Conversations start here

Founded in 2007, today Babbel is the top-grossing language learning app. It was the first app of its kind and now has over 1 million active subscribers. Fast Company Magazine ranked Babbel as the world’s #1 most innovative company in education.

Meticulously designed courses guarantee to teach you language skills that are useful from the start. 73% of users indicated that they’d be able to have a short, simple conversation in their new language within five hours of using Babbel.

Designed for your success

At the core of Babbel is a world-class, empirically-proven method that enhances language learning with advanced technology. Our language experts obsess over how to bring you the best quality in modern language learning, covering 8,500 hours of content in 14 languages, from Spanish to Indonesian.

Learn the way you should

Babbel is the only product to offer courses tailored to your native language, building on grammar and vocabulary you already know. Audio examples and dialogues are recorded with real native speakers, not automated computers, empowering you to speak correctly and confidently. Time-tested strategies, such as cognitive research and communicative didactics, optimize how new vocabulary and grammar is received, saved and recalled. Babbel trains your brain to learn constantly and efficiently, so you absorb more information while in the app and continue learning outside of it.

What you see is what you get

Babbel is a premium product, and our iOS and Android apps make our practical language lessons available wherever and whenever. With no ads and a transparent, subscription-based business model, we work directly for our learners — not for any third party. And it’s all supported by a fast and dedicated customer service team, available via telephone, email and online chat.
