No matter how tense or moody, we tackle all the verbs at bab.la!

The bab.la conjugation tool has been growing quite nicely in the last few months. We started with Romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese) along with German, English, Dutch and Polish a few years back. Those proved to be popular products as conjugation is usually one of the trickiest parts when it comes to learning a language.

English speakers may think that this is a joke; just add an ‘s’ at the third person singular in the present tense, some -ed for the past except for a few exceptions, all in all nothing undoable.

Fools! Not all languages are as minimalistic as English! Romance languages have different forms at all tenses and all persons. German can add endless syllables. (Have you met entgegengegangen?) Polish has even a different form whether the referred person is male or female. Conjugation is a nightmare.

Fortunately, bab.la is here and willing to wrestle in the darkness of conjugation to make it easy for you 🙂 Yes, that’s how hardcore we, language lovers, are!

So we have added some more languages to our range of skills.

We now have Swedish conjugation. Did you know that Swedish conjugation is almost as easy as English conjugation? You should look into learning Swedish.

We then added Russian conjugation. Much harder than Swedish. You should ALWAYS have a look at it before writing anything.

Finally, our latest addition is the Finnish conjugation. If you think Finnish and Swedish are kindred language, think again! Finnish is completely different and looks like an alphabet soup.

That’s it for now, but we keep on working and we will be adding more languages very soon!
