Babbel is one of the stalwarts of the online language-learning sphere, having set up shop on the Web back in 2008. Following its first foray onto mobile with iOS back in 2010, it later hit Android too with a series of apps covering German, Spanish, French, Italian and more, focusing on vocabulary training.

Now, following in the footsteps of the iOS incarnation, Android users can also access the full Web-based courses on Android, with progress synced through the cloud across all platforms. The latest revamp also brings all 13 languages together under one roof – which certainly simplifies things. The existing standalone vocabulary training apps will remain on Google Play for another month or so, but after that you will still be able to access this in the new app, under courses>words>sentences.

The first course of each language will be available to try for free, after which you can choose from four subscription levels – 1 month ($12.95), 3 months ($8.95/m), 6 months ($7.45/m) or 12 months ($6.95/m). This includes access to all content on all platforms, and covers interactive dialogs, grammar, vocabulary, listening and writing exercises, speech recognition and more.
