Busuu is a foreign language learning app that uses written, audio, and visual information to help you learn the language of your choice. Each lesson will guide you through the content with audio from native speakers, scenarios to practice what you have learned, and images relevant to the culture of your target language.

Some basic services are free but additional content requires a subscription to the app’s services. Languages available are: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Polish, Turkish, Russian, and Arabic. Because of the reading and writing component of this app, younger students may need a parent’s assistance.

Busuu  helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Working Memory: Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working. 

Each new lesson presents the content for the day and then guides the user using written and audio medium. Users have to keep the lesson’s content in their mind as they are answering the questions. Whether it is a list of vocabulary or a particular point of grammar, students need to develop their Working Memory skills to move from one lesson in the Busuu app to another. 

Planning: Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals. 

When learning a foreign language it is important to have a plan for what you want to practice how often you want to practice. Busuu helps you keep track of how many days you have been practicing but the user needs to set time aside themselves or set up notifications through the app. This enhances their planning skills because they are in charge of creating their own goals for learning and then monitoring them over time.
