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.

I have tried many programs, but this one makes me feel like I am getting somewhere simply because it keeps reinforcing lessons to be learned. No other program has kept me so involved.
Says it’s free (with in app purchases) but what it doesn’t say is you have to buy the whole entire thing after the first lesson!!!!!!!!
I tried learning Russian with so many diffident formats and this is the only thing that's worked. Would recommend to anyone trying to learn another language.
Just can I please ask for more languages...specifically Korean (south) and Japanese. Please and Thank you! Love this app!~
I should know, I’m using duo lingo, Rossetta Stone, and Learning language. This app does what those later three should do. I’m learning Italian at an accelerated rate.
Yes, Babbel does cost money. But it is so worth it! You can choose a variety of languages and in a few days you’ll learn all the basics! Now the “ hard “ part isn’t really hard. It’s really easy! 10 minutes a day in a year... you’ll be fluent with the language! This app is amazing and deserves the best❤️❤️❤️
I love babble. I use this every day to learn French and find the lessons easy to understand and work with. The only reason I docked one star for this app is because it doesn’t give the option to turn off the microphone for lessons when using the phone like it does on the computer. Sometimes I use this app at restaurants and cannot speak into my phone because of background noise. It should give the option to use with or without the microphone. Other than that, I love using babble.
Interesting course. I think you can learn the basics of any language with this app. It is enjoyable to use in spare time.
Mediocre at best
I started using Babbel (French) after my friend recommended it and I just love it! The lessons are the perfect length and I love the way they are set out into 3 parts - introduction, exercises and revision/renforcement. The grammar notes throughout the lessons are also a wonderful way to make things clearer. Personally, I find it easy to learn something if there is a ‘rule’, you know, things like, “ i before e, except after c” (I still recite it when I write the word, ‘receive’) and Babbel’s Little grammar notes during the lesson at the appropriate times are like those little ‘lightbulb moments’ where you just think, “oh, now I get it!” The images help reinforce what you are learning too and the accents are clear. Wish I’d started it earlier! Thanks for an amazing App, Babbel! :)
Don’t mind the way the app reviews verbs and variations, but I find it doesn’t like my pronounciation with even simple words and phrases- and the voice listening component often cuts me off before I am finished.
I was a bit apprehensive about this app as I had used other language apps (which failed to really teach anything..) Babble however is a highly informative, clean (in design) and engaging app :) I have used it for Swedish and purchased the 12 month plan, so far I have greatly enjoyed the app and use it for at least 10 minutes everyday. I highly recommend this app to anyone wishing to learn a language.
He aprendido español por 5 años y Babbel es la aplicación mejor para aprender los idiomas!! Gracias, Babbel! 5 estrellas para tí!
Freaking ridiculous how fast the French narrators speak. I’m really trying my hardest to learn the basics of pronunciation in the very early stages of learning the language but the narrated examples are just TOO FAST!!! I’m having so much difficulty trying to parse the words let alone figure out how to repeat them back. I understand that people speak really quickly in real life conversations - but I’m still in the first chunk of beginner lessons, throw me a goddamn bone here!!! And no feedback about what you’re pronouncing wrong in what section of the phrase you’re trying to say only compounds the problem - makes the “listen and repeat” sections frustrating to the point of skipping over them completely or exiting the app...
Thank you Babbel for letting me learn languages!!!
I find that I can simply trust the system. If I think that I will never be able to remember THAT word, or how those pronouns, etc, are used, but keep on practising, knowledge sneaks up and it is absorbed like osmosis. I am really enjoying learning and try to speak and apply my learned words each day.
Babbel has helped me to travel all over the world and accomplished my dreams thanks babble.
Really enjoy using this app, but when I’ve transferred my data to a new phone, everything (account info and subscription, review words etc) transfers across. But what didn’t go across, is what lessons I’ve already done. It follows that the lessons wouldn’t be downloaded automatically, because when restoring from backup on a new phone, downloads don’t occur. But it’d be great to have a function in the app that at least can display what lessons have already been completed or half way through etc.
Really awesome, it is helping me learn French quickly and thoroughly, but it’s really pricey and I have no income at all. #Kidlife
Why would u have to pay to learn another language what if u need it really quickly because u are moving to another country
Starts right out without any pronunciation introduction. Then all the response is typed. I would rather speak the language then type it. Rather quickly into forms of to be. I’d be happier with some more conversational bits to start.
This MUST B UPGRADED BEING CHARGED ONCE FOR EVERY LANGUAGE I MEAN DIS IZ CRAY CRAY!!!!!
I love it I wish you could learn Japanese because I want to watch precure
Has all the ingredients to increase language learning.
Very intuitive experience. I like the vocal recognition feature. And it's not boring.
To Babbel This app is great to learn languages from all over the world but you need money to have access to different sectors of the language you're learning . Thank you, ,Yours truly Valentino Joseph
I have used Babel for a few years now in conjunction with classes, other apps and workbooks to learn French. I can now read novels in French and handle most transactions. I highly recommend Babel. The lessons are short enough to accomplish the many times in our lives we were are waiting--in line at a restaurant, for the train, Doctor's office etc.... I love the framework and the way that the lesson reinforces and helps you recognize proper vs improper usage of words. I do not speak perfect French, but the words I do speak are easily recognized in France thanks to Babel's use of the mic and language recognition function. Highly recommend!
I think it is a really god app it's just that it switches to fast that it is hard to remember also why do you have to pay I just want to learn a language without paying. If that were to change I would give it five stars
My Italian was pretty much upper beginner level but after completing the first 3 courses, I feel super confident to speak the language. I like the variety of ways to learn. Some exercises are speaking, writing, fill in the blanks and audio. It's a great way to learn and I'm really enjoying it.
