    "I am currently using this app to learn Italian. I am going on vacation in a few months to Italy and I wanted to be able to navigate the city and learn a bit of the language so I am more comfortable in a foreign country. This is fun and easy to learn. It's really a game, I play with it at least twice a day for a half and hour or so and I can really remember and use what I learn. I practice with my grandpa who speaks Italian and he is so pleased and surprised at my progress. They have many other languages to learn so give it a try. "

    "This is a great concept;however, in the initial blurb about the services it is able to provide, the translating part should be highlighted and prominent. For travelers they are not so much interested in learning the language but they do want their needs met."
