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.

  • Better than anticipated

    I speak Spanglish pretty well and wanted to be better. I want to speak with better verb conjugation and use the words in the correct order. This has been a tremendous help. I have recommended it to many people already.
  • Love it!

    Learning German isn’t easy, but this app is very helpful.

    Super basic learning. Most times when you’re to fill in the correct spelling, it’s scrambled in the correct order. I think I prefer duolingo (but that has its own issues- at least it’s free).
  • App was okay until redesign

    The app was great until the redesign has made the voice recognition even worse than before!
  • Learning and enjoying at the same time

    I have been wanting to learn French for a very long time but never had time. I decided to take this basic French course and am so impressed with how much I’ve learned so far. I will continue this course and do some other things to supplement what I’m learning. I think the way the course is laid out makes a lot of sense and is very interesting. Love it.
  • Balanced Information

    I’ve used Rosetta Stone and taken classes at a local college for German. Babbel is a good mix of the two. The frustrating thing about Rosetta Stone is the assumption that the student can intuit the meaning of the words by the photos. With Babbel the translation is at hand. I appreciate the inclusion of grammar rules. For example, it is a great help to know when and why to use a particular verb tense. I’ve only used the program for a few weeks but so far it is extremely helpful. It is also very helpful to be able to access the app on both my phone and tablet.
  • Effective with Dedication

    I purchased with a 50% off discount and have now been taking at least one lesson daily. As with all educational endeavors, to develop strong skills requires dedicated effort. Babbel makes the process engaging, if not occasionally a little frustrating. I would appreciate more opportunities to practice the skills as I learn them. I have recommended Babbel to a friend already.
  • Lessons advance so slowly

    By sidechain dodson
    This is probably one of the most frustrating apps. Each lessons advances so slowly. You are always waiting for the app. There is a pause between everything and you can’t force the app to advance to the next phrase or word. You have to sit there and slowly listen to each like even though you may know it. It’s hard to make progress when there is so much wait time. They need a feature where you can quickly advance.
  • Too much typing

    I’m working on the early lessons, and most interested in speaking. I am not really keen on the parts of the lesson where you type by selecting preset letters – if you want to include written lessons, I would prefer tying from a regular keyboard. Otherwise I prefer to just practice speaking.
