The first language-learning app to connect learners with native speakers worldwide is now downloaded an average of 25,000 times a day, meeting growing global demand for mobile learning.

busuu’s mobile app allows users to learn up to 11 languages and connect to over 35 million native speakers in its global language-learning community. The top three languages downloaded for learning are English, French and Spanish.

The top three countries by number of downloads are the US, Germany and Russia, although there is also rapid growth in emerging markets such as Brazil, Turkey and China. 

Interaction with native speakers is an important part of successfully learning a new language, so busuu’s huge, active community is a key feature. Via the app, users connect to native speakers by completing writing exercises and submitting these for feedback and corrections. They can then do the same in return, acting as a tutor of their own mother tongue.

Since the beginning of 2013, busuu members have completed over 12 million vocabulary exercises via the app. The general shift to mobile learning is further demonstrated by the fact that busuu users now complete 33% more exercises via the app than online. Mobile users now also have the possibility to set a learning goal on their mobile phone in order to track their progress.

The busuu language-learning app is free, with access to 20 learning units (5 for each level). Premium Members of the web version automatically have full access included in their membership.
