Learn English with Babbel Review

Babbel focuses more on helping English language learners acquire the basic conversational skills. During each lesson, lasting from 10 to 15 minutes, you will learn new words, hear a dialogue, have a grammar instruction and then review all that you have learned and memorized. Featuring a microphone technology, you can check if your pronunciation is correct; Babbel will correct you if you’re wrong. With a low price and truly useful content, Babbel is one of the best language-learning programs available.

With an intuitive software and extensive content, Babbel is also user-friendly, allowing you to use the app without an internet connection.

The app has four different approaches - Sound Recognition, Picture Recognition, Spelling and Fill in the blanks. Babbel definitely focuses on the quality of your learning rather than the quantity. Babbel also uses a custom goal system that allows users to set benchmarks as they learn a language and to monitor their progress as well. If your goal is to learn new vocabulary effectively, then Babbel is the app for you!

Whatever language(s) you speak fluently, there's always scope to learn a new one. While I personally recommend Duolingo, Lingopie, there are plenty of alternatives to Duolingo available.

Is the Babbel app worth it?

For its price, Babbel can definitely be worth it, depending on what language you’re learning. Each language course is created separately, so the quality and depth of the courses may vary.
