Great app but......

I really love this app and I’ve had it about two years now. It’s very enjoyable to learn things as well. The only thing is I get sooooooo much email that wreck my head! So if there was an option to unsubscribe from the emails it would be great. But the app is really great ..... Keep up the awesome work!!! 😁

Hello, thank you so much for your feedback! We really appreciate it. Could you please get in touch with us with your email address from so we can take your email address off from our mailing list. Thanks a lot


Excellent but you have to pay

I find this app much better than Duolingo with more options, diversity in questions etc. extras such as convo are not free but plenty can be accessed without paying if you prefer.

Developer Response

Thanks a lot for the wonderful feedback! :)


Caveat emptor - buyer beware

I had a bad experience. I just moved to Portugal and wanted to learn Portuguese, but discovered that the Portuguese on offer is Brazilian, not Portuguese. There is little opportunity to speak the language.

They typically offer a discount if you seem reluctant to pay, and they then charge you without warning on renewals. I hadn’t touched the app for months when I suddenly find Busuu had debited my bank account - and they have refused a refund.
