It’s finally here — a new look for busuu!


Over the past month, we’ve been working on something very special: an all-new look for our courses! We’ve listened to your suggestions, added some cool ideas of our own and poured it all into what could be the biggest update in busuu history.

Why did we do it?

We wanted to make your learning experience even better by improving one of the core parts of our app: the “Learn” tab. We’ve now given you the ability to jump straight into where you left off by pressing on the “Next up” button. It’s now even easier to track your progress by being able to clearly see your overall progress through each lesson. And we’ve polished it all off with stunning imagery and some rather fancy animations.

Let me try it!

Slow down there, cowboy! We’ve released the new look only for the individual apps available for the English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese course, which can be downloaded from the App Store. This is a good way for us to get feedback and make sure it’s working well before we roll it out everywhere. If you happen to be an Android or web customer, then you’ll have to be patient and wait a little longer. However, if you do get a chance to check it out, we would love to hear what you think about it!

Curious to see it for yourself? The updated look is currently available for you to try on our Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian and English apps. If you already have one of these on your device, just update the app!

Stay tuned, more improvements are coming soon.
