It's an expensive dualingo app. It advertises a lot of features that aren't there. Pinsluer is way better. The refund policy is also no existent. Don't waste your money. I'm super disappointed in the Spanish lessons and the "podcats" is one episode of some lady who thought it would be fun to learn French. Add: I wish I could go lower after that response. I have emailed and you never get back to it.

I have mixed feelings about Babbel. I like the way that they teach words in a dialogue context so that they are more usable, but I hate that the speech feature is very inconsistent. When I pronounce a sentence the same exact way, it is sometimes correct and other times incorrect. I wish that the speech feature gave feedback to let you know which part of the sentence you are missing and also how close you are in your attempt. I also wish that the app had more languages like Chinese, Korean, etc.

Terrible app. Voice recognition hardly works, which I tested with my native speaking friends so I know it's not just me. It doesn't matter how many times you set up reminder notifications, they'll just stop sending them after a couple days so they can take your money without actually providing a service. Also, lessons are generated by AI, by the app's own admission. It's incredibly unreliable AI.
