Good learning tool for vocabulary and pronunciation 5/5
By MTB Stoker
Simple, quick, self explanatory and effective.
One thought: I do most of my work on an iPad Pro, and split screen to write down the vocabulary. This would be much simpler and easier to use for me in landscape mode, but this seems to only have iPhone mode (portrait).
Any chance that can change?
Incorrect Translations 1/5
By Travis 303
In the fifth lesson it says “muy bueno” means “beautiful” which isn’t correct...
Hope I’m not leaning everything wrong now. Should probably fix this issue.
I love this app, helps a lot with learning the true root meanings. ♾
Has potential 2/5
This could, in theory, be a great way to learn a language. Like I have seen in other reviews and from personal experience, gendered nouns are crucial to fluency. Could this be done with a similar thing to the romanized version of, say, Russian? There's also the one lesson free, the rest are paid. With the "unlimited lessons" on the pop-up, I felt like I might just get one lesson per day, but I only get one. Ever.
Too many loan words. (Japanese) 3/5
It’s a decent app but there’s little room to customize the experience. I don’t like how 3/4 of the words are basically English words. Give me something that’s foreign to my mind, I can figure out loan words by hearing them.
This is mostly a problem at the beginner level. If I go for intermediate, it’s too hard because it is so kanji-reliant. I’d like if there was something between intermediate and beginner, or if you could view kanji and hiragana simultaneously so that I actually remember the kanji.
Do *not* upgrade beyond 1.0.16 — bait and switch alert! 🤯 1/5
You will *lose* the ability to access free lessons that you now have! 🤯
Also, the developer was not forthcoming that the “Review My Words” feature in 1.10 would require a subscription, otherwise I would have *never* upgraded! 🤯
Make it better! 3/5
It’s good for expanding vocabulary, but the spelling section needs an edit option.
I have been learning French on this wonderful app and soon I will be able to speak full French!! I totally recommend this app for kids And adults. It teaches you 4 words at a time so you can remember them easily and it has great goals for you to set so get lingo and try it out!!!!! 🙂🙂🙂🙂
Horrendous dissatisfaction 1/5
I downloaded this app because I wanted to learn Japanese.I learned the entire alphabet plus kanji, but not from this app.
English:lamp Lingo translation:らんぷ ranpu
It’s offensive at a certain point.These aren’t even translations!If you want to learn a different language you are better off with literally anything else.
I am loving this app. In the up coming fall break. My mom and I will be going to Italy. This app is helping me learn the basics of what to know before traveling. I would like it better if I could learn more classroom style with tests. To test my knowlage. Also to learn about food for a unit and the other important things to know
By lelita comino
I am very happy to learn English, is easy for me to learn like that I do not have enough time to go go the school to learn because have to work.
Lingo Needs Gender for Gemma! 1/5
Lingo provides a fun and thorough way to learn new vocabulary. But it does not included gender information! In German, this means you don’t know if the word must be preceded by der, das, die, den, dem, einen, einem, etc. German relies on gender articles to signify direct or indirect objects. If you leave them out you are just mumbling incoherently. My German teachers and German books stress the importance of leaning new vocab words AND their gender in order to be able to actually communicate in German! The iTranslate team has not committed to add gender to the Vocab list. I am wondering if they are leveraging a free Open Source vocab list and so don’t want to spend the time or effort to improve their software? :-( This is a serious oversight for a paid subscription tool. Please join me and tell the iTranslate team to get off their butts and add an essential feature that their users must have to be able to learn a new language!
I wish I could change languages 1/5
It said I had to PAY! To switch and not even 10 seconds in and I already have an add. I wish I could rate this 0 stars but I can’t. So what happened was I already learned all the Chinese words in school do I thought I could switch after no even one full lesson but I can’t. I wanted to take German or something else but I can’t. Will not be recommending this up to anyone.
By pretty decent but some issues
Really nice display with lots of options but everything is locked behind a paywall.
So I just got the app. And you may think wow! It’s so good and this person is wrong but I have only one problem. I want more languages! I want to learn Swahili! I am going to Tanzania, Africa and I want to be able to speak to them. Thank you
I can barely understand the voice saying the word.. it is not clear.
Some things 3/5
By Professor Dorfenshnoff
So, my reletives are from Brazil, and I wanted to speak Portuguese well. I only understand my mother, as she speaks very slow so I can hear what she is saying. But I knew for a fact that most of these pronunciations were wrong. I knew true was not pronounced correctly, so I need u to change that
1 LESSON! 2/5
By Christian Fartsweel
I was expecting to be able to have more than just one lesson. The app is advertised as free but as soon as you open the app it asks for money and if you don’t pay you are aloud only ONE free lesson.
No free option 1/5
I think that you would do better in comparison to your competitors like duolingo if you offered a free version of this app. I am personally still in school and was looking for outside help with my Spanish course and was disappointed that I was only able to access four words on your app.
FIVE STARS!!!!! 5/5
This is literally the best!!!
I have been wanting to learn Korean for a while and this app has EVERYTHING!
I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Korean or (any language of your choice of course)
I really love this app and I recommend it to anyone!!!
This review WILL stay💜💜💜
Good, but... 3/5
I’m only giving this app a 3 star because of these reasons:
1) On the good side, this app is great for quick and easy lessons to expand your vocabulary. It has a good concept.
2) It is extremely limited for a language-learning app. If you are thinking about using this as a vocab refresher, then that’s fine. However, this app can’t stand alone in teaching you any deeper than that.
3) It’s not free? At least, I thought it was! I can’t access anymore lessons! Not even one. After a time of using the app, they softlock you into buying their PRO upgrade, which in my opinion, may not be worth it compared to the competitors.
Slow and steady wins the race 4/5
So I just upgraded to the pro version of this app. I like that it teaches me four new words daily with the option of moving ahead, but I hope that as time progresses, the app will teach me sentences, and not just single words.
By Pastor Alvaro
He encontrado un aplicación seria u con buen potencial.
Thanks for taking all my money!!!! >:( 1/5
I was thinking let’s learn some new language so I downloaded this until today i was checking my money. Well guess what? I have no money left. I rate this zero stars. But I can’t put zero so I’m gonna have to put one. Thanks a lot Lingo...
More Free Lessons... 2/5
If you are unable to purchase a subscription, you only get one lesson, in which you learn four words, their spelling, and pronunciation.
Why i gave you 1 star, is not because of other flaws that people may have complained about but because of the fact that you can only take 1 lesson, and then nothing more. Otherwise, the app would honestly be great for learning a new language. I hope that you change this into something better, and listen to our complaints. Also, there is a 7 day trial, but then you have to pay, and my phone doesn’t let me pay for anything so i’m forced to accept the fact that i can only take 1 lesson and can’t even get that free trial. Please change this soon, please.
Not good for free read please 3/5
Okay listen. I am wanting to learn Italian so I thought this app was good for it. You have to pay five dollars per month for it though. If you go for free you get only one lesson. I was really bummed out. I know the people need to make their money and that is ok with me. But I was hoping for more. The first and only lesson was amazing I loved it. I love this app I just wish it gave me more lessons to learn Italian. I love this app and totally recommend it but you have to pay to get more lessons other than that this app was great.
Thank you for your time
And thank you for making this app.
By dogand lizard
Great tool for learning new woods
This app is good. One thing that frustrated me is we cant re-revise the words we already learned or get tested on them. Please consider this feature.
This is all wrong 1/5
You’re not even teaching me the lesson that well and you just start it you shouldn’t do like the end of the week test or something I hated it I listen to the words and you are pretty random stuff that I didn’t even hear you are bad app my daughter can you even say wrong in Spanish thank you for your time
Good but hard to learn 4/5
It's really fun well kind of fun but it's really hard to learn here is what I tried I tried Spanish and that's it I'm really bad at it I have to write it down on a piece of paper in the voice thingy is very hard to use because it because it it gets it wrong but it gets the sorry guys I'm not editing this so there might be like playing wrong words wrong words
Cool concept, grossly overpriced. 2/5
Cool idea, was actually looking forward to switching up my learning apps and use this to learn something new and unpredictable everyday... except you get one day trial + 7 free day trial with an automatic subscription of $6.99 a month. Yeah no thanks. I rather just open up a dictionary and chose 4 random words. I’d pay one time fee or something similar, but to charge me that much every month? Crazy.
It's stupid to use you to steal your money I do not recommend it 1/5

It's stupid to use you to steal your money I do not recommend it
Caution read terms of service carefully 1/5
By Hungry Skydiver
This app has a 24 hour cancellation clause. Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George couldn’t cancel his Dentist appointment because he didn’t have 24 hours in advance. Funny for a sitcom but definitely not funny if you have to pay for an unwanted month! Beware!
ADD MORE Launguages PLS 1/5
Add Afrikaans too the laungauges
Not worth a subscription 1/5
By D oh double
I enjoyed the app for a few days until it asked for me to pay for the monthly subscription. I exited and now I can’t start with out it popping up to pay. I don’t mind paying a one time price for a little app to help learn Spanish, if it could understand me. I never got one day were it recognized all four spoken words. I know how to say queso! I had better luck with duolingo.
Learn and have fun 5/5
By n rye
Fun when nothing going on. Easy and well organized
I have no idea what I paid for this and can not find help for a refund. I clicked to see what the price was and in error I purchased
Voice recognition is marginal when practicing words. No trouble with other apps.
Fantastic for helping with memorizing vocabulary 5/5
This app has helped me a lot when it comes to Korean vocabulary! It makes it really fun and enjoyable! The only thing I would recommend is that they add a portion to the app where you can review words you’ve learned through the app. Other than that, this app is so good!
Terrible Japanese 1/5
“Shisuta” is not sister, “homu” is not home. No japanese speaker would say this.
Sensible, easy and practical way to learn or improve the way to to speak, spell and read in any language. Excellent easy to use format as well, to accomplish this task.
BEST APP EVER 4/5
By Mema the wierdo
This is the BEST LEARNING-A-SECOND-LANGUAGE-APP EVERRRRRR!!!!!! Now I get A+’s on my quizzes instead of C-‘s:). And it’s easy and you get to correct your mistakes if you got a word very wrong, this really helped me in my Germany class! But the fact that there is a premium gets me sad even though you don’t need it! Just click the X on the top left of the screen (maybe right I don’t remember sorry). YOU WILL NOT REGRET DOWNLOADING THIS!!!
The voice recognition 4/5
By Mads Frazier
The app is alright, I’m learning Korean but the voice recognition needs to be worked on because I’m saying the right thing.
3 Areas Need Tweaking 3/5
1-As many others have stated no matter how perfectly you say the words, it says you miss pronounce one and four with a totally different word! That’s frustrating AND THEN ....
2- though it turns red & counts it as incorrect, at the end of the lesson when you click “my mistakes“ it says I have zero mistakes & perfect completion. So Either allow me to correct the mistakes that you say are wrong… Or stop counting my pronunciation as incorrect! You can’t have it both ways.
3- What’s most needed in this app is a “previous review” option or at least quiz me on random words I’ve had previously in my future lessons for RETENTION As you were unable to go back to review any previous lessons or even individual words.
Those slight tweaks, which require minimal work from developers, in an update, would make this a PERFECT & well thought-out app.
Can you add Arabic language
Best Around 5/5
This is so far the best I’ve seen for learning a new language...
When I was doing the speaking part, I said it right but it showed a wrong word. It happened many times.
