First things first: this language learning appbusuu, is free to download and use, so its merits and shortcomings should be assessed from a cost-benefit perspective.
The concept of matching pictures with words as you improve your Gaulish vocabulary is hardly world changing, but the sound bites of spoken French provide a friendly touch, while the little letter rearrangement games are fun.
To complete a section, you must complete tasks up to a certain skill level, which means that progress depends on concentration. The ‘busuu-berries’ reward system is a bit silly but will appeal to younger users.
A nice little app for beginners, one with the option to pay to upgrade to access “premium content”, which provides corrections to your writing exercises and what is enticingly called “units of grammar”.
