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.

    I like the Ap, but I wish it administered a test first to know where to start, instead of making everyone start from the beginning. Each lesson should allow the user to test out. There are some occasional errors; like counting your answer incorrect but giving your answer as the correct answer; or asking for a word they haven’t gone over yet. As the lessons progress, there are more instances where they ask questions about materials they haven’t given out yet. So far, I’ve encountered 2 times where an instruction was given. Then, a question was asked about that information. They count the correct answer (according to the instructions) wrong. I wish there was an easier way to go back and forth within a lesson. You have to close the lesson, reopen, and select not to resume in order to go back one page. And then it starts the entire lesson over. You never know when the speaker is going to be using Latin America Spanish or Castilliano. Native speakers use one or the other, but don’t tell you beforehand which. This course is a “memorize dialogue” course; so you have to hope what you’re learning is going to match up with a real conversation. It’s not like Pimsleur that makes you form your own sentences. I do really like the thorough coverage of the plural informal “You” verb conjugations. I’ve taken 3 years of Spanish and a total immersion class in Mexico and all of them neglected to teach those verbs. I like that the words/phrases are captions to pictures. That way you can recall a picture associated with words and you get a better concept of the meanings. I like the pop up explanations. They are very easy to understand instruction. And I like it that the pop ups distinguish between the Spanish dialects ( just wish they’d let you know which dialect the native speakers were using.) And I’m liking the review and getting congratulated for knowing the info. I don’t know how many wrong answers it would take for the Ap to say I wasn’t doing well. In conclusion, I wouldn’t depend on this course alone to make me fluent in Spanish or any other language. If you’re serious about wanting to learn; then, you’ll want to include several different courses, listen to Spanish radio and television, and hang around with native speakers. This Ap is a good start, but get DuoLingo and Pimsleur, too.
  • Sneaky and hard to cancel

    The content is fine, but there is no support for updating or canceling a subscription from within the app. Yes, there are instructions online that are vague at best, but mostly plain fiction. Do NOT sign up thinking you can try it out and cancel any time. Be ready to have a lifelong monthly charge once you sign up- canceling seems to be a long drawn out process involving calls to customer service. Not as advertised.
  • Awesome 😎

    You have to spell all the words, so it is very defeating.

    I like the content, but the app crashes too often. (I’ve only noticed this after the first 10 or so lessons; I’m using the Spanish lessons.)

    Prior to getting Babbel, I used Duolingo. It’s not much difference between the two other than Babbel being more classroom type oriented. I wish Babbel had the abilities to test you out and make you feel like you are accomplishing something other than the treble chime it gives off when you get something correct. I love the feel of the app and the ability to go back and review without the hassle of digging through pages of history. I do however, feel it can use an update of the user interface of the application. This app has earned my loyal patronage.
