Learn A Whole New Language For The New Year With These Apps

This piece was written by the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.

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.

That's why this holiday season is the perfect time to get your fluency on with one of these two apps. And remember to enter the MERRY15 code at checkout for an additional 15 percent off!

Most language teaching programs use rote memorization and flashcards to pile-drive the language into your brain. Mondly takes a different approach. By using state of the art speech recognition software, it tailors its feedback directly to your speech to correct minor pronunciation problems. It literally listens to you talk and tells you exactly how to improve.

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.

uTalk Language Education -- Lifetime Subscription

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.
