Babbel – Learn Languages Spanish, French & more

Learn Spanish, French, Italian, German, and many more languages with Babbel, the shortest path to real-life conversations in a new language. Developed by a team of language learning experts, Babbel has helped millions of people speak a new language with confidence.

The Babbel Method

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

Babbel – Learn Languages Spanish, French & more Reviews


Good in some ways  Fluentwannabe  2 star

I wish one could go back a step or more, if you mistype etc. or simply for review. As it is, you have to do the whole exercise again. There seems to be too wide a gap between the simple vocabulary exercises and the rapidly spoken, much more complex dialogues.


Doesn't hear me  LindyAnnaJones88  1 star

I LOVED this app during my first lesson, and was about to purchase it to keep learning. But I wanted to review the first lesson once more before moving forward. Thankfully I did because the microphone doesn't hear me anymore. It says it's listening (all the setting are on) but it never accepts my answer


Doesn't work  11111122222222233333344445567  1 star

Crap. Subscription doesn't work after paying for it. Stuck in spinning circle forever.


Works for me  G8R26  4 star

I am satisfied.

Don't  Alexander Mar  1 star

Download it, read reviews, then delete it.


Waste of money  trykyvyk  1 star

Stupid app won't even accept the plan I already paid for. Can't take any lessons and wasted my money.


Italian Babble  carnogu  1 star

I had to call my Bank and cancel payment because after paying the monthly subscription, never I was able to open the lessons. Sorry


Must pay monthly  ArtopiaGal  3 star

I like the app just fine, the issue is it is a membership service. After the first brief lesson, you are promoted to purchase a membership. There are many apps like Duolingo that offer unlimited lessons. The app is great except for the expense.


Pretty Darn Good  Barbaray02  4 star

Overall, I was very satisfied with my experience using babble. Although this app isn't completely free and has it's share of flaws (like any other app), I do agree with the other reviewers that it is at the top of the chain compared to other language-learning apps (ex. Duolingo). It's really straightforward and allows you to efficiently advance in your language journey, no matter what level you are at. If you are doubtful, just download it! This app really doesn't disappoint. :)


Really helpful!  BrittanyLisa  4 star

Better for learning or brushing up on conversational Spanish than Duolingo.


Great app  larryswit  5 star

I love Babel. I have learned more in 3 weeks with this app than I did with 2 months of other well known apps. Keep making improvements. Well worth the costs.

Not a good app  mishka piska  1 star

The intro lesson is fine. From then on you will hear the words and you repeat them to match proper pronunciation. This is where the app fails as it won't work properly. Don't download this app.


Learning Italian  Iamaddicted:)  3 star

While using on an iPad on lesson 3, the keyboard covers the information so I can not see the missing words I am supposed to type. I paid for this app and am very frustrated. The keyboard needs to disappear or move.


Bad app  ililyster  1 star

Only give you one lesson to try, then you have to buy monthly fee, to continue, what low way to practice ! Deleted app, there are better app out there , you should just make a pay up front before make people sign up.


Overall very good  Y2king  4 star

This is a very good language learning app. I prefer it to Duolingo, even though you have to pay for it. I did notice a few bugs in the app, but I'm sure they can be worked out over time. Also, a 'back' or redo button on a task just done would be good. So far it's helping no end with my Spanish.


Great but I wish it was free  Jenniferissadbutrad  4 star

It's a great app and all but I just wish it was free, I want to learn to speak Spanish to communicate with friends and family but I don't have money to pay for the app

Santiago Castelazo

So few languages  Santiago Castelazo  2 star

Why does the app only have 14 languages? They're too few. I would love to be able to learn catalan.


The BEST!!  Travelita  5 star

I love Babbel! It is very fun, interesting and teaches you the formal and informal ways to communicate. I have referred Babbel to flight attendants, students, strangers and even my coworkers. After spending hundreds on Rosetta Stone this is by far the best and far more helpful. I do not understand why I have not seen any advertisements on TV yet. If you want a great deal get the 12 month subscription.


Waste of money  Samshuwa  2 star

It's good if you want to learn spelling! It's so annoying and be careful, they will renew the subscription without your permission!

Dugan bruiser

Seems promising  Dugan bruiser  5 star

At this point I'm 17 lessons in to the 1st beginners segment. There is a lot of content on here so I believe it worth the cost to use the program. My only complaint is id like the option to be able to have a one time purchase of the app rather than a subscription but that is a minor quibble.
