How I Use It
I like to use this as a tool to help students practice and engrain the fundamentals. I use it for fun, or for practice individually. Students can use this on other devices, all they need to do is log in and they can take the app with them anywhere, at home at school or wherever. It's very repetitive which is what you need for a language learning tool.
My Take
I like this because it marks your progress and doesn't let you skip around. It lets you use reading writing translation speaking and listening. You can choose how dedicated you decide you want to be with the app, 5 minutes a day, 10, 20 or whatever, and you can have it send notifications to remind you of your progress. I wouldn't use this as an in class assignment and you can't work as a group because it's very individualized, but it's a great tool for practice.
