TL;DR: Take half off a 2-year subscription to the Busuu Language Learning Premium Plus app, dropping the price to just $89.99 as of July 12.
You can’t really say you speak another language unless you know how to use it in various contexts – as in, going beyond asking where the bathroom is. Oh, and copying and pasting into Google Translate doesn’t count either.
Feeling attacked? Maybe you should learn a new language for real with Busuu.
Busuu is the world’s largest community for language learning, with over 100 million learners worldwide. It also happens to have earned the title of Google Play Store Editors’ Choice and Apple App Store: App of the Year. Why? Well, it goes beyond just showing you vocabulary words and having you memorize them. Instead, it follows an internationally recognized scale for assessing language learning fluency and uses placement tests when you sign up for new languages. In other words, the lessons will be personalized for you.
Another cool feature is the ability to connect with native speakers for conversations and feedback on lessons. This will help you hear how words are actually pronounced and figure out the right way to say certain things. You aren’t just reading off a page trying to sound things out yourself.
A premium plus subscription will give you access to over 1,000 lessons created by expert linguists in 12 different languages where you’ll learn to build sentences with advanced grammar lessons, take tests to earn McGraw-Hill Education certifications, and more. Oh, and don’t worry about forgetting words as you go – the adaptive Vocabulary Trainer has got your back.
Start learning French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Arabic, and more on your computer. Pick it up later on your phone. Or even download lessons and take them with you. The world is your oyster or whatever.
A two-year premium plus subscription to Busuu Language Learning usually costs $180, but you can sign up for just $89.99 for a limited time.
