TL;DR: A lifetime subscription to the Beelinguapp Language Learning App is on sale for £30.51 as of August 18, saving you 60% on list price.
Mispronouncing a word in another language might seem like an innocent mistake, but it could also lead to a seriously embarrassing – and potentially offensive – faux pas.
Luckily, you can avoid those awkward indiscretions with the convenience of a language learning app. There are literally hundreds of options on the market today – word games, memorisation-based, and even conversation-based – but of course, what works for some may not work for you. If you’re looking for something different, we’ve got just the thing: Beelinguapp.
Rather than using flashcards or matching games, Beelinguapp teaches you new languages through stories and audiobooks. These audiobooks include popular children’s stories, fairy tales, news articles, novels, scientific papers, and more. And before you ask, yes, you can choose the genre. The app will throw up side-by-side texts in two languages – one in your native language and the other in the one you want to learn. You can choose from Spanish, English, German, Portuguese, Korean, French, Hindi, Russian, Turkish, Chinese, Arabic, Italian, Swedish, or Japanese. Just follow along with the audio recorded by a native language speaker to know how the words are pronounced, and use your own language as a guide to the various words and phrases.
It’s pretty straightforward and doesn’t sugarcoat things like a lot of other apps, which people really seem to like, based on reviews. On the Google Play store, it’s earned a casual 4.7 out of 5 stars, with over 42,000 reviews. Meanwhile, on the App Store, it’s earned 4.6 out of 5 with over 700 reviews. Not too shabby, eh?
The best part, however, is that a lifetime premium subscription to Beelinguapp is on sale for just £30.51, saving you 60% on list price.
