Hoping to learn a language this year? Babbel is an app for online language learning and has courses that easily integrate into your everyday life. Our 12 year old wanted to learn Spanish this year so she and I began working through the course together.
Babbel has courses available in 14 languages that include: German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Norwegian, Danish, Russian, (Brazilian) Portuguese, Polish, Indonesian, Swedish, and Dutch. As you can see, they offer many choices and you set the pace for your learning. Plus, in addition to desktop, Babbel is the best-selling language learning app on both iTunes and Google Play so you can do the courses from anywhere.
For us, this means that her language courses can come with us as we travel. After all, one reason she wants to learn Spanish is to talk to her PaPaw more in his native tongue, as well as be fluent in it for our travels. Additionally, our 10 year old dreams of going to Paris. Therefore, she wants to learn French. The ease and efficiency of Babbel makes it an easy choice for both of them as we all learn and discover new languages together.
