Thankfully, you already have everything you need to brush up on the phrases you need for your next trip — and it’s likely right in your pocket! There’s no easier or more convenient way to learn a language than with a great language-learning app for your iPhone, iPad or other device.

If you’ve started and stopped trying to learn a new language multiple times, then you know how hard it can be. Learning a language isn’t just about mastering new words. It’s picking up new grammar, new ways to move your mouth you haven’t had to before — even new ways of structuring how you think. And all that’s really hard to learn without individualized instruction and a lot of chances to practice.

Babbel is the No. 1 way to pick up a new language — 14 new languages, actually. During the Babbel is Back promotion, you can get a lifetime of Babbel Language Learning for just $199.
