After a long hiatus, travel has finally returned, and it’s returned with a vengeance! Travelers are rapidly booking their long awaited international voyages, bringing global exploration and adventure back into full swing. From the breathtaking beaches of Bali, to the majestically illuminated city of Paris, the world is officially a traveler’s oyster once again. And of course, with the return of international travel comes the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new cultural experience. Food, people, history and language are all priorities, but language specifically can be your key to unlocking a level of cultural adventure that far exceeds any trip you’ve ever taken before.

Start speaking a new language with confidence

If you’re interested in learning a new language, you may have heard of Babbel, the premium, subscription-based language learning platform. If you haven’t, settle in and read on to get the scoop on this bestselling method. Babbel is an entertaining, flexible language app that provides quick results, according to tens of thousands of users. One testimonial reads, “An addictively fun and easy way to learn a new language or brush up on language skills!” The reason it can be so “fun and easy” while also being effective is the way that lessons are created. Babbel has over 150 linguistic experts crafting short yet effective lessons that can be worked into any schedule. You can squeeze in a 10-minute lesson each day, right? That’s like one Instagram check, and it’s time better spent than falling into a black hole of TikTok videos.

And now, you can even start learning while saving a few dinero. Babbel is offering up to 60% off subscriptions that are fit to service everyone from beginners to well-practiced conversationalists. C’est magnifique! Users have reported that Babbel’s bite-size lessons actually enabled them to start conversing in a new language in just three weeks. “You’re learning without even knowing you’re learning,” says one user. “I went from phrases to sentences to conversations in just weeks.” Fourteen different languages are offered at Babbel, and real instructors are behind the teaching, which makes a huge difference in instructional quality. (Some other language apps actually use AI instead of real humans!)

Babbel also has live online class options that prep you for real-life conversations. Babbel Live’s virtual online classes give you interactive experience with native speakers and are now being offered for 65% off on their site. That’s right: real people, in real time.
