Although we are a German organization, we are lucky to have fans from all over the globe, coming from different countries and cultures. All of us are united under the BIG banner as one large family, and find that we are all similar in our love for esports and gaming. Through Babbel, our fans will have the opportunity to take their knowledge even further, and learn new languages and words that will bring our community even closer together.
Not only will fans be introduced to the application through which they can learn languages, they will also find new interactive features on the streams of our players and streamers where they can engage with the stream and other fans in an educational way. Make sure to keep an eye out for further information about the activities and offers we will announce as part of our partnership.
Statement Daniel Finkler, CEO
Communication is critical to success in any team sport. We have managed many multinational teams in the past. In all these teams, clear communication between the different nationalities was often a significant challenge, which is still true today. Therefore, I am delighted to have Babbel, one of the leading providers for web-based language learning, as our partner. We will use the app internally with our professionals to support their language learning processes, which ultimately improves our team communication.
Babbel is driven by a mission: Everyone. Learning. Languages. This means building products that help people connect and communicate across cultures. Babbel, Babbel Travel and Babbel for Business use languages in real situations, with real people. And it works: Studies with Yale University, City University of New York and Michigan State University prove its effectiveness. The key is a blend of humanity and technology. More than 60,000 lessons across 14 languages are hand-crafted by 150+ linguists, with user behaviours continuously analysed to shape and tweak the learner experience. From headquarters in Berlin and New York, 750 people from more than 60 nationalities represent all the differences that make humans unique. Babbel is the most profitable language learning app worldwide, with more than 10 million subscriptions sold.
