Frankly, I don't find it very helpful. The hurried grammar explanations and nebulous clues make it frustrating, even for review. I can't see how anyone actually learns anything permanent or useful. Disappointing and a waste of a premium subscription. Increasing my rating by one star for the great customer service.
The free lessons are minimal. With a subscription you get plenty but rather lengthy and cumbersome. Not many variations in answers are allowed, which is demotivating. At least it accepts missing accents. Also you have to learn the Spanish vosotros no matter you need it or not. However you can download as many lessons as you want to learn offline.
I was enjoying using the app and making progree. However, during the lesson if you take a break to make a note of a grammar point or vocab the app stalls and returns to the start. This INCREDIBLY frustrating and I would certainly exoect more from a service which charges, will not renew subscription and will choose another app in the future.
Got to start the course then after a couple of lessons it asks you to set up a payment plan. Not a very nice set up either. Exactly the same type of app as Duolingo which is much better. Nicer set up and all the courses are FREE! Will be uninstalling and sticking with Duolingo. Disappointing.
The best language app I have tried. I was never good at languages at school but after a couple of months of using Babbel I'm actually making progress with my Spanish. I love how the different verb forms are explained and all the tips on pronounsiation.
I love the grammar explanations it really helps you understand how the language works and that is the best way to learn! I never understood why we say buenos dias so I sometimes said buenas dias....babel taught me that dia is male despite the "a" ending!
