Learning with Babbel

Whether you are a complete beginner or want to improve, Babbel is for any language level.

The Babbel courses

Babbel offers thousands of hours of interactive courses that are fun and effective. Put your new language in context and stay actively engaged with relevant scenarios – from travel to work to hobbies to social situations. Our course objectives are based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages.

The Babbel method

Babbel gives you everything you need to speak, write, and understand a new language. Each lesson only takes a few minutes and strengthens your language skills according to themes and topics that you choose. Babbel listens to you speak and helps correct your pronunciation, and the Review Manager makes sure that everything you learn sticks in your memory.

Proper communication

Our courses are developed by linguists, authors, native speakers, software developers and designers. We understand that a language is more than an academic subject – it’s a communication tool which gives you access to another world. Get a real sense for another language and start using it immediately.

Easy learning

With full-feature apps for iOS and Android, you can easily learn in your spare time – no matter where you are: do a lesson on the bus, after your lunch break, in the checkout line at the grocery store or while your tea is brewing. Your progress is saved in the cloud and synced across all your devices so you can easily pick up where you left off.
