This is a review of BUSUU which is the best language learning app on the planet. It is better than Duolingo and it is better than iTalki and Mondly, which I also did a review of (the review was for Mondly language learning). Most features are free, so for free Spanish learning apps it is perfect.
The Busuu easy language learning system gets you as close to full fluency as any single app can, as far as I am concerned.
People sometimes ask me about Duolingo for Spanish vs Busuu for Spanish and Duolingo vs Mondly, to which my answer is that there is not even a competition. You might as well put polyglot Luca Lampariello (who speaks 14 languages) up against my monolingual son. Busuu is among the best language learning apps if not THE best language learning app. It is also among the best free russian learning apps.
ITalki has been one of my go to language learning tools (video on iTalki language learning coming soon) but it’s much more expensive to do a large amount of iTalki than to just use Busuu (all the content can be had for FREE.) You can tell that the people who made this app have actually studied language acquisition theory; it is not a coincidence that they have all these effective language learning techniques worked into the language exercises.
However, where most learning language apps are boring if they effective, Busuu is both effective and interesting to do. Since it is free for the material, it is a sort of diy language learning and if you did the entire course, I am SURE that you could reach fluency in a language. I myself am on the way to reach fluency in French, but you could reach fluency in spanish or German plus nine more languages.
So, if it is the best language learning app you’re after, or just the apps better than Duolingo, what you want is Busuu: watch this review to find out why.
People also talk about how to get lingots on duolingo, which I find a bit strange. I have thousands of lingots on Duolingo (mostly due to my 1000 day Duolingo streak), but honestly it makes no difference to anything because this app is better. Duolingo lingots can not be used to pay for enough things.
Anyway, here is the review of the Busuu app which is an alternative to italki, and alternative to Duolingo, alternative to Mondly, alternative to Memrise. I recommend you use it.
