  • Could Be Better...

    By Lolee249
    I do like this app. I was interested when I saw the advertisement. I use it a lot. I am giving this app my rating because. I do not think it is app is very exciting and fun. For ages twelve and under, I think kids do not enjoy this. I know I don't, and I am younger than thirteen. Maybe you could make it more fun, and interesting. It is also frustrating and I am not learning much. You need to a bit more slowly and explain things. It gets more and more confusing. Anyway, overall I think the app is pretty great. I highly recommend this app if you are at least fifteen or older.
  • One issue

    By Lady Merrr
    So far I love the program. However, it is very difficult to tell in the program the difference between a I and a lowercase L. Very often when I get an answer wrong it's because of that. Please please fix this so that a Uppercase I has both a header and a footer in the update.
  • Meet me where I am!

    By Sarel713
    I was excited for this app since it boasted learning through conversion, which is one of my weaker points. I feel like I'm a 4 from 1-10 on conversational fluency in Spanish, more like 6 for reading and writing. I even put "advanced" when I signed up hoping it would challenge me. Instead I find myself practicing "hola" and "si" even though I scored perfectly on the initial assessment. This is the exact way I loose interest in most language programs. Please don't make me practice how to say hello if I can already navigate a simple conversation.
  • Spanish lessons are the worst

    By onetech-cc
    I don't know how this app could get such high ratings. Don't waste your money. Got this exclusively to learn Spanish to keep up with my daughter who is a Spanish major. I was convinced it would be right by an NPR ad and the ratings. When I saw the ratings, I thought maybe it would be a good idea to get the yearly sub and brush up on my French, too. I struggled for weeks on just the Spanish beginner course 1. Didn't get even 9 lessons in. The app expected me to know the spelling of words they hadn't even taught me yet and showed me in a 3-second screen shot. I showed it to my daughter who has taken years of since middle school and she thought it's method was nuts. I don't expect the French lessons are going to be any better. Going with Duolingo instead. Hope I can get my money back.
  • Good app but crashing on 7th chapter

  • Babbel helped me integrate into Germany!

    By Johnnykurtz
    I lived for 16 months in Dresden Germany. If it was not for Babel, I would've had a very hard time integrating into the community of Dresden, a beautiful city in Germany. All of my friends in Germany were very impressed with my language skills, and the speed at which I was learning to speak Deutsch.
  • Great app

    By Dali847465
    It's a great app to learn certain things but I really wanted to learn Japanese and that wasn't a option sadly but if they added Japanese that would be awesome
  • Muy útil para mí.

    By Banjolover47
    I love being able to review the lessons whenever I have a spare moment.
  • Perfect or close

    By Matt Turpin
    I use Babbel and DuoLingo in tandem as part of a mission to keep all my high school and college French from going away. Babbel earns its monthly fee by being much more organic an experience compared to the latter's fairly random vocab quiz style. They both have their uses, but this is better for learning, while the other is useful for retention. The presentation is second to none here, and you feel like you're learning relevant statements at every turn. My only complaint is that, seemingly randomly, the voice recognition goes from laid back and understanding to absolutely draconian, and when it's the latter, and you're tweaking inflections on this syllable or that on your 20th try, it should tell you what part it doesn't like.
  • Ugh

    By sk8terIVY
    I try speaking into the microphone and it won't register that I'm speaking into it. And I say the word multiple times and keeps saying I'm wrong when I KNOW I'm saying it RIGHT!!!
