C-3PO is fluent in over six million forms of communication, and he's just a robot built by a little brat in a giant sandbox. You're a fully grown human being, with all kinds of organs and bones and stuff, and how many forms of communication do you know? And before you say two, you should be aware that "badly dubbed Russian superhero movie" does not count as its own language.

Most language teaching programs use rote memorization and flashcards to pile-drive the language into your brain. Mondly takes a different approach.

It also sports a full cast of professional voice actors who use a conversation-based curriculum, teaching you practical language far faster than most programs. If you're using the app on an Android device, there's even a VR mode you can check out. It's like learning languages in the future.

A lifetime subscription to a five-language pack is normally $1,199.75, but you can get one right now for just $69.99. Nice.

The big perk of uTalk is that its language program helps you understand how native speakers talk and focuses on vocabulary that will actually serve a purpose in real life. (Sorry, but how often have you found yourself asking "Which way is the library?") You'll also be rewarded with achievements as you progress, like a video game, except you're leveling up your ability to understand other humans and explore the world. So while you still won't be C-3PO, you'll definitely be closer to his level, and that's all any of us can ever hope for.

Normally $389.94, you can buy a lifetime subscription to uTalk Language Education right now for just $29.99.

You don't need a Thesaurus to improve your vocabulary. Owls Are Stupid, but you're not.
