This is a decent app that has been getting pretty regular updates through the years. Far from a language course, it serves as a study tool that you can use during those "hidden moments" throughout the day. Considering the lack of decent Amharic learning resources out there, I am tempted to give this app 5 stars. However, I definitely see room for improvement and will leave that last star when I feel it's truly been earned. Great job though and thanks for helping others learn this difficult language.
I really like this app. It is one of the few apps to learn amharic. I would suggest three things:1) Allow for sound per "letter"without having to narrow down to the group. 2) Have in the settings to allow users to choose if they want the English letters to help with the pronunciation ( i am trying to learn to read Amharic but having the english letters always makes me cheat, it is almost impoosible not to look at the English letters) 3) Add a quiz feature for the alphabet and words Besides these suggestions I think this is the best app to learn amharic
I would like to say that this is the best app you could have in Amharic at the moment. I am very happy with it. but I would like suggest an improvement, the app has a lot of vocabulary, but sometimes when I want to know a word and I search it, the app doesn't have it. example; "cheat" , "mad" and many more. i have a dictionary it's not a problem for me to find these, but it would be nice if the author would add maybe 50 words a month to the vocabulary, it would grow and grow and in time it will even replace my dictionary one day.
I have tried many phase books and computer program to learn Amharic over the years and this is by far the most interesting one. No book can help you if it doesn't keep your attention and if you don't have someone to speak with to improve. This app keeps my attention and allows me to hear what the words should sound like. My wife and daughter better watch out because now daddy will fully understand what there talking about very soon.
This is the best app I've downloaded for amharic. I thank you for all the time and energy to make this for those who are married into a Ethiopian. And as stated by you their will be more updates soon, so I'm looking forward to getting the time, colors, and nice things to express to you wife/ husband in amharic translated. Sorry for jumping ahead, it's just all excitement. Thanks
It's fun to check on a few phrases and hear the pronunciation, but there isn't much more here. I hope there are a lot more updates to add to the very limited word and phrase lists. Please expand the health section.
I am highly impressed with this pioneer amharic software. It can be used as a reference for adults or a teaching mechanism for kids. I really like to thank the software developer in his efforts to bring the sound of HAHU to the apps world.
