It’s much better than I expected and very interactive
I was excited to download it but once I open the app I didn’t see Japanese
You have to do something...it’s a good way to spend time rather than watching TV
I had heard Babbel was a good way to learn a language but I’m finding it endlessly frustrating, as it asks you to spell words almost immediately. Why is there no way to adjust features? This isn’t how I learn words in a new language. I need much repetition, and it serves no purpose in the beginning to be pressed to spell something weird correctly. Who cares? I’m getting so frustrated with it that it’s counterproductive. Also I keep being told my pronunciation is incorrect with very easy words, that I’ve pronounced precisely how I’m hearing them - over and over and over again the same word. A bug. And you pay for one language and have access to zero others. Quitting even though I have paid for three months. Use Duolingo for free until the ads drive you crazy (and then subscribe) before this. Or Rosetta Stone where you can purchase lifetime access to all languages. Both repeat things a lot so you really become familiar with new words and concepts
So far so good. It’s nice to be able to jump on and off when I have spare time.
After a hiccup with the payment process, actually using the app is very engaging. The lessons involve listening, spelling, key words, situational examples, conjugation and speaking. I only wish there were more opportunities to engage in a dialogue since I don’t have a partner to practice with. Otherwise it’s been fun. The lessons are just long enough and I go through each “chapter” twice to make sure I’m confident before I move on. I also wish there were more practice tools like flash cards or at least keeping the flash cards accessible after the first pass. At least on my app, I get one pass through and then that’s it. I may make my own to supplement. Otherwise, es ist sehr gut.
I really wish I could learn Japanese but they don’t have it seems like a good app tho
I enjoyed learning Italian a few months ago and dropped the effort when my travel was cancelled. I’ve come back to in now and have found a lot of changes in the program that make the learning process more fun and encouraging.
This is Great!!!!!
Recorded native speakers, no computer voice! That’s probably my favorite part. I also love being able to hear all the vocabulary I’ve learned read aloud. Great variety of ways to review. You have access to all the lessons so you can start at your level.
