Overall, one of the best language learning apps I've seen. The only major problem I have with it is the use of a custom keyboard instead of the system keyboard. There seems to be a tendency for it to drop keystrokes when typing quickly, and it wont allow you use any layouts other than the one for the app's display language (apparently it's inconceivable that you might wish to learn to type using a standard layout for the language you are learning).
Honestly, I was using Duolingo first. Duolingo was really amazing for learning primary Swedish but I felt I was learning nothing useful. "De fågel äten de spindel" isn't exactly a useful phrase to learn. But with Babbel, I'm learning how to have actual conversations between true people and feel myself retaining the info a LOT better. My mate gifted me 3 months and I intend on purchasing it for the 2020 year.
Giving 4 is being generous. Although the lessons are great, the best I have found, only the first lesson is free. I want they would do away with that and go the method of Duolingo and have all the lessons free, and only if you want, plus have ads to hold the application free. Please Babble, I love your app/lesson, and I learn the most and easiest from your apps. *Edit* I still am not changing my rating as nothing has changed.
While I really like the course and how it is structured, some design choices annoy me a lot and become more frustrating as I wish to be more efficient in learning: - you have to use the keyboard provided by Babbel , which is custom created and completely various from what I am used to or would like to use. - after answering, you have to listen to the full audio before proceeding to the next question. - the error checker is very rudimentary. 1 missing hero often makes the whole respond wrong.
really like the application and it's in depth approach. however, that the application only uses an English language keyboard as is base is very frustrating. I'm using the application for Swedish which frequently uses various vowels, the need to long press keys for proper letter several times in a single word, allow alone a sentence becomes irritating and tiresome very quickly.
