TLDR: Babbel Language Learning and its world-renowned language training system is now 40 percent off.
If you’re looking to stay sharp or to help keep the mind of someone you know and love honed and focused, you might want to seriously consider plunging into some language learning. A new study found older adults who studied Spanish showed cognitive improvements even if they didn’t become fluent in the language. In fact, the results for those learners were the same as the results for those who took a series of targeted brain training activities to improve those skills.
It’s further proof of what we’ve known for a while: language learning is a brain booster. Right now, you can get in on all that souped-up brain juice with a lifetime subscription to the Babbel Language Learning system. It’s also available now at one of its best prices of the year, just $199, a savings of 60 percent off from TNW Deals.
Babbel has become one of the most proven ways to dive into language learning and come out with fluent knowledge. Backed by over 10 million users worldwide, Babbel holds a solid cumulative 4.6 out of 5 star rating from almost 1 million reviews from Google Play and Apple App Store users.
That’s because after 15 years of crafting curriculum with an expert team of more than 100 linguists and instructors, Babbel knows their stuff. Learners can pick one of 14 different languages to study ranging from tentpoles like Spanish, French, and German, to more exotic options like Polish, Swedish, or Turkish.
With a selection made, Babbel guides students into their techniques for contextual learning, feeding learners new vocabulary and grammar direction in real world circumstances, which help the brain interpret and better remember the training. Lessons are delivered in short, easily digestible 10 to 15 minute sessions that not only fit into any schedule, but remain hyper focused in one select idea, further embedding the new found knowledge.
Augmented with a series of games, podcasts, articles, videos, and even live online classes, Babbel’s personalized lessons even incorporate speech recognition technology to actually listen to students speak their new language while serving up important guidance to shore up any areas that need some extra attention. Babbel claims they can get most students who put in the work fluent in their new language in as little as three weeks.
“I seriously love this app!…Babbel teaches me Spanish in a completely different style, it makes learning seem super easy and fun…I HIGHLY recommend,” said one happy Babbel reviewer.
Regularly $499, new users can dive into a lifetime subscription to Babbel Language Learning at a savings of $300, 60 percent off, to bring the cost of learning a new language to just $199.
