What is a placement class?

A placement class is a casual 1-on-1 conversation with a Babbel teacher to help you find your learning level. By asking you some informal questions, the teacher will help you figure out which level and private class to start with in Babbel Live. There’s nothing you need to do to prepare for a placement class.

After your placement class, you’ll get an email with a recommended level and specific Babbel Live private class to start with. You can only book a placement class once.

To book a placement class:

  1. Go to the Live tab on your desktop or mobile device
  2. Choose the Private classes view
  3. Choose an available time with one of the teachers shown
  4. Follow the prompts to book a class at this time with this teacher


The first time you book a private class, the placement class will automatically be selected to help you find your learning level. If you would prefer to skip the placement class and book a normal private class instead, just use the change topic button.
