  • Too easy, too expensive

    By rachelatrandom
    I was able to complete the entire French language course in a few hours. I paid for the program mostly because it claimed “advanced” levels and I was looking for something more challenging than Duolingo, but there are no levels past “upper intermediate”. I did like the feature of being able to interact with native speakers, however. If you’re a true beginner this isn’t a bad program but I still doubt it’s worth the money. Duolingo has a very solid free version and is only $4/mo if you want to pay for their Plus version.
  • Love it

    By barron223
    Very nice to be able to do it at your pace and speak with their users who speak the language you wish to learn. And be able to go back and review on your own terms
  • Going good

    Like learning any language, you will only get out as much knowledge equal to the level of effort you put in. However, this app make it easier to want to want to put in the effort.
  • Perfect App for teaching

  • Best Language App!!

    By kk0085
    This is such an effective way to learn a new language! I’ve tried other apps like duolingo, but the features on Busuu are a complete game changer. It gives you a projected target date for fluency, and will provide many different activities so you can learn a new language effectively. There’s even a feature where you can meet people from other countries, and converse with them! If you give it a try, you will not regret it.

    It is very useful apps
  • Wow

    By isabellagcs
    Honestly, I don’t know why language learner aren’t talking about this app. It’s so good. My only complaint is that it is kind of annoying how it says the lesson isn’t complete when I’ve only done the free stuff. But other than that, great app.
  • Subscriptions

    By TwistedGates
    Found out that my subscription went from 9.99 a month to endeding up at 79.99 for a year. I didn't agree to that. Canceled my subscription. I agreed to the 9.99 not the 79.99. Kinda upset about that.

    I’m currently learning German and French and I found this app so helpful. I bought VIP and it’s definitely worthy. There are native speakers in the community who can help with your learning and the learning procedure is very organized.

  • Best App

    This Is Amazing Thanks All of them
  • Worth the $12 a month

    By Commander927
    Totally worth the $12 a month. I love how your app goes even further than Duolingo in showing how the words are conjugated. Your app just goes into more depth with explanation. The only thing I would ask is that you allow us to click on any word in the text and have the app read the word to us. Other than that, great app.
  • This is great I’ve learned many words konnichiwa watashi wa dylan desu sayoōnara

  • Loving it.

    By ADHMexico
    Touches on all ways of learning - visual, oral, tactile (typing). Thanks!
  • Language learning made fun!

    By DocteurN
    This is not the first app I have tried in learning a language, but it is one of my favorites - it is structured to help you learn quickly but also retain the language you are learning. There are tests to assess your progress which will keep you motivated. Want to learn a language - check out Busuu!!
  • Good app but a drawback

    By SeanBud
    Needs translation on more of the exercises. Often I do not know what the exercise is asking.
  • Me gusta esta aplicación

  • Hands down best app or program

    By Best Language Learning Program
    For learning another language of course! I am absolutely a fan of this app! I’ve tried duolingo, but it was boring and I had a hard time getting basic understanding of how to even hold a conversation. This app is more than an app. It is really a program designed to teach you how to converse in another language, quickly and grammatically correct. No street slang or silly gimmicks. ¡Gracias, Busuu! ¡Estoy contento!

  • Great learning app!

    By Jess8223
    I opted to purchase the premium plan for $45 for the year to refresh and continue my understanding of German for a new job position. I have been able to quickly catch up to where I was in high school and learn much more in just a few days!
  • Amazing App

    By Gymnast2493
    I’ve written a review in the past, but thought I would give an update as I took some time away from the app. Why I stopped using Busuu I’m not sure. Pretty sure I just got sidetracked with life in general. I absolutely LOVE utilizing this app for language learning. There aren’t any shortcuts with learning something new or developing a skill, but Busuu sure does make it a lot easier! You’re able to learn a new language without it being over complicated. Review is also super easy. Not only do you get to review phrases and words as you continue with the lesson, you can also quiz yourself on words and phrases that you’ve “favorited”. It’s perfect. Since the app has been updated I love it even more. Having a language learning plan and notifications to remind me to study keeps me on track for my learning goals. I’m excited to see how much I progress over the next few months!
  • Latin Spanish

    By GuapoDeLaMancha
    I live in California and wish they had an option to learn more Latin Spanish as opposed to the Spanish being spoken in Spain.
  • Çok güzel ❤️❤️

  • تقييم

    By A.hmad M.
    For many lessons, most content is not free. We also can not learn more than one language as in the famous "Duolingo" application. However, this application provides a distinctive learning experience. This application would be the most wonderful if you fix these two problems!
  • Fabulous

    By Jules_2014
    I have tried several Spanish apps. This one is my favorite for adult learning. It taps into learning in a variety of ways. You begin using the vocabulary in conversation and sentences. You add friends from all over to help with pronunciation and grammar.
  • Best French-learning option around

    By jdmCrush
    Better than in-person classes. Busuu teaches me what I want. No BS no filler, just interesting remarks about French and how I continue to learn French.
  • Worth it!

    By samsunflower
    I used to think Babbel was the best language learning app ever, but busuu beats it because you can get help from native speakers by correcting each other’s exercises.
  • Pretty good

    By oomycete
    The social portion has room for improvement. Otherwise it’s a solid app
  • Thank

    By بسم الله الرحمن رحيم
    Is good
  • One of the better language apps

    By T-Rexthekingdino
    I like this one better than other language apps because it does offer a free version that you can use at all times, unlike other apps that give you “lives” and if you mess up you have to wait for your lives to fill back up, which ultimately makes it hard to learn a language when you only get limited attempts to answer questions. Busuu is great in that regard that it doesn’t affect you if you mess up, you simply guess an answer again. However, to access more vital parts of the app, like quizzes, you’ll need to pay for premium. I’m liking premium so far, and feel like I’m actually learning something, so I’d say it’s worth giving a try. There’s also a nice feature where people can correct each other’s sentences, so you can have someone who speaks the language you are learning give you insight!
