Busuu is one of the best English language apps available today and highly recommended for learning English at beginner level. Designed by linguists, busuu combines human interaction and AI-powered teaching to help you learn a language faster.
Busuu provides courses in 12 languages on its mobile app to more than 90 million learners worldwide. Through this community, learners can connect with native speakers and get instant feedback on their speaking and writing exercises.
Busuu’s lessons cover the typical reading, writing, speaking, spelling, and generating language you expect in any language-learning course. Especially for beginners, it helps to know what you will learn today, what you are expected to have learned by now, and what you will learn next. Structure also allows for good scaffolding, meaning you learn by building on what you already know, rather than being exposed to random and unconnected lessons in grammar, vocabulary, and so forth.
With Busuu, you can talk with native English speakers to practice your English speaking and can also provide feedback to people learning English languages or get feedback from more advanced English learners.
The busuu team regularly measures the effectiveness of busuu’s language learning methodology. In 2016, they conducted an independent study with a research team from City University of New York and the University of South Carolina to measure the learning outcomes of our product. The study found that 22 hours of busuu is equivalent to one college semester of language learning.
