I rarely do ratings but- 5/5
This app is exactly what I was looking for. I plan on moving to Japan within the next two years and this app makes me feel like learning the language isn’t as impossible as I once thought. The lessons are simple but effective and id strongly encourage anyone who plans to learn a language to COMMIT to this program. Learning another lang isn’t easy but it’s worth it remember that!
The single and only one I can think of is I wish there was a Korean lesson as well. I use two other apps for what I think this app could provide completely. But they have Russian so I might change that lol.
Too many gaps 2/5
I am not sure about other languages but Japanese is not really good. The first few lessons are very good, gradually consistently progress. Then after one lesson for katakana it jumps to a whole new level including many words and grammar not introduced previously. It is both discouraging and inconsistent. If it is a free app, then it is ok. But with the subscription, I am sure there are many other apps that are more helpful. I am more and more disappointed along the way.
Satisfying and Useful 5/5
Never had a language had that I got addicted to haha. Great setup and variation of questions and activities. The lesson plan helps a ton and there’s so much more content on here than I thought.
If this app has the language you want to learn than get it immediately
Worth every penny!
Best app for learning a new language but... 4/5
I love this app. I’ve tried just about every app out there to get a grasp on learning spanish (wife is from Spain and I want to impress her parents). Busuu breaks it down into in a way that isn’t just teaching you the rules, grammar, ect, but putting it into context with everyday things. My only complaint comes into reviewing past subjects. I wish they would break apart and organize the vocabulary into a better more manageable way instead of just alphabetical. I find myself scrolling to find a certain verb or phrase. Please separate it by verbs, nouns, phrases, ect. That would be a huge improvement. Same goes for the grammar lessons. Only some are added into the review section so I find myself scrolling and searching for a past lesson that I want to review. If it says grammar add it to the grammar section. Other than that awesome app. Worth the money.
Supper helpful 5/5
Such a good app for learning a language
I never feel the need to try other language learning apps ever since I used Busuu! 5/5
I never feel the need to try other language learning apps ever since I used Busuu! The phrases taught here are practical and user experience is so smooth!
The lessons are very fun to learn of what language do you like to speak
Estoy satisfecha con Busuu 5/5
By M. Pequetita
He hecho de todo para mejorar mi inglés, después de mucho buscar encontré Busuu, es una buena herramienta de aprendizaje.
Frustrating! Stick with Duolingo! 1/5
I downloaded the app yesterday and deleted it today. Unless you pay, the app is useless. I was able to complete the Day 1 activities, but the Day 2 activities were cancelled every time I hit the cancel button on the ad for the paid version. Duolingo has very good activities offered on the free version, and I’m sticking with that!
Os very cool
Best language app I’ve used 5/5
I have used my fair share of language learning apps but Busuu is the app I stick with. Its key feature is having interactions with native speakers from day one. Honestly, plain old humans are a better way to learn language than AI grammar bots. You will make mistakes and sometimes sound non sensical but it’s okay because the community is really nice and everyone helps one another in learning languages.
Busuu introduces concepts and new words in bite-size fashion. So that you’re making progress at a steady rate. In the dialogues, I feel like the ratio between “I’ve learned this stuff” and “let me try to figure out this other stuff” is good so that it never feels overwhelming. As mentioned above, interacting with native speakers helps tremendously in learning a new language and that makes Busuu stand apart from other apps. Will Busuu help you achieve an intermediate or advanced level on its own? No, but in addition to language tutoring sessions, flash cards and a textbook it will help a lot in your language journey from beginner to intermediate. So, yeah, in conclusion, I think the premium version is worth the money.
I love Busuu!😁❤️❤️😂 5/5
This is a very interesting interactive app, you can learn Spanish and any other language it’s very interesting! Try it!👍😁❤️🙏🙏😇
Professional App 5/5
Thanks you so much it’s really excellent.
I love this app and it’s helping me learn , the only thing I don’t like is that sometimes they give you a word for example “Apple” and in the translation you have to write “the Apple” instead of just “Apple” and vice verse with the “the” which gets confusing with some words
I Feel like I’m actually learning! 5/5
Love this app.
I love this app bro
Best language learning app 5/5
By Another iPhone Pato
Not as addicting or game-like as Duolingo but incorporates actual lessons and grading/help from real native speakers. Makes learning languages fun and manageable.

Busuu used to be a mediocre language learning app. Now it’s brilliant. I use it to learn German.

You’ll not regret it. Pls give it a try.
My cousin is Japanese and didn’t understand him but now i do when I started using buusuu
Great App - Some Issues overall its great 1/5
By Spec Ops Approved
However, some images are mismatched.
For example there is a scene depicted where a woman is asking for directions and they have the German word Entschuldigung (excuse me) but the answers are (yes, no, I’m sorry) and whilst you can use Entschuldigung, you wouldn’t you would say “Tut mir leid”. They need to work on the proper colloquial German translations. PS: I lived in Wiesbaden & Bad Kreuznach for 5 years.
Update: after using for a week the app is a disaster. I uploaded a video to YouTube to show how bad it is. I’ll say “wie gehts es dir” and the App will write on the Screen “wie gehts es dir” and then a half a second later it will erase that, (the correct text) and then not only do a bunch of completely random German words appear but then the app will repeat the random words in German and neglect to even translate it. It is so so bad that I had to upload a video to you tube! Oh and I made the mistake of buying the pro version so that has nothing to do with it. The app is so close to being good but for now it’s absolutely garbage. See the video

This app is the best hands down
Very helpful 5/5

Have tried Duolingo and others in the past. Busuu has really helped with Spanish much more than any other app I’ve tried. It really drives home verbs and tenses. Great app!

Great program! 5/5
By Optimus Maximus Roma
Love the immersion, pictures, sounds and how too. Can't beat it for the price and customer service.
Amazing app! 5/5
Muy amigable programa 5/5
Tengo 2 días usándolo y lo encuentro muy amigable además de muy practico ya que me permite leer las palabras, escucharlas y además me pide escribirlas, esto me refuerza el aprenderlas.
Tengo un tutor con quien practico hablar para asegurarme tengo la pronunciación correct. MUCHAS GRACIAS Y ESPERO PODER HABLAR FRANCÉS BIEN EN UNOS 4 A 6 MESES. Je suis tres content d’avoir ce programme.
It’s great! 5/5
Literally by the first day I was already speaking full sentences! It’s a work in progress when it comes to memorizing whatever language you want to learn, but it’s so worth it!
Busuu review 4/5
Very high price
Good service, but incomplete without paying for the subscription 3/5
By Michelle The Critical
I really enjoy the app and it is much easier to fit these lessons into my day than the lessons of some other apps, while feeling like I am learning something new and not going through the motions to continue my streak.
HOWEVER, if you are not paying for the subscription many parts of the learning process are off limits. This is very annoying and as I continue with the lessons, some of them are entirely unavailable and the next lesson is a little confusing because of the gap.
If you are not interested in seeing if this works well enough for you to invest, it may not be great in the long run. For Japanese, the quizzes and many grammar lessons are unavailable when using the freely available lessons. I have learned some nuances about words I already know, so it has still been a good experience.
If you can, supporting a great service is good. But if you can’t this can only help you with some portion of learning the language. This is why I reduced their star from 4 to 3. It is still useful but much less so.
Busuu is great! 5/5
The repetition, spelling, conversation-type of examples really is helping instill the language I’m learning! So easy to use and love that they can check for pronunciation!
Very easy to use. 5/5
This is a great way to either learn casually or aggressively.
More than just memorization 5/5
By Schwifty 66
This app does more than any of the other language apps out there for a similar price...it has you really think instead of just memorizing flash cards. The community is great, and will always give you feedback. The app shows you progression in a relevant way.
Quick learning 5/5
By C. Ralyea
The app is great for on the go learning. You are able to follow along easily and the lessons are not too long. The fact that you are able to be corrected by other users that are native to the language you are leaning is also nice.
I love this app 5/5
This app is really nice in which it works for any level, I am a beginner and I got this app 3 days ago and i’ve already started to love it. It has really nice features and it teaches very well. Though for some languages like Spanish I did hope for more vocabulary. But nevertheless it is a great app.
