  • This is the worst app. Don’t waste your money!!

    By nancannrudy
    This app is not for beginners. I starts speaking to neighbors and you have no clue where you are in terms of the language . In animals you think ok they are going to teach you the names of each animal but no, they teach you the stupid sound only. Who cares about sound when you don’t even know what the animal is called giving this sound. Don’t waste your money on this stupid app. I wish more people would have been honest about this app so that I did not spend my money
  • Not for Latin American Spanish!

    Though it tries to include Latin American Spanish words and pronunciations, it seems secondary. The voice recognition on the iPad app is terrible, perhaps in part because of this. It is heavily weighted toward European Spanish, so it might be fine if that’s what you want it for, I’m not sure. I do know that it’s very counterproductive if you’re planning on using it to speak in Mexico or Latin America.
  • Want to love it but....

    I have trouble with both design and function. My biggest gripe is that there are not more chances to speak the language. My second biggest: I find the most challenging part of using this app is trying to type in the correct letters. The keyboard they provide is too small for the app to be used comfortably on the phone. For us perfectionists, trying to tho things perfectly means going back sometimes five or six or more times in the ten question review. The voice response seems kind of touchy as well. Often I have to give up after ten or more attempts to get the green light! Yet other times when I know I have mumbled something, it passes me! If they would improve that, give a larger keyboard, have more conversational chances, and even OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK YOUR ANSWERS(!) it would be much better! Also, as a child raised in a family that spoke Mexican Spanish (like from the fifties), I often find myself going, “THAT’s the word?” Then several lessons later (and I mean the BIG lessons, not the smaller lessons within the lessons), FINALLY it will say “in Latin America....” Also, I take issue with their use of English... Why should we not be presented with “to whom” Rather than “Who......to” That happens through out the app. If they are trying to teach “proper” Spanish (to the extent that I feel like I’m learning a whole new language), why not use “proper” English to learn from? I also have had some trouble trying to figure out the best way to use this. The lessons sometimes seem all over the place. Other than that, Mrs Lincoln is enjoying the presentation.
  • No Sound

    It would be a good app but there is no sound when I press the icons for words to be spoken. So it’s basically useless. I think I wasted my money.
  • Excellent app but why so España-centric?

    First. I love the way this app is structured. I am a heritage speaker (my mom is from Mexico) but even though I grew up hearing Spanish; I don’t speak as well as I would like. I have used duolingo for a long time; and I like it - but am at the point where I need to go beyond just adding new vocabulary. I want to better understand the grammar and focus on conversation. in this regard; the app is excellent. I just wish the app offered an option for ‘LatinAmerican’ Spanish. When that happens this app will be perfect.

    Can this help me learn Spanish?so I can talk to people because I’m struggling
  • Not Latin American Spanish

    By DwightAB
    I really want to lean Latin American Spanish that I can use with my friends in the US and in Mexico. No one in the US, Mexico or Centra America speak Castellano. I loved using Babbel, but, they only offer European Spanish. Bummer.
  • I won't renew this app

    By Whirlebird
    You have to guess which person the app is asking for - between formal and informal - and a lot of times the correct answer is ruled incorrect, even though the given answer and the correction are identical. Also, if you stop in the middle of a lesson on iPad, you have to start the lesson over when you return. AND, for some reason, lessons already finished come back as brand new, uncompleted lessons if you shut down your iPad at the wrong time ( which I haven't figured out yet). Also, I just missed 25 questions and was told "Great Job - you're on the right track!" ???
  • Very difficult to understand the mans voice and pronunciation.

    Not helpful for a beginner. Not the best if you’re interest is for Latin America. Tech support is non existent..
  • Needs some work but has a lot of potential :)

    This app does have a lot of information in it to learn but it lacks in actually helping you learn. I would suggest an option to practice your mistakes over and over until you get a perfect score in each level. The repetition would help me learn. Also, I would like if we could control going forward between each question in order to re read it or translate. It just automatically pushes you to the next question and I never have time to read the whole sentence. I also wish I could opt out of the “vosotros” in the Spanish lessons because I have no interest in learning it. It is also annoying that there is no back button. And also no way to keep track of progress on the main screen. It’s very hard to navigate and keep track of what I have done and what I want to do.
