I tried out Babbel for Portuguese. It first asked if I was a beginner
or advanced student (I hit beginner). It didn’t seem to care however,
and immediately asked me to match words with phrases— (this was
before any sort of lesson!). I went through the lesson and by the end,
it finally asked me to register. Once I registered, the lesson
restarted, this time with a learning of the vocabulary words. There
was also a setting to use the microphone. I then explored the website.
It looks like without paying, I have access to one free lesson in each
category, vocab, grammar, culture, specials, and writing. Sadly, one
free lesson isn’t really helpful if I want to learn a language.
