The Babbel Difference

Arne Schepker | CEO of Babbel

Our focus is not just on teaching you a language, but on enabling transformative experiences. There is a strong sense of personal transformation as you begin to understand and speak with others in a new language.

Driven by our purpose — creating mutual understanding through language — we build products that help people connect with others and experience the transformational power of language. Whether it’s through the Babbel app, Babbel Live online classes, Babbel podcasts, or Babbel for Business, we take on the role of a personal language coach, guiding learners toward real-life conversations in their target language.
