Many language courses involve a lot of reading and writing, which is fine if you plan to live in another country. But for most people, the goal is being able to talk to the locals on a vacation or business trip. Babbel Language Learning helps you start speaking faster, with lessons based around everyday vocabulary. You can currently get lifetime access to all 14 language courses for just $159.
With content developed by over 100 expert linguists, Babbel is one of the best language learning apps around. This platform has been designed to help you start speaking any language after one month of daily practice.
Babbel courses start by teaching you some everyday vocabulary through fun picture quizzes. Every time you see a word, you hear a native speaker say it out loud. Babbel then asks you to repeat what you hear, and the app uses speech recognition technology to grade your accent.
Lessons take between 10 and 15 minutes each day, covering a variety of topics. You can access Babbel on desktop and mobile, with offline access to all 10,000 hours of content.
Worth $399, lifetime subscriptions are now only $159 only at the PopSci shop.
