Incredible!

I just starting learning Italian last week & already love the layout of the app- very impressed and excited to continue my journey to fluency!

Almost Happy

I want to learn to speak some French, but this app focuses too much on spelling and writing. It expects you to be able to spell French words correctly after having only seen them once or twice. Some lessons have more productive approaches, but the spelling ones are defeating for someone who doesn’t remember words so easily and quickly.

Stuck in beginner with ZERO help from customer support

1
I tested into pre-intermediate, which is the correct section for me, but am stuck in beginner where the courses are too basic to be useful. I can’t find anywhere how to change it! The way you’re supposed to according to their website is not showing up in my app. Should be a quick fix from customer support, but NO, they haven’t gotten back to me at all despite multiple inquiries. It’s shameful to be this indifferent towards helping paying customers. I might have to just refund the year I paid for and use a different app because this is awful. This is a shame because the courses themselves are actually great WHEN AT THE RIGHT LEVEL

Takes my money

I have tried to cancel my subscription for so long now. It shouldn’t be this difficult to do but it is and that’s unnecessary. I want my money back

Buyer Beware

***Update*** Babbel customer service was very helpful and redoing issue. I was refunded my annual fee and chose the lifetime option, so no more surprises. Just make sure you manage your subscription on the Babbel website, it doesn’t show up in the App Store like other recurring subscriptions. However, aside from that, my issue was corrected very quickly and the app is good. Sometimes the voice recognition is spotty. You can playback what you say and it’s correct, but you can sit there for 20 minutes and it rejects it. Then the same word will come up a few minutes later and it accepts your pronunciation no problem. I like to work with multiple apps so I can become fluent asap. ———————————————————- The app itself is ok. Every once in a while I have to reinstall it. However, I go into my subscriptions on my iPhone on a regular basis to see what is coming up for renewal etc. Even though I purchased Babbel through the App Store, it was not in my subscription list. Then out of nowhere a charge goes through without any notice and at that time I didn’t even know there was also a website. Nothing was showing in the app. I use a clearing account for things like this that only has a balance for the anticipated clearing items, so this overdrew my account. I can’t seem to get any help through customer service. I like the app well enough to buy the lifetime which was LESS than annual with the sale. Plus, I don’t want sneaky auto drafts going forward. So I’ve paid $450 so far this month. My hope is that someone gets back to me and refunds one of the purchases.

I found this app hard to keep up with. I found a free app that is proving to be much more effective for me. It is more repetitive and isn’t moving as fast but I am learning and retaining more. Unfortunately there was no trial period for this app so I’m stuck still paying for it even though I’m not using it.

I’ve spent over a half hour trying to unsubscribe!

I didn’t enjoy this approach though it might work for some. That said, they make it impossible to quit. So make sure you want to use this for the rest of your life before joining!

Very convenient

Love this app in my spare times to learn a foreign language.
By ReniM22

iPhone app needs improvement

2
Mostly good, few things significant to me - sometimes after getting something right, the lesson moves on and doesn’t let you look at what you just answered - you can’t click on phrases that have already been said to have them repeated (in some cases) - no option to go back and re attempt the things that you got wrong

Beginner Italian

I do enjoy the lessons but am a bit confused on (liu lei Lei). Not certain that this is correct. Would like to take the first lesson over tomorrow.
