While our devices are getting smarter about translating between languages, even using our voices, learning a language still has profound benefits for your mind, career, and personal growth. It's never been a better time to learn a new language, and a lifetime subscription to top-rated language learning app Babbel is just $199, 60% off the MSRP.
First arriving in 2007, Babbel has consistently been one of the top apps in its category, with a 4.7 out of 5 stars in the App Store across 227,000 reviews, as well as a 4.5 out of 5-rating on the Google App store with nearly 600,000 reviews. It's even top-ranked in the Futurism store as well. It has over ten million users, offering 14 different languages.
Why is it so popular? Babbel focuses on conversational day-to-day skills, broken out into 10 to 15-minute lessons, that help you build proficiency and get a handle on a language. Designed by expert linguists, Babbel's lessons are built around realistic situations you'll run into, like shopping or asking directions. Each course is geared towards your first tongue and your personal interests, keeping lessons engaging. And it uses human voices, with natural conversation from native speakers in the language you want to learn, to help you pick up on the nuances and style of how a language is spoken.
Babbel is also easy to stick with. You regularly review what you've learned to keep your skills at their best and better retain vocabulary. And it's available across devices, so whether you're on your laptop or on the go, you can always fit in a lesson during some downtime at work, on your commute, or between episodes of a binge session.
The lifetime subscription grants you access to all 14 languages across an unlimited number of devices. And, for a limited time, it's 60% off, just $199. If you want to study a new language with a friend, you can also purchase a 2-pack of lifetime subscriptions for $358.
It's rare that a lifetime subscription is this low, so if you want to sharpen your mind, advance your career, or just have some fun, now's the time to dive into a new language.
