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.

  • Cost

    By key_ahna
    You only get 1 free lesson and then you have to pay for the rest! That’s crap. I like memorize and duolingo for languages. I am also trying to learn Japanese not just Spanish but they don’t have Japanese! Unlike Memorize and Duolingo.
  • Mixed Spanish

    By Indysig
    I wanted to learn Mexican Spanish and not Castilian Spanish. I am a true beginner but I do know a few words. This course infers that you know a bit more than just the basics and it mixes between the two types of Spanish. In short, i don’t like it and just wasted $40 bucks.
  • Other new languages

    By Kin9 0f P1an7s
    I hoping, it’s free to learn language learn so I’ll to read more often and I see this to have more languages worldwide so I’ll able to be learning how to talk Japanese people who can’t speak English, since my dad and stepmom sometimes rarely bother to meet up some Japanese cute girls
  • BUYER BEWARE - subscriptions

    By Caveat Emptor - US
    This is not a review of the product but more the company. I purchased a 6-month subscription upfront (SPOILER: bad move) for Spanish through Apple Store and 1 month in decided to switch to German under the impression that Babbel is a language learning software subscription not a purchase of access to a specific language. In short - it is impossible to change in the app or online and customer support’s response was that they couldn’t help me and to “purchase a new subscription”. Extremely disappointing. They didn’t even attempt to keep me as a customer. Eventually bad customer service will catch up to Lesson Nine GmbH.
  • Faster and easier than expected

    By Equestrionaire
    I've tried language programs since they came with a 33 1/3rd rpm record and a book. But nothing has come even close to the system with this app. I am thrilled.
  • I like it

    By musicluva84
    I took Spanish for 10 years in school. I’m quite proficient with reading but wanted to be more conversational. I wish the app allowed you to select Latin American Spanish vs. Spain. Also, the speech recognition is a little weird. When I am saying a word correctly it consistently says it’s wrong. It’s not me it’s the app :). Other than that, it’s a good app to brush up on the language when you don’t have the luxury of immersion.
  • Great App

    Reinforces and builds upon basics -I am finally grasping the nuances of the Cyrillic alphabet.
  • Skipping around the lessons

    By Abandon09
    So far I’m giving it 4 stars... I’ve only had the app for a week though and may change my rating later. I have learned some Polish phrases but have skipped around a little in the lessons because I wanted to learn phrases quicker. That being said, I have a hard time with the pronunciation but I’m sure it’s because of the skipping around. Also, it’s really hard when it comes time to write in the phrases instead of merely unscrambling a word or two. At the point where you write the entire phrase from memory it was “learned” about 5 minutes prior. I’ll probably end up repeating a few lessons. Overall it is helping me learn but not a 5 star app yet... we will see in a few months.
  • Open & immediately closes

    By BnP 1596
    If you finish the first part of a lesson and close the app, when to open the app & click 5he continue button the app opens the lesson & immediately closes the lesson. You have to go start the lesson completely over. Terrible app.
  • Boring. There are better apps

    By Phishdance
    You will get bored easily. I find it to be too slow. You click the answer then have to wait a few seconds for the next button to pop up.
