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.

Ratings and Reviews
It’s okay, but don’t expect to learn it proficient
I already know Spanish but I wanted to see if this app was really all the hype I read in an article. Mainly for friends of mine that would want to learn Spanish. The app lets you choose between beginners and Advance. The Advance was way too easy. It felt more like it was the beginners but it wasn’t. Perhaps it gets more advance as you progress through the lessons. I personally was not going to pay that for an app that was going to teach me simple words of “si, chao, usted, ella y el” I think that even for those that are not proficient, my white friend would know what those words mean. If you want to learn a language. You have to immerse yourself in hearing it. Watch shows or movies in Spanish. You’ll be able to hear the dielectric as they speak it and over time you’ll be able to pick up a few words here and there. My sister first boyfriend he was around my family and hearing us speak to much that he began to understand what we were saying. To the point where he responded back to my mom in English. He pick up on what she ask him in Spanish. He didn’t know Spanish before he met us. This app that tells you to say one word here and there will not teach you the whole context. Best way to learn is spend time with a Hispanic family where there primary language at home is Spanish. It’s okay for beginners if your knowledge is nothing but to speak it proficient with other native speakers. Sorry, but this app won’t give you that.
I’m sorry what
So, I know passable french, but I wanted to improve more. I thought to myself “oh every ad is pretty much Babbel and I have nothing to lose” so I downloaded the app. I was so excited to learn more french. I opened the app, filled out the beginning question and was presented with a challenge “beginner or advanced”. Now, I know I went to france and did a decent job of understanding and speaking so how hard could it be? Well, I chose advanced. The first question- my mind finds the answer to “what time is it” a phrase I leaned 4 years ago. Perhaps it’s just getting a feel for where I am... I click the right answer. It repeats the phrase in french. This is it, I think, I’m finally going to get another question and go back to learning! So I wait for it to load... and I wait... and I wait some more. Maybe it froze? I closed the app and opened it back up. I went back through the same survey thing and finally back to the question. I have this one under control now. I click the right answer. It doesn’t repeat the phrase. Okay, weird. I go to my home screen, open another app, and come back. I try the question again. It took half an hour and I’m on good wifi and service this is an issue with the app I couldn’t do anything why the hell did I think it would work? Everyone else said you get 6 free words but hey at least you got words all I got was a haunting reminder of the passage of time

Coming from Pimsluer Russian
I studied Pimsluer Russian but the duration of time it took along with the lack of writing and visuals made it easy to speak but difficult to ensure I was saying the right thing, either pronunciation or the right version of the word within the sentence, such as “a” and “и.” I did make it through Stage 1 (of 3) with them and it made the beginning of this app very simple as I knew a good amount right off the bat, but this app ties in visual, auditory, muscle and speach in a way that’s much quicker and easier to understand what you are saying. I also found it really helpful the way they group the language together, and how they explain how and why certain parts of the language are the way they are. These concepts are essential to understanding the language but I was completely missing out with Pimsluer. It’s fast, fun and can be done in my free time. If I take a week off I can be confident to pick it all back up again rather than be faced with the choice to listen to a 45 minute seminar that I’ve already heard or go to the next one and not remember everything from last week.
Try the app out! It’s fun and refreshing!
