Kids say (1):

Ask anybody who has learned Spanish as a second language and they will tell you that learning how to properly conjugate verbs is the most challenging aspect -- it's also an aspect missing from BASIC SPANISH FOR DUMMIES. The app gives you a very limited Spanish-English dictionary and flashcards for various "common phrases" (like "I've just been robbed"). In the "Basics" section of the app, you'll get to see some conjugated verbs, but rules or instructions on how to conjugate are nowhere to be found. The app needs a lot more to it in order to be a truly useful tool.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
