I LOVE this app! I was really sceptical about it, especially as I'm a language teacher myself, and I was worried I would soon get irritated by the music. But not at all! I listen to it every day on the way to work, and my journey wouldnt be the same without it now to be honest. I'm sure everyone thinks I'm crazy mouthing along to it on the metro!

I've tried several Cantonese programs, CD's and App's and this program just works. It's simple and fun. I hope they come out with Volume 2 soon!

This is such a fun way to learn Dutch. I love how they say the English phrase first, and then the Dutch phrase. And then say it one by one, so that you have a good idea of how to say it. I would highly recommend it to anyone who's interested in learning Dutch and going to the Netherlands. Believe me, you will not be disappointed in it.

I've been using this app for around 3 weeks on my daily commute to and from work and have found it a fantastic tool for developing a quick understanding of the basics required to get by on my annual french hols. I can't wait for the Earworms French 2 to come out, hurry up Apple and get the app released!!! Many thanks, great product.

Now volume one after working through it both with just audiobooks as well as app, this is worth having by a long shot. Hearing the German language being spoken by some friends, I can certainly say that since using both, having the opportunity to read the words in the app, I think is essential for learning. How else can we get to learn? I'm already remembering German words and they are basic communication tools for doing certain stuff. Very impressed, looking forward to vol.2 of the app. Been confirmed by the company through email that it is in the pipeline.

This makes learning greek so very easy and best of all its FUN The music makes it easy to retain and the native greek speaker helps you with the correct pronunciation. I've just returners from two weeks holiday on one of the greek islands and several times was mistaken for greek as apparently my pronunciation was so good. Excellent value for money and a real winner in my book.

I have been learning Italian for 2 years and have bought books, cd's you name it I've got it but these are in my view the best on the market. I listen going to work, I sometimes listen at night whilst dropping off to sleep and they really are fantastic! I can't rate them highly enough. Before Earworms I knew maybe a dozen words now I can converse with waiters and Italian friends and make myself understood. Download these marvellous resources now!

The structure and pronunciation, the commentary and repetition are a fantastic way to learn. Not exactly musical, though. This really helped me in Japan. But arigato gozaimus for the lessons. Terrific.

I didn't ever want to learn Polish, whoever invented the language made the basic error of using letters together that ought never be anywhere near each other let alone in the same word!!! Anyway after living with a Polish woman for the last eight years and producing two gorgeous children who can speak Polish..and talk about me without me having a clue what they are saying! I decided it was finally time to learn I have to say that it's absolutely brilliant, it's actually fun to listen to ...and you're actually learning as well. Quite simply it is easy listening and not a chore or boring at all. The two people used on the recording are superb and it's great to listen to them as they sound great and have such rapport. 10/10 to Earworms!!

Great app. Makes such a difference. Friend recommended these after trying the Japanese one and she's completely right - It just sinks in. So much better than a translator app where you get a bunch I words or simple phrases.

Brilliant app. I use it everyday and enjoy listening as I walk my dogs and I've picked up all the words and phrases without even trying. Looking forward to using second app.

Here is a small selection of earworms reviews from the Apple iTunes Store. Thanks to everyone who has commented, its very much appreciated.

Amazing app, incredible support Very fast response time from developers. Eager to assist in case of problems. Will definitely support by purchasing other language courses as well.

It really works! This app has achieved what 4 years of classroom French never could! When can I buy vol. 2?

It really works! I've been using with headphones at work,sinks in quick and becomes an 'earworm' and you suddenly know stuff! Intermediate please dev!

Fantastic! It is an excellent app. The music really helps learn easily. You can see the text while you are listening.

Excellent! A great, high quality app. I wouldn't waste my time with any other language learning app. The music and dialog gets stuck in your head which is good!

Easy to listen to again and again... I've been wanting to learn another language for a while but I've never been able to find the time. But recently I've found myself doing a daily four-hour commute and had to find something to fill the time.

The presentation of this app is clean and tidy. The production values are high. The scripted dialog of the tutorials are light-hearted without being difficult to listen to over and over again. Worth the money. I'm looking forward to Vol. 2.

Am going to Venice in few weeks and got this to try. It's easy to listen to and I am finding the words and phrases are sticking quickly. Will definitely use in the future for other languages. Great if you are going away and like to work on local language skills when you travel.

It's a unique and I feel very effective way of grasping the basics. The rhythmic tunes provide the platform for each section, the words or phrases overlaid to match and are repeated several times before moving on to the next, enabling you to really practice pronunciation against the 'native' speaker.
Stacks Image 583

The informal presentation of this also adds to its appeal, sometimes with a tongue-in-cheek approach highlighting some instances where the English speaker may have particular difficulty and so on.
Stacks Image 83

The format and layout is visually pleasing and easy to use - a perfect little app for iPhone! You can also follow on-screen as they are speaking through each module, and as the text is written in both literal and phonetic it makes it far less daunting and more accessible.

An innovative way to learn foreign languages - Now imagine if the lyrics of a pop song ''I dance/you dance'' were replaced with foreign words and conversational phrases - Voila! The language would eat into your brain like a virus, which is the genius idea behind the earworms Musical Brain Trainer.
