Nobody wants to be the Ugly American overseas, but it doesn't matter how many Canadian flags you affix to your person if you don't at least attempt to speak the local language. Learning a new language is a great skill for anybody to pursue, especially if you have big plans to travel the world one day or do some kind of work that involves meeting people from other countries, like a spy or wandering troubadour.

If you're ready to take that step and learn a new language, Babbel Language Learning is one of the best choices on the market. Babbel has more than 10 million users worldwide who have propelled the app to a 4.5-star rating on Google Play and a 4.6-star on the App Store. The Next Web calls it "one of the stalwarts of the online language-learning sphere," if anybody's using the word "stalwart" to describe you, you must be a big deal.

Babbel was developed in conjunction with more than 100 cunning linguists. After just a month of consistent study, you'll be able to discuss practical topics like transportation, dining, shopping, directions, and more in any of the 24 languages included in Babbel's library. You can practice on your own time with 10- or 15-minute bite-size lessons that conveniently fit into your schedule, enhanced with elite speech recognition technology and personalized review sessions to ensure your learning really sticks. You can learn across all of your devices and even download lessons for offline learning and review.
