You don’t sound like a robot when you speak in your mother tongue (no offence to real robots reading this), so why learn a new language only to talk like one? We want to get you confidently speaking a language like you’ve always wanted, not just memorising a list of vocabulary words or learning sentences you’ll never use.

Give us a go – your first lesson is free!

• 14 languages available: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Polish, English, Indonesian, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian. Probably best you don’t try them all at once.
• Made by humans – expert linguists are behind all of our courses. We keep them warm and well-fed.
• Choose courses on topics you care about, and learn what matters to you.
• 15 minute lessons (on average) – learn without upsetting your calendar (we know how sensitive it can be).
• Progress is synced across all devices, and all content can be downloaded for offline use. So you can learn anytime and anywhere, except in your sleep (we’re still working on that technology).
• Review Manager – helps you keep new vocabulary up there once you’ve learnt it.
• Easy to use – simple and clear interface.
• We’re also available on Apple Watch – another easy way to practice on the go.

Love it!!!

I started using Babbel (French) after my friend recommended it and I just love it! The lessons are the perfect length and I love the way they are set out into 3 parts - introduction, exercises and revision/renforcement. The grammar notes throughout the lessons are also a wonderful way to make things clearer. Personally, I find it easy to learn something if there is a ‘rule’, you know, things like, “ i before e, except after c” (I still recite it when I write the word, ‘receive’) and Babbel’s Little grammar notes during the lesson at the appropriate times are like those little ‘lightbulb moments’ where you just think, “oh, now I get it!”
The images help reinforce what you are learning too and the accents are clear. Wish I’d started it earlier! Thanks for an amazing App, Babbel! :)

Engaging and challenging

Great well made app with a nice degree of challenge to each class. It uses multiple methods to teach you the same thing so you are not simply pressing buttons using muscle memory. I do three classes a day, two in the morning and a revision in the afternoon. I find this is perfect and has just the right amount of new information.

I would like to see the ability to go back a page during a class, as I have accidentally skipped a few helpful tips, or even a summery of tips at the end. I also agree with another review about adding some passive learning tools like podcasts, etc. i think this would add a bit more diversity and help when walking or driving to maintain practice.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks so much for your review and suggestions! Although it's not yet possible to go back a page in the app, this feature is available on a laptop/computer at I have noted your request for this in the app too. We'd also love to expand our learning tools and offer a podcast, so I've also noted your request for this! Please enjoy your studies and make sure you're subscribed to our newsletter, so you'll hear about any new features we add 😊

Grammar + Vocabulary Excellence

I am using Babbel for Russian (from French). I also already speak German, Italian and have studied Latin as well. I found the grammar points to be excellent. The acquisition of vocabulary is effective and realistic. My focus is on correct spelling and I am achieving this easily with Babbel. The parallels during the course with the French language are also very relevant. Right now I am reaching the end of the beginners lessons and will continue to use it until I run out of special lessons or vocabulary lessons. I wish there was an "advanced beginner" module available for Russian but understand that the market probably is not there for it.

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We are always working on new content, so keep an eye on the New section in your Russian course list. :)
