What's great about Babbel is its simplicity and flexibility. No matter where you are, how much time you have with you and on which device you want to learn; with the language learning app from Babbel, you can design your language course exactly the way you want it. The individual lessons are only a few minutes long and can therefore be completed in between lessons or on the go. If you have more time, you can complete several exercises at once, in which you can practise new vocabulary, match pictures and translations, fill in cloze texts and more.
Babbel works according to the pattern drill method, which always teaches you new vocabulary in the same way. The Babbel learning concept was developed by language teachers and scientists and aims to achieve quick learning results. Instead of scourging you with theoretical lessons and lengthy grammar exercises, the entertaining learning games are designed to enable you to have your first everyday conversations in the target language in a short time. The plan is for you to use the language you have learned; not to understand it from the ground up and down to the last nuance. Instead, new vocabulary is linked with pictures and sound so that you learn it quickly and keep it in your memory for a long time.
Babbel's online language course costs between around 6 and 10 euros per month, depending on which term you choose. Monthly subscriptions are more flexible but more expensive; annual subscriptions, on the other hand, are cheaper but have to be paid in advance and are automatically renewed without cancellation. Nice: If you log on in the browser, you can try out the first lessons of a language course for free; on mobile devices, on the other hand, you have access to a seven-day test phase with all course content.
