5 Ways Babbel Makes Language Learning More Fun

1. It encourages you to play games

Babbel’s Games feature helps you build your vocab and test your spelling by raising the stakes a little — that is, by making you use your skills to appease ghosts in a labyrinth, or avoid sinking a boat or derailing a train. If you’ve got a competitive streak, learning with games is probably your sweet spot.

2. It turns you into a cultural insider

Babbel doesn’t stop at merely teaching you the language. Through little context tips sprinkled throughout your lessons, as well as different courses you can pick from, like Countries & Traditions, you’ll also pick up useful tips and cultural knowledge to help you better understand the people behind the words you’re learning.

3. It lets you learn in a social setting

Remember real-live language classes? Sometimes, you just want to ask a real teacher questions (or feel less alone in your studies). Now, you can also sign up for Babbel Live to be able to pop into engaging, live online classes with some of the best teachers we could find — whenever you want. You’ll learn in small groups (6 people max) with certified language teachers who we handpicked because of their expertise, talent, and ability to inspire their students.

4. It lets you choose your adventure

Aside from meeting you where you are regardless of what level you’re at, Babbel’s lessons are also designed to let you chart your own course a bit by tailoring your learning to the topics you’re interested in. You can mix it up with fun Words & Sentences exercises, or take a few of our Special Courses, which deal with topics ranging from sports to travel, vacations, festivals, tongue twisters, idioms and more.

5. It feeds your video and podcast habit

You can also watch videos and listen to podcasts on the Babbel app, all of which are created with the same expert care as Babbel’s core lesson plan. With videos, you can find out why Spanish sounds so different in various parts of the world and learn various ways to say hello in engaging, easily digestible videos. Meanwhile, there are over 50 hours of podcast content (recorded in both monolingual and bilingual formats, depending on your learning level) that cover a full range of topics in various formats, including talk shows and stories.
