The lessons progress very rapidly with very little work on vocabulary or re-using learned vocabulary in new and novel ways. The speech recognition doesn't provide any feedback about what you are pronouncing incorrectly or offer suggestions on how to correct it. The grammar lessons are useful but it would be nice to have reference access to allow review. The review phrases are mostly random stuff that beginners wouldn't use.

Structured in a way that you can really see the progress. Not gamified. UPDATE: Taking a couple stars away. This new interface is not my favorite. Specifically, Babbel dropping the review number that would pop up every day. Sounds dumb, but it was another way to keep motivated. Also, worse yet, microphone now takes FOREVER to register and allow you to use it. Activities and reviews take three times as long now. Update 2: app is back and mostly working as well as it used to.

I absolutely could not learn using audio tapes in the past. Nothing stuck. Nothing. Babbel uses the tri-modal approach, best for almost all types of learners. I also augment my experience by adding a notebook where I write a lot of what I'm learning down. At 74, I didn't believe I could learn a new language, but I'm retaining so much. Two thumbs up!
