The Babbel Story

In 2007 we didn't enter the online language learning market -- we started it.

Since then, one challenge drives us: Everyone learning languages. Why? Because we understand the power of language. How it builds confidence, connects people, solves real-life problems, and opens doors.

From the humble beginning of four entrepreneurs working on a side hustle, we made Babbel into the world’s top-grossing language-learning app with millions of paying subscribers. Fast Company awarded us “The world’s most innovative education company.”

Being first was just the beginning. Today, we’re not only a part of the online language learning market - we lead it. Join us and help us stay there.
