Babbel Spanish is primarily focused on helping you learn new words, improve your language grammar skills, and sentence structures.

Teacher Review

While not as much a household name as bigger brands like Rosetta Stone and Pimsleur, Babbel has carved out its own portion of the language learning market with over 1 million users.

In this article we're specifically looking at Babbel Spanish, and how the course can help the average Spanish learner. Babbel Spanish is a course which functions as an app. Also check out the best Spanish learning apps for a larger list.

The Babbel Spanish course is built around quiz styled lessons. Users are shown new material (grammar, vocabulary, etc), and then they are asked questions throughout the lesson to reinforce the new information.

Babbel Spanish works well as an introduction to a foreign language. Courses range from beginner level to intermediate, but less popular languages only have beginner material. The courses are straightforward and easy to use and can be a great addition to your language learning routine. 

Babbel Spanish's low price tag is also a plus. It's most expensive price point is $12.95 for a one month subscription, which is much less than higher end courses like Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone.

Babbel Spanish's shortcoming is that it doesn't prepare you very well for real life conversations. You simply aren't required to think of your own words or phrases, you usually pick an answer from a predetermined list. 

Still with it's functionality, effectiveness (especially at beginner levels), and low price Babbel stands as an appealing option in the world of language learning tools.

Babbel Spanish is one of the company's premiere language courses with hundreds of lessons. The course is ideal for beginners though some lower intermediate students may find it useful.

Description

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

Give us a go – your first lesson is free!
