I paid for 3 months, got access for only one. No response to email. Would advise signing up for one month only with no automatic renewals!

Here is a screen shot of the advertising that has been plaguing my Babbel learning experience. Please check with the history on this problem - I have reported this problem several times now. So far, I do not have recognition from ANYONE AT BABBEL COMPANY that advertising to existing customers is even happening. First, please acknowledge that your company is advertising for new business to existing customers. I do not like this. I have paid my money and I am using the program.

Amazing product! Had always wanted to learn Spanish, so I bought Babbel and started in their beginner courses. The lessons teach you everything you need to know to speak Spanish. I've had some great conversations with my Spanish friends -- can't wait to keep learning!

I found this website and loved it, so I paid the fee and signed up. I got he first lesson under my belt, and was anxious to move on. When I logged on the next day it asked me if I wanted to continue, or start at the beginning again, I chose to continue. But while I pushed the "continue" button, it kept bringing me back to the beginning. When I contacted online support, they instructed me to remove and reinstall the app, so I did. And started at the beginning again. Once I finished the first lesson, and it asked me if I wanted to continue, I pressed continue. And it took me to the beginning again I give up. Got a refund and will try something else.
