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.

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.

  • There are better-designed learning alternatives out there

    By Dubficianado
    I used Babbel unpaid for a while, after which I decided to splurge for the paid version, all in an effort to learn Portuguese. I have since discovered after letting my paid subscription expire that there are better paid alternatives out there. Heck, I'd go as far as to claim that the free version of Duolingo is better for learning than the paid version of Babbel. Babbel's price tag is simply indefensible. My main gripe with Babbel is the incredibly annoying auto-advance feature that prevent the learner from listening to a sentence featured at the end of an exercise as many times as they need to. Too often I found myself asking: "Wait.... What did he/she just say?” and then realized that there was no way of hearing that particular sentence in that particular part of the exercise without redoing the entire exercise again, which was irksome, to say the least. Secondly, some of the voice actors they use are just awful and just a pain to listen to. One guy in particular comes to mind..... he always sounded drunk and half asleep...... with his mouth full of food. It was like listening to a Portuguese Droopy. All in all, Babbel is a decent concept. Having paid for it once, however, I could never be convinced that I got my money's worth.

  • Can’t cancel!!

    By Tnrchrds2
    There is nowhere to cancel in the app or website. Not good
  • The sync is messed up

    By Sidharathc
    Bought my subscription online and used it on the web but nothing reflects on the iPad app. I’m hoping that sync is a big feature with an app over multiple platforms else how am I supposed to keep progressing while traveling or while on my desk. Not cool
  • Great at first but could use some help

    By CirdanTheShipwright
    This is a great app for getting started with a language. It teaches grammar at a good pace and let’s you pick supplementary lessons on vocab and phrases based on the subject matter which is nice. But, once you’ve been using it for a while, the integrated review section gets VERY cluttered. I might sit down to do some review and have it review the same word within the exact same context two or three times in 20 or 30 items. When that gets stacked sometimes I am only getting useful review out of 20-30% of the prompts. Additionally, the in depth lessons don’t really provide any feedback. It’ll have you say lines and listen to them or write a text and then read an example but it doesn’t point out how you can improve. I know my pronunciation is not excellent, but the speaking practice that they give won’t help me with that. Tl;dr: this app is good for a month’s intensive introduction to get to a lower intermediate level, but then it’s not so effective.
  • Money

    By 𝐵𝑜𝒷
    You have to pay after the very beginning of each language, so you only learn like 4 word.😠😤

Beautiful interface design that made me connect deep level therefore,pushing me to want to learn more at any given time, anywhere.
  • Ok but not free

    By deej808aba
    None of the reviews I read mentioned that, so maybe it saves you a download. Definitely prefer Duolingo, hope this doesn’t get deleted lol
  • Not enough languages

    By riska j
    I want to learn Japanese but it wasn’t a option. If they add more languages then it would be a good app
  • French lessons

    By Florenug
    It would really help if the audio phrases or sentences has a slowed down version so I can hear the pronunciation or none thereof, of each syllable. I realize the French speaker will not do that for me, but for the beginners courses that would really help. They do it at Duolingo and that’s very helpful. Too bad I already bought into Babbel.
