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.

  • Very hard to understand

    The woman is better than the man and I wish I could choose to hear a woman’s voice over the man. The man speaks too fast to understand and I am about to give up on this app.
  • Great app but with one big problem

    I’ve been using Babbel to learn German. I had previously used Duolingo but I can’t see how anyone could properly learn German with all the grammar explanations missing in Duolingo. I find Babbel to be a good, modern replacement for a German textbook. But Babbel has one major flaw IMO. In too many places, you only have one chance to hear the answer or to read the answer. Missed hearing that? Too bad. You’ll have to repeat the whole lesson to hear it again. There are places where you can hear things more than once and there is a lot of repetition but the makers don’t seem to understand that someone learning a language might want to hear a word or phrase over and over. Babel’s web app suffers this same problem. For me, this problem is so egregious that I was tempted to rate the app a 3. But I recognize all the good, hard work that went into developing it and gave a 4.
  • Lots of fun!

    I’m taking a trip to Norway and decided to learn the language. The learning experience has been so much! My wife, daughter, and I have a blast working through the lessons. And most importantly, we’re actually learning the language! Great app for a great price!

    Maybe I’m doing this wrong but I need to learn simple vocabulary first. I’m having to deal with grammar and sentence structure and am completely lost! I hope I’m doing something wrong or this is a complete waste of time and money!
  • Cost too much!!!

    This app costs way too much. There are many free language learning apps out there that are great, I will continue to use them and will delete this app until they let you learn a language for free.
  • I don’t really know

    This doesn’t have the language I was looking for. I wanted to learn Napali, my parent’s language. Because they came from a different country. So could you add that language please and I will give you 5 stars
  • Really worth it.

    This is both fun and well crafted. The audio is in real time rather than turtle time. I only wish they would do a course in Icelandic as well.

  • App syncs with website but website doesn’t sync with app

    Love the app overall compared to using the desktop version except for two things: - When I use the app for lessons it syncs back with the website showing I completed it. However, if I use the website for a lesson it doesn’t show I completed the lesson on the app. - The website allows me to correct my mistakes while the app doesn’t. I enjoy being able to go back and reinforce the correct item, and the app version once it’s wrong, it’s wrong.
  • Not working

    For one.. i purchased a year of Spanish and it never loaded on to my app, despite the fact that they charged my credit card via PayPal. Then.. after putting my password in, it said it was the wrong password which it was not, but I reset the password and the app locked me out. Now I have a Spanish course for a year that I can’t get access to. I totally regret downloading and paying for this.
