Learning with Babbel

Whether you’re learning a new language for travel, for love, or just an interest in a foreign culture, Babbel is designed to get you conversational in no time.

The Babbel courses

Babbel makes language learning easy, effective and convenient for everyone. With our courses, you’ll learn by doing and progress fast. The course material is broken into small blocks that are useful in everyday life: grammar and vocabulary practice are built into units that focus on practical things like getting to know someone, ordering food in a restaurant, shopping, or sightseeing.

Babbel’s courses are in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and supported by millions of happy users.

Babbel method

At Babbel, we’re proud to offer courses created by humans, for humans. Each one is designed by a professional team of linguists and language teachers, and tailored to each language combination. This is important: an English speaker, for example, learns French very differently from the way an Italian speaker does. We apply this approach to each part of communication: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Babbel listens to you speak and helps you perfect your pronunciation. And our data-driven Review Manager adapts to your personal progress so you can revise the concepts you find most tricky.

Proper communication

We understand that a language is more than an academic subject – it gives you access to another world. Get a real sense for another language and start using it immediately!

Easy learning

Available on the web, smartphone, tablet and Apple Watch, Babbel fits seamlessly into your everyday life. It doesn’t matter where you are and you don’t need hours a day: if you’ve got a few minutes to spare, you can learn a language. In fact, that’s the best way to learn – just ten or fifteen minutes each day. And when you’re done, we’ll save your progress in the cloud and sync it across all of your devices so you can easily pick up where you left off.
