It’s finally here — a new look for busuu!
Over the past month, we’ve been working on something very special: an all-new look for our courses! We’ve listened to your suggestions, added some cool ideas of our own and poured it all into what could be the biggest update in busuu history.

Why did we do it?
We wanted to make your learning experience even better by improving one of the core parts of our app: the "Learn" tab. We’ve now given you the ability to jump straight into where you left off by pressing on the “Next up” button. It’s now even easier to track your progress by being able to clearly see your overall progress through each lesson. And we’ve polished it all off with stunning imagery and some rather fancy animations.

Slow down there, cowboy! We’ve released the new look only for the individual apps available for the English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese course, which can be downloaded from the App Store. This is a good way for us to get feedback and make sure it’s working well before we roll it out everywhere. If you happen to be an Android or web customer, then you’ll have to be patient and wait a little longer. However, if you do get a chance to check it out, we would love to hear what you think about it!

Curious to see it for yourself? The updated look is currently available for you to try on our Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian and English apps. If you already have one of these on your device, just update the app!

With this new exercise type, we’ve added voice to our tremendously popular writing exercises, now renamed “Conversations”.

Members of our wonderful community will then give you feedback on your exercise by talking or writing back. You can have whole conversations within threads of written and spoken replies.

Because we believe language is about conversation, busuu is the first language learning app in the world to offer spoken conversations with native speakers.

With this new exercise type, we’ve added voice to our tremendously popular writing exercises, now renamed “Conversations”.

Members of our wonderful community will then give you feedback on your exercise by talking or writing back. You can have whole conversations within threads of written and spoken replies.

We can't wait to hear you speak!

You can now friend other busuu learners you’ve interacted with, keep in touch with them and learn together. Send your Writing exercises to your friends for correction or have a look in the “Friends” feed in Help Others to see what the Writing exercises they have submitted. Get and give back!

You can now add other busuu learners as friends from their profile, by tapping on “Add friend”.
