I have used several different apps for several different languages - both free and paid. Of the paid apps I like Busuu the best for several reasons -The cost is reasonable and fair, it is extremely flexible and respectable to my schedule: in other words, it doesn't penalize me or use negative reinforcement if I need to skip a day here or there. I especially love the fact that there is the ability to have others check my work and I have the ability to help others without having to recruit people from social media. In fact, this is one of my very favorite features: belonging to a language learning community without searching our recruiting My budget is currently tight but I will continue to pay the modest cost for this app. I look forward to more languages for English speakers to become available. My only suggestions for change, and this is only my own personal preference: The languages requiring and Alphabet or syllabary change (for English for other languages using the same writing system) move either a little slower or for some hints?!
Honestly, I'm only using Busuu until Duolingo offers Arabic for English speakers and then I'm ditching Busuu. Why pay when you get high quality language learning for free?
Anyway, the app is terrible. I log into the app and it won't let me pick my courses or any other option in the menu at the bottom. All I can do is click the "be fluent faster" button at the top which I'm assuming is to pay for premium content. I'm assuming this is what happens because the app crashes after I click "be fluent faster." I then restart the app and I'm at another screen where it asks me what other language do I want to learn. All are locked of course and require paid access. But I don't want to learn another language, I want to continue with the language I'm learning on the Busuu site. It's like the app is designed less for a learning experience and more to shake you down for money. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app and I get the same results. Hopefully Duolingo will offer an Arabic course soon!
Best of the language study apps
I enjoy learning with busuu. Recently, I upgraded from free user to paying user. This unlocked many lessons which had been restricted. I believe there is an affiliation with McGraw Hill, which is a recognized publisher in the language field here in the US. One of the features I especially like is the ability to submit written work and have it graded by someone living in the land where the language is spoken. If you have curiosity about this app, try it for free. Then, if you like it, pay the relatively small annual fee and really participate. One feature I have not as yet tried is the ability to converse, on line, with someone who is a native speaker of the language tha you are studying.
