German company creates the best application

Why is Babbel such a great app for teaching new languages? BelénCaeiro directs Babbel’s product marketing and explains the secrets to the success of this application.

The idea of ​​learning a new language online may seem odd at first glance. Because the concept of school lessons forms a way to understand learning with a pencil in hand with a notepad open.

However, when you graduate from school, you do not have to fit into a regular study schedule in a large group, and you stumble into your daily life.

When I recently flew to Poland over the weekend, I realized how uncomfortable it was to not know Polish. It was so embarrassing that I couldn’t say thank you. Fortunately, my reaction was clear. This is my phone with the Babbel application.

Why Babel is very good at teaching a new language. To answer this question, I spoke with the multilingual Belem Cairo. Belén is responsible for marketing at Babbel, and he truly knows the app. She explains why online language learning with Babbel is so effective.

Babel’s secret material is based on three pillars
Belem thinks she was a lucky girl. Her parents helped her get her international education in her childhood.

Before coming to Berlin, he lived in Spain, Singapore, the Philippines, the United States, and the Netherlands.
First Pillar: All Babbel revolve around painting

“We are learning a new language associated with it. To make this possible, our products have some special characteristics,” explains Belem.

He opens the Babbel application on his computer and displays all available courses and classes. “Babel is building language learning based on related topics.

Depending on the language you are learning, Babel can find cultural characteristics and the most frequent topics of conversation from scratch. Use of public transport, order food, wish list At the top of.

Belén points out that the orientation is easy because all the learning content is relevant. However, if you only want to check one topic, you can start with what you like. Belén clicks the microphone icon by clicking the next section.

“We are always optimizing our products using user feedback. Thanks to our customer service, and thanks to the meetings we host, we have found that users want to train their pronunciation. Our products support speech recognition.”

Online language learning using Babbel is also based on trial and error learning exercises that display examples such as white text in a suitable way. Bethlehem explains the principle.

“Babel simulates the process of a real conversation by a so-called conversation coach. It’s like swimming in a swimming pool in the sky. In this way, new vocabulary is incorporated and practiced in naturally used idioms.
Belem concludes that even the way we teach grammar is ultimately based on the focus of the conversation.

Therefore, the products Babbel offers are designed to allow users to communicate as quickly as possible in real life. Compared to other applications, Babbel isn’t too focused on entertainment. Babbel doesn’t offer any aspect of the game that makes other apps more enjoyable.

“But this is our definite decision,” explains Belem.
“We want our students to leave their cell phones and experience their language success in real life.”
Mr. Belem emphasizes: “I think this person and experience is a much bigger motivator than a more engaging screen. This is why users continue to learn again.”

Second pillar: our experts are people, not machines
Babel is known for 150 language learning experts who are dedicated to teaching new languages ​​and cultures. All professionals are multilingual and most are already taught in schools, colleges and evening classes.

They are facing new challenges, such as teaching French to a colleague for three weeks and learning sign language for a month.
These strange thoughts should not be mocked under any circumstances. Even our experts are happy to be able to overcome new obstacles well.

Thus, this is the main purpose of these acrobats of the language: they themselves can return to the student’s position. Only when we learn, we understand what’s really useful to learn.

“Our trained professionals are the driving force behind our products. We trust this quality assurance to prepare each course according to our native language and learning language.”

The linguistic knowledge that distinguishes Babbel products is based on linguistic similarities between languages. For example, French are more closely related to Italian, so there are more similarities than between French and German. Belem sees this similarity as a “shortcut” to learning.

“With Babbel, we can learn effectively because language experts can accurately understand these shortcuts and integrate them into our products.”
Belén also points out that the shortcut keys u

sed in the product are showing their effectiveness in learning.
Third pillar:

learning methods are popular thanks to user-centric design
Learning a language online using Babbel has the advantage that learning is based on you.

Whether you’re a traveler who would stay overnight, Babbel can be accessed anytime from any device of your choice offline, even if you’ve previously downloaded lessons.

“The Babbel subscription system always provides a learning experience,” says Belén.
“You don’t have to unlock exclusive content later because you have the freedom to use the learning materials you need when accessing the product.”

Products are regularly expanded with new learning content from experts, so you can take baked courses.
Belén prides itself on being completely student-centered, not just the product itself, but also its functionality.

“The motivation to learn is the driving force behind the success of the following. So we have developed the ability to personalize the learning content per user.”

Traveling motivates you to learn a new language? Thanks to the Voilà synchronous selector, we already have the right content suggested. “Of course not that alone,” says Belem laugh. With Babbel, you will feel we understand you.

“We know exactly what current (trigger) is required to succeed in learning.”
In this case, the regeneration system plays a central role.

You have to learn new vocabulary, and run it over and over again using longer time intervals. The playback system does it automatically! You can add your own vocabulary as a user.

What lies beneath: meet the real life metal detectorists

Tales of rare finds, Instagram stories, and, of course, that hit TV comedy means metal detecting is buzzing. Today’s detectorists reveal what they love about it

Lucie Gray, 31, Lincolnshire

Set up Roman Found on Instagram

We almost started it as a joke in the garden during lockdown. My cousin, Ellie, bought a metal detector for herself and then I got my hands on it – and she never got it back! It was something fun to do when we really couldn’t do a lot. I’d always had this interest in history since I was a young child as I grew up metal-detecting with my dad.

It’s a bit unique how we do it together: I find the targets, then Ellie digs the hole and excavates the find out. We were addicted after the first coin we found: which was a 1947 halfpenny. I think metal detecting is sometimes labeled as geeky or nerdy. But when you try it, you realize those labels don’t actually mean anything if you’re enjoying yourself.

Metal-detecting is now much more in the public eye, with shows like Detectorists. When we saw that there was a community on Instagram, we started our own page, Roman Found, which now has more than 55,000 followers. We’ve got a TikTok page and a YouTube channel, too. I think the popularity of our accounts probably comes down to the curation and the attention to detail: we’re both designers and we try to tell the stories of our finds by filming each one. Metal detecting is really good for my mental health, too. I’m neurodivergent, and being able to focus on one task is something I have struggled with. But metal-detecting is impossible if you’re not focused on the task, so it really makes me feel present at the moment and stops my mind from wandering into places it shouldn’t.

I’ve learned a lot of patience and focus. When I first started metal-detecting I couldn’t do it for more than an hour at a time. Now I’ve built up the stamina to detect all day.

It’s quite funny because I’m the last person people expect to be on TikTok. But we’ve gained so many close friends through social media who we never would have met if it weren’t for metal-detecting.

I research everything we find: I find out what it is, where it came from, and how old it is. It’s addictive. I’ve always had an interest in history and archaeology – and I wanted to be a paleontologist when I was younger.

One of the weirdest things we’ve found were these 1950s empty bottles of cream. We found about 10 of them all in the same place in the middle of this field. Quite early on, we were lucky enough to find a gold Henry VII coin. That was a top moment for us, because you don’t find stuff like that very often.

We’d never be interested in selling anything. We’ll go out for eight to 10 hours, and we might only come back with one silver coin. So, for us, that one silver coin means a lot, because of the work that’s gone into finding it.

I think if we did it separately, there’s no way we’d be out all day. I wouldn’t enjoy it as much either, so it wouldn’t be as much fun or as rewarding. It’s very much a thing we do together – we motivate each other. It’s quite a peaceful space out there, when you’re in the fields.

Unearthed the Winfarthing Pendant

Finding old things is appealing. It’s the wonder of going out and picking up something that no one has touched or even seen for years and thinking: “This could be 1,500 years old!”

When I was about 21, a friend of mine got us permission to go on this farm in Norfolk. We’d got to this one field and we thought: “Well, that looks quite interesting.” Over the next couple of years we went there when we could and built up a collection of bits of brooch, bits of Anglo-Saxon metalwork and buckles.

Before Christmas 2014, I was there on my own one day, detecting to see what Anglo-Saxon metalwork I could find. I got this big deep signal, dug down 2ft, and eventually found the rim of a big bronze bowl. I left it in place, marked the spot and went and spoke to the Norfolk county council’s historic environment service. They came in the January afterwards and excavated the bowl and the area around the find. It had been a high-status burial, which included a stunning golden garnet pendant and gold necklace, and other grave goods.

It went through a coroner’s inquest and was declared treasure. In the end, myself and the landowners, and the museum that wished to acquire it, Norwich Castle, came to an agreement on value. The pendant itself was £140,000, and just over £5,000 for the rest of the assemblage.

I got a quarter of the payout. There was a quarter for me, a quarter for my friend who got us permission, and then half for the landowner. That formed a fair chunk of a deposit on a house after I left university. The find probably gave me some encouragement to go and get into archaeology professionally – I work in commercial archaeology now.

It’s a fun hobby, but one that requires a lot of patience. There are a lot of hours that you’re not finding anything. But if you put the hours in, I’ve found, you’ll eventually get the results.

Took up metal-detecting in retirement

‘It’s great to have a group for women. More than a handful has joined because they’ve been in other groups and had someone mansplain to them’: Ruth Harding. Photograph: Alex Telfer/The Observer

During lockdown, I was sitting around like everybody else. I must have seen something somewhere because I just remember that one day I thought: “Metal-detecting, I’ve always wanted to do it!” I’m retired, I came back to England three or four years ago. I’d been living in Canada for 40 years, and it’s just not a thing there.

I went to my first dig – and I was hooked. In some ways, I think humans are like dogs. Because I always think dogs need a job, even if it’s picking up a stick that’s been thrown.

Researching the detectors was actually a nightmare because there are so many, but I bought one: a Minelab Vanquish 540. I’ve now got a Deus machine, which is one of the lightest metal detectors. For most of us, as we get older, we can’t swing the detector all day. I’ve got one knee replacement and arthritis in the other – kneepads, boots, and gloves need to be upgraded all the time.

In the UK, you need the landowner’s permission to detect on their land – and also that of the tenant, like the farmer if the land is being leased. Because I don’t have permission to detect on anybody’s fields, I go on group digs, where the organizers have secured permission for us to detect on the land in advance. When I first started, I went out practically every week. Now, I tend to do one dig a month, because it can be expensive – many digs are now £20.

I’m in a Facebook group, the Sassy Searchers Ladies Metal-detecting Tribe. It’s great to have a group for women. There are more than a handful who have joined the Sassies because they’ve been in other groups and felt that when they’ve asked questions, they’ve had someone mansplain. We’re very supportive. It’s like a little family.

Recently, I found a hammered Elizabeth I coin – hammered refers to the process used to make them. I keep everything I dig up, even rusty machine parts and bits of lead, and weigh it all in at the scrap yard at the end of the year.

I get out, even if it’s pissing it down with rain. I feel like I’ve been reintroduced to England. I left when I was 25, I spent more than 40 years abroad. I’m going to some areas where I’ve last been 40-odd years ago, and parts of England I’ve never seen before. I wish I’d started detecting years ago. It’s all history, isn’t it? We’re walking over this ground and we have no idea what’s beneath it.

Dave Crisp, 76, Wiltshire

Finder of the Frome Hoard

I’ve been metal-detecting for 35 years, and I’ve never looked back. I’m as passionate now as that first time I went out and started to find what I thought was treasure, but really was just rubbish: the few odd coins and bits and pieces. As soon as I walk across that field, all my troubles disappear.

One week in April 2010, the sun was shining. I was working as a chef in a local hospital and I had two days off. So, I asked the missus: “Is it all right if I go out?” She said: “Yes, go!” Off I went down into Somerset. I had three farms all next to one another where I had permission to detect.

I got a good signal, so I cut a little bit of turf, flapped it back – and there was a silver Roman coin, a siliqua! They don’t come up very often, certainly not for me. I put it into my pouch, not realizing that I would spend the next three hours going round in circles on that field, literally picking up silver coins.

I had to work the next week, but I really wanted to try this field again. So on the way home, I thought: “I’ll pop in for a couple of hours.” I got a signal and, at first, all I could find was this one coin and a bit of black pottery. So, I dug a bit more. I ended up pulling out a big chunk of yellow clay and, studded like little sultanas in a pudding, were bronze coins.

I literally shouted: “I’ve got two hoards!” There was the scattered hoard of siliquas and what is called the Frome Hoard: 52,503 coins in a pot that weighed 160kg in total.

The Treasure Valuation Committee valued the Frome Hoard at about £360,000, which is a payment in recognition that you did the right thing and reported the treasure. Now, it’s in the Museum of Somerset. They have made a fantastic display of it.

I split the money that I was given with the landowner of the field, so we got about £180,000 each. I always say if I’m talking about it: “Well, 180 grand, that’s not bad for three days’ work.” I bought my council house, which I’m still in. My family did well out of it, too. When I pop my clogs, they’ll do better out of it again. It changed my life.

The excitement is still there whenever I go out, even if I have a bad day and I only find rubbish. I just think: “Hey, it’s a bad day, but I’ve been out in the fresh air. I’ve been out in the sunshine. I’ve done a bit of walking, so I’m keeping a bit fitter.” It doesn’t even matter if I don’t find anything.
