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. 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.

  • It’s great but

    By ://sad
    My progress on the website did not update my progress on my iPhone app. I was 16/18 complete with my course when I went to bed and when I woke up and got on my phone I had to redo starting from 12. Wastes some time when I could be doing new lessons... Also constantly having issues with speech recognition no matter what mic, what device... sometimes it works briefly but then it just says everything is wrong or the mic/listen button glitches
  • Great app but

    By 에소 사랑하자!
    I think this app is really great, however because they don’t have the language I’m looking for I can’t use it. Please add Korean !
  • App is glitchy

    By Veloquate
    I like the concept and approach. However the app signs me out after half my sessions so I have to keep logging back in. It also can’t remember where I left off so I have to keep going back to the menu. Speech recognition is patchy tho that may be the fault of my phone. It’s a great tool if these errors could be fixed.
  • I use this in conjunction with Memerise and the comb is near perfect!

    By Lulu2008
    Babble does an amazing job teaching grammar and conversation. Whereas Memerise does an incredible job teaching vocabulary and listening skills. Using the two in conjunction check all the boxes!
  • Babbel Spanish Review

    By B. Meny
    Excellent app. I used this a month before I began my Spanish class. I was very well prepared. I couldn’t recommend it enough for Spanish!
  • Please add korean

    By Astisel
    This looks and sounds great but please add korean :D
  • What about Japanese

    By Marrionette Gaming
    I’m going to a trip to Japan and I need to learn the language bc i have family there and they don’t understand English
  • Good app

    By Strhdhdjdjjdjdhfh
    Great app! Would recommend. I tried multiple different apps to try to learn Russian and this one worked really well! I have to say that the subscription was over priced and only purchased once. Lowering the prices for the one month to like 8 dollars would be great.
  • Fraudulent

    By Gblb10
    Tried several lessons in different languages and purchased. One is directed to also look at their website for discounts not offered through the App Store. One is given a discount code and directed back to the App Store to purchase. However when doing this one doesn’t get to select the language, the app chose the last language trialed, and discount code was not applied. Immediately canceled the subscription upon realizing the app chose the last language trialed but could not obtain a refund. Contacted Babbel support and was told they have no control over the app on the App Store and they couldn’t change the language nor refund the purchase; but one could buy another package through links provided via email to their website and buy the correct language or multiple languages for a year. So you’re paying twice for something one has already paid for. In response to Babbel asked since they developed the app, how could they not have access to change the language or refund the purchase so one could buy the correct module one intended? Again they said they have no control over the app. How can this be since they developed the app for Apple and android use? In response told Babbel this was a fraudulent practice, they were double dipping and would report for fraudulent activities. Babbel then provided a link to iTunes support and filed a claim for a refund. Babbel not only denied the claim but also charged the account again for the purchase. Had to spend a lot of time on the phone with Apple support to get money refunded, figure out why was charged twice upon filing for cancellation and discussed Babbel’s responses via email. Apple confirmed Babbel developed the app, supports it and therefore has access to refund or change the language. Apple refunded both the purchases, the second without authorization. Very disappointing and not a reputable company after this experience. Although it seemed like a good app there is no reason to give a dishonest company money again. There are other apps out there to use.
  • Garbage, false advertising.

    By WarriorcatloverREADWARRIORS
    When I saw that I could learn French, my favorite language, I got the app immediately. The thing is, I’m a kid. My parents disabled my phone so that I can’t use in app purchases. The reason I bought this app was because the advertisement said learn languages for FREE! This is not free. Sure, it can teach you stuff, but I’m not paying 72.99 for a year’s worth of French that I can learn from my aunt.
