[Known Issue] Wrong Speech Recognition Language


On the 11th of May, we became aware of an issue with Speech Recognition in the Android app. When a learner switches to learning a different language, Speech Recognition continues to listen for the original language. This causes silly and frustrating errors like the one shown above.

After switching to a new language, learners can restart the Babbel app to reset Speech Recognition, they can do so by following these steps: 

  • Settings
  • Apps
  • Babbel
  • Force Stop  
  • Reopen Babbel app 

We understand that this is not a solution and only a work-around, we are working hard to find a permanent solution for future app versions.
