  • Nice but not perfect

    By Gatorgirl352352
    I like that it makes it easy to see others that are learning. I’m already “fluent” in a language and take learning seriously. But there are some pros and cons: Pro: nice layout, smooth app, has characters and pronunciation and listening... actually the price at 50% off is decent... but the glaring issue is con #1. Without the sale price it’s just not worth it because of the long list. Cons: it’s not obvious how to start at any given level. Why am I at step 1 and how do I get to intermediate? I don’t have 50 hours to re-do a language from 0. This is why I haven’t paid and won’t pay until I get out. I also don’t like the lack of obvious curriculum. What units, grammars, etc are actually covered? I have no idea what I’ll study in the year of access, but worse is not knowing what I’m paying for. I also find having locked features that take up or block 35% of the screen frustrating. It won’t let me finish a lesson because I haven’t taken the quiz. But only paying members can take the quiz. Sometimes it lets you start the quiz, and after answering one question it locks into sales mode again. Also frustrating is that I can’t seem to “lock” people / correction matches to certain languages or regions. It isn’t obvious if I can actually message them privately either if I made a friend. If they fixed these things, I’d be so happy to pay for a year or two. Until then, I’m just frustratedly hoping updates fix things or I find the info I need somewhere off the internet.
  • Great app to learn, is magical

    By The Man from Sunrise
    You learn the meaning of the words, the use, grammatical concepts, conversations , and the community of users would help you to correct your mistakes. Can’t be better.

  • Exactly what I needed to learn and understand German!

    By Ireland Brass
    I’ve taken college classes, used all sorts of books, duolingo, and none of them ever helped me understand the Deutsch sentence structure nearly as well as Busuu has! 5/5 stars
  • Good app

    By LauGuevara93
    I like to practice my English skills with this app
  • Best for language learning!

    By achikyay
    Busuu uses the right combination of listening skills, repetition and fill in the blank to make you learn in as many ways as possible. I sampled all the big language learning apps looking for the best one. This one is it

  • Best I’ve found!

    By Jordyn530
    I have tried a lot of language apps, and this one is the best. It engages with you as much as you want and helps you to actually achieve your language goals.
  • Excellent app

    By LMAching
    Excellent app and I actually feel like I’m in class learning. A lot better than other programes I have tried. I also like that native speakers correct my work.

    This has really helped me talk to my grandma and having conversations with her instead of just sitting there awkwardly. Thank you busuu!
