Babble advertisement said try it for free, and you can. But to actually use it to learn a language you have to pay! Advertisement leads you to believe its free.
It's ok The mic recognition is awful. The other popular language apps have a much better voice recognition system. The lessons are insanely predictable. I'm extremely reluctant to buy anything as I haven't seen any real quality.
Meh mic It's a useful app...but the mic is awful. It's useless to have it on. I've tried adjusting it but still no success for me or my native speaking girlfriend.
Monthly Payments? Not for me. I am not willing to make monthly payments for ANY app, no matter how good, because it commits me to using the app on a frequent basis. If I go on holiday or I'm ill, the payment is wasted. Buy lessons, yes. Monthly payment, no.
I live in Spain and needed to learn Spanish very much indeed. I completed the whole of the Duolingo course, I spent hours and hours on it every day. When I finished it I found that it went nowhere further and I still could not speak Spanish. So I started on Babbel Spanish. The key to Spanish is verbs, they are very different from English verbs, a whole new world. Duolingo does not deal with verbs Babbel does and in a very well organised way. One month into Babbel and I have learned more solid Spanish than I did in 18 months with Duolingo. Babble is not a fun little phone game, its the real thing. Don't waste your time like I did or waste your money on Rosetta stone like my friend did. If you want to learn Spanish use Babbel and commit the effort and time you need to that.
Let Me Try For Free for a Month This app won't give you at least a free trial. I don't mind paying if it works. There are many language apps and software. If it is no good let me find out for free first. I'm deleting!
