Steve Martin once said that the French have a different word for everything, but the scary thing is that it doesn't stop there. They also have different sentence structures and grammar rules. Some languages even have their own sounds and letters that you might not even be able to make without devoting specific practice to it. Luckily, scientists have figured out some pretty clever ways to make it easier to learn new languages ... and there are a few different schools of thought as to what the best one is.
Mondly uses state-of-the-art speech recognition technology, and only gives positive feedback (because it knows you're sensitive). Instead of simply giving you dry exercises and boring flashcards, it uses a team of professional voice actors with a conversation-focused curriculum to teach you pronunciation, verb conjugation, and sentence structure. Right now, the Cracked Shop is offering three different kinds of lifetime subscriptions to Mondly classes: a five-language bundle for $69.99 (normally $1,199.75), a three-language bundle for $59.99 (normally $719.85), and a one-language subscription for just $39.99 (normally $239.95).
"Earworm" is the scary-as-heck name for the kind of simple melody that gets stuck in your head, causing you to repeat it nonstop all day. This language app ingeniously employs that quirk of psychology to teach you language by playing catchy songs that teach you an arsenal of useful phrases in Spanish, Italian, French, or German. Normally $40.50, you can grab the Earworms MBT Language Learning Bundle in the Cracked Shop right now for just $14.99.
uTalk teaches you useful, practical phrases in any language you want, and it does it all from your phone. (Because sometimes you need to learn a language on the go.) Lifetime access to the two-language bundle is normally $84.99, but you can grab yours in the Cracked Shop right now for just $19.99.
Rosetta Stone is one of the most advanced and highly trusted language-learning programs on the planet. And it got that way because it employs TruAccent speech recognition technology, capable of analyzing the words you say over 100 times per second. Rosetta Stone will teach you how to shop, order food, and navigate abroad all in a new language. (Good luck if you don't know how to do those things in your current language.) You can buy lifetime subscriptions to programs in U.S. English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, or Mandarin Chinese -- each for $100 off at $199.
