You need to mix reviewing into lessons. It feels like my goal is to get to the next lesson, not learn a language.
This is the worst app ever it has literally been a scam. I have been trying to cancel for ages and have received multiple charges of $44 despite the fact that I cancelled my subscription long ago and have reached out to customer service twice for help. Customer service, if you are reading this, please get back to me. This is absurd and these people are stealing a lot of money from me when I do not use this app.
The structure of the lessons is generally good, but the translations don’t always make sense because of idioms or cultural differences. More explanation (hints) is needed to understand why things are said in a particular way. I’ve also noted some typos that suggest a more thorough QA is needed.
Not great. Doesn’t let me review right away. Doesn’t help me with breaking down pronunciations word for word
I’ve heard great things about Babbel. At least I thought I had, but then I realized after buying a Spanish lesson that all of those positive reviews were from their ads, not from people who had actually used it. I was excited to relearn Spanish after years of not using it, thinking this would be a great refresher. Unfortunately, I am already regretting my purchase. Not only is my lesson extremely basic given I entered intermediate as my level, the voice recognition is so frustrating I’m losing motivation. I was fluent in Spanish years ago so know how to say the basic phrases covered in the first several lessons, but despite my repeated attempts I’m continuously told I’m wrong. Trust me, I know how to say “ellos and ellas” I lived in Peru for a year. Thanks for wasting my time and money, Babbel. Never again.
This app is so addictive
App works ok. Seems thorough. However in case of switching between lower case letters and capitals it doesn’t allow this to be done and then when spelling a word with the limitation of this app marks you incorrect.
Spotty recognition of speech. May recognize a complex phrase but refuse a simple single word like “adios” said several times. Frustrating.
It was amazing I loved it and was easy to learn
The app does not work.
