Just like Duolingo, Babbel also lets users learn to understand a language by completing and repeating phrases. The app is free to download and has a monthly subscription cost beginning at $11.

Looks like Rosetta Stone is going to have some competition now. Do they also offer a digital version or is this only for mobile use? Either way sounds like a great idea.

Contrary to what you may hear from TV infomercials, learning a new language isn’t as simple as buying a CD or tape. Language is an art that requires participation- thankfully we now have phones, tablets, and even watches that provide the perfect medium for interactive language learning.

I must learn French for my new job and I will be putting my faith in this app. I have three months to pull this off. Everyone wish me luck!!

It's a nice contrast to the technique of, say, Rosetta Stone, which emphasizes total immersion much more than rote grammar." Babbel provides speech recognition, and each course is created by language experts. One month's worth of lessons is about $13 — a bargain compared to expensive tutors.

It really depends on how you learn whether this will be more effective than Rosetta Stone. They both have their upsides I think but Babbel is also a great app.

I have tried to learn so many languages and failed I might as well give this a try. Are there some people who just cannot learn another language? If so I think I am one of them.
