      Really powerful app for learning languages

    • Pretati - Hindi

      Working in Nagpur

      star star star star star Howmanynicknamesmustitry?, United States,

      By far the best I have found; and that's coming from a multi-lingual person. The video of the lady pronouncing the phrases is excellent in providing a visual for the postures and mannerisms that go with the phrase. There is also a "slow down" option which is extremely helpful because Hindi is such a fast language. Worth every penny!
