Mondly helps you master a new language during your lunch break

Get lifetime access to the app for $39.99.

Learning a new language is a great way to explore new cultures. Unfortunately, dry textbooks can make the process really hard work. Mondly takes a different approach to language learning. This award-winning smartphone app helps you master new vocabulary through mini-games and chatbots. You can currently get lifetime learning with one language for $39.99 at the PopSci Shop.

They say the best way to learn a language is through total immersion. If you can’t spend six months abroad, Mondly is the next best thing. This app helps you learn something new every day and hone your skills with real-world conversations.

Just as a friend would teach you new words by pointing out objects, Mondly uses picture quizzes to build your vocabulary. The app also delivers audio from native speakers, meaning you become familiar with the accent.

Once you have the basics down, Mondly gets you to complete sentences and participate in simulated chats. This helps you practice using words and phrases in context. The lessons take only a few minutes each day, but you make rapid progress.

Lifetime access to one language is now just $39.99 (worth $239). You can also upgrade to three languages for $59.99 (worth $719) or five languages for $69.99 (worth $1,199).
