How I Use It
This app is a great way to learn a new language. I've used it personally to practice Spanish skills. I enjoy the way it both teaches skill and assesses your skill in a fun format. I especially enjoyed the way the "coach" texts or emails you encouragement to continue building your skills. I've had students practice with the app and they have enjoyed using it.
My Take
It's a very fun, non threatening way to learn a new language. It works well for both visual and auditory learners. Having a daily goal helps to keep students excited to learn and progress. Overall it's a great app for learning and practicing a new language.
