Imitation is said to be the most sincere form of flattery, but is there anything more sincere than recommending a language-learning app to a friend?
Whatever the case, 90 percent of Babbel U.S. subscribers who participated in a November 2017 survey said they’d recommend Babbel to a friend.
That’s a pretty loud, ringing endorsement, if you ask us. You can see for yourself with a free Babbel lesson, or read on to learn more about the features that separate Babbel from other leading language-learning apps — and make a world of difference to our users.
Among those who responded to the survey, 86 percent said they had success learning a new language with our app over other methods. That’s partially because our courses are designed to help you retain what you learned — long after you close our app. Regular review sessions reintroduce information to you in strategically spaced intervals in order to reinforce what you’ve learned by bringing it back in new contexts.
“Babbel was the perfect solution. I did three lessons the first night, and already felt so much more confident with the language.” — Gabrielle Salinger
This isn’t to suggest that learning a language won’t challenge or stretch you in ways you didn’t think possible. But 86 percent of people said Babbel made language learning easy for them. Perhaps it’s because you can take language learning with you on the go, or perhaps it’s because of our user-friendly experience. Maybe it’s because interactive dialogues are more fun than trying to commit a textbook to memory. You be the judge!
“Trying to learn another language, I was intimidated, until I tried Babbel. It was straightforward, simple to use, and fun to learn.” — James Jackson
It Suits Your Busy Lifestyle
Each of our lessons only take 10 to 15 minutes to complete, which makes it possible to squeeze in study breaks throughout the day. Really, all it takes is a small daily time commitment and a bit of consistency, and you’ll be surprised how much you learn in a short amount of time. With Babbel, you can learn basic conversation skills in your new language in just 15 hours!
“My wife, who I love dearly, said, ‘There’s no way you’re ever going to learn a language.’ Now, I’m speaking the language. There you go.” — Tom Brady
It Prepares You Well For Having Real Conversations
One of our core promises is that Babbel gets you speaking a new language with confidence, and that’s because our lessons are designed to teach you authentic conversation skills that you’ll actually use on your own. In fact, 86 percent of people were able to have real-life conversations in a new language with Babbel, and 88 percent of people surveyed said Babbel helps them speak a new language with confidence.
“One of my best friends over my entire life is a native Swedish speaker. I can speak to him on the phone, and drop little Swedish words in, and he’s so blown away that this app would teach me how to speak the way a Swede would, in a bar or a restaurant. He’s so impressed by the pronunciation, the inflection, the way I’m using the words.” — Scott Zweibel
There’s A Small Army Of Language Experts At Your Back
Babbel’s lessons were devised by more than 100 language experts, and they’re made to get you speaking like one. Not only do you learn natural-sounding expressions that are actually used in day-to-day life, but our pronunciation guides and speech-recognition software help keep your pronunciation on track. Indeed, 94 percent of people surveyed said Babbel helped them improve their pronunciation in a new language.
