I love the fact that this does not encourage all day binging. It gives you enough content to place a focus on so that you can practice hard and return to it for review and new challenges. It encourages you to return every day. Conceptually, it is perfect for me. However, on Android, I have a limitation of only being able to return after 20 hours. My schedule is not consistent enough to follow this. Therefore, if I can return for practice after 18 hours, but not again within 24 hours, I lose my steak (again). It becomes discouraging. Other apps allow greater leniency, allowing with continued excitement. Drops would do well to make a change for Android
Awesome awesome awesome
I love it
Thank you for the enjoyable experience.
easy word identification. I like it so far :-)
I love drops it is very cool to speak more languages and I always want to have more time but I can’t get premium because it costs money sadly but I still love the app
I’ve downloaded several learning languages apps and I am firstly surprised that this app had Cantonese! Secondly the software is incredible super easy to learn keep up the great work guys!
Going to Iceland and this is helping
I remember everything that drops teaches me and it is very fun to do drop when I have the time. I do not regret downloading drops best app ever
The Drops interface is gorgeous and the easy drag or tap functionality is great, but Drops is not so much a language learning app as it is a vocab/expression builder. I’ve been refreshing my Italian and have been delightfully surprised to learn words I’ve never come across before, but there isn’t any sentence building, grammar or cultural lessons to put any of these words in context. If I were learning a language I’ve never studied, this app would only familiarize me with select words and phrases without explaining why articles or agreements differ or how to string together a unique sentence. Disappointingly, there are quite a few words Drops added that are essentially the same in Italian as they are in English. Granted, many languages use words from other languages, but I think it would be more worthwhile to teach words that are completely different or have radically different pronunciations (even if they are the same words). You can choose to hide these words so they never come up in practice sessions, but that seems like a waste to me. I enjoy practice setup, but I still don’t understand the purpose of some of the exercises. One requires you to spell the word by connecting the correct letters in a jumbled grid of letters. I find this cumbersome and would prefer to type out the spelling. Same goes for a different exercise where six letters are displayed below the image and you have to, once again, spell out the word. Each time you select a letter, the letters below change so it takes a long time to spell out something like “io taglio a dadini.” None of the exercises explain why or how they are supposed to help you learn the language (though the matching exercises are self-explanatory), and I feel this is a missed opportunity to strengthen the learner’s understanding of what they’re doing. There are also no speaking exercises, so you’ll get no feedback on whether you’re repeating the audio correctly. Fun and quick, but premium (which I did try at the discount rate for $2.95/month) is not worth it.
