I suggest you ...

More verbs...

This may have been addressed already, but I would like to see the vocabulary list expanded. I've come across a few verbs that my Spanish 2 students need to learn that are not included in the current version of CN (like 'torcerse'). It would also be helpful to add the option to make verbs reflexive (mover to moverse, for example).

    Hi Cory,

    I’ll try to find verbs that we don’t have, like torcer and torcerse, and do an update. That is an important verb, and I’m surprised it wasn’t in the Barron’s 501 essential verbs book that Conjugation Nation used for its verb list.

    However, we don’t want to quiz the user on obscure verbs, so we’re not going to overload the app with every verb we can find.

    Initially I limited the verb selection to 200 of the most essential verbs I thought people would use, but users requested more. When I added more, users complained there were too many. Can’t win here really :)

    If you find any other verbs that you think I should add let me know.

    I’ll be working on an update in March.

    Thanks,
    Gianni

        Gianni,

        I went through our curriculum for Spanish 1 and 2 and came up with the following verbs that our students learn, but couldn't find in your database. There are quite a few of them! I understand your point about having too many words to sift through, and so I understand if you don't add all of them. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

        Thank you Gianni! I appreciate your feedback. I understand that it's hard to find a good balance as far as the right number of verbs goes, and I also see others' point about having to sift through hundreds of verbs to find and select the right ones. You guys have a fantastic app here and I love using it!!! I'm trying to get it approved for purchase on my school's iPads so that my Spanish students can use it in class. Keep up the great work!

        Cory
