Sometimes the app asks if you want to correct your mistakes; sometimes it does not. On the course reviews it only let's you choose one of the 4 categories, then it I dictates completed. We really need to use all 4 for the review. Sometimes you can go back and choose a second, but not usually. If you need to review the previous screen, you cannot go back one screen. You have to redo the entire lesson. Needs more of the user speaker during the lesson for practice. It has a lot more listening and

Apparently only the first course is free. Duolingo, instead, is much better, as far as keeping me interested and presenting words and phrases in various formats. Babbel isn't that interesting, plus it's not free. Hmmm... In response to the developer comment, I'm not paying for an app that doesn't keep me interested! Make it into a game or something! Plus, it becomes dysfunctional when it's time to submit verbal answers. Your app has the qualifications of what a free app with ads would have!

Hi Teresa, Thanks for your review. Paid access covers the cost for many teams collaborating to offer you quality content to start building up confidence in your new language. Learning a new language is a subjective procedure. Got an idea for Babbel? We're always happy to receive your feedback.

There is truly very little German content, making the long subscriptions borderline fraudulent. The more advanced lessons are shorter and of lower quality, both the recordings and the exercises. The app has no dark mode, so it’s not so pleasant to use at night. Overall, I recommend against this app. It's better than Duolingo and even a bit better than Busuu, but I still think most people would learn faster elsewhere. Again, I strongly advise against long subscriptions.
