Your eyes will appreciate the gorgeous pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently. You won’t have use the word of your native language, but instead, connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning.

    I’m trying to relearn Hebrew, I know the letters well, this font seems to fit the style of the app but isn’t the correct Hebrew font, makes it very difficult/impossible to see the slight nuances of the letters. Besides that the learning platform seems great.
  • Overall not student-friendly

  • Mispronouncing words all the time

    In the Chinese program on this, there are so many words being mispronounced. Chinese is mono-syllabic, but any word that has two vowels (with only a few exceptions like chuo 辶) it pronounces with both vowels making it wrong. It sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard. I have been studying Chinese all my life and I promise you it is paining me to listen to shuay-ee instead of just shui for 水. Please fix the pronunciations on all of your Chinese words. This is not Japanese where every syllable is pronounced. Also, please add a test out function, if there is one I haven’t found it, but I don’t like learning how to say people over and over again. Additionally, there is a bug that had me “learning” 人 at least 5 times over the course of one lesson (as in dragging it to the “yes I want to learn this word spot”) which is really annoying and a waste of time. I give it three stars because it is an innovative and interactive way to learn a language, but it is riddled with things that need correcting.
  • Good app
