Babbel is a leader in language learning software worldwide. There are numerous reasons why educators choose Babbel for their language software needs. One of the main reasons teachers choose Babbel is its portability. Babbel can be used across a wide variety of devices. This is especially beneficial in education because students often have different devices that they use in the classroom, to do homework, etc. Instead of being tied down to one system, for instance, Windows or Mac, Babbel allows users to use almost any system they are comfortable with. In this post, we’ll discuss the system requirements for Babbel and provide instructions on how to get the program running on your device. Note: Students, teachers, and staff are eligible for education discounts on Babbel at www.studica.com. School and classroom offerings are also available.
Babbel App System Requirements
The interesting thing about Babbel is that there is no installation process. Any time that you access Babbel, you are accessing it through a website, essentially. This means that you don’t need a lot of hard drive space or discs to install the software with. Regardless, there are still some minimum requirements to be aware of. These requirements come from Babbel’s system requirements page.
www.babbel.com runs on all modern computers with a current internet browser. Minimum requirements are:
- Computer and Processor: Display: 1024×768 or higher resolution monitor, 1GHz Processor, 1GB RAM
- Operating System: Windows 7 or above, Mac OS X 10.12 or above
- Internet browser with the current Adobe Flash-Player (Chrome version 58 or above, Internet Explorer version 11 or above, Firefox version 50 or above, Safari version 10 or above, Edge)
