More languages 4/5
I love this app. I learned a lot but could you guys add more languages like arabic that would be great. Thanks guys
I'm learning a lot! 5/5
I love this app! It's the best language learning app I've tried. I'm on the beginner course but I've already learned so much. I thought the subscription was a little expensive at first, but if you use it every day then it's worth every penny.
I can learn very fast 5/5
This program is made specifically so you can learn quickly. I believe it's very effective! I already know so much and I started a week ago.
Not worth your time 1/5
Unless you purchase the app, you can only practice with one lesson a chapter. This app wants $10 a month. Since when have we surpassed the regular $1.99 for an app? I can provide language learners with free apps that do not freeze, have more vocabulary to study, teaches conjugations of verbs, etc.
You can however pay $5 a month but you are locked in for a years subscription.
This app's microphone makes it impossible for it to make out the pronunciation of words you speak.
Add more content, fix the dozen of bugs, and maybe, maybe I'd think about spending $3 a month without a yearly lock.
Could be excellent if allowed to focus on Latin America 3/5
Very in depth app at a reasonable price for learning a new language. The forced learning of both Latin American and Castilian forms of Spanish drag it down two stars. The dual pronunciation and different meanings makes it too difficult to learn. I want to speak Spanish, not be a dual Spanish language expert.
Add A Country 5/5
By Jenna Blaise
You should add Irish! It's a very unique language and my friend is Irish, and I wanna talk to her like normal Irish people and I'm part Irish! So can you soon add Irish, please!
This app is one of the best that I've ever used! I have tried many many different methods including several free apps, in class, and Rosetta Stone. None have helped me learn so rapidly or help me to feel so confident with what I'm saying and I'm only in the first few beginning lessons I can only imagine what it will be like once I get through the entire course. I paid for an entire year and the money spent is well worth it. Thank you so much for creating such an awesome app and method for learning a new language!
Very good App 5/5
So far it is a nice app to learn a new language! I recommended!
Ridicules price 1/5
WAY too much for an app.
Don't like 1/5
This is not totally free. The 2nd lesson you have to pay. Also microphone isn't working perfectly. After I registered my email I consider that this is a waste of time.
Fun and useful app 5/5
This app is easy to use and even a little fun.
Great on the go! 5/5
By Real Reversal of a Dog
It's very user friendly, easy to follow and perfectly organized. I am bilingual and knowing what it takes to learn a second language, Babbel is the perfect all around tool to do it.
What app? 1/5
It crashes as soon as I try to open it. Back to home screen each time
Microphone doesn't work 1/5
Had to delete after 5 minutes because it refused to recognize anything spoken through the microphone.
Wonderful App 5/5
By Yo yo what's up baby?!
I love it so far! Very interactive, not boring at all.
Money money money 1/5
I think this app would be good if u DIDN't HAVE TO PAY MONEY TO LEARN A LESSON!!!!!
I was really excited about learning Spanish because I could never understand what my grandma and grandpa are speaking about, but then I learned a few words in the first lesson and then I went to get access for the next lesson and it was nine dollars for one month!!! I'm not a very fast learner so I was probably going for three months but that was like six dollars a month!!! I do not recommend this app unless you want to pay a lot of money for the whole thing.😡😭👎🏻😢
Great language learner for a cheap price! 5/5
Amazing way to learn a new language! I'm learning Turkish so I can communicate with my family! And now they understand me. I love the prices and the lessons, the pictures make everything a lot more interesting too!
Don't waste your money and time. 1/5
Very disappointed in the app. I keep getting stuck on words cause they don't approve my pronunciation. After a while, it becomes frustrating so I have to look for other alternatives. I Expected the babbel to be better since I've heard a lot of positive things about it... >__<
False advertising 3/5
By John Stamers
The reason I got this app is because they advertised people using it to learn Romanian. Guess what language isn't in this app? ROMANIAN!
Easy and fun 5/5
App is very easy to follow and actually fun to do. You can make progress with your own path, moving between different lessons, reviews and skills. I enjoy it and that's a very important part of learning process.
Worth the money compared to others 5/5
You could pay hundreds for other programs up front that you may not like and never use. This one is by the month, and I prefer it that way.
I am using this app because I'm not good at learning languages. I wanted to use a part of my mind that I am not used to using to strengthen my mind.
This app makes it fun!
It doesn't teach Hindi.... Nor does it teach Japanese. Not worth it.
Babbel is a great app. It has helped me tremendously in learning Spanish. I would recommend it very highly.
They charged me 60$ after I canceled the trial 1/5
It charged me 60$ period.
Does not work 1/5
By PurplePolkadots <3
Microphone does not pick up and I've got Spanish people trying to speak in Spanish
Wast of time and money
Excellent program 4/5
I learned the Portuguese language over 20 years ago, and over those years I have forgotten much of what I learned. I have been looking for A program to help polish my Portuguese language skills. So far I am very pleased with Babel. I only wish they offered the dialect actually used in Portugal as well as the Brazilian dialect.
Great app 5/5
Algo por mejorar 3/5
La aplicación es muy buena solo que está diseñada para El español de España no tanto así para el español de Latinoamérica. También hermoso de inglés viene sólo en inglés británico no te da la opción de elegir entre el británico o en inglés norteamericano que eso significa un problema para las personas que vivimos en Estados Unidos. Por ejemplo (good evening quiere decir buenas tardes en el inglés británico pero en el inglés norteamericano quiere decir buenas noches Al saludar. Mientras que buenas tardes en inglés norteamericano good afternoon.
Great App. 4/5
Simple easy to use. The chapter breakdown and organization of lessons I like the best.
Great app 4/5
Last i checked, not multi device usable without paying on each device. I paid twice to reload on a new ipad.
Very few language choices 3/5
By ---ANEMONES PERSON
I'm trying to find an app to learn Japanese so I can visit my exchange student friend from Japan when she moves back, and she's teaching me a few things, but I can't find anywhere to learn the language. I know it's not spoken many places, but I would like to see an app like this or Duolingo add a Japanese feature. I haven't used it further than the language option
screen, so I don't know much else, sorry.
There should be English language on the language use !!
False advertising 1/5
The advertisement that I saw that got me to go and download and attempt to utilize this app said the app was free, and was able to be used. As I went through lesson 1 of beginners Spanish it was amazing. Easy and helpful, then I went to try lesson 2 and it told me I had to subscribe to the app, and pay some sort of monthly payment. It is ridiculous and pointless unless you have the money to just throw away.
Great app! 5/5
By musician dan
Very helpful app for learning a new language! I'm using it to learn French.
This app is amazing. It goes very in depth and the exercises help incredibly. If you're looking to learn a language. This is the best way to go!
Waste of money 1/5
This app will charge your credit card for renewal without any kind of prior notification. There is no way that I could fine to cancel the subscription. Had to notify my credit card company of a false charge after getting no response from the help center in the app.
Overall it's nice for its price. But the app makes it extremely difficult to review previous lessons because it does not have a skip feature. That means you have to go through the whole lesson all over again. Language learning is all about review. An language learning app that makes it hard for you to review is not a great app.

Babble Fantastic 5/5
I studied Spanish in high school and have used it in conversation a bit since then. I have completed the Babble beginners course and it was presented in a manner that was very easy to use. I look forward to continuing the course.
Challenging but necessary content! 4/5
The transitions between each part can be a hop skip and a jump. I use a combo of Babel and Duolingo for double practice and they compliment each other. I like the set up of babel better though.
It's really a great tool for learning conversational language quickly. It doesn't go too into depth with conjugation so far but I've been working with an old French teacher and she has positive feedback towards the app as well.
No Latin Spanish? 4/5
I think this app is pretty good… I have used Rosetta Stone in the past, and I may like this a little better. (The learning styles are very different, but I am talking about the app interface.)
I am in the US and I am using Babbel to learn Spanish. My one complaint is that Babel seems to offer only European Spanish. There are notes along the way that comment on differences in Latin America, but I wish there was the other option – to learn Spanish for Latin America with European notes.
Not Mexican Spanish... 2/5
By Constant Reader
...so words and pronunciation are different. The voice recognition is annoying. You can't go back and review anything a year or 2 later unless you keep "renting" the app. This should be way better for the price. Rosetta Stone is better if you're using a laptop and Duolingo is free. Sorry.
Interface problems with I-pad 3/5
Many quiz items cannot be done because keyboard pops up and blocks text.
After 1. course it goes to directly payment teachers voice is no good , waste money waste time
Arabic is not an option to learn.
Very good 5/5
This app for the money you pay is worth every penny. You learn a lot. The only thing is that if you know some Spanish may be a week of class or 20 to 30 hours in a class. This this app is golden. They should arrange a way for students to talk to each other to practice.
Almost perfect 3/5
The app is great in that it utilizes a lot of different learning styles to teach you the content. However there are three main areas that could be improved: 1. I requested to learn 'Latin America' Spanish, not 'Spain' Spanish. However, the lessons continue to default to words used in Spain rather than Latin America (e.g., vosotros, billete, etc); 2. The voice recognition feature could be better (it often indicates I've incorrectly pronounced a word when it was clearly correct - unbiased observers agree); 3. There needs to be a review at the end of lessons for the items you did poorly on. Finally, it would be great if the app came with charts to reference all the information you are learning such as grammar and vocabulary. The lessons dive right in without giving you any overview of how sentences are structured or the basics of grammar in the language.
