Busuu is a language learning website and mobile application based on the theory that it requires just ten minutes a day to learn to speak a new language. Although its free version offers features such as flashcards, writing exercises and corrections from native speakers, its premium option claims that just 22 hours of use equals one college semester of language study.

 

When using the premium version, one of the best features I found was the ability to download lessons that could be accessed offline. This differs from other language learning apps that require internet connection to use, meaning that when on the subway or flying, I was able to access all the content without any problems.

 

I also particularly enjoyed the social aspect of the platform, which uses community forums to chat with fellow learners to help stimulate conversation skills and practice what you’ve learned in real-life situations. For me this is a great feature as you can often feel as though you are learning a language before speaking with someone and realising you don’t know anything. With the community forums, you have the opportunity to test your skills with real people.

 

However, the course can at times feel very structured and formulaic, while lacking the authenticity to fully immerse you in the language. Much of the focus for learning is based on grammar exercises and vocabulary quizzes, rather than on videos featuring native speakers or articles written by language experts. Therefore, as an aid to learning Busuu is very helpful, particularly as it priced very reasonably, yet to get a more authentic experience it may be better to use an alternate method.

Pros
  • Premium version allows you to download lessons to access offline
  • Social aspect lets users speak in forums with fellow learners
  • Reasonably priced
Cons
  • Course is very structured and doesn’t offer much flexibility in learning methods

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
