    I’ve been enjoying Busuu for years now. I discovered it as a teenager when the program was strictly online. I even made a friend on the site. It’s easy to use and fun and the app is super convenient. I love it and I give it five stars!!! XO Busuu

    I am trying to learn how to speak Haitian-Creole because my soon to be husband is Haitian and I wanted to surprise his mother with the words I learned. But sadly they have a certain selection of languages...it’s annoying because the app is said to have “all” languages. All I’m seeing it “common” languages that was probably picked by small minded workers. Smh what a total disappointment. Talk about false advertising.

    I wish it was all access for free. If that was a feature then it would be a 10 star status. But I do understand the developers needs for consistent funds.

    I like that it makes it easy to see others that are learning. I’m already “fluent” in a language and take learning seriously. But there are some pros and cons: Pro: nice layout, smooth app, has characters and pronunciation and listening... actually the price at 50% off is decent... but the glaring issue is con #1. Without the sale price it’s just not worth it because of the long list. Cons: it’s not obvious how to start at any given level. Why am I at step 1 and how do I get to intermediate? I don’t have 50 hours to re-do a language from 0. This is why I haven’t paid and won’t pay until I get out. I also don’t like the lack of obvious curriculum. What units, grammars, etc are actually covered? I have no idea what I’ll study in the year of access, but worse is not knowing what I’m paying for. I also find having locked features that take up or block 35% of the screen frustrating. It won’t let me finish a lesson because I haven’t taken the quiz. But only paying members can take the quiz. Sometimes it lets you start the quiz, and after answering one question it locks into sales mode again. Also frustrating is that I can’t seem to “lock” people / correction matches to certain languages or regions. It isn’t obvious if I can actually message them privately either if I made a friend. If they fixed these things, I’d be so happy to pay for a year or two. Until then, I’m just frustratedly hoping updates fix things or I find the info I need somewhere off the internet.
  • Great app to learn, is magical

    You learn the meaning of the words, the use, grammatical concepts, conversations , and the community of users would help you to correct your mistakes. Can’t be better.
