Babbel’s method is an effective way to learn a new language: most of its students are able to have basic conversations after three weeks. By forcing you to speak right from the first class and applying well-spaced repetition, Babbel makes sure everything you learn sticks and is not forgotten. Unfortunately, there is neither a free plan nor a trial. Nevertheless, you can try the first class of any of the available courses free of charge. Plus, the 20-day money-back guarantee is perfect to test out the product for yourself.
