Obviously, being able to truly immerse yourself in a language is the best way to learn, and being able to surround yourself with a community of language speakers also helps. Barring that, though, there are some good apps out there that can really work to give you some language skills, and Babbel is one of them. Online or as an app, it makes language learning convenient. The price is a steal compared to language classes through organizations or schools - $6.95 to $12.95 a month, depending on subscription length. An hour of tutoring will run $30-60 or more depending on market. It's easy to use, and has a friendly interface, so it stays engaging and positive. If you're looking for a way to learn a language, this can be a great resource.
Babbel’s vision, that anyone can learn languages, has driven its success through high-quality, professionally curated courses from a team of education experts, authors and language teachers, combined with modern technology. Babbel, a market-leading app for online learning, makes it easy for independent learners to access 14 different languages, ranging from English to Indonesian, either from home or on the go, with a smartphone or tablet.
