Babbel is an online language course. It combines writing, listening and practicing in a single interface available both online via the website and offline via the app.
Babbel is for beginners all the way up to those who want to improve. They offer thousands of hours of fun, interactive courses. Each lesson takes just a few minutes. Babbel can even listen to your pronunciation and help correct it if need be. I like that part because it lets you know if you're saying it right.
Babbel provides in-depth explanations of grammatical concepts. After introducing you to a new concept, Babbel presents you with relevant exercises, often consisting of single letter fill-in-the-blank lessons focusing on this new concept exclusively. In addition Babbel has different levels so that even those with some experience with a language can still learn from Babbel. They even have an option to read and write in another language.
Vocabulary: You learn individual words, you then have exercises to help you remember them.
Dialogue: You listen and read a dialogue with missing words, you have to find the missing words and complete the dialogue.
Grammar lesson: Grammar explanations about the dialogue.
