Educational Potential
It’s an app for learning languages.

The method is flexible, practical and sometimes it’s like a game. It can evaluate also the spelling. It could be useful as a complement for languages classes.

The app adapts itself to the level of the user and the topics that they are interested. It adapts the time for the leisure hours of the user. It also detects the weak points of the user to adapt the exercices.

There aren’t potential risks in this app.
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
It could be used instead of paper exercices for teaching languages. Students can use it at home and talk about the results in classroom.

I have used this app myself and would like to have it used by teachers. It is fun to learn a language with it. Even better so with a teacher guiding.

As I mainly teach in English, I recommend my students to improve their English language skills on a regular basis and give them hints which are the most appropriate tools to be used, whereas Babble Mobile is one of them.

Great tool to learn foreign language in a flexible and self-determined way.
