    Overall, an excellent app that helps you learn language effectively. If you want to be able to articulate yourself in complete sentences and not resort to parroting phrases, Busuu has helped me accomplish that. Starting Spanish from the first level, I've managed to pass the A1-A2 certificates and work through about 1/4 of level B1 in about 2 months, usually practicing about 4-5 times a week. I finally am starting to both read, write and hear basic Spanish decently! The sections are just long enough to reinforce learning yet short enough that I don't put off doing it each weekday. The vocabulary review is very helpful and essential for retention! For the most part, the social aspects are helpful, but there's a lot of people who start and fizzle out, so you might have a high turnover rate of "friends" who consistently help. Nonetheless, it's a fun aspect of the app. As for improvement? Two thoughts: 1) The lessons are pretty well designed and easy to follow. But, the letter tiles for the spelling assignments are too small and grouped too closely together. It's easy to select the wrong one. Also, iPhone SE and smaller phones really need to pay attention and make sure some answers aren't off-screen during exercises/tests. It'd be nice if there was an easy way to tell that you need to scroll down in those situations. 2) While I understand the approach to use total Spanish in the instructions/explanations in B1 and on, it's quite a learning curve if your vocabulary is limited to the words taught in previous lessons. I often have to spend a few minutes looking up the new words (or lazily resort to Google translate if I'm getting frustrated) before I understand what I'm being "taught." Maybe a translation toggle like they do in dialogues would help, at least at first? Even so, I understand what they're trying to do, but plan for the lessons to take 2-3 times longer if all you know are the words taught in Busuu's previous lessons. Ultimately, it's totally worth the paid price and I'm glad I have it for a year. I probably will renew, since I like learning the basics of languages. You probably will still want other resources to reinforce/expand grammar and vocabulary if you're serious about a language, but it's a solid foundation at a very reasonable price.

    This's a very interesting app
  • Learning the app itself is a challenge

    My first complaint is that when I first opened the app and it gave me the option of testing out of lower levels, I took the test but lost some points just because I couldn't figure out the app. For example, it said to "match" words and phrases, but it didn't explain that you do this by dragging and dropping over over the other. Another example is when it asks you to select words or phrases, but doesn't say whether you should select articles (like el or la), and then I lose points because I selected them. That said, now that I've learned how to use the app, I really like it! It has a good variety of scenarios with relevant vocabulary and sentences, and it had a good mix of interface elements like listen and fill in the blanks, type what you hear, matching, speaking, etc. I'm learning a lot.
  • It goes too fast!

    This app is great and all but it goes too fast for a human mind. It doesn’t teach me the Japanese alphabet or the basics, I’ve learned three things over two months and that’s it. I feel like you shouldn’t have to pay for anything and the diolauge parts are super hard! It’s not we teach you and you say it back and if you mess up start over, it’s memorize or go forward not learning anything. I recommend trying a different app.
