You Deserve a Reward!


One of the best ways to keep your motivation levels high is to reward the hard work and effort that you’re putting into your learning. In this post we’ll give you some ideas about how you can use goals, rewards and incentives to keep you learning more throughout 2014.


Watch your garden grow

Here at busuu we reward you for all of your learning with busuu-berries and gifts for your garden. The berries can be used to make your busuu garden look even more amazing, and that’s something to really be proud of. Take a look at the shop, decide on a gift you want to buy for your garden and then work hard to get enough berries for that gift. If you want some extra motivation you can even set yourself a time limit.

Goals and certificates

We know how important it is to set your learning goals. You should make a plan of what you want to achieve and how much you want to study each day. It’s important to be realistic when you decide your goals though; a manageable goal is a far better motivator than an unmanageable one! And for all Premium users, when you finish a level on busuu you will get a busuu certificate to show for all your hard work and achievement.

Real world rewards

Gifts, berries and certificates are all well and good, but sometimes you just want some chocolate! So why not give yourself real-world rewards for your language learning. These can be for completing an hour of study, or maybe for learning 50 new words and phrases. If you set your own goals you can also set your own rewards!

20% discount

And as an extra incentive from busuu we’re giving a 20% discount on Premium Memberships until the end of the month. This means you will have access to all the grammar units, recording exercises, certificates and more. Get your 2014 of language learning off to the perfect start with busuu Go and a Premium Membership.


  1. I would love to upgrade to Premium, but I will be off line until Feb 1st. Therefore I cannot use the website until then. Can I upgrade in February?

      Thank you for your message. Sure you can always upgrade to Premium. However the busuu Go promotion is only available until the 31st of January.

  2. Dear friends,

    I have a great desire to learn Spanish and also perfect my Swahili. However I am a busy person and can only afford 30 – 60 minutes a day at best. Questions

    (1) is my time affordability practical
    (2) how much are the courses available
    (3) probably better to concentrate on one language at a time

    • Hello Alan Wilson,

      Thank you for your message.
      In terms of time if you can learn between 30 to 60 minutes everyday it’s great. To register with busuu is free ( however if you would like to access the Premium features which will help you learn faster an in a more efficient way you can check the different Premium memberships here Some users prefer to concentrate in only one language whilst others like to learn more than one language. It really depends on what you prefer and how you feel you will learn better. Happy language learning!


  3. So, how much does it cost then and can I access the programme without recourse to passwords which I can never remember/

    • Hello peter Tuite, thank you for your question.

  9. What did you do with, My Garden?
    I use Busuu to help others with English. I don’t like the Spanish Course because it is 100 percent mush mouth Castillian Spanish which drives me nuts… Why no Latin American Spanish?
