Whether you're planning the international trip of a lifetime or just trying to connect with your in-laws, learning a language as an adult is just plain hard!
Lucky for us, there's new technology in town that claims to make us feel like kids again (at least when it comes to learning a new language). Babbel is one example — and people are going bananas for this app. It's the top-grossing language learning app out there, and it prides itself on being exciting, immersive and most of all, rewarding.
What happens when you get 100 expert linguists in a room? Well, they develop Babbel (obviously), and create a method that breaks down concepts into 10- to 15-minute bite-sized lessons. That way you can learn quickly and easily, even when you're on-the-go.
The app is even equipped with speech-recognition technology to ensure your pronunciation is on point, personalized review sessions to reinforce what you learn and an offline mode to practice wherever, whenever. In just a month, you'll already be speaking confidently about useful, real-life topics like travel, family, business, and more.
Babbel has over 10,500 reviews with a "great" rating on Trustpilot, and users seriously swear by it! One user wrote:
"I was having trouble understanding my Italian course with a well known college and then I saw an advertisement on TV for Babbel and I checked it out. It was a great decision because Babbel made it very simple and easy to learn. I immediately dropped the college course and haven't regretted my decision since."
A lifetime subscription to Babbel Language Learning usually costs $299, but right now it's 50 percent off at just $149. You can choose between 14 different languages — including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, and more — and return to the training whenever your heart desires.
Want to save a few bucks? You can get a two-year subscription for just $99 — down from $150. You're still able to choose one of 14 different languages, but will only have access to the lessons for two years.
If you feel ultra-confident in your ability to retain information, maybe you only need a one-year subscription, which is just $69 right now — 17 percent off the original retail value of $83. Go and get babbling!
