You know what I hear a lot? People saying they wish they spoke more languages.
Being able to speak another language means you can communicate with more people and travel around other countries with ease. It's also just a fun thing to learn!
But learning a new language can be really hard. Even for the three-time winner of Tom Landry Middle School's Substitute Teacher of the Year award.
Luckily, Rosetta Stone has 25 different super simple language courses to choose from, and everything happens to be ON SALE RIGHT NOW! I'm talking up to 45% off!
This is a great gift for pretty much any occasion, whether it's a birthday present, anniversary gift, or random surprise. You can gift your wanderlust-driven friend some classes, oooorrr you can take some classes and surprise someone who has a different native language than you.
You might be thinking, "is having to the relive the horrors of French 101 really a good gift?" Well, let me tell you, this isn't going to be like high school. Rosetta Stone tries to make learning a new language as low-effort and fun as possible by teaching with a time-tested and proven immersion method.
A subscription comes with lots of useful features to help students learn quickly and efficiently. On top of courses, there's an app with a phrasebook and ~Seek and Speak~, which turns everyday objects into conversation practice with scavenger-hunt style challenges.
So what's the coursework like, you ask? Each course has several levels with four units each; each unit features core lessons that tackle the basics of the language. In between units, there will be activities to help practice what was learned so far.
There are 25 different languages to choose, so opting for an unlimited language package might be the right move.
They include: French, German, Italian, Latin American Spanish, Spain's Spanish, American English, British English, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Dutch, Filipino (Tagalog), Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Irish, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Persian (Farsi), Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
