Have you always wanted to learn a new language, but didn’t know where to start? Babbel is your solution! Babbel is a language learning program that makes learning a new language easy and fun! Babbel offers courses in 13 different languages (Dutch, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Danish,and Norwegian.)The Babbel learning system is based on a mix of methods that combines insights into language didacts research, such as communicative and cognitive approaches, with current learning trends.The primary learning objective is to be able to handle real communication situations as quickly as possible.I chose to learn some German because it is such a cool language that I have always wanted to learn!
Here is how I learned some German using Babbel:
After logging into to Babbel and choosing the language you want to learn, you will be directed to your lessons! This is great for first timers, or someone who just wants to brush up on their skills! I personally had never learned any German (other then hearing Hedie Klume say Auf Wiedersehen on project runway!) So I started out very simply on lesson 1. I first learned a few of the most basic words spoken in German, and actually hearing them spoken really helped a lot! After hearing them, I was directed to match the words, and then type them myself! You also have the choice to use your mic to actually speak the words and get told how you did!
After completing every course Babbel tells you how you did, and how many errors you had, so you can keep up with your progress as you go along! You can always repeat a course to improve your score (and your knowledge) as well!
Another cool aspect of Babbel is the chat room! You can choose the language you are working on, and talk to other people learning with you! It’s a great way to practice what you have learned, and gets some tips from other users!
