Can you believe that this smart application can help you speak a language fluently? Unlike the other educating application, Busuu builds its place for being the most trusted language teacher for foreigners. Coming from Busuu Online S. L., Bussu’s original platform was a social network that connected people with the same language interest, and educates them. Then, the application version of the social network debuted on such platforms as Android and iOS. Ever since then, it is reported that there are almost one hundred million users have signed up with the hope of improving their second, or third language.
The effective courses
People come to Busuu to learn new languages. But not all of them know what they should do to improve their knowledge effectively. Thanks to the detail questions in the survey that this application offers, the user can come right to the bottom of their problem. Start with specifying the main goal in learning the chosen language, the user then has to pick the level he wants to achieve. Furthermore, the application allows the user to set the time table for his studying progress, including the days and periods. After the user accomplishes answering the questions in the survey, he can see the data table, which implies his personalized study plan.
Normally, there isn’t any application that offers the user to learn more than one content but, Busuu is different. There are twelve languages for the user to practice, from the most popular ones like English, Spanish, to the least used ones. In addition to that, this application offers multi-language packs for the user to choose, and each pack of language contains several lessons. Every lesson in Busuu contains four key elements, and they are vocabulary, memorize, dialogue, and conversations. The user can swipe through the cards in one lesson to learn new words and phrases. As he’s done with inputting new content to his mind, he can strengthen them by doing a variety of exercises, such as filling the gaps or answering quizzes.
The dialogues are the best practicing parts, as they enable the user to read and listen to words in context. Last but not least, the conversations department gives the user a chance to work with native speakers. In detail, the user will have to complete an exercise by writing or speaking, then the native speakers will correct his work. As the user finishes all the four parts of his learning progress, the application will come up with a report on how much the user has achieved.
Learning with Busuu is incredibly effective because this application knows what each user needs, as everyone has their interest. For example, a learner whose aim is learning for fun and culture will have the chance to approach lessons including cultural elements. If the user wants to achieve the upper intermediate level, he will be facing more challenging lessons and exercises. The application requires the user to study at least ten minutes a day, and ten minutes is enough for it to deliver knowledge in the best way it can.

Busuu encourages its users to make friends by helping others and correcting conversation exercises. This action brings out more positive results than what it looks like. As one user submit his practice (either in writing or audio record) to the system, the other users will find him through the discover feature in the Social tab and give their correction. However, it does not seem like the user must help others with the language he is studying. Busuu allows him to be an expert in the language he uses in the application. For example, if you are getting an explanation for the Japanese words in English, then you can help people who are studying English. You can request people to correct your practice, and the other people can do the same for you. How exciting!
The user can also invite his friends to spread the joys of languages to others. Busuu connects to the two most popular social networks, such as Facebook and Google Plus. Besides, the user can share an invitation through a link to get his friends’ attention.
The mechanics, and more
Busuu provides a friendly interface, with blue and white, which are the main colors of this application. In addition to that, the sensitiveness of every tap in the application’s environment is no joke. The user can firmly switch between tabs, and complete his desired tasks within seconds. There are not many things to talk about the sounds of this application since we cannot expect too many sound effects from an educating application.
However, the user still has the chance to ease his studying progress with the magical ticking sound, which awake his senses whenever he gets bored. Never fail to bring the user from one excitement to another, that’s how Busuu does!
