    Attention everyone shopping for the holidays!! (Or just for yourself!) From this very moment until the end of the day on November 29th — aka all the way through Black Friday itself! — the language-learning site Rosetta Stone is offering up to FIFTY PERCENT OFF (YES, FIVE-ZERO PERCENT OFF) subscriptions to their app/website.

    Rosetta Stone

    Whether the person you're gifting it to (or just you!!) wants to travel, connect more deeply with family or friends who speak a different language, or just broaden their horizons and stay mentally sharp, learning a new language is the perfect way to get started!

    You could also potentially learn your ~gift-ees~ language using this discount (if you don't really know it already, of course), get them something else for the holidays, then reveal your new skills as a birthday / surprise / anytime gift!

    And Rosetta Stone makes learning a new language as low-effort (and fun!) as possible, because it teaches with a time-tested and proven immersion method, which is v. different from all those classes you took in high school.

    Well, at least my classes in high school. Immersion works with your brain's ~natural language learning ability~, and while all students are different, anyone trying it out could have a pretty decent grip on the basics of the language after even only an hour each day for a little over a month. So if they have any international travel planned this winter (escaping somewhere warm, perhaps?), it's not too late to start!

    A subscription comes with several incredibly useful features: besides the full multi-unit Rosetta Stone course, they'll get an app with a phrasebook and ~Seek and Speak~, which turns everyday objects into conversation practice with scavenger-hunt style challenges.

    And it uses your speaker and microphone to help you with your pronunciation! Practicing conversations is key, because the more you actually spend speaking and thinking in a different language, the more it sticks with you.

    Naturally, a subscription works *both* on a desktop/laptop and phone/tablet apps, all depending on your giftee's (or your) preferences and schedule.

    And everything keeps up with the exact moment that you left off, even if you were on your phone and switch over to your laptop.

    Each course itself has several levels with four units each; each unit features core lessons that lay the foundation of the language. In between each unit, they'll get several other little entertaining activities to help them practice what they've just learned.

    Each lesson takes between five and 30 minutes, and most people take about 40–50 hours to work through each level. Each language has about 250 hours of content total, but you can start making progress with just 30 minutes a day!

    And there are 25 different languages to choose from!

    Rosetta Stone / instagram.com

    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.

    So treat them (or yourself) to something different and deeply fulfilling this year — and save $$$ while doing it. Monthly plans with the discount included start at $5.18/month! But don't forget, this discount's only good if you sign between now and Black Friday, which is November 29th!

    That price's for the 24 Month Deal (originally $249); the 12- and 3-month deals are also 50% off at $89.50 (originally $179) and $39.50 (originally $79), respectively.

    OH, and BTW, one option for this deal is a lifetime subscription to one language for $189, which is 37% off the original price of $299! That means they can seriously go at their own pace and still learn so much, plus take refresher courses whenever they need.

    Like over a fabulous breakfast on their latest adventure!
