    The first few lessons have been very informative. I’ve already picked up more now than I have in two semesters of Spanish in school.

  • Great app with lacking social features

    By Dustin C.M.
    I had to deduct a star because I’m not a fan of how their community is setup. For instance, if you want to learn Chinese, you have to slowly add friends, and most don’t accept. Also, be prepared for their app to essentially use you for corrections. It wouldn’t be so bad if you wanted to help learners who’re native to the language you’re learning, but you will have to help anyone with English (for example) across the world. If this app were setup to have a community similar to HelloTalk, I think the social aspect would be much better. Otherwise, it feels all too boxed-in. It also wants me to submit (required) correction requests. However, it’s not even needed most times. The app can tell if I’ve typed or spoke something correctly. I feel like the social features were not thought out very well. There’s no point in wasting people’s time with random and unnecessary correction requests. I already pay for the app. Please don’t require me to help people or submit requests. Also, if you unsubscribe from email notifications, it unsubscribes from everything and I don’t understand why. Certain usability features within test taking and learning could be better. On a side note, it’s still probably one of the better apps to learn a second language. I only wish they’d improve or get rid of the community altogether because it’s a bit inconvenient.
  • Best Learning App Ever

    By Angelic Killer ++
    Although the amount of languages you can learn are limited and you must pay to get full lessons, I really feel like I am learning. In fact, I have learned more French in one week than I have in my entire life thanks to this app. Love it 💖
  • Very good

    By Ayo$
    It will be perfect if they pronounce all choices for questions “or only the selected one”
  • Great app!

    Easy going and effective.
  • So far, it’s been incredible

    By some guy you should listen too
    I’ve been using quite a few apps like: Babbel, duolingo, drops, uTalk, fluent U, and mosalingua for the last year and a half to learn languages. Busuu is one of the more user friendly ones, making studying easy, while also teaching you the basics. I wish I could give it a 4.5 stars, as my only complaint is that the placement test doesn’t do a great job at determining what you know and what you don’t know. I was placed in intermediate level Spanish, but when I went back over the A2 lessons, there was a plethora of things I needed to learn, that I wouldn’t have if I had listened to the placement test blindly. Other than that, it’s been amazing, and I’ve paid for the year subscription.
  • I love it!

    By toothlessfanN1
    This is a great app I love it, there aren’t really any ads and the app is over all really great, you do have to pay to use a few parts of it but you don’t have to use those parts. I haven’t payed for anything on this app and it is really helping me to learn Chinese. I would definitely recommend this app 这是一个很棒的应用程序,我喜欢它,没有任何广告和应用程序都非常好,你必须支付使用它的一些部分,但你不必使用这些部分。 我没有在这个应用程序上支付任何费用,它真的帮助我学习中文。 我肯定会推荐这款应用。

    Great combination of all ways of learning
  • My first time

    By Kickassasian
    I like it and it’s easy to me
  • Great app - uses multiple avenues to teach

    By mikeyg1229
    I like this app because here are many avenues in which it teaches the secondary language (Spanish for me). For example, it pounds the memorization items into your head separate from the conversational part of each unit/chapter. This helps me when learning a new language.
  • The only matter is that is paying

    By omg😂zsz
    Is a fun app
  • Çok iyi bir uygulama

    By Hacegaan
    Harika bir uygulama fakat dil bilgisi derslerine de ücretsiz ulaşma imkanımız olsa daha da faydalı olacaktır bizler için...
  • Fix a bug please and add more languages

    By YooooooMtbameduff
    I love how your app is and learning languages on there is helping me. But 1) I wish if you guys added more languages like korean and etc....2) Plus there’s a bug on this app when I login and at the bottom it says, “Review your words today” I click on it, review one, and a learn more/cancel option is there. When I pushed cancel it logs me out of the review and the same thing with the learn option. Don’t get me wrong your app is amazing and it’s effectively in learning a language but if you could fix these two problems, that would be amazing 😉 ♥︎
  • Superb

    By Salome Mach
    Enjoying the process of learning a language
  • Oof

    By Jscnakxuwbajwnsnx
    In my opinion, it would be a little easier on users if it was a one time payment with limited ads, instead of an expensive membership.
  • Free means promo upgrades

    By sbspan
    Could only complete 29% of lesson 2 unless I upgraded to take quizzes and do conversations. Constantly interrupted with ads to upgrade. Free is NOT worth the download. Deleted. The Response from developer was callous. They essentially wrote ‘we hope you pay us soon’. Down grading from 2 stars to one.
  • Purchases

    By Sans the Comic
    This app is pretty great for learning a language, free or paid. I do however think that this app should go lighter on pushing people to pay, and should have more lessons available without payment. I think the option for people to correct you should be free, because it is a very, VERY crucial part in learning. There should be new lessons designed for the paid subscriptions, and be exclusive to that. Whenever I am going through one of my lessons, I always reach a point where I cannot continue because I need to pay for it. Please hide the payment-exclusive levels, and add more free ones! If my review was hard to understand, take this out of it: More lessons for free Less advertising the subscriptions (If you want to make money from the people who use it free, maybe try ads, like duolingo does, but don't go to hard on them) Add levels for paid subscriptions (Still giving incentive to buy) I hope the team sees this! This is a great app that could use some work.
  • Too fast

    By ShadowDeathStrike
    I enjoyed the first couple Japanese lessons, then out of nowhere there were various words and grammar that was not taught, but expected you to know. It threw me off. It starts slow they teach you all the basics but after lesson 5 or so it’s gets too complicated and almost too overwhelming
