Forming a learning habit is a key part of achieving your language learning goals. Of course, that’s always easier said than done. Here’s our five-step guide on how to make the most of Babbel’s new features and build a language learning habit into your daily life.
1. Set A Learning Reminder
When starting a learning habit, it’s better to start small — plan for only 15 minutes of study at a time in the beginning. You can always slowly build up from there. Ideally, you should aim to practice learning your language every day, or at least at regular intervals. That’s why Babbel made learning reminders a key feature of our app.
Pick a time of day that works for you, whether that’s on your daily commute, your lunch break or during your nightly “me time.” Then set the number of days per week you want to be reminded, and leave the rest up to us. No more overbearing reminders that show up at the wrong time, and no more excuses for forgetting altogether.
2. Check Out Your New Home
We’ve upgraded your dashboard to help you build a powerful learning habit, and we’re excited to show you your new home: It now features a guided Learning Path to your next learning activity.
With the new Learning Path, you’ll never feel lost in course material because we guide you through lessons. You’ll be able to see the last lesson you completed, what’s coming next, upcoming reviews and motivational messages all in one place!
3. Track Your Weekly Learning Activity
Visualizing your progress is an easy way to stay motivated when building a language learning habit.
That’s why we’ve made progress tracking an integral part of learning with Babbel with the “My Activity” module. This way you can see your progression and examine your weekly activity for the course you’re studying. Plus, with the handy “Progress Bar” for our courses, Babbel highlights how much you’ve already done, so you can stay focused on reaching your goals.
Build a language habit with Babbel Live
One of the best ways to build a language habit is to speak it regularly. With Babbel Live, you can practice your conversation and pronunciation skills with up to six peers in live, online tutoring classes led by an expert teacher. Hundreds of classes are offered each week, so you can learn on your own schedule, too.
Building a language learning habit is not only fun, but a great way to stay on track. With our Learning Path, Learning Reminders, and new all-in-one-place dashboard, we take care of the details so you can stay focused on why you set out to learn a new language in the first place.
