Speak a new language.

Great but not perfect

I decided to try out it Japanese course, (as I love anime and their pop music). It was fun to learn it (though I’m just a beginning) but I noticed a few issues. One of which is that the translation button doesn’t work on these to cards (the tall card and the student card, and there may also be more), I also don’t like that you can't use the translation button in the second stage of the dialogue test, but can do it on the first stage. However, I do like the translation button on the vocabulary cards so I can write it down on paper and know how to pronounce it. Also I really hate that you shove the premier membership in my face, every time I open the app, I just want to learn it to for free like you say.

I would also suggest the ability to swap courses if the consumer doesn’t like it. Also as you don’t offer a Korean or a Vietnamese course, you should know that it say that you offer those courses in the information tab, at the bottom which would mislead people into thinking you offer it when you don’t.

Hi there,

Thanks a lot for your feedback regarding our Japanese course- I have logged your comments for our Education team

I am afraid that at the moment we only offer Korean and Vietnamese as interface languages and not course languages- we do apologise for this confusion

Best wishes,


Nowhere near as good as DUOLINGO.

I thought I'd try this app as a different way to analyse my German skills. I have found that this app does not give you enough teaching to be able to be called a course. You are given an array of three to four words to learn and only ever use one in a sentence. And you have to pay for a membership to be able to take any tests. It also doesn't offer a translation of the phrases that you encounter. If you are looking to learn a language, I would recommend DUOLINGO instead, as it is not only a completely free app, but you are actually taught more of the language, translation for all phrases, and have different exercises to test your language knowledge. I will be uninstalling this app and not recommending it, it's practically useless in comparison to DUOLINGO. The only good thing about this app is the ability to pass phrasings onto other members, but even then when I posted a correction on a post I was harassed by a Chinese man chatting me up! Busuu needs to monitor this. I'd recommend to AVOID this app.
