    If you use it regularly you will see a difference in your understanding and ability to speak basic Spanish
  • Speech recognition is not good.

    Just starting, I have taken a few years of French classes years ago in high school. I have also worked with French people, and spent a few weeks in France last year. The apps speech recognition will not let me pass simple words I know I pronounce well.
  • Good app but you can’t get rid of it

    I bought this for a month and have now paid 3 months and there is no end in sight. There is no way to cancel. Submitted multiple complaints to Apple and no response . It’s too bad because it was helpful
  • Spelling

    Not looking to spell. Waste time if I’m looking for conversational Italian.
  • Poor coaching for pronunciation

    When I started using the app I loved it! It’s got a variety of pronunciation, spelling and grammatical exercises. I am using Babbel to attempt to learn some conversational French for a trip to Paris in October- I’m not particularly focused on reading and writing French, but it is nice to see it as it certainly is not a phonetic language! As I am progressing I am becoming increasingly frustrated. The spoken examples are too fast and feel like a very random progression through the language. I feel like I went from basic French to here’s his sentence with only one word that you’ve heard before- better say it right! When your pronunciation is wrong there is no coaching- there is one recording that you can listen to on repeat and that is it. No sentences/statements are broken down into smaller sections, there are no recordings with an alternate voice, nothing. How am I supposed to pick up on the very subtle differences in sounds!? Or find where in the sentence specifically I am struggling. Learning a new language is a challenge- I’m prepared for that, but at this point I’m too frustrated to progress in the modules.
  • Typing it in

    I don’t want to learn how to type it and there should be a option just to speak it and not type it truly. I would like to get a refund.
  • Starts strong, loses relevance quickly.

    Going to Italy and was hoping to start with conversational phrases and tools (like numbers, asking how much items are, directions, etc.) The beginning is great- the perfect formal and casual sayings. But then quickly turn into present tense verbs and I prefer to learn the language as a ‘visitor’ and felt that driving purpose was missed in this app. Functionality of the app is well done- easy to use and provides many listening opportunities. Just wish there was a specific class for first timers to get by.
  • Why!!

    Nothing is ever free I’m a 13 year old kid and I just want to learn Spanish and I don’t have money but you’re free lesson was cool. I just feel like people should see that kids like to learn languages too.
  • Too much typing

    I was hoping to multi task with this app but 90% is focusing on correct Spanish spelling. I was wanting faster conversational Spanish...
  • Small selection

    Just stared using it, really disappointed no Japanese or Chinese. Make sure you read what languages before you purchase.
