Busuu language learning app offers interactive lessons and the opportunity to practice with native speakers. The app has some bugs and lacks detailed explanations, but it is effective for language revision. It provides grammar lessons and vocabulary practice, and allows users to receive corrections from native speakers. However, there are limitations in the app's translations and mnemonics. Despite these drawbacks, Busuu is a valuable tool for language learning.Busuu: Learn Languages - Apps on Google Play

The spoken French in the app come with some weird accents that I don't recognise as French. Potentially recorded with non-native speakers or those from Canada perhaps? Feels like they should do a separate course for Canada as there has been an emphasis on Canadian culture from the beginning. I'll update my review if this changes.
I am one of the learners of Japanese.Overall is good but the latest version is a bit troublesome(or technical errors,I assumed).It just back to home page without finishing all the sessions which is under one topic when I review the exercises. So no point to finish the whole topic when reviewing the exercises.hope to fix it soon.
Very good app. I truly appreciate how it tracks ones progress while getting community feedback. This app accomplishes what many apps fail to do. It's fun, simple, comprehensible, and engaging. You really don't have to try very hard but see results. The lessons on here are very informative and the sense of progress adds to that comfort. Thank you for this app. I've decided to purchase premium so I'm will edit this comment sometime in the future to share my experiences in more depth.
Unbelievably supportive function as a foreign languages mentorship platform. After using plenty of apps and online classes, I rate Busuu as being the best and by far the most effective language learning app. What a pity they don't have also a dedicated chapter for listening exercises, besides the pronounciation one! I miss that part, especially when it comes to the German language..
I cant get back to my account, when I updated Busuu, it logged me out and I couldn't find my account with the subscription in it. Now I just wasted my subscription. I have tried all emails I registered for Busuu but non of it has my subscription. Please help me track and sign in using the account with subscription. Also don't auto log out someone's account 😭
I wish I hadn't paid for this app. To begin with, I liked the grammatical emphasis that Busuu provided in Spanish but Duolingo, despite its game-like graphics, actually offers better colloquial progression. Busuu is less 'real world' in that it is more academic than conversational. As a native French speaker, I tried the French Busuu for comparison. No French person really speaks the way Busuu would have you believe. I've cancelled my Busuu annual subscription, continuing with Duolingo.
I love this app. It's far better than Duolingo and others I've tried, and the feedback system is really useful. However, the Japanese hiragana and katakana (and maybe kanji, but I haven't got that far) mnemonics are complete trash. A lot of them don't even help you remember the sound of the character, which is the whole point. Eg katakana ミ (mi) the mnemonic is raindrops. What? It should be MEteorites. If you combine the app with a good mnemonic system like Tofugu it's fine, but...
Love it so far, have had the app for a little over 2 weeks, but there is just one issue I'm confused about. It's not a big deal but I've recently moved up from Bronze league to Silver league. Now that I'm silver, I wanted to check my leaderboard placement, but it says I need to complete a lesson before I do. I've done nearly 5 or 6 lessons at this point and still nothing, it just continuosly says I need to do a lesson. This started yesterday night.
the interaction with other people is interesting, but that's it. the placement test is extremely short (and the same every time), and it doesn't have comprehensive lessons at all. it shows you a sentence in your target language along with the translation, then asks you to do a few basic questions immediately after, so you don't even absorb anything. you could get nearly all the lessons 100% correct without learning anything. doesn't teach conjugation or tenses or anything.
Good but poor attention to detail. Busuu does a better job of explaining things than other apps, it tells you the rules rather than expecting you to intuit them. While I like the app and am learning from it, there are basic problems. A major one is explaining the exercises: e.g. it asks you to write out a question but when shown for community review it looks like the user was supposed to answer that question. Also the league countdown says days instead of hours on the last day e.g. 23 days
This app is fairly decent, but it lacks precision in its translations, which isn'tbad but annoys me. It doesn't drill you on words like the other apps do. Instead, it focuses entirely on how you should speak. On the other hand, it doesn't explain any concepts, and you can't see individual word meanings. I also wish you could focus on one word in a sentence for pronunciation with slowmo instead of having to repeatedly listen to the entire phrase.
The best app ever to learn languages, it gives the opportunity to study both grammar and vocabulary, nevertheless interact with native speakers that correct your Busuu "homework". So far, it is possible to study from beginner to Advanced the following languages: Spanish, English, French, German. you can also study other languages such as Italian Portuguese, Russian, Japanese and so on. I already learned Portuguese, Spanish and German, and I am on my way to learn French with this app.
The develop team don't care my complaints! After course completely finished, only 1132 words list. Many words can't be added to vocabulary list because no option to add. Those that can be added, have option in the right upper corner of the photos. EACH WORD that's placed below the photos has to be abled to add in the vocabulary list 😤! A complete course (for which is paid premium!!) only 1132 words, thousands of words too few to speak the language properly! Badly articulated and too fast audio.
I'm doing the Japanese course. Even though I miss features as hiragana/katakana/kanji drawing exercices and the option to mark favourite lessons (that's why I cannot give 5 stars), it's probably the best app I've found to learn Japanese and with no ads at all. Also, the social component is great and the people helps you a lot correcting you. I will pay for the premium app to support it, they deserve it!
Lightyears ahead of Duolingo to be sure. Love that you can interact and get native speakers to correct your work. Also, unlike it's competitor it gives you useful phrases. However, there are limitations. For instance, non-native speakers can correct your work and vice versa. I've seen some seriously dubious English corrections from people who don't speak native English. It shouldn't be allowed. You should have to select your native language and that's the only one you're allowed to correct.
imo the app is more immersive, however you have to use it as an addition to your learning, since it wont explain some of the concepts of certain language. For example French is a very weird language, if you haven't learned some of the basics it can be frustrating at times to understand and follow up
It is incredible! I've been trying to learn Japanese through other apps, I don't it's ethical to mention them, though I feel much of progress using this one. I can't overlook how smart it was to add manga as a way of learning. And letting native speakers correct your tasks is huge plus. I've been lucky to pump into one of your ads. I should highlight that I'm using the free version, sure the premium is totally worth it! Can't recommended enough! + Thank you for making this app 💙💙💙
It is very well structured, especially if you want to do A2. Also, you get access to a community who can correct your mistakes on the occasion of a writing or speaking exercise. The examples and videos are of real people and therefore, let's you relate to their expressions. I unfortunately don't have the financial capability to use the paid model. But when I do I will invest in Busuu premium. I am doing Busuu in conjugation of Duolingo. I recommend these two apps given that one has motivation
I've been enjoying the app. I did discover a bug today. I'm learning Japanese, and I noticed today that if I click the symbol in the top right of the screen, it will switch the text between hiragana and kanji, so I decided to leave it on kanji so I would become more familiar with the Kanji. However, when I was doing one of the matching excercises, I could only get two out of three matches correct, and had to switch to hiragana to get the last one correct. Elementary A2 Creating nouns from verbs.
Overall a pretty helpful app. the format is straightforward and the lessons are good. Being able to receive corrections from native speakers is a nice feature. However, the review section doesn't seem to be available offline and repeats the same basic phrases too often.
I really like this language app. The courses are free and I can learn at my own pace. This is my alterative to Duolingo. This app helps me with grammar tips, and I like the writing and speaking exercises where I can practice these skills and others can correct my exercises and give me feedback, while I do the same with their exercises. It will be great to offer more languages, such as Hebrew and Greek.
It's good, but I wish it were better. UI is pretty buggy in a lot of places. The audio player widgets have no replay button, and you can't drag to start it from the beginning. Text formatting for the tips can be hit-or-miss, sometimes it takes me several minutes to figure it out. I had a "killer lesson" crash the app anytime I tried to load it. Overall, the learning strategy is sound, and the community and content is solid, but they could benefit from more UX polish.
I have used this app for about 6 months. It does not teach you. It is more of a revision tool that is great alongside other kind of language study, whether academic or personal, but it does not get into the explanation of grammar rules, etc. At least not for the language that I am learning. Essentially a revision tool with examples of sentences/vocabulary and a social community group that is the best aspect of this app, as the native speakers can correct your pronounciation and writing skills.
I absolutely love the content in this app, but it is chock full of bugs that don't seem to get addressed. I've passed two different certification exams where at the very end the app times out and I'm forced to retake the exam. It takes an obscene amount of time to load your learned words list once you get deep into a language, and when I review my learned words at random, the same two words are always in the set. I'm really rooting for this app, but it needs some work.
It's great to have other help with pronunciation and spelling! Great resource Edit: after using it for a while, I realized that there is no go back button once you are going through a lesson. If you want to double check something or want to reset the lesson, it's not possible. This is kinda frustrating as I have to make multiple mistakes until I finish the lesson, so I can take it again.
Good app for learning, but for example you want to learn Spanish Spain and people from Columbia or Argentina tell you their version of corrections and if you are a beginner this can be really confusing. I would suggest limiting corrections to speakers, who speak the variant you are learning. Gave you one star more for having Es_es and Latin American. Thought there is no separation, because I was doing some corrections for people and some suggestions are totally off.
Absolutely the most perfect app I used since Duolingo for learning a new language. Lessons for fast, I get pretty good notes from all sections of a lesson. And most importantly, because I could get feedback from *actual* people instead of just the app (referring to Duolingo), it makes me feel more better about learning and that people are encouraging my learning instead of trying to discourage it. Love the app, I highly recommend it to anyone I know!
This is an excellent language-learning tool. I've migrated to this app after using Duolingo for years (and becoming tired with its infantile design and terrible "endless scroll" UI downgrade). Busuu builds its lessons around grammar, providing a more comprehensive and structured learning experience than Duolingo, while retaining some of the gamification features. The app also offers an excellent community feature, and permits the learning of multiple languages. I love it!
Much better than duolingo. The manner in which it teaches you is much more natural. It starts with conversational phrases and the little videos of hearing people speak. Make it much more natural for learning. It has a dictionary of words, but not all the words you learn go in there which is the reason why this is only getting four stars instead of five. I also like the slightly social aspect of having other people correct your work. I wish there was more pronunciation correction early on.
I like the app, but if you, like me, are studying more than one language at the same time, you will find that switching between your languages or different courses can be really problematic. They fixed the Problem but after the last update similar problem appeared. Course level is lost when switching between languages. Very annoying
