How Babbel Live works

The best way to get conversational in your new language? Live, online classes. Find out how you’ll learn and how to get started!

Whether you’re a beginner or a language learning pro, chances are you’ll want to speak your new language in real life at some point, right? What if we told you you don’t need to wait for those opportunities to present themselves? Our live, online classes are the perfect setting for you to practice speaking. They’re all taught by certified and native-level language teachers in small groups of max. 6 students. The classes are structured to get you speaking naturally and engage in conversations about topics you’re interested in. You’ll quickly find yourself training your vocab, grammar and pronunciation but also picking up on useful everyday expressions.

So what’s the benefit over in-person tutoring? Well, for one, those can be very pricey and secondly: Do you really want to rush to a language school after a long, busy day? We’re guessing no. Babbel’s live, online classes are designed to fit into your schedule seamlessly. You can take one on your lunch break or with a cup of tea on the sofa after you’ve put the kids to bed – entirely up to you.

And on top of that, with a Babbel Live subscription, you’ll get free access to the Babbel App, meaning you can continue practicing whenever you have a spare few minutes.
