Babbel’s language learning app ends 2020 with a real blast – 10 million people are learning with Babbel! Four reasons why over 10 million people choose Babbel to meet their language learning needs.
Finally some good news this year: The Babbel language learning app ends 2020 with a real blast – 10 million people are learning with Babbel!
Despite travel restrictions and social distancing, Babbel users’ desire to connect with others through language learning is stronger than ever. In fact, the number of completed lessons in our app has doubled since March 2020! We also observe that our learners study with the Babbel app for an average of more than 18 months.
And nothing can stop them! Four reasons why over 10 million people choose Babbel to meet their language learning needs.
1- The short lessons fit perfectly into any daily routine
At Babbel, we do everything we can to make language learning an easy-to-set habit. Time is often short on a working day from the home office, which is why many learners struggle to integrate language learning into their busy everyday work. The good news is that with our short lessons, Babbel users can learn exactly when it suits them best, be it over coffee in the morning or during a much-needed zoom break.
Babbel’s scientific approach is based on the psychological principle of “bit by bit learning”. Since our brain can only process a limited amount of new information at one time, we keep our lessons short and get to the heart of the most important things. In just 15 minutes of learning a day, Babbel users receive small, consecutive “information portions” to ensure that what they have learned is stored in long-term memory. Thanks to the Babbel method, you can learn a new language faster than in an average language course at university, without having to compromise on quality.
2- Relevant learning content for all needs
At Babbel we know that the reasons for learning a language are as varied as our users themselves. Whether your goal is to state “fluent French” on your résumé or to communicate with your Spanish-speaking in-laws, we have the lessons for you you.
Before the course begins, users have the opportunity to take a placement test based on levels A1 to C1 of the GER. The Babbel app then allows learners to build their learning path based on their areas of interest, from travel to international cuisine to interpersonal relationships. This way, learning is always exciting and never boring. You can even learn how to write a cover letter in your new language or start a phone call. And our business courses will help you take your language skills that are relevant to your job to a new level.
3- Pronounce Words like a native speaker
A central aspect of language learning is getting the pronunciation right. Fortunately, the Babbel app puts its focus on pronunciation and integrates it into every step of the learning process.

The Babbel app has automatic speech recognition that allows you to synchronize your pronunciation with that of a native speaker. This feature lets you hear real native speakers pronounce a word before you try it yourself (and get it right the first time). This will help you get used to saying your new language out loud right from the start: We surveyed our learners and found that 73% of them felt they were able to have a conversation after five hours of learning with the app.
4- Practice with our scientific approach
The integrated vocabulary trainer from Babbel trains your language skills by repeating what you have learned regularly and in small portions. The method is simple: if you have learned something new, it will be shown to you again and again in the vocabulary trainer until you have mastered it correctly. Older words are also taken into account and shown to you before you forget them. The Babbel app also offers you listening, speaking and writing exercises to repeat what you have learned so that you do not get bored of learning with index cards. This is a simple, time-efficient method to train your brain and improve your memory, so that you can anchor new knowledge in your long-term memory both when you first learn and in the further learning process.
