After much dilly-dally, I finally signed up for my very first Spanish lesson on Babbel Live!

I’ve been a long time Babbel app user. I used it for German and still using it for Swedish. I’ve been hearing a lot about Babbel Live from Youtube and Reddit. The Babbel subreddit is quite helpful!

In case you haven’t heard, Babbel Live is an language learning platform that offers online classes for Spanish, German, French and Italian. Classes are taught by native speakers over Zoom and each class is kept small, up to a maximum of 6 people.

A Babbel Live subscription gives you complete access to the Babbel app in the language you are learning. Plus, you get to join UNLIMITED classes during the duration of your subscription. I don’t know about you, but in my book, this is excellent value for money!

Each user has 2 free credits to attend any class of their choice. This is to give them a feel of whether this kind of learning is suitable to their style, and is something they can continue doing for longer.

The process is super simple:

  • Create a Babbel Live account on
  • Sign up for a class.
  • Prepare for class. – This includes going through the lesson material and checking that your Zoom account works.
  • Join the classroom on time.
  • Enjoy the class!
  • Leave feedback for the teacher. – I think this is optional but it really helps the teacher.
So many topics and teachers to choose from!

I’ve been studying Spanish on and off for years, and most recently, doing really really light regular studying via Speakly and Duolingo. So I am not a complete beginner. But I chose to attend the very first class in A1.1 to have a feel about what happens exactly in class.

The lesson material (PDF file) will be made available to you once you’ve confirmed your class schedule. It is, of course, highly recommended to go through the lesson material before the class. You can even study more through the Babbel app.

Our teacher was Victoria from Argentina and my classmates were from different parts of the world.

As expected of an A1.1 class, it was very basic. As it is the first class, we learned about the most common Zoom classroom instructions – Escribe en el chat or activa tu cámara, for example.

Still, it was quite fun and useful. Our teacher spoke slower, just to ease everyone into this, especially those who are really starting from zero. We had a breakout room session and my classmates and I were just speaking in English to each other, ahahaah, sorry…This is only the first class, but I already know I will continue with my Babbel Live classes! I am really excited to do this regularly, and excited to see how I would improve in my Spanish journey. I look forward to the day when I can comfortably chat with my classmates and teacher in Spanish even in breakout rooms!

Dialed in early for my Zoom class!
