Babbel – Learn Languages App 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.

App Reviews

  • Good but could be better

    By Miller325
    I paid for this app to help hold me accountable, but I have used some free apps, I feel are better. As someone who does not speak Spanish, I find it is more discouraging when I misspell/mistype a word that it is wrong. Other apps will indicate it is wrong, but provide encouraging comments saying “close” or “near perfect”. Also, when I am doing the listen and reply section, the voice at times does not come across as clear, My suggestion, if I have had to replay the voice prompt more than 3 times, add the text in English below. I know an app can’t be all things for all people, but I enjoy it more if it gamified vs school like. What about an app that will naturally converse with me vs a canned conversation I may never use. Mucho dinero seguro!
  • Fabulous App

    By Celticthinker
    I’ve gone on immersion trips to Mexico and Spain to learn Spanish. But I’ve started dating a woman whose first language is Spanish, so I got this app to bone up. I’m glad I did. The app is fun to use. The lessons are quick and the method they use of listening, repeating, writing, picking from lists, and providing detailed pop ups to explain quirky aspects in the language are right for me. I enjoy using it. I haven’t tried any other language programs so I can’t compare it with others, but it was my first app experience for language learning and I am more than happy with it.
  • Pretty good

    By Gordo419
    It works as it’s a repetitive process. Like any other learning experience, you’ll get more out of it if you apply yourself.
  • Great app! But...

    By Kallista🇵🇭🇰🇷🇯🇵🇨🇳
    I love this app and I think it’s very good for helping learn new languages but I think you should add a bit of more languages like, Chinese, Japanese, Korean (Hangul), or even Tagalog, I need to learn Tagalog since I did grow up in the Philippines. Thanks! 🤷‍♀️💜
  • Have To Pay

    By honest_truth213
    Very nice app, taught me 6 words that I retained, but after SIX WORDS wanted me to pay and subscribe? I thought the app was free, it’s not.
  • Better structure than Duolingo - small small text

    By thillslc
    It seems obvious they need to increase the font size on the native settings. Why don’t they address the obvious problem. I can barely see the text in the all in a iPhone X. Ugh
  • Updated Review. - Working now, but had some issues

    By Cecef
    Updating this review... First .. i purchased a year of Spanish and it never loaded on to my app, despite the fact that they charged my credit card via PayPal. Then.. after putting my password in, it said it was the wrong password which it was not, but I reset the password and the app locked me out. - 1 month later I finally got it to work somehow! - THEN... now the app Suddenly doesn’t work at all. It won’t even load. I’m just getting some error message. I can’t even figure out how to cancel so they don’t charge me again. It’s a mess.
  • Good but needs improvement

    By JayBetancourt
    It has great material and I like the way it explains the rules about to be learned. Duolingo does not do that. I do not like the microphone feature when one has to repeat a word. It is not intuitive and the user can not tell if to repeat right after the example voice is done or need to push the mic button. Needs some bug fixing. Can’t wait to see more improvements.
  • Wrong languages

    By Zoe-Review
    I was learning Spanish and it started teaching me words of another language and not using the correct words.
  • Eh..

    By Smol Kitten 😺
    This app is okay, but the reason I don’t want to ever see this again is because you need to PAY to learn things on this app. This is how I heard of this app. So, I was in a car with my dad, and I was thinking of a good way to learn Spanish. I didn’t even think of using my phone. (I had a language-learning app before, but I forgot about it after I reset my phone.) Then, I heard about Babbel. It advertised that it worked really good and someone said they thought they were bad at language but Babbel proved them wrong (not exact quote). I though that I should download Babbel because you could learn Spanish. I was happy it was free, but they only let you try it. You needed to pay money to actually use the app! That’s why it was free. Honestly, I would prefer a different app. 👎🏽👎🏽😾😾😾
