Great flow The best thing about Babbel is that it teaches you the chosen foreign language with a great conversational flow. That's what many other sources of language learning miss out on. I previously started out learning Dutch on Duolingo but even after nearly three weeks or a month I didn't feel confident enough to even start a conversation in Dutch. But from the very first day, Babbel has been good in that very aspect.
microphone noise canceling and word recognition needs improvement Doesn't handle background noise at all when learning to pronounce words. Could not get some words (like norwegian hadet) to verify as correct no matter how much i tried, frustrating. I would not subscribe until these issues are fixed. Besides that, it is a pretty nice program. Looking forward to next few updates.
Samsung Galaxy Edge 6+ Works great on phone & I'm really enjoying the learning. Voice recognition isn't as good as Duolingo - you need a perfectly quiet environment - but once it's quiet it works well. Learning is so much better & faster than with other apps. Just a shame it works so badly on PC. Through Chrome & Firefox you very regularly get a 'hang' which prevents you moving on in a lesson and you have to restart the lesson. 1 star down for that. 1 more star down for customer support ignoring my request for help with this.
Great app So far I have had a great time learning Spanish using this app. I have tried learning Spanish in the past but always gave up after 2 or 3 days. I am currently using two paid apps to learn and they both make it easy and fun to learn. My wife is Hispanic so after I get done with a few lessons she helps by quizzing me. She also goes through each lesson with me and answers any questions I may have. I also call my in laws and they help too. Great app. Highly recommended
Will not subscribe Until microphone issue is handled. I does not understand my accent which I know it spot on. After 4 years of studying Italian, I know how to pronounce Ciao!! :( Also why do you have to click on the NEXT button for everything? Rosetta Stone just goes on once you get the answer correct.
Great Product - Jeg kan godt lide at lære dansk med Babbel! I've been trying to learn Danish off and on for the past few years with not a lot of success. I used Rosetta Stone, and it was OK, but not great and I never really felt like I was learning what I needed to learn to converse. A few months ago I came upon Babbel and decided to give it a go and have been very happy with it so far. Here's why: 1. They have the language I want to learn. This might not seem like that big of a deal, but given that Danish is not the most popular language to learn, I was very plea
