I am a paid subscriber - I have been enjoying the app and one of the best bits is the vocabulary review. This allows you to build up vocabulary and it reprompts you to practice - however I have put several hours into Turkish courses only for it to wipe my vocabulary - the app knows I've completed 20+ courses but vocabulary manager now says I have only 10 words in vocabulary when yesterday I had 100+. Seems like a poor bug for a paid for app.
This application is fantastic! It is the perfect tool to learn French, and I'm sure the other languages are just as comprehensive! With Babbel, you can learn at your own pace, so it is great for anyone, busy or otherwise!
Good but need to pay for access to part 2! Not paying caz what's the point! I can find another way to learn other languages because there are probably other things out there to help you learn the languages!
I'm already fluent in five languages, I'm 45 and did it "old school", but I always had a hard time with Russian until I started this a few months ago and I LOVE IT! I like how absolutely everything is in the Cyrillic alphabet because you pick it up so much faster with this app. I can't recommend this app enough!
So far it's been a great app to learn the basics of a new language. Although I did switch phone and I can't seem to find a way to transfer my progress to a new device. So taking a star off because of that.
You learn a lot. Downside is you can't adjust the font size and some of it is too small or too faint to see particularly in low light. The microphone appears odd at times. Sometimes it will keep flashing red meaning wrong pronunciation of the most basic words you know you are pronouncing correctly. It even flashed red for a native German speaker I asked to try. Other times it works fine. I'd still recommend it though.
This is going to blow your mind…
