Cloudswave Score for +Babbel

I wholeheartedly recommend Babbel. It is a very well put together language program that helped me see a noticeable improvement in my German. I wouldn’t rely on Babbel alone for your language studying, but instead I think it could be a valuable part of a balanced language routine.

For an inexpensive and little-known language-learning program, Babbel exceeds expectations, delivering high quality courses for anyone who doesn't mind an online-only program.
I've been exploring Babbel's courses for a few weeks, focusing on German but dabbling in Spanish and Italian a bit to get a sense of how much different courses vary. Considering I had never heard of Babbel before I started testing it, I approached the online language-learning program with more than an ounce of skepticism regarding quality of the content. Boy was I in for a pleasant surprise.

A favorite of on-the-go language learners. Babbel's web-only option and impressive apps make it an ideal choice for mobile users. While Babbel's content can't compete with heavyweights like Rosetta Stone or Tell Me More, reviewers and users say its interactive online lessons, excellent app, speech recognition and vocabulary lists make learning a foreign language both fun and achievable, without breaking the bank. Babbel offers full courses in seven languages and vocabulary-only courses in four languages. One cautionary note for Swedish students, however: many native speakers on message boards complain that some of the terms aren't accurate.

Babbel is ideal for anyone that wants to learn a new language in a fun and exciting way, sitting down in a classroom isn’t for everyone and this might be just what you need to pick up that new language.

The app is also refreshingly clean and simple to look at, so there’s very little to distract you from the business of learning. However, you may find it a bit dry, which, let’s face it, may be an issue, particularly if you have bad memories of language class from your school days. A Wi-Fi or mobile data connection is needed to upload your data, by the way.

When looking at both sites, I really like the look and feel of Babbel, but I don’t like the cost and I don’t like the lack of languages I want to learn.
From T3 App Chart
Overall, it’s a decent app which could do with a lick of polish, but for learning on the go or dipping into abroad, the portability of an iPhone app versus the lugging around of a laptop will probably clinch it for folks who like to travel light.
David McKinnon, on Expert Reviews
Leaning a new language is never easy but Babbel makes the process convenient and fun. While beginners and those who need to brush up will undoubtedly gain more from the service than those closer to fluency, Babbel is an ideal and affordable way to fit learning a language into your everyday life.
