Learn a new language online for free or with a Premium service from only 4.99€ per month
Having read about Busuu.com in a Spanish mag, we got in touch with them to see how their online language site works. Busuu offers two types of membership: Basic and Premium. The Basic service offers 150 vocabulary units, the chance to use “busuutalk” and to take part in online discussions.
The part of the business that here at MoneySaverSpain we thought would be of interest is that as part of Busuu’s online community it gives you the chance to practise online your new language skills with native speakers or just to get in touch with other students who’ll be going through a similar experience to yourself. So, without paying a cent you can get a taster of a new language and then decide whether to take it further.
If you want to take your language learning up a notch, then by using their Premium service the rates are extremely favourable when compared with a traditional language school. The rates are on a sliding scale, depending on the number of months that you subscribe for:
- 1 month 15.99€
- 3 months: 12.99€ per month – total 38,97€
- 6 months: 9.99€ per month – total 59.94€
- 12 months: 5.99€ per month – total 71.88€
- 24 months: 4.99 per month – total 119.76
The Premium service includes more than 3000 phrases, audio comprehension exercises, podcasts and much more.
By the way, in case you’re wondering where the name Busuu comes from, on Busuu.com the founders Adrian and Bernhard tell us that apparently it’s a language spoken in Cameroon by around 8 people.
