Babbel was the world’s first language-learning app and is also the best-selling. Its intuitive lessons, which have led to over 10 million subscriptions being sold, center on learning a language through real-life conversations.
The Babbel method uses the empirically-proven techniques created by curriculum experts. They’ve created 13,000 hours of content and more than 50,000 lessons across 14 languages.
Babbel builds new language grammar and vocabulary on the foundation of the language you already know. In fact, no two Babbel courses are the same. They are all unique, taking into account the similarities and differences between “language pairs” – your native language and the one you are learning.
The Babbel method trains your brain to learn constantly. It takes as few as 10 minutes a day, and you can continue to learn outside of the app “hands-free” through their 20+ podcasts. Babbel also utilizes audio dialogue examples recorded with native speakers, so the language you learn is more accurate and at times, even colloquial.
In addition to speaking and reading your new language, you’ll also learn about that language’s history, discover recipes, songs, and even meet new people along the way. Babbel’s app uses a subscription-based model, because they want to work directly with each language learner — without interruption by a third party. Ads are distracting, and working on a subscription model means learning in a more focused and effective way. When learners win, Babbel wins.
