App Reviews

  • I am obsessed

    By ArmadilloNinja
    [disclaimer: I bought the full account so I have features not everyone might, but I seriously recommend getting the full version, it’s worth every single penny] As an avid language learner, I’ve tried every app and website out there, and this is by far my favourite of all of the ones I’ve ever used. From the gorgeous and entertaining design to the sensical and organised lessons, everything is just perfect. I love the separated grammar lessons so much and the culture/grammar notes as I learn new things are so helpful and interesting, they really add an exciting element to my learning and remind me of how amazing it is to be opening the door to a new world by learning the language. One of my favourite things is how the lessons are laid out and how you can go about completing them. Unlike most apps and websites where the groupings are by random topics and you must do them in order, busuu has a fantastic way of taking a concept, teaching vocabulary for it, introducing grammar with that vocabulary, and making it all useful for actual communication. That to me is one of the best features, because I know that I’m constantly learning material I need, instead of crawling my way through 4 lessons about food to get to the important stuff. Busuu is amazing, and I recommend it to literally everyone, thanks busuu for motivating me and making learning so much fun!
  • Love it / Quiéralo

    By Wm242424
    So far, so good. I would like to thank the developers for taking the time to read this (hello! :) Also, Thank You for developing Busuu. I have been refreshing my Spanish (first language is English) and I really do enjoy this app! Much appreciated! I recommend to anyone that is dedicated to learning another language as well! I read in a previous comment that expanding the social portion of the app would be appreciated and I 100% agree ! It would be awesome to have pen pals or something set up that would allow one to practice with someone trying to do the opposite (like someone fluent in Spanish learning English would be my opposite and so I would b connected to them and we would be able to help each other one on one whenever possible . (via email, video chat, phone calls, all of the above :) or however Busuu would prefer to set a messaging system/way to communicate). I just really loved that idea and think the best way to learn a language is to actually use the language as much as possible and immerse oneself in the language consistently. Thank you again Busuu for you super cool, fun, easy language learning app! I think tech people/developers are literally some of smartest hardworking people ever and I give you Kudos !! Take Care and God Bless✌️
  • Not for me

    By Escoce
    So, I started the trial and I liked busuu, but as I progressed through the program I found I needed to go back to previous lessons a lot, which isn’t very easy to do without interrupting and having to restart your current lesson. That made review pretty difficult. I also was dismayed at how quickly my “fluency” rating was increasing despite the fact I continuously needed to review old material. I finally felt I wasn’t really learning much. Plus, you aren’t really taught the written languages. The hiragana and katakana seem to be included incidentally, and kanji get thrown in randomly without explanation. I hate to say this, but at least for me I found better resources Learn Japanese!!, Learn Japanese!-Kanji and Learn Japanese!!! seem to really be in tune with modern learning techniques, force you to review items you make mistakes on more often, and uses SRS review methods. You don’t need to know what SRS means, but it’s damned clever and really reinforces what you have learned. Also, Anki is great for memorizing the Japanese alphabets, it’s REALLY important to learn those first if you are even a little bit serious about learning Japanese. I think busuu could really improve itself if it took a few pages from these other programs. If they did that, and I had a chance to review the program again, I would like the chance to delete this review and give them the stars I wanted to when I first downloaded the program.
  • Not immersive enough

    By Markiub
    My biggest gripe with any language learning app is there is waaay to much English (my native language) in the lessons. This app is no different. It’s so much harder for my brain to go back and forth between two different languages, rather than just being immersed in one language and not having to go back and forth. This is the way we learn as babies and this is the way that works for me. The first 3 flashcards were 3 different new Japanese words and the 4th flashcard was an English question, “This means ___. True or False.” Nooooo. I just had one card telling me a word and then two other cards of two different words and now you’re quizzing me in English? Just no. And then the next card was a sentence in Japanese asking again in English, what did I hear. If I listen to the same word and see the pictures, that’s all I need. No English. No quizzing. Just speaking and listening. If I want a translator, then I worry more about reading and writing. I don’t want a translator. I want a program that actually teaches me a language first. The reading and writing come last. So far, there is only one application that comes close to this. At the very least, I wish there was a way in this app and many other apps to have the option to only speak and listen first.
  • Thank you Busuu

    By Joshhhhhhhhhhhhhhua
    I was looking for a reliable app to learn Turkish on, and I was between Busuu and Babbel. I chose Busuu because when I came to look at the reviews, I saw that almost every comment had a reply from the developers. That shows me that you really care about your customers opinions and complaints, and that you have integrity. I've been using Busuu for only a few hours now and I've already learned new phrases. It's very reliable and unique, and the premium is worth every penny so far. Busuu isn't only an app to learn a language on but also a small form of social media, as it connects you with people from all over the world who are also trying to learn a language, and you could either help them or they help you. And everyone is so polite. I'm having a good time with the app, I'm actually LEARNING. If you're like me, and you're trying to find out who's the best, pick Busuu. You won't regret it.
  • Best language app I've found

    By sud0ku
    I'm one of those tough cases - been trying to learn spanish for years. I've taken classes at high school and college levels, tried Rosetta, and a few other online options. As it happens, I found myself with some advanced grammatical knowledge of the language and a lot of gaping holes on verbs and nouns. I have to say I'm extraordinarily pleased with this app for the comprehensive nature of the lessons, and the social interaction component they've built in. I aso like that there is a nontraditional mix of material, where some more advanced knowledge is mixed in to the beginner's levels compared to typical courses. I might actually become fluent this time! They have functions to record and hear yourself, and to be rated and corrected by native speakers of the language you are learning. A++
  • Nice app

    By chabritto
    I really like this app, the activities and the way new information is presented, however it has a couple of cons you should pay attention to: 1st what I really dislike about the app it’s that when you finish a conversation exercise you don’t always get a score of it, if exercises aren’t revised, then you, as administrators, should revise them, it is not cool to wait for an exercise to be revised and at the end don’t receive a score (and it is worse to receive a correction and see that the person that corrected you is actually wrong, I think you need a double filter in this corrections, we can’t rely on natives since I’ve noticed some people don’t have a clue of what they are correcting) 2nd please check the quality of your audios, they are of a pretty bad quality! Come on, we are paying for this!! (Babbel has better quality, so please do something about it!)
  • Exercises great, social lacking

    By Daniel Greene
    The learning exercises written by the professionals who developed the app are top-notch. I paid for Premium and I don’t regret it in the least. However, I find the social element lacking. One thing I see is a lot of erroneous corrections of English by non-native English speakers. Another element I find missing is that once you have submitted an exercise you cannot ask people to correct it for you; you can only hope that people might come and see it and correct it. The only way to ask for corrections is to checkmark a box before you submit it. Also, once you do make friends, there’s no way to contact them directly. One other thing— it seems like the exercises only take you up to level B2. My goal is to get to C1, so I wish it would offer one more level.
  • Such an awesome app!

    By 小魔闲
    I am a new beginner of Spanish. My friend recommended this app to me. What I like about this app is it teaches you not only vocabularies but also grammars, which help you learn Spanish even quicker. Because there are so many transformations of the verbs in Spanish, as apposed to English, If you just try to memorize them one by one, you will get confused or even totally lost. By knowing grammas, I started to know the basic rules and very confident about my learning process. I started as a user of the free version but later I upgraded to the paid version, which turned out totally worth of the money. The quizzes help you review and memorize what you have learned. This is so far the best language learning app I have been using!
  • Good but could be great!

    By mikaelco110
    First of all, a very good app to learn a new language! The interactivity with other learners are superb. The thing that is stopping this from being amazing is the repeat by voice. Lessons that require you to repeat the phrase is really flawed. I repeated random words to test it out and it most certainly passes every third try. I know developers probably think to just get help from a native speaker later on, but what’s the point of including a mandatory oral practice in the first place? Other than that, it’s very good. I might add that it would be great to include a feature that allows users to publish a question. Users can ask for grammar clarification from native speakers to answer. However, that means developers need to monitor to make sure there isn’t spam.
