TL;DR: As of May 12, you can get a lifetime subscription to all languages on Babbel Language Learning for just $199 instead of $499 — that’s a price drop of 60%.
You can’t put a price tag on knowledge. But if you could, $199 for a lifetime of language learning ain’t too shabby.
This weekend, you can still get a Babbel Language Learning lifetime subscription for just $199 — that’s 60% off its usual cost of $499 and $100 less than its typical sale price. But act fast, as this price drop is only available until May 15th.
With a lifetime Babbel subscription, learners get access to all 14 of the core languages on the world’s top-grossing language learning app. You can pick and choose which language to start with and eventually work your way through them all — you have a lifetime to do so, after all. The bite-sized lessons are taught in quick, 10- to 15-minute chunks that you can pencil into your schedule whenever you have free time. The app is designed to fit language learning seamlessly into your daily routine — which is why it’s one of our top picks.
Babbel’s claim to fame is its real-life conversational skills taught by actual native speakers in your new tongue. You’ll cover concepts, words, and phrases you’re likely to use in real life — from shopping and dining to asking for directions or chatting about family and friends. As our friends at PCMag (which is owned by Mashable’s publisher, Ziff Davis) put it, “It’s not a cookie-cutter course for each language, the way many of its competitors are.”
You’ll work through games, podcasts, and other exercises to learn the language of your choosing, then get tested on your growing communication skills with Babbel’s speech-recognition technology. The app puts emphasis on correct pronunciation, so you won’t embarrass yourself if and when you decide to use your new skills in real life.
With personal review sessions, offline accessibility, and lifetime mobile and desktop access available, a Babbel subscription is well worth its price — especially when it’s on sale for 60% off.
