting to answer questions along the way. The animal characters are cute and friendly. I used it for several hours, and it seems completely ad-free, which is great.

It is very engaging, my little one loves the content and the characters. I wish you could test out of skills since it doesn't seem to adapt as fast as we wish. Also, it would be great to be able to limit the different kinds of things you find in the library, right now it is all of it or none, but this can be overwhelming for young learners. Finally, a browser option would be a good addition.
