  • Is it counterfeit?

    By CLeo!?X
    Mine stopped working with the update too. Their support told me that I must have gotten a counterfeit app and that I should ask for my money back from Apple. I bought it through through the Apple App Store. Is it possible that it is counterfeit? Either way, I would like my money back since the advanced hours that I paid for disappeared quickly and there is no way I can get them back! Whom do I contact?
  • Brutal pronunciation

    By Brionkendo
    How can you guys listen to this? the pronunciation is terrible.
  • I wish it would work!

    By UltimateBLC
    There seems to be a compatibility issue with the latest iOS, because it won't download the in app purchases, which are the only way to use the app. I tried closing and reopening the app...even deleting and reloading. I contacted support but never received an answer. I really want to try this course! Wish the app would work because I have no desire to order CDs. Update: support fixed the issue and I LOVE this app! Highly recommend. After 3 hours, I'm already speaking to my daughter who has taken Spanish for 5 years.
  • Awesome

    By AgingStreetWalker
    Best method I've experienced for learning Spanish conversation.
  • Buggy on iOS 8

    By ssl2go
    I'd give this a 4 or 5 if it wasn't for the random pausing of the app. Very annoying when you're focused on the lesson.
  • Good audio and visual exercises

    By Quake 618
    After four years of high school Spanish, this app points out some obvious pronunciation and verb tendencies that I don't recall learning before.
  • A great way to learn at a cheap price

    By HoPaint
    The app has some minor bugs, but the lessons are terrific. Teaches you to create & converse in complete sentences.
  • Best way to succeed

    By newparlon
    It might not have all the bells and whistles of some other apps, but the teaching and learning is solid. If you really want to speak, this is the way to do it.
  • Good lessons, buggy app

    By shinypenny13
    The instruction is great. I love that it has Michel teaching two naive learners rather than just talking. I like hearing the students' errors and Michel's corrections. He teaches in a natural way, making you learn instinctually but also explaining things in English. This is NOT an immersion program. I love it, though. Unfortunately, the app has issues. 1. Never starts me where I left off. Usually two lessons behind. 2. Often cannot scroll down or tap to open the lessons at the bottom. I contacted support, and they advised me to reinstall the all and redownload the hours I had purchased. I did that, and the problems remain. I emailed support again to explain this, and they did not respond. I also asked if I could transfer my purchases to the MT "languages" app. No answer. Also FYI the MT "languages" app has hours 9 and 10. Wish I had known before getting started with this app. Still, when I skip through the lessons and find where I was, etc., I do find the lessons very enjoyable. I spoke some Spanish to a coworker and understood what she said to me. I am on hour 5 in this app.
  • Great Method to learn a new language

    By Bayfit
    If you're new to the Mochel Thomas Method of learning you'll be pleased to find yourself constructing your own sentences by the first couple of lessons. It's like their Audio Lessons but broken up in their In-app purchased with the options of flash cards. Highly recommend it. Rosetta gets you picking flash cards and saying sentences like "little boy eats." You'll have to stick with it for several hours to get more useful sentences. With Pimselur your like a parrot, repeating sentences and they have a great way of breaking down sounds but it took longer for me to come up with my own sentences. The classroom style teaching helped answer questions I had on pronoun citation and application that I didn't get with the other two.
