Anyone can learn languages. This vision has driven the Babbel team since 2007. The market-leading app for online learning makes languages from English to Indonesian easily accessible from home on a computer, or on the go with a smartphone or tablet. Babbel supports those who discover the joy of independent learning outside of a professional or educational setting. By using Babbel courses in their everyday lives, learners stay motivated over time and use Babbel far in excess of 12 months on average. The premium business model ensures an ad-free experience with the focus remaining squarely on content.
Babbel combines high-quality courses with modern technology. Content is developed specifically for every language and level of difficulty by a professional team of didacts, authors and language teachers. The app is data-driven and constantly learns from input generated by actual use.
Babbel is led by founders Markus Witte (CEO), Thomas Holl (CTO) and Lorenz Heine (Chief Innovation Officer), as well as Markus Corallo (CFO). The company employs a team of over 300 at their headquarters in Berlin. The service is available worldwide at Babbel.com (and on iOS and Android mobile devices), offering courses in 14 languages with seven source languages corresponding to the respective mother tongue of the learner.
