FAQ - General
The reference language you choose will be the language of the Babbel interface. All menus, instructions, explanations and translations will appear in that language.
If your native language is English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish or Swedish, just choose your native language. If your native language is not one of these, choose the language that you are most skilled in.
You can change your reference language at any time on the "Settings" page of your Babbel Profile. Don't forget to click on "Save" after you've made the change.
Once you have added a new language, switching is easy: just press the Switch button on the homepage.
