For children, learning languages is pretty straightforward. Their little sponge-brains absorb new vocabulary and syntax like it’s water. However, learning a language is pretty hard after childhood unless you have an excellent way to practice. And if you find yourself traveling to a foreign country whose language you don’t know, you’re going to wish you had backup.
But what if you could do both? Right now, a lifetime subscription to Babbel Language Learning is on sale for $199, down from $299. And if you purchase between March 1 and March 15, you’ll automatically get five entries into our “Are You Feeling Lucky?” giveaway with a chance to win airfare for two to anywhere in the world (up to $5,000 in value).
Skip the subtitles. With Babbel, you can learn up to 14 new languages. It’s currently the top-grossing language learning app on the market, and it’s only second to growing up surrounded by the language you’re learning. In addition, the app offers a variety of ways to practice and study, including speech recognition that can identify if your pronunciation is incorrect.
Language instruction starts at various skill levels, with material ready for beginning and advanced learners. You can even get personalized review sessions to reinforce your learning and help the language stick. Similarly, you can choose from different learning topics relevant to your goals or immediate needs.
You aren’t stuck learning how to order dinner in German when you need to ask where the bathroom is. Lessons range in length and intensity, with many 10-15 minute bite-sized lessons that you can fit throughout the day.
You can learn Spanish, French, Italian, German, Swedish, or even brush up on your English. (Of course, you’ll have to try another source for sign language). With a lifetime subscription, you can learn at your own pace, bouncing between languages or focusing on one at a time. Give yourself some time to study, and you can become a regular polyglot!
Pick up a new language or 14 and see how much more you can do. Join the 9% of Americans who can speak a second language fluently (or the 43% of the world population) and learn another language. Get the Babbel Language Learning: Lifetime Subscription (All Languages) for $199 (Reg. $499). You’ll also be entered for a chance to win flights for two with our “Are You Feeling Lucky?” giveaway if you purchase before March 15.
