What is Busuu LMS?

Busuu is a learning management system (LMS) designed to help schools, universities, and corporate businesses create, launch, and manage language training programs for students and employees. It enables educators to manage multiple language courses, interact with native speakers, and track learner’s progress on a unified platform.

The language courses include vocabulary and grammar lessons, audio, translation, or multiple-choice exercises, audio recordings of each vocabulary item, and speech recognition exercises to improve pronunciation and grammar skills. Busuu allows businesses to modify the course content as per business requirements, measure return on investment (ROI), and increase employee retention by offering learning incentives. Learners can also use the conversations feature to practice real-life conversations in various languages such as English, Polish, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and more and receive feedback from native speakers in real-time.

Busuu facilitates integration with Microsoft Teams to facilitate collaborative learning for users and test the understanding of English, German, Spanish, or French. Other features include offline access, user engagement, feedback management, reporting, single sign-on (SSO), and more.

Overview of Busuu LMS benefits

Each language course on Busuu is developed using the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), an internationally recognised standard for creating language lessons. The CEFR is broken down into six stages, ranging from complete beginner to completely fluent. Busuu courses cover the first four stages of the CEFR, from A1 to B2 level.


Completing Beginner A1 means you can: introduce yourself to new friends, order a drink and some food in your new language, ask and answer simple questions on familiar topics, write short texts and fill in a form with personal details.

Completing Elementary A2 means you can: make plans to go out with friends, describe your friends and family, understand the main point of simple texts and conversations, begin to have longer conversations on familiar topics.

Completing Intermediate B1 means you can: describe your favourite films and music, express emotions, agreement and disagreement, begin to understand TV programs when the topic is familiar, have more complex conversations where you give reasons and explanations.

Completing Upper Intermediate B2 means you can: discuss important issues that affect your life, understand the main point and important details in the news, take part in, extended conversations on familiar and new topics, narrate or write a story, describe the plot of a film or a book.
