It seems to be overly common to compare Babbel against duolingo. Both are undoubtedly comparable services however, Babbel, for German, has offerred a more challenging and stimulating course than my learning experience with duolingo. While duolingo has the potential to offer deeper understanding once one explores the discussion forum, Babbel has the foresight and intuitive to incorporate the deeper semantic understanding of the studied language into the course. As otherwise, with duolingo you rely on both the community and the developers; with Babbel you only need to rely on the latter. The bottom line is Babbel requires subscription but I insist that the money is very well spent.
The best language learning This is absolutely the best app for learning German. I've tried many others and none come close. Some others even had terrible mistakes that even I as a novice noticed. This isn't cheap but the value is still second to none. Sure there are a few things that I'd like to improve, mainly in the UI, but as for learning German, this is fantastic, easy to navigate and works on older phones without problems. It's clearly made well by German native speakers and not some cheap hobbyists as I've seen witness elsewher
I am a novice and I liked the app very much. I am interested to learn German since my college days, I think it is one of good app which really can help. Together if u have Duolingo it will be more helpful.
This app wouldn't let me register, or load the app. It just hangs on the load screen with the loading bar at 1/3. I'm on an S8+. I will rate again if/when it's fixed.
Perhaps a bit pricey, but I prefer it to that other, more established language learning company / software.
Worth every penny, it's more challenging than Duolingo and incredibly in-depth, hands down my favorite experience learning a language.
