This way of learning is excellent. It allows you to go at your own pace and when you have a problem you can go over the lesson as many times as it takes to learn it. The fact that you can interact with people who speak the language you are trying to learn is just great. A great site.

After 7 days trial on Premium package I has become a Premium member and enjoy an access to all the facilities. Now Busuu is a part of my life. It is truly amazing how you can get in touch with the native speakers worldwide and make friends. I believe Busuu community is a champion in getting all the nations together.

I am always motivated to continue my study on Busuu and the volunteer help I receive from others in your community is very helpful and heartwarming. You have a very well constructed site in which it is easy to spot those who are serious about their studies and those who are only occasional users.
