Not worth it Makes you download the courses. Only offers a couple courses then you have to pay. Version 1.0 "learn Swedish with babbel" was SIGNIFICANTLY better, i wish i could get that version... Duolingo app is better.
Babbel Swedish Effective for learning Swedish. Two concerns: character set doesn't include special letters with diacritical marks and accents and pronounciation are inconsistent.
Scam They let you take one course then charge you for the rest. Total bullshit. The first course is only six parts.
The old way is better. The english phrase followed by the swedish phrase . Repeated 3 times. Then the next set. One hour cd pack with as many phrases as possible. That was a better system in the 70's. This new method just doesn't sink in.
Great Really good. A bit expensive but nice app.
One star left out If only babbel was free, its so good. The only way they give you anything free is 3 free months and its not free unless you pay 28 dollars or something like that which *cough cough* isn't very good advertisement because they said you get three free months of babbel but then says that you have to pay for a certain amount of the to get the free months. I dont have the money to actually pay for this but ts much better than any other site I've been on. Just consider making the three free months actually free.
