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
The price is fair and you do practice a lot of writing, useful grammar and many important vocabulary words. Nevertheless, the speech recognition is terrible, so it is not good to practice your pronunciation (Duolingo and Rosetta have much better speech recognition). Unfortunately, when I updated my smartphone (and Android OS) I could no longer log in via my Google account...
I'm leaning for Shritte A1 and this is the best mobile app that you can get if u want to get certified for officiall Goethe Institute courses in German. I also recommend this to everyone, couse Duolingo and such apps are really week compared to this app. Wish u great learning! :)
Truly helpful, one of the best way to learn any language. The design and structure of the courses is really great, and most importantly nice interference. Last but not least great customer care support from Babbel team.
