It’s so effective, more than 10 million people have purchased subscriptions. Babbel students stick around with good reason: because Babbel works.

Here’s how:

1. We keep it real

Our lessons are grounded in real-world conversations. What that does is gets you speaking right away — all it takes is 10 minutes a day.

“We want you to be able to talk about the things you’re interested in.”

2. That’s what they said

The voices teaching you are those of native speakers, not machine-learning bots. And likewise, the conversations aren’t only lessons in pronunciation; they’re lessons in culture.

Authenticity is key to fully exploring a new place via a new language.

3. Learn it, review it, retain it

Babbel’s content utilizes proven cognitive techniques that move new vocabulary through your brain’s six memory stages, ultimately parking it in long-term memory.

We’ve introduced new games, podcasts, stories, and more, all designed to help you explore your chosen language.
