  • Too expensive

    By 3819384
    I loved the method of learning. First use in Mandarin Chinese I learned more than several weeks in Duolingo. The issue is how expensive it is to buy the course. The first one is free but to access the rest you have to pay 20 dollars a month per course. As a student I just don’t have that kind of money.
  • Great update

    By h_wolf
    The update is so much better. Already catching on to words very excited!!
  • Does not work with Bluetooth in auto

    By Tamsie12
    I love the program, hence why I bought a second volume. The first volume I had was the CDs. I wanted CDs again but that wasn’t an option. I only listen to this while I’m in the car. I just downloaded the lessons and cannot play them in my car. They may start playing for 3 seconds and then stop. I’ve tried to turn the car off and on. I’ve tried to connect and reconnect the Bluetooth. I believe that the app knows I’m in the car because it does show “driving” in the corner. Very frustrating. I know my Bluetooth works because I am able to listen to other things with no problems. Mr.Developer, can you please investigate? Thank you.
  • Great if you can stay awake

    By MsGlitter Girl
    I speak Spanish but it’s not great so I downloaded this program to improve my pronunciation. The first levels are very fundamental and can get boring if you are further along or already speak the language. I find it hard to stay awake through a single lesson and would never use it while driving. Overall a fun app to use for practice. Very redundant at moments but I guess that is part of the learning progress. I would recommend for a beginner, not intermediate or advanced unless you are up for a good nap.
  • Maybe add a few things

    By tisgoodd
    Overall it’s the best app ever used but I would add “A list of all the words that I learned” or a search box. It is already categorized which is nice but I need a quicker way to find words that I learned
  • Well..

    By DontJudge120
    I mean.. yeaa it's ok. It have a good idea but I feel like we should get more than 1 audio for free and you have to pay to listen to others. It's also pretty glitchy.. ;-; not really satisfied..
  • 4hrs?

    I’ve had the app for approximately 4hrs and it’s already crashing?? If you want the business, fix the app.
  • Disgusting

    By Сергей Овсеенко
    Good method, bad app
  • Bad App

    By gabitu77
    I don’t understand why they can’t make a proper app. The app is too slow to load, and on top of that every time I go from one level to another or one language to another it froze and gives me a white page and I can’t do anything. I had to delete the app and download it again many times. I’m learning French and Spanish and since yesterday I can’t enter the app, it starts loading and suddenly it stops. I will download it again for the 5th time now.
  • Pricey

    By Unicorn evil monkey magic
    Honestly I love the app! It’s such a great learning experience. The only thing I have a slight problem with is the price is. I’m not willing to pay that much...although others might disagree. This is just my personal opinion and thought.
