  • Errors in the program

    By BuonaB
    I like it in general though it doesn’t substitute for actual classes, but in the Kindle version there are errore in the program. In the imperative refresher section there is a page missing and questions re verb endings that don’t indicate what number or formal v. Informal. Is ther a way to get a corrected version?
  • Very basic to start

    I have found voice recognition to be less than optimal. I have been saying”si” for many years, and find it incredible that I am counted as being incorrect four or five times before the app approves. Also the roll through is often slow and balky. Content so far is good; repetitive and redundant, which is somewhat annoying, but ultimately will help with retention. I speak fair Italian, far from fluidly or fluently, but use this app for practice. The thing with “si” was maddening.
  • Self correct

    Wish there was a button that would allow one more attempt to self correct instead of seeing that answer was counted incorrect for a typo.
  • FUN and USEFUL

    I began my Italian lessons during last week when we were off work due to flu and a broken toe. Bored and frustrated, I decided to check it out. Well, it’s hard to wipe the smile off my face. It’s SO entertaining, it’s so much fun, it’s something I can start and stop at any point at any hour, and it’s very stimulating to my brain. I’m extremely happy with this product. I have tried another product some years back but it didn’t teach me verbs the way this one does, and it was not nearly as visually appealing. This is a really great product, very inexpensive, and I plan to continue. Enjoy. Ciao!
  • Buonissimo!!!

    I purchased Babbel to learn Italian and I was honestly so delighted with how much I learned in so little time. You get to hear, read, and write translations which makes it so easy to remember the words you have learned, no matter what learning style works best for you. The review section is also great for when I need refreshers on phrases from previous lessons. Overall, it’s super easy to get started and there are different things ways you can review to make sure it sticks!
  • Great App!

    I am enjoying learning Italian on Babbel. It is engaging and very effective. I would recommend that in addition to lessons, there is a foreign language dictionary or introduction to new vocabulary in addition to the vocabulary presented in the courses. I feel that this would be helpful in learning more words.
  • Like the app, especially more advanced courses

    This app works well on a desktop and older iPad. They've made several improvements in recent versions for iPads, including adding voice features. The reson for 4 stars is that the voice recognition is often inconsistent, even on a desktop computer and using the recommended browser, Chrome. It seems to get stuck sometimes. But the other features work well. The recent site redesign is easy to navigate. I like the ability to review work multiple times in a variety of ways; it helps new information stick. I also like the native speakers in the Italian programs.

  • Difficult to cancel auto payment

    App is fine. The typing part of the lesson is a bit awkward. But what is really frustrating is to end the auto payments. I’m hoping that I have done it - but don’t feel confident that it’s canceled.
  • Very good!
