Excellent learning tool!

As a former educator, I have to give Babbel a big thumbs up. Learning a language is easy, enjoyable and so effective. Thank you.

Works ok until I finish a course and then it doesn’t progress to the next level

Good language learning app

Overall, I am pleased with Babbel. As an aspiring polyglot, I would like to see more languages, such as Japanese, added to the app. I would also like to be able to switch languages more easily; the process to change language requires going into settings and is cumbersome.

Latin American Spanish Offerings Limited

The Latin American Spanish course only offers very beginner-level instruction. They don’t make this clear in the app so it appeared to not be working correctly. I had to reach out to customer support multiple times before someone told me I would need to take the European Spanish course if I wanted to start at a higher difficulty level. The app seems ok now that I’m using a fully built out course. I don’t understand why they would offer incomplete courses. It was really frustrating and left a really bad impression. Updated note for the developer who keeps responding to this: I did contact your support people. They were the ones who told me to switch to European Spanish because the Latin American version only had beginner courses. And it solved the problem. I suggest you chat with them to learn more.

Would be a great app if it werent for..

I’m a regular guy just trying to learn Portuguese so I can talk to a hot Brasileña whenever the opportunity presents itself. This app would be a great app worth paying for if it weren’t for the fact that they’re throwing all this lgbtq propaganda in your face starting from lesson one. Things like trying to teach me words while saying they apply if you “Identify as a man” “identify as a woman” and then mention “gender-neutral terms”? The terminology is obvious and the ideology is off putting and not something I want in the middle of my LANGUAGE lessons. I was actually liking the first couple of seconds of the lesson and was considering subscribing for a year until that started popping up. No thanks. I want to learn from a normal company. I will take my hard earned money elsewhere. Keep your narcissistic ideology out of peoples lives.

Bad examples

I’m taking the Spanish course. They have an “American” speaking with the worst accent. It doesn’t help learning how we’re actually supposed to pronounce things. Please lose Peter, Babel.

Babbel is both educational & has several ways to learn. It also gives explanations to help guide guide you through your lessons. You can also review as many times you feel you need. If I can understand & learn a new language at my age you can too. It’s good for your brain & also use in everyday life.

The new rules

The new

I signed up on my phone and bought a one year plan.

My mistake was opening my iPad and using my email and Apple ID to sign in to Babbel and realizing there’s no subscription on the iPad. Now my iPad will not recognize me as the same person on my iPhone no matter what I do. And there’s no help in the app. I have messaged a bot who has not helped.

Not very useful for travel

I was frustrated that I was not learning what I needed to know for traveling in Türkiye, but learning useless phrases and words instead. The company provides several options to select what is your reason for learning such as ‘wanting to become fluent’ to ‘travel’. It seemed pointless to select learning for “travel” when the lessons were not geared toward that. I did 14 lessons a week for about 6-7 weeks, and learned next to nothing useful beyond a few pleasantries. It was also frustrating that I could not go back later and review a lesson. I feel I spent a lot of time, effort and money to learn very little.
