    The developers of this app are well known for producing other educational based apps and already have a number of well regarded apps in the series that this app is a part of. If you are already familiar with these apps then the look and design of this app will be very familiar to you. All of the aspects that have made their previous apps a success; from the look to the functionality are all the same. A big bonus for the app in my opinion. The app itself aims to help users understand and improve upon their abilities with the English language through everyday situations making the learning of the language more geared towards real life rather than the fundamentals and mechanics of the language itself.
