Ratings and Reviews
Great language app for beginners
I have used other language apps before (such as Duolingo) which are ok but Busuu breaks down the lessons in a more visual way.
I like how it can work you towards the recognised language standards (A1, A2 etc…) and uses a good mix of spelling prompts and examples of application in conversation. I really like the section where you can test yourself or brush up on the vocabulary and grammar you’ve already learnt - especially useful for when you’ve not used the app for a few weeks.
The ability to exchange tips with other learners is great and helps to understand how people ‘actually’ speak the language.
My only criticism is that the app doesn’t help you to understand why sentences are structured in the way they are when you struggle on something later in the app - i.e for each lesson it would do with a little question mark or hint button when your get a question wrong for something you should already know, so you can see why your answer was not accepted.
Short comings spoil experience
Update: I’m done with this app. I really can’t be dealing with Busuu’s mistakes when it affects the ability to learn. Random words are not accepted as correct in the review sections, 新聞 is wrong but しんぶん is correct? 大判の新聞 is incorrect, おおばんのしんぶん is also incorrect as only おおばん の しんぶん with the spaces included is accepted as a correct answer. The conversations are still completely written in hiragana with no option to read kanji. How is anyone meant to progress learning their Japanese if the app just becomes a mess once you move past A1.
This is a good app for learning language but a few persistent errors make its frustrating to use. Doing my word reviews there are often mistakes between what is spoken/written and what You get a correct answer for. It’s really annoying to have to remember which sentences I have to listen to 彼らは but change it to 彼は simply because Busuu is mixed up. Another example is some grammar when you’ll hear 午後に新聞 being said and making sense, however it seems to only accept 午後新聞. LingoDeer gives the user the option to contest answers and say ‘my answer was correct’, a feature that is very useful but also I never need to use. The more time I spend on Busuu, the more frequent these issues crop up. It’d also be nice on the review section to see both the English and Japanese translation or at least have some settings to set personal preferences, especially when they’re charging £80 a year.

Love this so much
Hi all, I’m rating this 5 stars because this app gives you so much for so little. I’ve been learning French and Spanish for a little while now, and I’m really proud of how much progress I’ve made in so little time. Busuu helps you learn the right stuff at the right time when you need to learn it!! You learn in many different ways to help find how you learn best, and it gives a variety of how to learn. Two little things is that you can only learn one language at a time if you don’t but the premium. Also, it is really annoying that you can only have one learning plan despite how many languages you learn. It is really annoying because as my sister and I share the same account, there are two of us and there is only one learning plan. We are both big language people, and it’s just really annoying. If you could fix that, then that would be so awesome. I would definitely give 5 stars then.
However, when I payed for the premium, it really does unlock everything and is very helpful. But despite that, even without paying, I was the top of my class in French, so if you want to learn a language for travel, fluency, or anything else, and quick, then Busuu is really the app for you.
