busuu’s mobile apps reach 20 million downloads

20million403x403

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.

How many people is 30 million?

If we had our own language, we would have the same number of native speakers as Ukrainian, Hakka (a Chinese language) or Bhojpuri (an Indian language). (source: Wikipedia) Or if busuu.com were a country with a population of 30 million, we would be about the same size as Sudan, Peru, Malaysia or Uzbekistan. (source: Wikipedia)

New iPad app: learn English, for kids!

With the brand new busuu.com iPad app for kids, children will have fun while quickly and easily learning 150 English words. Educate, engage and entertain at the same time!

Our very first language-learning product for children teaches 150 words of English through a carefully structured course of 30 learning units, packed full of exciting educational games. And you can download the basic version for free!

A magical growing garden to reward learning. The busuu.com Kids app can be a shared experience: progress can be monitored at a glance in the child’s very own language-learning garden. Children will be delighted to watch their garden flourish as they learn, motivating them to continue.

Every time the child completes an exercise, a watering can will water a flower in their language garden to make it grow. And each plant holds a secret to discover – their flowers are faces made out of fun vocabulary pictures, created to make the kids laugh!

Stimulating activities, at home or on the go. Colourful illustrations by leading artists and audio recordings by a professional voice actor all create a stimulating and engaging learning environment. There are also plenty of animations to make sure children stay interested. The use of text is limited and all the exercises are clear and self-explanatory, so that they can easily complete the activities without guidance. No need to help – they can amuse themselves and learn wherever they are, whether at home or in the car.
