  • A good tool but needs some work

    I like the Babbel system for teaching language. However, I think the web-based site is much superior to the app. I do not like that I cannot go back and hear the native speakers more than once on the app (you can on the web-based site). I do not like (and this is true of the web-based site, too) that if you don’t pronounce the way the program thinks you should, you know you didn’t do it right but you don’t know what you did wrong. In fairness, I have tried other web-based language learning systems, and I haven’t found one that does any better than Babbel at this point, but still, it is something the Babbel designers could work on. On a more positive note, Babbel does give realistic conversations to practice with, and that helps remember the words. All in all, this is a great way to learn a language (French, in my case). I just hope the developers keep working to make it even better.
  • Looks good, costs quickly

    There’s only one lesson (after you create an account via your email) that is free. It’s easy to learn and plenty repetitive to retain the information but in order to continue it’s a monthly cost. I don’t believe it’s enough to know if it’s worth the cost before paying monthly for it.
  • Instant feedback

    Nice learning tool that gives you a chance to get instant feedback on what you get right or wrong for each answer as you go. You get a chance to apply your learning immediately instead of at the end of the lesson when you may have applied it incorrectly the entire time without knowing. Each question and answer is repeated in audio so you are exposed to the spoken language. You are asked to answer some questions by spelling. The spelling prompts become harder as you advance.
  • Dishonest. Get started and then find out it’s expensive.

    I’m so sick of developers who conceal the cost and then admit a hefty monthly fee. Another reviewer wrote that there is a monthly fee if you want to study at a higher level. There is also a monthly fee if you want to study at the beginning level. Plus they talk too fast and audibly demonstrate too little. Bye-bye, Babbel.
  • How do you say “crash” in French?

    I have an iPhone X and the app crashes after answering first question.

    Like the app. Feel like I have learned a lot having never before studied French. However, there could be improvements. Too strict on misspelling, can't go back to hear where you went wrong as well as see it, if you want to do that. And sound recognition needs to be less rigid. Also, it would be nice to be able to slow down the spoken word or sentences, just to be able to catch it better, as it may happen in a classroom setting.

    I subscribed to you last year for a six month term and every time I wanted to advance it said I wasn’t subscribed? I emailed you a couple of times and mentioned that my bank acct was charged and wasn’t getting the service. I had issues with my computer as well and to find out this year you charged my bank acct! I don’t know why? I disputed this and it isn’t fair. You took away my motivation to continue with you. That is it! Thank you
