Best app for memorizing french vocabs.. I love this app.
I love this app.
This is the best French vocabulary app out there. I have downloaded dozens and deleted almost all of them but this app has always stayed. I love it. It's traditional and helpful and simple.
This is a great flash card system.
This app has taught me a lot of new words and the rating system of how well you knew the flash card is great. I feel like I'm learning the words long term instead of short term. To learn a language you need to practice every day and spend time in it and this app helps when I'm not using pimsleur french In the car. Merci beacoup! ;)
Really smooth app, great learning system and usability. It's actually fun to use which is so important in language learning.
Amazing! My 4 year plan in school doesn't give me time for a French class, so this app is perfect.
This application is in many ways practical, yet saves us time . It can fit easily into our schedules no matter how full these are. However, still highly interactive and innovative to retain our attention and concentration. The cards method is even fun to be tried one is bored by its challenging yet not impossible attitude.
Installed the app yesterday and love it so far.
French is the words of love!!!!! French comes Peres the city of love
This is a great app for the novice French "learner." It is easy to install and easy to navigate through. I would definitely recommend this app
It would be great if you could use them both french-->english and English-->french
I downloaded about 20 French vocab apps, and this is the only one I use on a regular basis. I love that it learns with me, so that I can easily and naturally progress in my learning. The vocab is well chosen, it is stuff I actually use on a regular basis. The pronunciations are very good and accurate. It is expensive to buy the full app but for me it was worth it. Every day I use this app while riding the Paris Metro!
Such an amazing app, I can now speak to my elephants in French! Bon chance!
Great app. Really like the system used to rate how well you know a word or phrase. It is similar to what I used to do as a child with flash cards.
Great app , with creative idea to teach , thank you
Flash cards work fine, but pronunciation only audible with my headphones on (discovered per brainscapes recommendation). This needs to be fixed on their end.
With the latest version, it crashes as soon as it opens, which makes it worthless.
Don't UPDATE if u don't have Brainscape account. This update will change your paid version into an in app purchase. You will have to buy the flashcard again UNLESS you have an account and synced the flashcard. To sign up for an account, go to the top left/right
Crash as soon as it open in iPhone 5 iOs 6.1.4
A nice tool to use with Duolingo for supplemental study. Very pleasant female French voice in the cards studied so far.
App crashes as soon you open it. I guess it would be nice if I could actually see how the app works.
Excellent methodology to help French learners who lack vocab power.
The latest update makes the app crash. Please Fix! The app is the best tool to learn French!
Excellent resource. I have used flash cards for this purpose many times, but this app makes it so much more convenient and effective.
I am using Rosetta Stone to learn French, and this tool in addition has done wonders for my learning. Very happy!!!
The colors, the number of words, the presentation, and the no bull-crap fancy visuals make it VERY practical, easy to use, and fun! I spend hours on this app just enjoying the learning of French. The only complaint I can imagine now is that some of the words have terrible audio during pronunciation. It literally sounds like the app team went into a crowded cafe in France, asked some random dude to say a word into a crappy microphone while he's busy eating. Other than that, top notch! Thank you.
This is a great vocabulary app! My vocabulary is improving tremendously - I find myself using my new vocab when I talk to my friends (which is the point) and its making a huge difference how I express myself.
I learned pretty fast. I wish the the french verb conjugation flash cards would also come with audio.
Great French app, so useful!
I appreciate the pronunciation and the repetition of words i dont know well. Fun to watch my progress. Some of the word hints are unclear, however. Also, it occasionally quits for no apparent reason
After using for a couple of weeks it started crashing when I selected the red category for I don't know the word. That makes the flash cards unusable. They need to fix this major bug.
Great app for learning French. It hasn't crashed on me yet and I did upgrade my 4S to 6.0. They plan on adding bookmarking, definitely what it needs. Four stars!
IT'S WONDERFUL !
Not bad but crashes on open in iOS6.
This is easily the best french vocab enhancing App available. But praise should be given to the entire Brainscape learning concept across all their releases. But again, my french vocab has improved a thousand-fold after diving into this...
Very effective for learning and reviewing vocabulary ... But now crashes on launch in ios6. I'll change to 5 stars when fixed.
I use this as a supplement to a full course I am taking. I find it very helpful.
Was really excited about this product, then it took 5 minutes to figure out because it kept on freezing. Furthermore, the sounds will not work and there are no settings to remedy this. Hope it gets fixed. Would love to give it a good review.
I love Brainscape's apps! I have their French verbs and vocab, German verbs, lite versions of Spanish verbs and vocab, Mythology, and Religion apps. They all work great and the algorithm (or whatever it's called that they use) helps you memorize information quickly. I recommend any of their apps! The only thing I wish they would do is pronounce the individual verb conjugations.
Have waited a long time for this. Merci!
Makes for a reasonably painless study of French.
Very useful for someone who has studied French but needs to review vocabulary
Most of the other reviews pretty much covered it. Great app.
