Good Balance

Good balance of structural grammar and vocabulary. It can be overwhelming to have too much vocabulary thrown at you at once, but in this case the emphasis is on learning the grammar so you can plug in new words as you go. I like the social aspect where strangers correct each other’s answers in their own languages. I’d just like an easier way to report potential mistakes inside the app.

Would be perfect if I only wanted Spain Spanish

Is an effective learning tool, with a mix of conversation, vocabulary, grammar lessons, & the best part of all the real-world corrections from native speakers. However, I have found much difficulty for me as I have been learning Latin American Spanish for some time now, and Busuu seems to only recognize/teach Spain Spanish, which is very different. They do sometimes, in their “Tips” section, include phrases that are different in Latin America, but I would much rather prefer a non-Spain Spanish language course offering. If they did that, I would definitely go Premium. It’s just not worth it for me at this time since they are so focused on how Spanish is spoken in just one country of the entire Spanish-speaking world.

First time Spanish learner

So far so good. I initially signed up for the free version. Upgraded to the paid due to the really good deal offered and I could not pass up. I will update my review as I use the app more.
