    I've used every language learning app out there and this is the one I'm paying for right now. It's worth it. I hire two Spanish tutors who I see multiple times per week, and this is equally helpful (minus all the trouble of scheduling a tutor). The UX is smooth and the pacing of progression can be as slow or quick as you want it to be. It also tracks and allows you to quiz on the vocab you've learned, so you don't have to build flashcard decks. Its social features seem like a bit of an afterthought, and you need human interaction to learn a language, but a tutor or dedicated language exchange app can fill that gap.
  • This Is The Best Language App!!

    This app is amazing!!!! It has all u need to know about a language (grammar, spelling...) and you can even let other people in the world edit your answer (my fav part) I am currently learning Deutch (German) and I’m almost 100% fluent... lastly, the app offers a premium, which in my opinion is worth it..:
  • “Strengthen Vocabulary”

    Ive been trying to take the japanese course and when i try to quiz the vocabulary it asks me to type what i hear. I think its a great way to learn but sometimes it requires it to be typed in romaji and sometimes in hiragana which is confusing and frustrating. Also some slight variations like わたしは is expected to be written as “watashi wa” despite the fact that the character is “ha” is aggravating enough to come here and write a review about it.

    Trying to learn Spanish this app has helped me quite a bit. I do find a few issues, though. One big one is that when you get to a new word and it starts to teach you that word, it throws other words in a sentence at you that you haven’t learned or heard at all. Why do I have to use google to translate a sentence and learn a word you haven’t taught me yet to learn the proper meaning of a word you’re teaching me in the same lesson?? Another issue I have is that there seems to be no great revision of what you learned. I can keep going on with lessons but it makes no sense if I have already forgotten a few words from the previous lessons. I can go back to the other lessons, but going through them again is almost a hassle cause it baby steps you through them like it’s the first time all over. The quizzes are also an issue cause I want to retake quizzes but they’re not only the exact same questions, but also the exact same order. Making it a memory of the question game and not of the actual words and language them self. Needs improvement and I hope they work on the program itself.

    I just started the lesson and found I could do it with voiceover but I have to turn voiceover off to switch pages and I cannot match terms with voiceover at all. Please keep working on it as it is difficult for me to see what to do on the screen.
  • Good vocabulary builder

    Busuu is a language learning app that can be used offline and is therefore very portable. The app allows students to take a pretest to determine at which level they should start their own learning. The app offers vocabulary and an audio dialogue for free. The vocabulary lists are presented with pictures and audio and are set up as flashcards with quick comprehension checks throughout the exercise. The vocabulary lists are extensive and pertain to topics that a person living in or traveling in a French speaking country would potentially need to know. This makes the learning more relevant to the real world for my students. The dialogue sections offer listening comprehension with a cloze activity. If you are looking for a way to increase your vocabulary in French, this is a good app. It is not set up like a game, so it is simply memorization and listening practice. There are quiz options, writing sections, and a way to have native speakers check your work. However, these extra activities are only available with a paid subscription. The mobile app indicates the activities that are free with a blue icon and those that need to be part of a subscription with a gold icon. There are many more activities with the subscription than without. Also, with high school students, it is a privacy issue to have them communicating online with people that they do not know, so I would not be able to encourage the use of that feature. I really like the ability for the students to move at their own pace and to learn relevant vocabulary. I would recommend this app to my students with that goal in mind.
