Babbel curtails language learning costs using iPad subscriptions

Babbel iPad subscriptions

Learning a new language can be an expensive endeavor, with assisted tools often adding up to hundreds of dollars. Babbel has taken a different approach, ditching the upfront cost and instead replacing it with monthly subscriptions. All 11 languages that the company offers follow three pricing structures: $12.95 a month, $26.85 for three months, and $44.70 for six months. Cunning linguists can access the learning tools either from the internet or via the iPad, but having access to both will command a slight premium over the basic subscriptions. Even with the slight price bump for iPad accessibility, it’s much more affordable than other methods.
