It’s easy to fall into the same old stagnant routine — especially when you’re stuck at home with nowhere to go and nobody to see. But rather than allowing yourself to double down on bad habits and boredom, now’s a great time to nurture your mind and enhance your creativity. One way to do so is by learning a new language.
Of all the language-learning apps on the market these days, Babbel is definitely a fan favourite. With over 10 million users worldwide, it’s earned an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars on the Google Play Store and 4.6 out of 5 on the App Store. Students love its user-friendliness and short, yet valuable bite-sized lessons. It was even named Fast Company’s “most innovative company in education” a few years back.
So, what makes Babbel so beloved? First, you can choose from over a dozen different languages to learn at any given time, including Italian, French, Portuguese, Dutch, Polish, and Russian. And no matter how busy you are, you can dive in completely on your own time and fit the quick 10 to 15-minute lessons (from beginner to advanced) into your schedule.
Then, of course, there’s the content itself. Babbel covers a lot of real-life topics (think transportation, dining, or directions) that you’ll actually use if you ever travel abroad — you know, rather than a bunch of random vocabulary terms. It also uses speech recognition technology to ensure you’re pronouncing words accurately, so you sound more like a local and don’t embarrass yourself on your next vacay. Another helpful feature is offline accessibility. You can download your courses, lessons, and review items beforehand and access them later regardless of your WiFi situation.
Just in time for the new year, you can snag a lifetime subscription to Babbel’s top-rated language-learning app for it’s lowest price yet — £131.66 (normally £294).
