We don’t teach things like « three bears are eating spaghetti out of a boot », we want you to be able to talk about the things that you’re interested in. We really want you to have real-world knowledge that you can use when you speak the language. We’re a group of over 150 linguists and language experts and we’re responsible for creating high quality learning content. Babbel is designed with real-world conversations in mind, and for that reason our courses are voiced by native speakers. We think it’s really important for you to hear the language the way that it should be spoken. We want you to hear the right cadence, the right oral and to really get used to using this language like a native speaker. We think that it’s really important for you to get some practice speaking before you actually have to go out into the real world and use this language. Our speech recognition software is a key aspect of our application that gives you the opportunity to practice your oral and your emphasis to get you speaking confidently from day one. It’s better to learn a little bit regularly than to try binge learning. So, we designed our coursess to be about 15 minutes long, your short-term memory can really only hold about seven pieces of information at a time, so we really want to design our coursess in a way that you can learn more effectively. Babbel review manager is a really unique elements of our product and it’s something that really helps you to learn these words and phrases and get them into your long-term memory. These words and phrases get sent to the review manager which you can go to maybe the next day. And you’ll get an opportunity to see these words and phrases again to practice them. When you get the answers correct the system recognizes this and it increases the time between seeing it the next time, this is called spaced repetition and it’s a really great way to move these words and phrases from your short-term memory into your long-term memory. So, that you can use them later. Each of our coursess focuses on a communicative goal. We want you to go through this courses and have some kind of real-world skill. When you finish we want you to not only know the words and phrases that you’ll need to order a coffee or a piece of cake or something like that but also to understand what the person at the counter is going to say to you. We don’t teach things like « three bears are eating spaghetti out of a boot ». It’s just not useful, we really want you to have real-world knowledge that you can use when you speak the language. We tailor our courses to your native language, for example, let’s say you have an American person and a French person, they both want to learn Spanish, their courses are going to look a lot different. French and Spanish are both Romance languages, they have a lot of similarities whereas English and Spanish are quite different. We try to introduce grammar as naturally as possible, implicitly at first through dialogues and different exercises give learners and opportunity to try to figure it out on their own before we explain it explicitly later on. In the courses when they figure something out on their own they say « oh I get that and I haven’t even been taught it yet ». Babbel has been verified by multiple universities as being effective at getting you conversational. For instance the City University of New York did a study and showed that newbies learning Spanish who use Babbel for two months improved their level as much as if they had taken a semester of university level Spanish. One of our core values here at Babbel is diversity makes us stronger and you can see this represented in the fact that we have 600 employees from over 50 different nationalities. Diversity is also represented within our products not only in the written content but also in the images that you see. We want to represent people of all different backgrounds, ethnicities, ages, genders. We want to show the world the way that it really is and we think that we can do that in our product from a teacher’s perspective. It feels really great to be part of a team of knowledgeable passionate linguists and experts creating content empowering millions of people with the gift of a language.

I’m really glad that we’re reviewing this application because I think it’s a good one. It may not be as popular as Duolingo for example, but it’s still pretty well known. First big difference with DL is that Babbel works as a subscription method and do we think it’s worth the price? Sure, but we’ll get into that later. Right now it has 14 available languages and the courses are quite long. This application is a new learning application created in 2007 and has a desktop and a mobile version. At the moment it has over one million users and it’s steadily growing. And as I said before, it uses a subscription based method with (air whooshing). As I said before, it uses a subscription based method and these are the rates. It has newbie, intermediate and advanced levels. But I wouldn’t say you will end up with an advanced level after completing the course. A high end intermediate level seems more realistic, which is still pretty impressive. After that, it’s up to you to keep improving. Apart from good and extensive lexicon coursess. It covers grammar pretty good. It pinpoints the grammar rules and then give you a different exercises to practice them. The listening exercises are actually quite impressive in our opinion. The audio quality is pretty good and they do a good job at recreating different dialogues for everyday situations. Another thing we really enjoyed about it is their courses structures. They’re pretty well designed, making the learning curve very gradual. This is a big positive for us since it can be very frustrating when you get stuck while learning a language. The coursess are generally entertaining. It can get a bit repetitive after a while, but I think that’s pretty normal. In any case, the fact that they have different types of exercises makes it engaging without falling too much into monotony. One thing that definitely can be improved is their speech program to recognize. Don’t get us wrong. The idea is great. It’s a way of getting better with the wrong oral, but sometimes the program doesn’t detect the word that you’re trying to say and it can get very frustrating. Anyhow, let’s login so I can show you how the application works. So this is the home page. And yes, you can see it’s pretty self explanatory. The design is very simple. And you have a little calendar here. Then you have a review section up there. Your level. Then here you have languages. And yeah, let’s just jump into it. So here lets you choose if you want to use the speech program to recognize or without the speech program to recognize. I personally prefer writing it. I guess it’s easier to remember for me. And as we said before, the speech program to recognize is not super good. (lady speaking in French) So here you have four examples and it’s in the, we’re doing the French version, so it’s in French and then in English. So yeah, let’s just press continue. All right, now you have to put at each option with the French phrase. So for example, (Matt speaking in French). I’m looking for the San Michel Fountain. So you just click on the option. (lady speaking in French) And there you go. (Matt speaking in French) It’s between the museum and the cathedral. Then also the picture makes it easier. (lady speaking in French) (Matt speaking in French) It’s on the other side of the San or behind (murmurs). (lady speaking in French) (Matt speaking in French), excuse me sir. (lady speaking in French) So this is pretty easy. And let’s just continue. Now it’s when we write. And then as I always telling you, you can also do like the speech program to recognize one that you’ll just have to talk. This way it forces you to write, which I think it’s excellent. So yeah, let’s go for it. (lady speaking in French) (Matt speaking in French) (lady speaking in French) (Matt speaking in French) (lady speaking in French) I generally put the accents, but if you don’t put it, it still works. Oh, this is a listening exercise. This is one of the strengths of this application. So yeah, let’s just check it out. It’s very interesting because it uses the words that you just learned in the choose the option courses. (lady speaking French) (Ghostly Voice speaking French) (Matt speaking in French) I’m looking for the San Michel Fountain. (lady speaking in French) (Matt speaking in French) According to my map, it’s in the Latin quarter, in a square on the other side of the San or behind the San. So (murmurs). (lady speaking in French) (Ghostly Voice speaking French) (lady speaking in French) (Matt speaking in French) (lady speaking in French) (Ghostly Voice speaking in French) (lady speaking in French) (Matt speaking in French) (Ghostly Voice speaking in French) (lady speaking in French) So yeah, it’s pretty easy, but I don’t know. It’s a good courses. It’s good exercise to make it stick in your head. Oh so now it’s just time for a recap from the words you’ve just earned. Lets just do it really fast. (Matt speaking in French) (lady speaking in French) So that was pretty much it. As you can see, it’s very easy to use. We didn’t have as much grammar as another exercises. But there’s a bit of everything. And the fact that there’s so many listening exercises, it makes it very useful when, in the case you have to go to France and you have to use the language in a day to day situation. So with this you’ll be prepared for that. So yeah, as you can see it’s pretty easy to use. It’s very intuitive.

Let’s just jump into the pros and cons (upbeat music) Let’s just start with the pros. First of all, it’s very easy to use. Sometimes it takes a little while, to learn how to use any new application, but that doesn’t happen with this application because it’s very easy and intuitive. The coursess are short. We love that the coursess don’t take too much time. It makes it easier to organize your course and you can always fit an extra courses whenever you have time to kill. This helps a lot to remember the lexicon or the grammar rules. There will always be exercises to apply what you just learned. It also covers many areas. There’s a bit of everything. There’s a bit of lexicon, grammar, listening, writing, reading. So, I mean there’s always something new to do. The conversations coursess are very good. As I said before, it stands out for their conversational exercises. The audio quality is great and they have different dialogues for different situations, which is very useful. Oh, and then this is a pro for me, is the fact that you can always access their review exercises. Once you’ve finished the course and stop your subscription, you can always get into the application and do the review exercises, which I don’t know, it’s always good to jog your memory. I never know what to do with my hands. It’s kind of uncomfortable. I know how I can be more persuasive. Yeah, sorry (chuckles).

And now let’s jump into the cons. First is that you don’t have enough oral support. I mean they have a couple of coursess I guess. But you basically have to work it out with your hearing. And then as we said before, the speech recognition program doesn’t always detect what you’re saying and it can get a bit weird. I guess that can be improved. Then another thing is that, the review exercises are not very thorough. I mean, it works perfectly for lexicon that it doesn’t have much grammar support. So you’ll have your grammar exercises, but sometimes you need like the explanation to jog your memory a bit. And the third negative that we’ve found, is that it can get a bit monotonous. But I think that’s something that happens with almost every single language learning application. And in a way, it’s up to you to keep on going. And the thing is that with this application, at least it has different types of exercises and there’s a bit of variation. So that was it. It’s a useful platform. And as far as we know, they’re still improving their application every now and then. I guess it’s a good sign. They’re adapting to the times or whatever, but speaks very well of them.
