There’s truth to the maxim that if you stop learning, you stop living — and learning a new language can be one of the best ways to open new doors for your personal and professional life. And while that may not be the sort of thing you’d normally shop for on Black Friday, it turns out self-improvement is on sale along with the rest of this year’s hot items.

For a limited time, acclaimed language learning app Babbel is offering lifetime subscriptions for $139.97, a full $60 off the previous sale price.

Black Friday Babbel deal: Learn up to 14 languages

If you’ve never tried to learn a new language before, Babbel makes it easy to jump right in. The lessons incorporate picture-matching, fill-in-the-blanks exercises and conversational snippets that give you multiple ways to memorize keywords and phrases. Once you’re ready to start using full sentences, the app’s speech-recognition algorithms test your pronunciation so you can confidently speak like a local.

Best of all, these lessons are structured to fit any kind of schedule. You can complete them in about 15 minutes at most. And that means even the busiest entrepreneur can fit in at least one language lesson a day.

Plus, you can save your progress and pick up your study on any connected device. You can even download lessons to tackle on flights or any place you expect to be offline.

Take your pick of any or all of these 14 languages with your subscription: Chinese, Danish, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Save on Babbel, the easy way to learn foreign languages

Babbel is the fastest, easiest way to learn a new language. And it works on iOS, macOS, Android and Windows.

From now until the end of November 26, a lifetime subscription to Babbel is available for $139.97, down from the usual price of $199.97.
