Despite what many undesirable people on the internet will tell you, the world isn't flat, but it sure as hell feels that way these days with how interconnected we are via technology and travel. And really, who wants to be the Ugly American on their Andalusian vacation insisting on speaking in slow, broken English to people who already speak English and just want you to not talk to them like a two-year-old?

Instead, try learning a new language before your travels. With Babbel Language Learning, it's easy, and you can get a lifetime subscription to all 14 languages in the library for an unbelievable price for a limited time. Babbel is the world's top-grossing language learning software, with more than ten million users worldwide, and it’s earned 4.5/5 stars on the Google Play Store and 4.6/5 stars on the App Store. The Next Web calls it "one of the stalwarts of the online language-learning sphere,” while Fast Company named it the "most innovative company in education" in 2016. Basically, you could do worse.

More than 100 expert linguists developed Babbel with a conversational-focused curriculum. Through 10- or 15-minute, bite-size lessons, you'll always find time to practice a new language, even if you have to garble your way through it while you brush your teeth. By zeroing in on practical topics like transportation, dining, shopping, directions, and more stuff your adorably clueless ass will need in a foreign country, you'll be able to speak confidently in as little as one month of regular practice.

Babbel lets you learn at a variety of skill levels, from “how do you say ‘bathroom?’” to “just showing off at this point,” so you can move forward at your own pace, and personalized review sessions reinforce your learning while speech recognition keeps your pronunciation on point. You can even learn offline with downloaded lessons. Languages include Spanish, German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Swedish, Turkish, Dutch, Polish, Indonesian, Norwegian, Danish, Russian, and English. In other words, a whole backpacking tour.

Learn a new language an easier way. Right now, you can get a lifetime subscription to Babbel Language Learning for just $199 (reg. $499). This offer won't last so take advantage now.
