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.

Well worth it!

**First important point: purchase your subscription through the Babble website - its quite a bit cheaper than buying through the App Store!**

I had a 180 day streak on Duolingo when I decided to take the next step and use a paid service to further my learning and after looking into both Babble and Rosetta Stone I decided Babble was more suited to my learning style. What Babble does differently (to Duolingo, I can’t really comment on comparisons to RS) is it teaches you proper grammar, with very useful pointers contained in each lesson teaching you how to use the words you’re learning. You also get the benefit of natural sounding speech and a vocabulary review section so you can always look back at what you’ve already studied at any time.
I’m two weeks into Babble German (casual learning, 2 lessons a day) and I have already noticed a marked improvement in my German comprehension skill.
I still love Duolingo and am still maintaining my (now near 200 day) streak but Babble is definitely the next step once you decide that you’re enjoying learning a new language.

Beginner improving!

Well, we have actually moved to Spain from U.K. and my Spanish is very basic (or worse). So, I need to learn some basic Spanish at my own pace and when I have a slack 15 minutes. This is what Babbel gives me. The 15 minute lesson is just the right length. I like the way Babbel repeats the lesson in a different format (e.g. tap the pairs) and then reviews the same things again. This is my only hope to remember what I have just 'learned'. The big plus over Duolingo Spanish is that there are formal grammar reviews (e.g. Tenses of the verb 'Ser') as well as the pictorial lessons. I can't learn any other way. Another plus over Duolingo which I have tried to like as it is free; there are no silly phrases or time wasting vocabulary; how useful is 'where is my elephant'!
It's £20 for 3 months: I'm ok with that as it is well structured.
However, one dislike; Apple Apps states it comes with family sharing. This is NOT true. (Apple problem I think!). BUT I would like to be offered a multiuser discount!

💙💙💙AMAZING + a suggestion :))

So I absolutely love this app and although you have to pay it’s definitely worth it (and as I paid for it I feel more motivated so I’m not wasting my money). I love the way that lessons are structured and how they slowly build up in difficulty and allow you to repeat words until they really sink in.
The only thing I can think of to improve the app would be if I could easily find the ‘explanations’, as in all the little tips as well as when it explains why certain words are used at certain times (like how sometimes you fill in a word to say this is used before/after and adjective etc.), or how sentences are structured etc., so that I can look over them again when I am unsure without having to go through the whole lesson again to find it!
Overall very happy and I definitely feel I am learning and understanding the languages I am learning better! :)
