Reviews

  • Some strengths and weaknesses

    Pros: I think the types of words and phrases taught are very practical. The speakers are easy to understand. The lessons are logical and sensible. The app provides brief rules in addition to the memorization and repetition. Cons: the writing using the keyboard is a pain in the neck. Really slows down my pace. The reviews are poorly put together and not useful at all.
  • Good, but unsupported.

    I like this app a lot, but I'm giving it 2stars because the developers and/or Apple is trying to force me to buy a newer iPad. I hate that. I'm pretty sure it costs next to nothing to support older operating systems. There is literally nothing wrong with my iPad.
  • No access.

    I am supposed to have full access but whenever I try to open the app I get a “try again-error” message. I’ve deleted and downloaded again. Same result. I’ve never been able to access this app. Very disappointing.
  • Only made it to the second lesson

    I cannot hear the pronunciations but the app can hear me. I tried contacting support but got no response. I will be attempting to get a full refund.
  • Well designed, fun, manageable, practical

    Although I studied French for four years in school, it’s been over 30 years, so I started with the beginners course. Because some basics are still familiar, it’s moving quickly, but it is well worth my starting from scratch because I’d forgotten most of the finer points (e.g. proper use of prepositions) and my pronunciation is, ahem, rather poor. I have a couple suggestions: 1) it would be nice to have the option of repeating something within a lesson. Sometimes my mistakes are due to typos, not misunderstanding. 2) it would be helpful to know what exactly is not working when I mispronounce something. (I realize that may be a complicated thing to do—speech recognition would need to break down syllables, and then be able to explain to the student the problem, but, perhaps one day. It would be super helpful.). In the mean time, it would be helpful if one had the option of pronouncing the words more slowly at first—that might help me figure out which syllable is the problem. 3) I think there should be extra letters thrown in to make it a little more challenging when filling in the blanks. (Perhaps that happens later, but I think it would be good to start that in course 2.) Thanks for a terrific learning experience. I especially appreciate the way the review feature works. I definitely recommend highly to others!

    First off I really like the app, it’s easy to use, is fun to come to every day to get some studying in and I think it’s covering some useful stuff in the beginning category. A few things i wish it did - 1) don’t feed me the exact letters i need to spell the words, give a full keyboard so i have to think about it. 2) when i go to the review tab, rather than flash cards or written, a fully comprehensive review of all previously studied material would be helpful. Including speech 3) need more speech, for some of the conversation tabs have them be spoken instead of just written. 4) less prompts in English. Maybe this is because I’m still in the beginners section, but I think it’d be helpful in getting myself to think in another language if i weren’t relying on the crutch of English. The material is challenging and is well laid out, overall I’d give the app a 3.5 just because it falls a little short for me on some aspects. I know nothing beats in person study/speaking/listening so maybe that’s a bit harsh. Hope this helps!

    I’ve been trying for over an hour to cancel my subscription so it won’t automatically renew. I can’t find anywhere I can cancel my subscription. Don’t get sucked into this black hole

    Speech recognition is bad. Finished introductory lesson and they want my money right away. I will stick with Duo.
  • Another bogus “free” app

    You get the most most rudimentary level for free. Anything beyond that is subscription. Save your money and use Duolingo.
