Language courses for students
During Covid, many schools and universities, and often libraries, had to close — a problem for anyone studying languages. Babbel can help you keep studying in such times so that you don't lose your learning rhythm. You can use the time at home to learn languages like Spanish, Italian, French, German, Turkish, or Dutch, even when all the normal courses are cancelled. Babbel is particularly useful to help prepare for studying languages abroad. And the app is a great option when applying for language courses abroad that require knowledge of the language. You can use it to learn the basics on your own before your course. And whatever you're learning in person you can complement with the short virtual lessons that you can easily work through, for example in the evening before going to bed. In addition, all the lessons use different media types to help you practise not only reading, but also writing, speaking and listening, even offline.
Ready for the semester abroad
Many students don't have any experience with everyday language until they're in their semester abroad. That can often be quite different from what's learned in school or university. Babbel, on the other hand, offers courses designed by native speakers, often using their own regional accents and dialects. If you're going to Mexico, for example, you can use the app to learn the finer points of regional Spanish pronunciation and playfully learn about slang words and accents. That makes it much easier for everyday life and lets you assimilate into the culture more quickly. It also promotes acceptance from those around you, letting you look forward to an unforgettable time in a new country. What makes Babbel so special for students is that the courses are built from a combination of learning-focused and everyday language. Around 150 experts are consistently optimising the lessons, currently covering 14 languages, including Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Swedish and Indonesian. The courses are designed to fit perfectly into today's world: They're short and interactive so that they can be integrated into everyday life. Practical, applicable knowledge is particularly important. You'll know how to order food and ask for directions to the lecture hall at university after just a short time. As you can download the units, it's also possible to complete your lessons offline on your smartphone. If you want, you can study a particular language on a secluded beach or in front of other impressive natural scenery.
