Great app 4/5
By Juan Ferret
Doesn't make many differences between Portuguese from Portugal and Brazil
Great learning app! 5/5
Great for learning to read and write French.
To expensive! 1/5
By J's Cookie Monster
I downloaded this app to compare it to DuoLingo, another language app that is FREE!!!! I wanted to see which was better and by a landslide it is Duolingo, Duo sets goals, allows you to connect with others and you can do live chat to practice...it uses all the same techniques and then some and in my opinion a better format. All for FREE and they have so many languages, with no need to download lessons, again all FREE!!! Can I say FREE any more times!?!?!
Great for language learning! 4/5
By Sean Jay SD
This app is great in this day and age of global business. I' m learning Portuguese at the moment, and as our company expands operations to other countries, I can see myself using the app to learn some basic German, French, Italian. 20 years ago I learned Spanish from CD's, and had to carve out time every evening. These days after dinner is precious time spent with children. Now I use this app throughout the day during my free time, instead of playing games on my phone. Conversational skills in a foreign language go a long way toward breaking the ice, and this app delivers! One minor improvement I am requesting from the developers is the option to prompt the user to download the next 2 or 3 lessons whenever the user has WiFi connectivity.
Great Italian app 5/5
By Sunny's prayer
I'm taking private beginning Italian and this app is a great way to review my language skills
orally and in writing - very nice!
A great place to start 5/5
This app has been a great jump off point for me to learn Spanish. I can't wait to start talking to others and eventually travel through Spain.
Great tool for learning Italian 4/5
Great tool to learn Italian
Very good internet language course 4/5
My courses are for Spanish so my review is for that alone. I am more advanced than a beginner, however I started at the beginning so I could recommend this course to friends. This is European Spanish with keys to Latin America so there is a verb tense that I don't use and found that I made mistakes when this tense was called for. Only a couple of mistakes are made in the first couple of lessons but these were minor and I'm sure they will be corrected. The best part of the course for me was the spoken language, all the speakers are excellent and very clear in spoken language.
Great way to study 5/5
I really like how easy it is to use. The review sessions are great and other tools. It has been super helpful to have a tool to help me spend about 10 min a day practicing my german. I have intermediate german skill from living there for a few years and I've really enjoyed this program and app. You can use it online or mobile. Super handy for someone who is really busy all the time like me. If you don't feel you have 10 min a day to spend on this...don't get it, but honestly if you really want to learn a language you need at least 10 min a day in my view.
It's an app that will get you familiar with the new language
By Mr. TomTampa
The Babbel Spanish app is very good . However , occasionally, the voice recognition portion doesn't recognize correct pronunciation.
The best language learning app by far 5/5
This app is probably the most thorough and effective language learning app by far. I used this for my French lessons. You can choose to use the free subscription or choose one of the available options. I think it is well worth it.
Learning a lot! 5/5
Make sure that you practice and review every single day if
you really wanna learn. If you are not determined nothing is really going to happen. The app can't work its magic if you are not giving it the chance to.
Great app! 5/5
By Hillary is evil
It's extremely affective, would definitely recommend!
Fun and affordable 5/5
Babble is extremely affordable and this app is a simple and easy way to work on conversation language learning.
Love this app. Very useful
I hate it 1/5
By sonoma terry
It doesn't recognize my voice so I end up yelling the phrase at it seven or eight times till it gets it, it doesn't give enough space to write my answer therefore grading it wrong, when a sentence has no male or female suggestion & I chose one or the other it says I'm wrong regardless. I hate it!
Love it! 5/5
By Big Rumbalo Jenkins
Makes learning Italian fun and easy. App works well. More productive than playing games on your phone!
Best Teaching Tool!! 5/5
Hands down the best language learning app I've ever used! Completely worth the subscription price!!!
Great app and lots of fun! 5/5
This is a great system to learn a new language, or a few. So many options and it's so fun!
Dang it! 2/5
They have no Korean lessons
I have a friend in Brazil 2/5
By Lilly cool
I have a friend in Brazil and i was hoping to learn Portuguese to make it easier for him to chat on the phone with me. Very disappointed when i finished the first lesson and was informed i had to pay to learn more.
It's really useful for picking up vocabulary! 5/5
It's really useful for picking up vocabulary!
Great program 5/5
I have rated this program three times including this one. I have done this because as I learn I have found that this is an excellent program, but like all learning, it is frustrating. The first time, I loved it with a five, the second time, I hated it with a two, and now it's a five again.
There are times when I think I don't understand why something is the way it is, and as I repeat the program set, I figure it out.
It takes time, and frustration. But it's learning.
Joke of an app don't spend money on it 1/5
What a joke. Every time I start it it makes me read the introduction. The stupid app cannot be silenced. Dumb noises constantly. Can't use it at work during my downtime. I also use Duolingo and at least that lets me silence the app or its very minimal about sounds and noise. To top that off its free. I don't mind paying to learn a language. But seriously this is poor value. Unusable.
By Monagram Bob Gaming
This was really impressive! There is just one thing I would and that would teaching like children conversations (Im 11). Other than that love it!
Don't listen to the Duolingo Shills 5/5
This app has been great so far. The activities are varied unlike some other language learning apps, and they go into grammar and sentence structure as well as practical conversations. Definitely going to stick with this one for awhile.
Very thorough 4/5
I'm using this to supplement my French classes and I am way ahead of my class! :) I like the variety of lessons and the level of challenge, however I agree with the others that the voice recognition could be improved. But hey, technology will always have it's pros and cons. Overall very satisfied during my first 3-month trial.
Great way to start the day 4/5
Easy, and just the right length of time. I log in every morning and do 30 minutes. It's inexpensive and courses are pretty good. Could be better planned -- sometimes the instruction seems convoluted, but I am learning, and it's easy and portable. Wish they had an audio only version for the car.
NO JAPANESE!' 1/5
By HATE ITTTTT😡😡
THIS APP ONLY HAS AT MAX 10 LANGUGES!!!
It's A No For Me 1/5
First off the subscription is outrageous, you might as well take a trip to the country of the language you want to speak and just learn it from the native speakers. Second the app is basically Duolingo slapped on with a high price and and beautified. Honestly the high price is not worth it considering there is an app that does the same thing and is free.
Great App 1/5
Worst App. This app was not helpful in learning a language. Plus it takes 4 pages to read and 3 sites to cancel.
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.
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!
