Great app, nice to learn a foreign language. Lots of repetition of crucial words and listening to pronunciation. Also speaking exercises, only sometimes I feel like that I say it correctly but the app doesn't agree 😅 two things though, I have found two typo's in the exercises and of one of them I made a screen shot. But I cannot find the place where I can feed this back. Secondly, I'm not a huge fan of the keyboard. It's slow and rough to handle, maybe you could give that an update
Brilliant app! The lessons are very simple and easy to learn from. I like how you can go over your mistakes and the end of each one and even repeat the whole thing at any time. I got through my first lesson and was very sad to discover I had to pay to go any further, because I thought the app was fantasic and wanted to learn everything I could from it. I like how I can still do the first lesson of every course, but just a shame that is all I can get from this great app. An improvement I would like to offer is being able to pause at any stage in a lesson, and look over what you just listened to, or typed etc. to make sure you understand it. I sometimes feel the app rushes on without you, not giving you much time to absorb the information. Other than that, wonderful job!!
Love Babbel. So easy to follow and a variety of written, spoken, listening exercises. I have the chance to review mistakes and repeat exercises too so I get the sense of making real progress. The only thing i would add is the ability to create electronic notes for use when travelling or for revision, practice etc' x
I just signed up for an annual subscription to start learning French and even within the first few days of using the website and the android app I've made a lot more progress than during my prior attempts to learn the language! I like how organic the revisions and repetition is worked into the excercises so it doesn't get boring. The only thing I would change about the app is to make it possible to just do excercises without downloading them first because I'm always concerned about memory space. It would also be cool to be able to export my vocabulary into apps like quizlet! 5/5 stars, I'll definitely recommend Babbel to my friends!
Voice recognition needs real silence in the background to work, which is inconvenient and not conducive to doing lessons in many circumstances. It's also less than ideal that you can't learn or use accents as there's no way to write them on the UI - it's an essential component of language learning. Apart from that, I like it! I get more from it than the other free apps and wouldn't be without it.
It is good for learning. However, the voice section is too stickler and will always keep me there for over half an hour. The amount of time I also have to say the thing is said both too quick, and have less time to say it clearly enough to translate. It should be more friendly to people with autism, and with hearing problems in the way we can all enjoy and learn a new language. Hope to hear back about this.
Hugs, not bugs.
That’s what we’d prefer. Unfortunately, bugs happen. So, in those rare moments we’re not enjoying the warm embrace of a hug, we’re working hard to fix what needs to be fixed to improve your learning experience.
