What do you like best?
Busuu, is a solid platform to learn languages, by the first time I used busuu it was one of the most popular platforms to learn english, so I decided to use it and see how it worked, I made a couple of friends and started practicing my english with them, it's pretty social and the way they use to incentivize you is quite unique, they use a virtual garden that grows everytime you pass modules.
What do you dislike?
One of the things that need improvement, is the fact that you can not access all the modules/classes because you need to pay a cost, I understand it's to sustain the platform, but thinking that busuu is a platform to learn around the world and not all the countries have access to the usd currency, it's complicated to keep going because best modules are actually paid.
Recommendations to others considering the product
It's definetly a social way to learn languajes, I've used duolingo as well but I think busuu is still more social, you can make foreign mates easily and find people to practice with on the platform, if you have the oportunity to pay for it, give it a shot and see if it's worth it for a month, then you can decide to keep the premium account or not.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I use busuu to improve my english pronunciation and vocabulary, the fact that you can handle other languages opens business/jobs opportunities. Currently most of the jobs on internet requires knowing more than native language, and I think it's a good idea, because also incentivize you to learn and be an autodidact person.
