Interactive way of learning languages

I’ve been amazed by this way of learning languages , letting native speakers help each other . I am glad that I found this app. Highly recommend! One and only weakness is that when learners give answers to questions , I think it’s better to have different versions of answers . For example I am learning polish with this app, sometimes , when I translate : you were watching .... ,only ‘oglądałeś’ is accepted , but this case we can have different answers like : oglądałeś , oglądałaś, ty oglądałeś. Hope this problem will get solved soon

Hi! Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so glad you are enjoying busuu.

We are aware that the exercise is a little restrictive at the moment and we are working on solutions to improve this by accepting other possible answers. We really appreciate your feedback and hope you find the new Review helpful.

Keep up the good work and do not ever lose the motivation to learn a new language.

Have a lovely day, the busuu team.

Great app but be carefull with payment!

I bought premium app for one year in a promotion price 100,00 zł. I was using app for few months. It was great and the best which I have ever use, but I stopped learning. I was very dissapointed when after year I saw on my bank account 200,00 zł less. I write to Busuu that i want resing but they said that it is too late and I cant do this. I know that i should resign before time was up but if busuu Just only send me an e-mail that time is ending and they will renew my subscription as another trusted companys do this. Most notably I had to pay 100% more than I payed year ago. If I would know that the price will cost 50$ I would never agree to subsribe premium version.

Aplikacja do nauki języków jest świetna, jednak należy pamiętać o anulowaniu subskrypcji przed upływem terminu. Wykupiłam subskrypcje w promocji na rok za 100 zł, aplikacji używałam przez kilka miesięcy, po upływie roku na koncie zobAczylam pomniejszone saldo o 200zl! Subskrypcja została odnowiona automatycznie za standardowa kwotę. Kilka dni po zakończeniu subskrypcji napisałam do busuu prośbę o anulowanie subskrypcji i niepobieranie opłaty, jednak dostałam odmowę. Wystarczyło wysłać w maila przypominającego o zbliżającym się upływie terminu i obecnej kwocie subskrypcji (po roku czasu można zapomnieć), na pewno nie skorzystałabym z aplikacji na takich warunkach. W godnych zaufania aplikacjach są wysyłane takie maile.

Amazing app!

It’s the best application for learning languages, I’ve ever tried. There are great lessons to learn new vocabulary and grammar, a lot of dialogues to practice listening skills, system to repeat words you’ve already learned and wonderful community that helps you with your speaking and writing skills. You will benefit a lot from this application, if you’re a beginner or an intermediate learner. If you decide to purchase premium (as I did), you may learn up to 12 languages
