    Sometimes it is unclear as to what is expected as a response.
  • Too much typing

    Most of my errors were typos that I didn’t catch from using app on phone with small keyboard. Voice recognition poor. Could never get passed red box to green. Otherwise really good content for learning. I think I benefit more from Duolingo.
  • Excellent Learning Process

    Step by step lessons that include real world context help make it real and conversational. Great product but the 28% price increase has given me pause.
  • Good program, but not Mexican Spanish

    I was very disappointed to discover that I was learning Spanish Spanish instead of Mexican Spanish. Apparently they are quite different as several people have now told me. It is also very hard to understand the male voice used in the app has trouble recognizing when I correctly repeat a word or phrase, so I have to repeat it multiple times to get the green highlight and advance.
  • Can’t unsubscribe!

    I actually thought the learning program was pretty good, at least for a beginner. But I hate it when companies inform you your subscription will be automatically renewed unless you cancel, then make it impossible to figure out how to cancel. Seems to me this is a close cousin of theft or credit-card fraud. I’m 36 hours into waiting for a response from support to tell me how to unsubscribe.
  • No Consistency From One Device To Another

    When I finish one course on one device and go to the app on another device, iPhone, iPad, iMac, the other devices usually does not show that I completed previous courses.
  • Castilian Spanish program

    2
    By KOvertoom
    This is a good program for writing and practicing Spanish at advanced levels. It also does a great job of explaining grammar. However, this is a Castilian Spanish course, not Latin American Spanish and there are differences in pronounciation, especially with “s” and “c” which are typically pronounced with a lisp. And the program does not do a good job training the ear by listening to long passages in Spanish at this point in time. They also don’t give good cues to let you know whether to use “tu” or “usted” or “vosotros” or “ustedes”, which means you have to memorize the sentence associated with the picture. Also, the pictures used are pretty crappy. I signed up for six months and would really like my money back. Duo Lingo is a much better program and you can get a free versions that has advertisements. I had several discussions with the support people at Babbel about a partial refund, but because I bought it through Apple, I needed to go through Apple to get the refund. I appreciate the effort they made to try and resolve the issue, but I am still not planning to use their product.

    I paid for a 1 month subscription 2 days ago. My app hasn’t been allowed access. I’ve sent 2 messages to customer service to no avail. I think I just got scammed from this app.
  • Worst app in the business

    The microphone settings are crude and impossible. Nice course but the speaking function does not work on pc or iPad. Very maddening. Cuts off before you get the chance to speak. Try elsewhere
  • Do not recomend

    The app has potential ,but, on the lessons where the keyboard pops up on the screen so you can type the answer- it blocks 50% of the screen so you can't see the question. Extremely frustrating. Babble does not provide any way to contact them to cancel subscription- none. Hence, they continue to charge me renewal fees through apple itunes. Currently disputing with my credit card. Not worth it.
