At http://babbel.com we decided to make a 'Happy New Year' video celebrating the many languages spoken at Babbel and within our Kiez here in Berlin. We started with the employees and collected some twenty different languages. Then the New Year video production went a little viral and friends of friends of colleagues began sending us videos. We ended up with over thirty different ways of saying 'Happy New Year'! The video was enormous fun to make, and we thank all of those involved. As it says in the video, you're all legends! Stay tuned for our next collaborative project. Happy New Year to you all!
Babbel Insights present you with an entertaining look into the idiosyncrasies of languages, from quirky German animal names to the delights of Brazilian football expressions. We'll keep producing these little journeys on a regular basis, so keep checking back on our channel or with this playlist to catch up on any new additions.
Babbel is an online learning system that is especially designed for the acquisition of languages. You can try out some free courses here: http://goo.gl/RwMWn0 In this set of videos we've transferred a little of the interactivity of our courses into YouTube videos in order to give you a taste of what's in store should you decide to continue learning languages with us when you've completed the video.
The advantages of learning languages are manifold, but it is often difficult to find the time to study. Our aim is to provide you an intuitive, enjoyable way to acquire a language, even if you haven't had much prior experience of language learning and fear you would struggle to fit it into your busy day. Give Babbel a go on desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile. It goes where you go and adapts to your needs to make language learning as simple and enjoyable as possible.
