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. FEATURES • 14 languages to choose from • 10-15 minute, bite-sized lessons that fit conveniently into your schedule • Lessons covering a wide range of useful topics, from travel to business (and more!) • Speech recognition technology to keep your pronunciation on point • Courses at a variety of skill levels, making Babbel ideal for both beginners and more advanced learners • Our robust Review Manager helps you retain new vocabulary • Learning progress that’s synchronized across all your devices, so you can easily pick up right where you left off LANGUAGES Spanish, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Polish, English, Indonesian, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian WORKS FOR YOUR GOALS After just one month, you will be able to speak confidently about practical topics, such as: • Transportation • Shopping • Directions • Making friends and socializing • Dining And much more!

  • Good app

    Great app! Would recommend. I tried multiple different apps to try to learn Russian and this one worked really well! I have to say that the subscription was over priced and only purchased once. Lowering the prices for the one month to like 8 dollars would be great.

    Tried several lessons in different languages and purchased. One is directed to also look at their website for discounts not offered through the App Store. One is given a discount code and directed back to the App Store to purchase. However when doing this one doesn’t get to select the language, the app chose the last language trialed, and discount code was not applied. Immediately canceled the subscription upon realizing the app chose the last language trialed but could not obtain a refund. Contacted Babbel support and was told they have no control over the app on the App Store and they couldn’t change the language nor refund the purchase; but one could buy another package through links provided via email to their website and buy the correct language or multiple languages for a year. So you’re paying twice for something one has already paid for. In response to Babbel asked since they developed the app, how could they not have access to change the language or refund the purchase so one could buy the correct module one intended? Again they said they have no control over the app. How can this be since they developed the app for Apple and android use? In response told Babbel this was a fraudulent practice, they were double dipping and would report for fraudulent activities. Babbel then provided a link to iTunes support and filed a claim for a refund. Babbel not only denied the claim but also charged the account again for the purchase. Had to spend a lot of time on the phone with Apple support to get money refunded, figure out why was charged twice upon filing for cancellation and discussed Babbel’s responses via email. Apple confirmed Babbel developed the app, supports it and therefore has access to refund or change the language. Apple refunded both the purchases, the second without authorization. Very disappointing and not a reputable company after this experience. Although it seemed like a good app there is no reason to give a dishonest company money again. There are other apps out there to use.
  • Garbage, false advertising.

    When I saw that I could learn French, my favorite language, I got the app immediately. The thing is, I’m a kid. My parents disabled my phone so that I can’t use in app purchases. The reason I bought this app was because the advertisement said learn languages for FREE! This is not free. Sure, it can teach you stuff, but I’m not paying 72.99 for a year’s worth of French that I can learn from my aunt.
  • Horrible DO NOT BUY

    I hate leaving a bad rating but the app keeps crashing when I try to access the specific lessons I need! So frustrating! It is also locking lessons and saying I need to subscribe (which I have already done) to access them. 😭
  • Nope

    You get one lesson for free. After that, pay up. I didn't know this until I signed up, it's buried down on the bottom of the page, after all the glowing phrases. Needless to say, I deleted it.
  • Is good, but shouldn’t be advertised as free.

    Was really excited to learn french. Im from Louisiana and have a creole(i know its not the same language) background so I thought it might be cool to learn. Advertised for free online, but i get through the first lesson and have to pay. Was not impressed with that. Other than that, i think it will help a lot of people learn different languages. Just don’t advertise things for free that aren’t free.
  • Disappointed

    It does not work for me! The fact that I am unable to go back to rework through the assignments does not help me at all. How can I learn if I’m unable to take the time I need to get it right?!!
  • The app doesn’t work with my subscription.

    I love the app on my laptop but it’s not recognizing my purchase on my phone app so I can only use the application on my lap top.
  • No too hard.

    This app is not good. It is more interested in spelling than hearing.
