Good teaching method, horrible app design

2
The way the app teaches works fairly well however there are several problems that have caused me a lot of frustration. The app has its own keyboard that doesn’t respond as well as my phones normal one and special characters are more difficult to type. The option to use my phones normal digital keyboard would be nice. All answers you submit are either wrong or right, a small spelling error and it counts it wrong. Which with the weird keyboard happens a lot. I would also like to see a optional button when you get a wrong answer that explains the correct answer. Couple this with some of the question types aren’t explained at all and I have to either get a wrong answer or have to figure out what the app want me to do (or both). The app is also slow between questions, it almost feels like it has a built in timer for the next portion. This might be because my phone is older but the app should be complex enough to slow it down that much. I prefer a bit faster experience as it keeps my mind more active. Lastly I would like to see the pages of the grammar rules written down without having to do exercises. I don’t really want to do an entire lesson to see them again. Overall I feel that the app will teach me a language but it just keeps frustrating me. It’s not so much the method of teaching the language but the app‘s Interface itself that is holding it back and I feel like I won’t stick with it for long and try to find another way to learn.

Want to review more on mobile app!!

Overall I think it’s great and I love my 15-20 min a day on Babbel. However, I really wish that they made the phone app review more like the browser version. The app only lets you practice a certain number of items per day with flash cards/fill in the blank etc., and you don’t get to choose the level or category of review (ie newer vs older material, topics, etc). This is available on the browser version and I’d really like it to be added to the iOS version as well!! Also, Swedish podcast please!!!! :) :)
By more reviews!

Should not have to pay for more lessons

This app helped me learn 3 sentences and that was good for me I liked it! But I didn’t like that I had to pay for more lessons. But nothing is free in life. Kinda a rip-off.😕

The best language app there is

I absolutely love Babbel. It works better for me than Duolingo because it balances out the intuitive learning with bite sized grammar explanations and exercises that you don’t really get in a structured way on duolingo. The lessons are just the right size to be challenging but not overwhelming, the dialogues are interesting- never condescending like some language courses that make you feel infantilized- and the reviews very helpful. I am now speaking German at an intermediate level and plan to keep using Babbel to learn more languages after I’m fluent.

Impressed!

I have tried in the past to learn another language and this app is incredible. Not only do they have you listen, speak, read and write (LSRW) but you get immediate feedback on your progress and you move on. Using LSRW all at once you are really learning the language. I’m a literacy specialist and ELL teacher and this is using the best practices in language acquisition! I highly recommend Babble!

Not that great

I’m not happy because the program doesn’t allow you to repeat the lesson after you completed it.

Who knew you could learn a new language vs scroll on social media for hours😃I’m loving this app! Super fun and interactive!! I highly recommend!

So So

Nothing compares to one-one. It takes practicing the language with another person to make sure it sticks. The trick is finding someone who knows German and is willing to work with you. Practicing bad ways just gets a person good at speaking a language in those ways, so make sure to practice speaking German or whatever language you’re learning correctly.

Funky interactive webpages

This app doesn’t respond well. It’s slow to the touch and is not very intuitive. I had a hard time putting a space between typed words and then I noticed a blank box that turned out to be the space bar. A tutorial would have helped in the beginning.

Great app

I love this app but it is mostly business and not every day words or conversations I think that there should be a category to choose from.
