Major bug please fix 1/5
Can't even go pass the first lesson when you select the good answer there's nothing happening ... No next no continue you're stuck there. POINTLESS
No translations please 2/5
I wish there was a way to turn off the English translations. I don’t want to see them unless I really need them because it forces my brain to translate rather than just think in Spanish.This is the part I’m trying to get out of the habit of doing, so would be nice if you could justHave an option to only see pictures.
Not free 3/5
By ehsan sanaz
I searched for learning turkish app FREE
But it is not😔🦋🦋
Poor way to learn 1/5
I’d like to get a refund...
I’ve found Duolingo to be a better app to start learning a language. Babbel seems to be made for those already familiar with a language but want to become better.
How long do I have to do you/we/they drills? Babbel developers feel no other words are spoken other than you/we/they.
I don’t understand! 2/5
By Catherine hay
Why do you have to pay for other lessons is there any other free lessons? They also are over priced for example the prices are: 15.99, 29.99, 49.99, and 84.99! The rest is ok but do you have to pay for the rest of the lessons?
Listen and Repeat 4/5
By Denis Law
This is the second time that I have used Babbel to learn some basic language skills.Last year I tried Italian and enjoyed the experience and definitely improved my knowledge and command of the Italian language,which proved very useful on our trip to the Amalfi coast last year.
I have recently started another Babbel course,this time in Spanish.I have to say that I am coming across the same challenge that I had on the Italian course.
I have a Scottish accent,and am generally understood by friends!
However,on Babbel when I am in Listen and Repeat,it gives me a fail when I repeat words,even the simplest of words like ‘Si ‘and ‘Yo’! My Spanish friend has complimented me on my pronunciation,but unfortunately Babbel does not!
Finally,I have tried to put in a Nickname at the system’s request and I am up to my 8th attempt,and am advised all are already taken! I have even put in very personal data and it says this Nickname is taken! Really! Now up to 16 submissions!
Oh boy!! 1/5
This app continually crashes and will not respond correctly. Very disappointed 😒 Again — I can NOT even use the services I paid for ... shame on you Babbel!!! 👎🏼
Too many editing issues make it unreliable 2/5
Could be good, but how can you trust them when they have editing mistakes.
Who wants to learn wrong!?!
Good but you have to pay 3/5
After the first lesson, you have to pay, they teach really good though.
No Hebrew! 😭 1/5
Theres no language course for the language Hebrew! Would you guys consider adding that language please! I know that Duolingo and Rosetta Stone have a hebrew course, along with Memrise, Mango, and Drops! Would you please add Hebrew! 😭
Great App!!! 5/5
It makes it easier to learn a new language and it’s very user friendly.
Utter crap 1/5
Oh, 1-2 lessons, and then pay! Wasn’t even helpful If you are looking for free, try duo. If you are looking for quality, try rosetta stone.
Error problem 3/5
I really enjoy using Babbel. The only problem I have with this app is every time I want to continue with the next lesson it either takes forever to load or there’s an error. I want to be able to use this app, everyday, not every other day.
App won’t open, just says try later. 1/5
App won’t open, just says try later.
Great app! 5/5
I have been using this app for a week and feel like i am learning fast. I having been using another immersion app and really didn’t understand the tenses etc. and it has already been covered in the first few lessons. I like this app for how it moves, and its development.
Canceling Subscription 3/5
I had years of French when I was younger and just wanted a refresh. I used Duolingo for 6 months and felt like trying Babbel since there was a lot of buzz about it. It’s become repetitive and boring. The microphone rarely operates properly and I’m not learning. In fact, some of the French I have ingrained in my head is totally different in Babbel. I have even checked out the translations elsewhere. My 3 month subscription is over in one month and I’ve already cancelled it. Not worth the money. Sorry, Babbel. I gave it a shot and I wanted to like your courses but not worth the cost.
By Blond diper
It’s good till the first lesson but then you have to pay money to learn !
Eh, I’ve seen better 2/5
Hey there! I just feel like Babbel is a copy to Duolingo, since it was the 1st best language speaking lessons.
Excellent from all perspectives 5/5
It seems like all areas of learning a language are covered: pronunciation, usage, practical experience, spelling, necessary review, reasonable starting point and progression, etc. Go Babbel!
Waste of time 1/5
There isn’t any context behind the words they are teaching. They just throw them at you without explanation and expect you to know them. It’s all memorization. Helps with translating text but when it comes to holding a conversation with an actual Spanish speaker, it is little help.
No refund 1/5
I used the system maybe two times. I didn’t like the way they teach.
Much later, it auto-renewed.
I contacted them the day it auto-renewed and asked for a refund. No response.
I contacted them again. No response.
No funciona mi app 1/5
Pague la suscripción y ahora me sale que ocurre un problema y no puedo estudiar... muy mal
Rip off 1/5
All you need to know
Great Next Step 5/5
Started studying Swedish with Duolingo and completed all the lessons there before moving on to Babbel. The two systems are very different in their approaches. I have benefited from both, but Babbel has taken what I learned from Duolingo and built it to the next level in terms of understanding and speaking. I would recommend this to anyone serious about their language learning.
Just meh 1/5
WHAT THE HECK 1/5
I started babbel to get better at my Spanish and y’all had to make me pay money. Little did I know that you guys took my money every month for the membership NOT COOL and I got no notifications that you guys were taking my money. I mean cmon I deleted the app and you guys took my money. If you read this I recommend to not get this but get duolingo at least they don’t steal your money.😑😑😤😤
PLEASE READ!!!!!😡😡 2/5
I really like this app but it’s just that I did my first lesson then I had to pay.but I do not know what the deal is because if I were to make an app I would’ve had at least five lessons before I pay cause I don’t know what the app is about until I’ve played it for a while.
German Language 2/5
I want to learn German and unfortunately the keyboard that is presented in the lesson does not contain the correct characters for the German language. This means often the answer is marked incorrect because you’re unable to type in the correct characters.
App not working 2/5
I gave this 2 stars as of now because I just got it and it just freezes on the initial little tests and I have to start over. App just not working. Will revise this review later if they fix it.
App has a major flaw. The keyboard covers up most of the page when you are asked to enter responses so that you cannot see what you are asked about. As a result, only the items on the bottom of the page, usually just one item can be seen. The rest can only be guessed at!! That entire section is therefore a waste of time
Pull the Plug 1/5
You pulled the plug on a genuinely non racist conservative Tucker Carlson. I’m pulling the plug on you. Too bad, I was learning. Rosetta Stone here I come
I downloaded FREE APP then Never opened because my password wouldn’t take so I deleted Icon.
Duolingo is better... 1/5
By Kurt Stockton
I tried this for a decent amount of time, and after using it for many weeks, I found Duolingo to be a much better product overall, this app seems more like technology from 15 years ago it just doesn’t look as cool or move me along as much as Duolingo does.
Babbel should probably focus more on their products, I can’t wait to try it again someday, it just needs work and some updating.
Total Rip Off 1/5
I have been wanting to improve my Spanish and after the bombardment of Babel ads I was sucked in. Then I found myself writing the word “gracias” from a type of anagram as a way of teaching how to say thanks in Spanish. Utterly useless. I could go on. Do not waste your money as I did. Now I need to be careful to be sure they do not charge me again in three months.
App doesn't work 1/5
Sorry, I don't have more time to get into details, but I simply had too many problems getting the app to work.
Horrible app 1/5
By Value snd Quality Matter
Difficult to read due to small, fixed text size. Kind of important when learning a new lesson.
Do not waste your money. You can get better.
Dodged a bullet! 1/5
I downloaded this app after hearing an ad on the radio. It sounded like a great way to let my kids dive into a new language. I had not quite got around to setting up an account as I’m a very busy business owner and have to set aside time for that sort of thing. As I was reviewing the content our Social Media manager had posted to Twitter, out of pure luck a post this company made happened to catch my eye. Any company that allows business decisions to be influenced by political views is not a company I want to have anything to do with. I’m not a Fox News fan but this sort of behavior is at its least troubling and at most dangerous. There is a reason civilized people do not discuss religion or politics publicly.
This is supposed to work? 2/5
I don’t understand this app, there are about 15 questions on 2 different levels, it didn’t teach me anything. It would give you easy things like “bonjour” for “hello” (I was doing French) and immediately give you things that take days to remember, I finished this app in just two days, I cannot recommend this app for people who are trying to learn French. :(
Trash app 1/5
From a repugnant organization. You’d have a better chance of learning a new language by slamming your head against the wall or getting a brain tumor.
Es una aplicación fácil de usar y que te da la oportunidad de repasar avanzar y mantenerte activo yo le dedico de 15 a 20 minutos diarios de lunes a viernes y funciona
No use for their politics 1/5
By Daytona Chuck
Duolingo is a good alternative
Overall pretty good 4/5
The app helps with reading, writing, and speaking Spanish. You learn the rules of the language. Building on what you have learned. Overall very happy with it. The lessons aren’t too long so if you are limited on time you can finish up what you are working on.
My problem with the site is I tend to find at least one error in what they show you and what you are supposed to translate. It seems like oversight in their editting. For example, in Lesson 16-Vamos en Avion Part 1, it was going over the rule for using a for the word at. Combining a with the masculine article el together to form al. They were testing me on whether to write a with the feminine una or la or the masculine al or a un with the word given. One of the question had the word in with my word which it would be translated en, I wrote it correctly, but was marked wrong. Obviously, they wrote the answer wrong. It is aggravating to get answers wrong when it wasn’t caught when designing. I wonder how many others catch it. I haven’t dealt with Spanish since high school, thought I should based on where I live now. I would be happy to point them out for the website creators if they would like.
Overall, pleased. I would recommend for kids to do in the summer if they are going to be doing a language in high school, for adults wanting to learn something new, or those revamping their language skills. It is much cheaper than Rosetta stone and Rosetta stone’s sample didn’t include any writing.
Babbel is Repugnant 1/5
Since you seem to think Tucker Carlson is repugnant and are blacklisting and boycotting his show, I in turn find your app and your company philosophy repugnant and will be permanently deleting your app from all of my devices.
Tucker Ad 3/5
We loved your ad on Tucker Carlson.
Bye Bye Babbel 1/5
I like Tucker Carlson. I’m glad you spoke out. The app is deleted and my hard earned dollars will go elsewhere.
My kids use this. I’m looking for a replacement. Babbel is boycotting Tucker Carlson. The only guy on Fox that is open enough to allow on guests with different opinions and willing to change his mind. Stick to teaching and away from Antifa tactics.
Removed Babbel 1/5
I had it and now removed it. You want to bring politics into your business model, good for you. I am for free speech and not censorship. #Tucker
Just downloaded DuoLingo
Better to give your business to a company that just wants to be a Language Improvement business and not being your morality police. Repugnant.
