  • Not ready to converse

    By bartbark
    I’m about 11 lessons in so far. I can ask how you are and where you’re from.. Not sure what I was expecting but I sure need to do a lot more to be able to use this. On the more positive side, It’s good to be learning spelling and grammar as well as phrases. Conjugating verbs isn’t helping me use them, though.
  • I’m sorry what

    By Sydstr1
    So, I know passable french, but I wanted to improve more. I thought to myself “oh every ad is pretty much Babbel and I have nothing to lose” so I downloaded the app. I was so excited to learn more french. I opened the app, filled out the beginning question and was presented with a challenge “beginner or advanced”. Now, I know I went to france and did a decent job of understanding and speaking so how hard could it be? Well, I chose advanced. The first question- my mind finds the answer to “what time is it” a phrase I leaned 4 years ago. Perhaps it’s just getting a feel for where I am... I click the right answer. It repeats the phrase in french. This is it, I think, I’m finally going to get another question and go back to learning! So I wait for it to load... and I wait... and I wait some more. Maybe it froze? I closed the app and opened it back up. I went back through the same survey thing and finally back to the question. I have this one under control now. I click the right answer. It doesn’t repeat the phrase. Okay, weird. I go to my home screen, open another app, and come back. I try the question again. It took half an hour and I’m on good wifi and service this is an issue with the app I couldn’t do anything why the hell did I think it would work? Everyone else said you get 6 free words but hey at least you got words all I got was a haunting reminder of the passage of time

    After a few sample lessons, I was impressed. After my partner paid for the 6 month Spanish subscription and dove into further lessons, I was less impressed. I love the vast array of topics covered but don’t like the open-response questions where multiple answers are appropriate but only one is accepted (ex. Using “Somos” or “nos llamamos” for “_________ Adrian y Sofia,” and only “somos” is accepted.) It makes it difficult to know if one is understanding the intended concepts or if we are just learning to beat the “game” so that we may continue to progress in order. Developers should revisit these sections and either a. Make the intended response more clear based on given context or B. Make multiple appropriate responses acceptable.

    When I can get on I love it. Have been able to get through the first lesson and can’t seem to get to the next ?!?!?!
  • Not so great for practical Spanish

    By The Profeasor
    It is a good idea but the execution is pretty bad. It focuses too much on grammar to an extent it makes you feel like you’re in school. Especially the format where it first makes you listen, then do a match and then write the same sentences, is an overkill and after a point it just gets irritating. If I’d just want to learn Spanish so I can converse it is not a good app. I like the interaction, the feel and the way it lets you choose the course but there is a lot of room to improve.
  • Great Idea, needs work and revision.

    By Erohs1
    As someone who used to speak German years ago, I tried this out in advanced mode to see if it would work. For most of the “fill in the blanks” answers that were supposed to give the user shuffled letters, it gave instead the words spelled out correctly. Did not help me one bit. Needs an update!
  • I’ve tried them all

    By Rev doc rob
    I have a Ph.D in Instructional Technology. I’ve used Fluenz, Rosetta, and others to study Italian, French, and now Portuguese. In my personal and professional opinion, Babbel is by far the best.
  • Enjoy the learning but system is unstable

    Not always smooth sailing.
