"Learning English with your Android device"

Reviewed by / Aug 26, 2013

Browse through the units and do the exercises

Learn English with busuu.com is an android application based on the website with the same name, in which you can practise your English from a beginner level to an advanced intermediate level.

In the main menu, you can choose to start a Course by tapping on Course Selection. Then, you can choose the level and start with the units. Each unit has 3 sections: the first one, with pictures and small explanatory texts about the main topic, a dialogue between people and some questions regarding it and finally a review, in which you can answer questions that cover everything you've seen in the previous sections. You can also choose to listen to the text instead of reading it, or doing both at the same time.

Back to main menu, you can continue your course right where you left it or choose to overview the mistakes you made during the tasks you were given, which is rather useful.

The main disadvantages of this learning application are the following two: firstly, in tablet devices you can't see the complete questions: you only see a part of them and it's kind of hard to do some of the exercises. Second of all, some of the units are paid features and you need to buy them on the market, so not everything's free. Finally, some of the exercises don't make sense, as it asks you to match a sentence with its translation and all the sentences are in English.

Useful application for English learners, but it should be fixed for those using a tablet and some of the exercises should be reviewed. Maybe they could add an extra level for kids who don't know anything about English but like to play around with their parent's devices.

This method works! But don’t take our word for it, check out some of our recent reviews:

“Better then Rosetta Stone!
This app is better then any other program not only because it offers the best ways to learn a language, it allows people to speak to native speakers. This program is huge and allows a person to learn at their own pace. The cost of this program seems like it should be 200, but is offered for less then a x-box game. I have used it for over 2 years now and I can say it is the best.”

“Highly recommend!
I have tried so many language learning apps on here and this one really is the best. I generally refuse to spend money on in-app purchases but this is well worth paying foe the full version. Definitely 5 stars. If you want to learn a language then this is the app to download!”

“Definitely the best language training application”

"This application is really great to learn. I love the correction by natives, practising with native speakers for free. Super app”

"This is better than my Rosetta Stone Spanish! It is more fun and it is free as opposed to the 500 plus dollars I paid for RS. I highly recommend this app!!"

"The application is simply super, languages are taught like a game! Very helpful comments from other users on your exercises. Bought a Premium package without hesitation!"

    The instruction language of the app is always the language of your Android settings. This is why the app "Learn English with busuu.com!" does not make sense, if the language of your Android is also English.

    I love this app, I've been learning italian and it's been a great tool. I subscribed to their yearly plan, which I thought was fairly priced. The only issue is that to use the parts I paid for I have to get out of the app and completely close it. This is just about every time I want to use one of the paid features. But, besides that there are no issues
