Description

Learn Spanish, French, Italian, German, and many more languages with Babbel. Developed by a team of language learning experts, Babbel has helped millions of people speak a new language with confidence. THE BABBEL METHOD Here’s what makes Babbel more effective than any other language learning app: 1. Confidence — Our goal is to get you speaking from your very first lesson. And our elegantly designed courses give you the confidence to get there. We teach you how to engage in practical, everyday conversations, making it easier for you to have authentic experiences in your new language. 2. Comprehension — Our lessons immerse you in relevant culture and real-life conversations. We want you to really take in the language, not just memorize useless phrases. And we provide helpful hints in English (or your native language) to make your new language more relatable. 3. Retention — We know you’re busy. That’s why our lessons are short but sweet: about 10-15 minutes, and designed to send your new language straight to long-term memory. We regularly refresh your memory with our dynamic review sessions, which target areas where you need improvement most. Finally, we make sure you really grasp what you’re learning by bringing it back later in a new context.

    I really do like this app a lot. However, I would change a few things about it. I am using it for Spanish I wish that you could test out of them early lessons so that the app could figure out where your fluency level really is and the lessons could be cured more specifically toward your learning. It feels like torture going through the early lessons when I have had some Spanish. I also really wish that I could choose Latin Spanish versus Spain Spanish. I don’t want to include the VOSOTROS but it makes me! A couple of other things, sometimes it wants you to include the pronouns and sometimes it doesn’t but it’s not always clear. So I get some wrong because those instructions arent specific. What I really wish is that it included more activities that forced you to translate what you hear. I feel like this is the hardest part of learning a language. Is making sure that what you hear from a Foreign language speaker is what you think you hear. So I’m still on the hunt for the best app that will give me that!

    Charged me $30. I don’t even have this app on my phone and it is not a subscription I have chosen to have, and it is not on my iTunes account. It will take your money without permission!!!

  • Poor speech recognition

    I couldn’t even get past the beginning lessons because of the poor speech recognition. I know my device (iPhone X) works flawlessly but couldn’t get the lesson to register if I’d said a word right or wrong (even though the little volume thing fluctuated showing it could hear me). Not worth the frustration.
  • Good Teacher / Good Company

    I used Babbel for a few months to learn German. I learned a lot and what I learned stuck well. I slowly had less time to study, so I stopped using it. I forgot about the auto-renewal but even though they did not have to, they refunded my money after I explained to them I hadn’t used it in several months. This is not to say that all should expect that of them, but I respect the company for being courteous to their customers.

  • Learning Deutsch

    I really enjoy the interactive aspect of this learning module. I only wish that I could utilize the microphone option on my MacBook Air laptop. I like using the keyboard in German on the laptop which I really think helps to learn the entire German alphabet. The pop up keyboard in the Babbel app on my I Pad is way too simple without the option for capital letters or the ö,ü,ä and ß, this is the one essential item that needs to be changed. If I could use the speech option on my laptop I would be 100% satisfied.
  • Could use improvement

    I believe the app is good not great . I believe it would be great if one would be able to click next , Instead of automatically being taken to the next question so one would have time to study the words , sentences and listen to it over a few times. I’ve also taken “quizzes “ Or reviewed the section when I was never taught how to use what I was being quizzed. I do believe had I been able to stay on the page That was just completed I could have looked at the way the sentence was put Together and learned more. I also would have been able to listen to the way the word(s) and sentence was pronounced if that option were to be available . The way it’s set up now I have to redo the whole section from the very beginning which can be quite boring if there were only a few pages I needed to study.
