I like Babbel. I used Duolingo too for a while. But they need you to be online with your mobile device to practice. You cant download lessons.

Thats why i choose Babbel. And the lessons are way cooler in my opinion.

Can lessons be downloaded on Babbel?

I only tried the free version of Babbel on the mobile. Hopefully somewhere might know. I'm also interested. Thanks for asking! :)

Duolingo and Busuu are both good for vocab and basic grammar but they won't really help you become conversational. For that, you'd need to attend a class or look into great audio books.



Exactly my thoughts. I tried Duolingo. It's good for basic vocab but it isn't really commendable for speech learning. I thought I had learned to speak some basic French greetings taught by Duolingo but when I tried to talk to a live person, the actual spoken accent is way different than what Duolingo taught me. Moral lesson: don't rely too much on non-human teachers :-D

I started using Duolingo three months ago and I think the App is OK. I haven't tried any of the others because I didn't know them.

 I agree that Duolingo makes it hard to remember the words but the learning style is like playing a quiz which is interesting for me.

If I was to choose being an animal, I will like to be an Eagle.

Both apps are great for vocab building though. That and it's prefect for learners who don't have the time or the funds to take formal langauge lessons.
