Babbel Wins at eureleA 2011

Posted on March 9, 2011 by

EureleA Winner

The European Award for Technology Supported Learning (eureleA) is a prize awarded once a year for “outstanding examples of teaching and learning through digital media”. The jury had more than 70 submitted projects to choose from – and we’ve won. The eureleA prize for the “Best Technical Implementation” has gone to Babbel.

Technical implementation doesn’t just refer to technology. Emphasis was on innovation, user-friendliness and standards. The jury named Babbel as “an example for usability and applied learning”, and a prototype for how “conventional learning systems can be made more mobile, flexible and user-friendly”.

We’re especially happy to hear this, because it describes a challenge we face every day: how to be innovative and user-friendly at the same time. It’s not enough just to have new ideas, and it’s not enough to technically implement them. We’ve created Babbel for people. We think people from all over the world, from different cultures and generations should feel at home using Babbel. Someone who wants to learn a new language doesn’t want to have to read the instruction manual first.

We are proud of this prize. The eureleA 2011 is an incentive to continue making our conviction a reality: it’s easiest to learn a language when you’re having fun.

Hi Shane. We are having some issues with pictures being referenced on an old server. The issue is most probably on our end; do you remember which posts you were looking at?

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a
few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.

I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or
if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

If I purchase the learn Spanish Babbbel – can it be downloaded on to two computers? as my husband I have separate computers and he often works away from home.

Thank you

Hi Stella,
Thank you for your message. We don’t offer a download client anymore because it produced too many bugs and problems. But if you and your husband use two different PCs, you can simply share the account and log in from whereever you are (with internet connection). For an even simpler solution I’d suggest to purchase another course pass. That way both of you can learn at the same time without interfering with your vocabulary accounts.
