Good but could be better

I started learning Russian two months ago on Duolingo and absolutely loved it. I was happy to pay the subscription until the developers completely scrapped the model that worked for me and changed it to something that I hate. Despite hundreds of one start reviews, they don’t seem to want to change back anytime so. So I switched to Babbel. There’s a lot to like about this app. I think it does a great job of presenting the grammar in manageable pieces of information. I actually started from the beginning because even the early courses had some vocabulary and information that I didn’t know yet. I really like that they include conversations right from the beginning, including some casual vernacular (of course, well, listen! Etc.). Some of the most useful exercises are listening to a conversation and answering questions about it without seeing the words written down. What I find a little frustrating is that I am now well into the course and we are still not translating or composing full sentences. They will either give chunks of the words to put in order, or have you fill in one words out of a sentence. I leaned the best in Duolingo when I hid all the hints and just did the work on a Russian keyboard. I still hope it gets to that point, but I have already finished several courses and over 100 units and we are not there yet. I don’t feel like I am retaining the info as well as I want to. The other thing is that I wish the review was a little more robust. You do get some review questions every few units, which is good. Also, you can go back and redo any unit you want to. But there are several times I wanted review questions and there weren’t any available. I will definitely complete the course and probably use the membership to brush up in a couple of their languages. I think Babbel with rightly benefit from Duolingo’s mistake, as I know many others have switched as well. I just hope they keep adding new content and more challenging content for advanced learners. Overall, I am frustrated with the lack of more challenging engagement with the content.

Easy way to learn

I’m over 50 and this app not only helps me speak but also helps me learn how to pronounce the words in a sentence with correct punctuation.

A Mistake

1
I wish I wouldn’t have bought Babbel. It’s basically an immersion program. I took two years of German in college and was overwhelmed by the avalanche of new words, Babbel isn’t any different. I tried Duolingo and was way more comfortable with the process and pace. Babbel is like trying to get a sip of water from a fire hose. I regret purchasing it. German is a difficult language to begin with and Babbel doesn’t make it any easier.

Babbel - Português

1
Hard for someone who knows no Português to understand. Lesson instructions are not clear and there is poor response time to typing. Some times you have to push continue 5-7 times to advance. Sorry I signed up for a year.
