Babbel – Learn Languages

Babbel – Learn Languages application logo

Learn Spanish, French, Italian, German, and many more languages with Babbel. Developed by a team of language learning experts, Babbel has helped millions of people speak a new language with confidence.

Here’s what makes Babbel more effective than any other language learning app:

1. Confidence — Our goal is to get you speaking from your very first lesson. And our elegantly designed courses give you the confidence to get there. We teach you how to engage in practical, everyday conversations, making it easier for you to have authentic experiences in your new language.

2. Comprehension — Our lessons immerse you in relevant culture and real-life conversations. We want you to really take in the language, not just memorize useless phrases. And we provide helpful hints in English (or your native language) to make your new language more relatable.

3. Retention — We know you’re busy. That’s why our lessons are short but sweet: about 10-15 minutes, and designed to send your new language straight to long-term memory. We regularly refresh your memory with our dynamic review sessions, which target areas where you need improvement most. Finally, we make sure you really grasp what you’re learning by bringing it back later in a new context.

• 14 languages to choose from
• 10-15 minute, bite-sized lessons that fit conveniently into your schedule
• Lessons covering a wide range of useful topics, from travel to business (and more!)
• Speech recognition technology to keep your pronunciation on point
• Courses at a variety of skill levels, making Babbel ideal for both beginners and more advanced learners
• Our robust Review Manager helps you retain new vocabulary
• Learning progress that’s synchronized across all your devices, so you can easily pick up right where you left off

Spanish, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Polish, English, Indonesian, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian

After just one month, you will be able to speak confidently about practical topics, such as:
• Transportation
• Shopping
• Directions
• Making friends and socializing
• Dining
And much more!

Babbel – Learn Languages Reviews


No option to designate dialect  kzipps  2 star

I was interested in learning Latin Spanish. However, the option to remove the vosotros function does not exist so not only was I forced to learn vocabulary from a region I wasn’t interested in, I also had to learn an additional dialect which I didn’t want to.


Was Great Now Awful  Eirik_Thorsen  1 star

I used this app every day for 2 years to help build my German language skills. With the updates it no longer lets me enter special characters with Umlauts. This makes the app unusable and I’ve been writing support for months - they answer it’s a known issue but they haven’t fixed it (iPad Pro with Apple keyboard).


It should be free  emidoesgaming  3 star

Why do you need a subscription to get access to the other lessons? When I saw the TV ad I thought it was free! I love it and all but why do you need to pay to get the other lessons?


Best app to learn a language  Toxynce  5 star

Hands down the best language learning app I’ve found. This app teaches a really good selection of essential vocabulary, you can pick and choose which courses suit you, the voice recognition for practicing speaking is on point, and I’ve never found grammar explained so well in another app (or even textbook)!


WONDERFUL APP  Apirl234  5 star

I saw this on an add and wanted to learn Koren at a my age (12) and everything has worked perfectly if you want to do this I 100% appove


No Asian languages?!  kykyyyyyyyy  2 star

Good app, but not diverse enough collection of languages to learn!


French  MichiganAvenue  5 star

So far.. so good.


Not a fan  PinchCalico  1 star

Simplistic, terrible interface, poor audio and awful audio recognition. Besides the snail’s pace progress, this app does nothing to deserve a premium status and require a fee. Do not waste your money. There are far superior free apps with better usability, audio, recognition and potential for rapid progress. I wish I could get my money back.


Traveler  TXgardener124  4 star

Im impressed with the app. Just being able to hear and rehear words being pronounced earned a 5 star rating. I definitely know education-years of school AND teaching-so, as learning a new language goes- they’ve sure made it doable AND affordable. I went with 4 stars for 2 reasons; 1. I’d like to slow down the speech( pronunciation). 2. A course for travelers, eg. order food, find bathrooms, get directions or help would be advantageous.


Need money  123683674  4 star

The app is very good with helping you learn. However after the first lesson you must buy a subscription to continue learning


Latin?  LittleRainCloud49  4 star

The app is great, but it would awesome if we could learn Latin :)


Good, But we don’t all have money!  SaltieCroc  3 star

The problem with this app is there are kids, like me, who have no money and can’t just pay for everything, you also realise that the subscriptions are awfully expensive


Tagalog  LesRC666  1 star

Still no Philippine, oh well, check again next year


Practice, practice, practice  dhowardabbott  2 star

The app is very good as it is spoken by real people, not in a classroom. And I am enjoying learning German. However, it is sometimes very, very frustrating when the word, sentence or phrase disappears before I have a chance to practice it. If i get it wrong or right it’s gone. I want to be able to ‘tap it, listen, practice, tap, listen, practice’. If I am having trouble with a sentence or phrase there is no time to repeat it to learn it. And I need to learn it.


Didn’t count my subscription  PerceusPotter123  3 star

I want to learn French, and you can only access the first lesson without subscribing. That’s fine, but I paid $50 for three months subscription so I could use it, and it didn’t work. It said I’d subscribed and paid, but I didn’t get the use of the subscription at all. I couldn’t do what was advertised.


I like it but not that much  obi🍍  1 star

I like the app, but it dose not have much languages to Learn and they do not really teach you that much. It is also to fast to read or hear but on Er than that it is good 😊

10 year old girl Lejla

BAD BAD  10 year old girl Lejla  1 star

Not a very good app. I'm from the Balkans and they don't have Bosnia Serbia or Croatia. They only have like 10 languages which is stupid


I hate it  [email protected]  1 star

It wouldn’t let me do the other lessons after she payed for it.I couldn’t use the app I had to use google and I’m not happy about that.😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 I shouldn’t even have to rate this app I give this app 1 star until it will work correctly for me.


Good apps but AUDIO PROBLEMS OFFLINE  TjDLife  2 star

Downloaded the App and all beginners courses to start learning Spanish while I was at sea for a month, to find that the audio does not work properly while offline. This fault renders the app all but useless to to me. The description clearly states that courses are downloadable and work offline which is why I signed up. Have emailed babbel support and awaiting a response...

Éspanol Student

Straightforward learning, But...  Éspanol Student  4 star

When online, the app works perfectly, and I feel its lessons are more relevant than some other apps. However, when offline, saved lessons do not load correctly, making the lessons impossible to do. If the offline lesson feature worked it would be a 5 Star app


Not free  Lily_cat_amazing  3 star

For that one lesson that I had I liked but it was just to be in his course because I did not want to pay for the rest of the app and you do pay monthly I thought that’s going to be a free app but I guess it’s not and it is pretty expensive too so if I did manage to pay that it would still be pretty expensive and even though I did like it that a lot it was still pretty expensive but it’s very good if you’re willing to pay that expense I really did love it and another app that is free yet I don’t like as much but it is free so I do use it I try to daily it is Duolingo However I do like it I don’t like it as much but it is free and as you might think with the free app you do getAdvertisements but you can pay to get rid of that but you can still get all the lessons for free without paying but you will get advertisements every once in a while but the point here is that babble was very great I was very excited but then I got to the point where I had to pay for second course and I did not want to do that because again I know I’ve said this a lot it was very expensive but if it’s app has a course that has add I think it would be very very worth it because I do very much like this app in the way that it is it teaches you how to spell and how to pronounce things and what means what and the voices that tell you what is what are very clear they are not robotic they are very nice and I really wish that this was free and I could have some free education but you know that has to make money somehow but then I could just get her use advertisements which I would be most 100% willing to endure because this was a very good app I cannot stress enough how much it how great it was but I could not pay that much.


Didn’t have the language I wanted to learn  GREAT TIME KILLER ;) :)  1 star

I wanted to learn Korean and I thought that this would be a great app to learn Korean... low and behold, they didn’t even have the Korean language on the app! Please tell me they are adding more languages, cause I really want to learn Korean


Very good app but  ACAngeles  3 star

i like it better that duolingo but after the first course or lesson you have to pay. it’s not too expensive but duolingos lessons are all free and you can’t really beat that. hope this review helped.


Great app but what happened to review all?  GrouchyCoach  5 star

The app is great but they removed the review all function in the vocabulary which I found very helpful for recognizing words and inflections


Very helpful  Omsirat!  5 star

I am using this to strengthen my understanding and ability to speak German. I find this app very helpful and well worth the cost.


Ok  DetAC1  2 star

What i dont like is that i cannot go from the computer to my phone. I want to review something i did on the computer and i cant pick it up on my phone. It seems like the lessons are different.


Babbel >>> Duolingo  eekbarbadurkle  5 star

Babbel is hands down a million times better!!! Love you Duolingo, you’re free and all, but I am never going to use the phrase “the man drinks milk” in any language ever. I decided to try Babbel because I got so frustrated trying to guess seemingly random new grammar patterns on Duolingo (hello German). Babbel starts by teaching you practical phrases for traveling right off the bat and also takes time to explain all the grammar rules one by one, as well as when two phrases with the same meaning are used informally/formally, ie practical social etiquette. You learn using full conversations, like how to order and pay at a restaurant. It’s so much more practical and useful than Duolingo. If you are serious about learning a language, give Babbel a try. You will not be disappointed. 👍


Outdated and Sexist  Marlojc  1 star

The material in the French beginners course starts out normal but then takes a weird shift where it is all about thin,pretty girls and the men that like them. Really, I would never use the conversation examples taught in this section of the course ever,very irrelevant. Why not use any other adjective to get the language lesson objective across? Cancelling my subscription.


Falls info  jacob27161819920373636  1 star

I saw this from the radio and thought it would be cool to learn German. It said it was free , one lesson in and it than it need ed a subscription which was 13 dollars a month! So, no thanks!


Quick response on log in issue!  jbwitchdance  5 star

I love the app! I had some issues logging in via mobile and I was contacted quickly and professionally. To everyone who works hard on this application, Merci!


.  CinderBolt  2 star

I downloaded this app because I’m a student and need to learn Irish and french. Sadly, the app didn’t teach Irish, which is my second language that I’m not very good at. I was also disappointed that the first lesson is free and then all the rest cost money. I had to delete the app as I can’t pay since I’m under the age of eighteen. Wish it was free, but they probably won’t change that. Overall it would be a good app if people were willing to pay.


Canceling is a nightmare  Lmoetgjyj  3 star

Signed up for a month but when I tried to cancel the subscription I’m having trouble. I can’t cancel via the app the App Store iTunes or the babble website. I messaged Babbel and still have not had an answer after 3 days. Not happy.

Terry  Yorkie t  5 star

Very helpful and goes at the Same pace as you learn


Not as good as I thought  gerlala  2 star

I find it introduces a lot of Spanish words in conversation pieces that I am not familiar with. And these don't get repeated again in the piece


It's a good app  Kirsty858  5 star

I like it but I wish it had more language options especially for Asian languages. If it had Korean I would be so happy, but sadly it doesn't better go look for another app that does.


Excellent  Tom82lp  4 star

Brilliant app that keeps me improving.


Best ever...  EnlightenedTwo  4 star

Trust me, there's no better way to learn a language!! I've tried them all, and only succeeded with Babbel. One year on and I feel totally confident in my ability to converse and understand to an extent undreamed of just one short year ago. It's available on all my devices and I can review all previous lessons while taking a walk. I generally spend about 30 to 40 minutes on the lessons each day - and there's fantastic support available if required. Go for it!!


Superb  Newtrader3768  5 star

This is a fantastic language learning app. Easily the best one I've experienced.

Double OS

Excellent Ap  Double OS  5 star

Of all the Spanish learning apps I have tried, this is by far the best for me. I do have a problem, however, with your English. For example, in the comparative lesson, "más guapo que yo" is translated as "more handsome than me" when it should be "more handsome than I". "Am" is understood. Yo is nominative in Spanish and should also be nominative in English. However it is Spanish I am learning!!

Dolphin tricks

😒  Dolphin tricks  1 star

Come on. I mean, only your first lesson free? Way too expensive.


:(  dibbie85ciara  1 star

This stupid app keeps logging me out and then when I log back in it not only forgets which courses or even which language I am busy with, and doesn’t reflect the package I paid for! Still haven’t got it fixed so right now I can’t access the material I paid through my neck for and on the other app (nobody knows why you would have a Babbel AND a Babbel French), it hasn’t kept track of my progress so I am back to square one. Not cool.


Grate app  Yasin1127  5 star

But you should give free trial at least for month


Me  101nati  5 star

It's awesome but costs ,it would be cool if it were free


Just wondering.  Hdywhgjsydhndhehdbydhdjdj  4 star

Will you be adding Hebrew to the app any time soon?


Argument for PAID Duolingo?  Matt_SouthAfrica  2 star

It seems a great app. And I fairly enjoyed the free lessons available. But I cannot see why I should be buying this, when I can enjoy the same lessons for FREE on Duolingo. Can you provide an argument for that? Otherwise I'm sticking to Duolingo.


Best app ever  Cool-some  5 star

This is THE best app to use... we are learning French in school and this app makes it so easy to keep up with all the work learned

Es ist Awesome!!!  thatguylionel  5 star

This application is incredibly setup from a web perspective, of which the iStore app just compliments the tool. Absolutely worth investing time in learning a new language
