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.

Classroom style learning at home

Christopherbrown0317

Babbel offers first and second semester college level language learning. I am trying to become conversational in Spanish after being married to a native speaker for 11 years and taking several college courses in the language. I would give 5 stars, but there is no way to test out of the beginning lessons and focus on what you need to improve on as there is in an app like Duolingo. I find myself using Duolingo more because it is more fun and brings a game like aspect to learning, but when I want to focus on technical details of the language I turn to babbel. As with any language learning regimen, this app must only be part of your learning plan if you wish to be fluent. You must speak with people in the language and immerse yourself In it by reading and listening to it. I get my news from CNN español now, and I listen to Spanish radio and tv whenever I can. Having a native speaker in the house doesn't hurt either! Overall, I am satisfied with babbel, I just wish it wasn't so similar to the structure I was used to from the classroom, it doesn't feel very useful!

Worth the Purchase

QBsince1933

I’ve loved Babbel ever since I saw how many freakin’ lessons they have! It really does a good job of teaching grammer, vocab and rules, plus some of the differences in Spanish in all the countries that speak it. My favorite feature would have to be simulated conversations. It gets you started listening to Spanish and is a GREAT way to practice the grammar you’ve learned. My only critiques would be that I wish there was a better re-cap at the end of each lesson in the Words and Sentences section, such as a simulated conversation that includes all the words/phrases that were covered. I also wish there was a better way to review past material, like better built in flash cards. I find myself using a separate flashcards app to do this. Also the Spanish it teaches in from Spain, and I wish when they taught vocab they’d include the words used in Latin America too. Still, Babbel is the best language learning app I’ve used so far (I like it way more than Doulingo) and I’d recommend it to anyone.

Very Impressed So Far

MHM117

My husband is from Italy and his parents do not speak any English, so I decided to finally bite the bullet and see how much Italian I could learn. I got the six month subscription as a Christmas present and so far I’m very impressed. The lessons do a great job of not overwhelming me while still teaching me a great deal of information. I am still at a very basic level, but my husband is very impressed with my progress so far. I like how tips pop up throughout the lessons and they mix multiple relevant topics within each lesson. My only critique is that I wish there were more features in the review section other than just flashcards. When I studied Spanish in school I loved having a running list of the verbs we’ve learned and their conjugations. This would be super helpful to look back at. Also including some review games would be beneficial. Overall a great app and something I would recommend to any beginners!
