    Best way to learn a language on your phone. They added a subscription to turn off ads and download lessons to learn offline, it's really cool!

    I've been using this for 2 weeks and was so excited to be learning Spanish. I think that it does do a great job of teaching you. However, no matter how many times I take a lesson without making mistakes, my skills won't turn golden. I have probably taken the basic skills 1 lesson 30 times with no mistakes and it still won't turn gold. I haven't taken the others that many times but they won't turn gold either. What gives??
  • This app used to be amazing. Not anymore.

    When I first got this app a long time ago, I thought that it was on par, if not better than Rosetta Stone. It was free, you could have conversations, you could have all the perks and then some. Then, now I have to wait for some asinine currency to pool up so I can continue with my lesson? Just make the app like $1.99 or something if you really want money from your app. This gem system is just interfering with the whole system and I'm having a real hard time learning now.
  • Health is annoying.

    So I'm learning German and this app is helping me very much, but it discourages me when I'll be at the end of a lesson and my health runs out because I get something wrong, then I have to wait a couple hours to get more health or take another quiz. It gets annoying because I don't want to wait a super long time to get full health. Whatever.

    I only know this app because of Shawn Mendes. But it works really well.
  • Updated version puts in barriers to learning

    I was using this app to learn Spanish, refresh my German, and refresh my French. It was great until the most recent update. Now if you make too many mistakes, you will run out of health and it will not let you continue for a number of hours. Or you can purchase health. It is hard enough learning new languages. Also, if you were studying more than one language, mistakes in one language will deplete your health in another language. This adds to the difficulty and complexity of studying several different languages. I do not need the app putting in unnatural barriers that will not let me practice. If this is not updated to go back to the way it was before, I will cease using this app and find something different. This update has made it completely unpleasant and unusable.
  • Was great app, now worthless

    I liked this app a lot until a few months back. There wer some issues related to maintating lesson progress, but still used this app daily with reservations. Recently, app devs. introduced the idea to gamify this app. Every incorrect answer deducts a life. I understand it's a free app and it needs to make money. But I don't understand how the Product Manager approved the feature to introduce lives for incorrect responses? This is not a shooting game where you eventually get better at it, or racing game where you learn to throttle/brake at the right moment. This is a language learning app where you are supposed to learn new words. If it's repetition, it's worthless! I lost my 137 day streak, didn't bother to continue, and now the app is not even on my phone. As I mentioned, it has become terrible.
  • How's says life too short to learn German?

    I really enjoy this app and have learned a lot of German. It has also improved greatly with each update when compared to when I first got the app. Now the only issue i have is I can never seem to catch up and some lessons don't get counted as completed. I'll grind through several lessons adding up to well over 100xp only to find the next day my progress bars are down to three again. Then some lessons I'll take over and over and not receive any credit, but it's only on certain lessons. I want to progress but I constantly feel like I'm playing catch up. Lastly when they added new lessons and broke up old lessons into multiple ones I was never shown some of the new words and I'm not given any hints. That's not a huge deal as now I get to learn new words! All in all I really enjoy this app.
