Babbel – Learn 14 languages

Price: Android - Free iPhone/iPad - Free

Teacher Overview

Babbel is a language app that promises to help users expand their linguistic horizons by learning up to 14 different languages. Available on the web, iOS, and Android, the app provides digestible lessons that you can fit into even the busiest of schedules.

Teacher Review

Lessons are divided into real-world topics — you’ll learn how to introduce yourself, order food, and make travel arrangements, so that each word and phrase you use can serve a logistical purpose. This, Babbel says, is to ensure that students can start having real, meaningful conversations as soon as possible.
More than 100 linguists and education experts developed a methodical approach to language, building upon what students already know within their own language in order to teach them a new one.
In a survey of its users, Babbel found that 73 percent of customers said they’d feel comfortable holding a short conversation within five hours of using the app.

From the Developer

Speak the language like you’ve always wanted to.

You don’t sound like a robot when you speak in your mother tongue (no offence to real robots reading this), so why learn a new language only to talk like one? We want to get you confidently speaking a language like you’ve always wanted, not just memorising a list of vocabulary words or learning sentences you’ll never use.

Give us a go – your first lesson is free!


  • 14 languages available: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Polish, English, Indonesian, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian. Probably best you don’t try them all at once.
  • Made by humans – expert linguists are behind all of our courses. We keep them warm and well-fed.
  • Choose courses on topics you care about, and learn what matters to you.
  • 15 minute lessons (on average) – learn without upsetting your calendar (we know how sensitive it can be).
  • Progress is synced across all devices, and all content can be downloaded for offline use. So you can learn anytime and anywhere, except in your sleep (we’re still working on that technology).
  • Review Manager – helps you keep new vocabulary up there once you’ve learnt it.
  • Easy to use – simple and clear interface.
  • We’re also available on Apple Watch – another easy way to practice on the go.
