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.

  • Outstanding value

    By NeoNutt
    I am preparing to visit Germany and trying to re-learn Deutsch (I took 2 years in college, but that was 50 years ago, no practice since!). I don't write reviews often, but have taken other digital courses (Spanish). By comparison, Babbel has been really useful for me (granted, everyone has different learning styles). It teaches quickly with a variety of teaching strategies and helpful comments aside. I really like the many features including options for review, flashcards, dialogue practice. It is very easy to navigate and access menus. Highly recommended! Note: I have not received anything to write this, but I value reading reviews by others when researching new purchases.
  • Not the Spanish I was hoping for

    By D8532589
    There is a job opportunity I am hoping for but needs proficiency in Spanish so when I heard the promo on a podcast I listen to,I jumped at the chance to learn more conversational Spanish. I paid my 3 months only to realize that it's really more European Spanish and not Mexican/ Latin American Spanish. I haven't used the app as much as I've used the website and what I did get through was great. If I was wanting to learn European Spanish (or any of the other languages offered) I'd rate this 5 stars. But for me this was not the Spanish I wanted. Sorry.
  • Conversational Spanish

    By Biomedfred
    I love how they start a conversation and make you become a part of it with their questions.
  • Very good but limited languages

    By Rex Matt
    I love the app. It is the best I have tried. It is the best method I have ever tried. It's like having a teacher working one on one with you. My only complaint is that they don't have the language I have been working on and wanting to learn. I hope they expand to include more languages. I am looking for Hungarian.
  • No Nihongo

    By Omega1133
    No support for learning Japanese. I never bothered going further. MANY requests on every place available to write comments on their websites to please add Japanese but I've never seen an official comment on it.

    This app is not working

  • It's Great

    By LadyPinky71
    I'm really enjoying this app. I like the way it says a sentence aloud and then listens as you repeat it and tells you if you're correct or not. If I need to skip any, it doesn't count against the final score because you still have to identify the words and phrases taught, in print and also by ear. I love that part because it's teaching me to actually listen and be able to recognize what I hear. Pronunciation improves as I go along. It's a cool, fun and effective way to really learn a language, at my own pace because the lessons can be done again and again.
