Instead, Babbel aims to deliver 10-minute lessons, imparting core vocabulary and sentence structure through dialogue with actual native speakers.As users assimilate understanding and speaking around foundational topics like the weather, meals, or friends and family, learners could organically begin to piece together basic phrases and sentences used in everyday speech. As lessons are made to fit together like building blocks, the structure of the language starts to kick in, which helps to accelerate comprehension and might even help you speak your new language a bit faster.In addition, with its state-of-the-art speech recognition technology, Babbel is designed to actually listen to your speech, identify areas of improvement, then tailor future teachings to shore up your trouble spots.Mashable readers can earn exclusive access to the entire roster of Babbel’s language learning materials for $225, which is 55% off the regular price of a lifetime subscription.Prices subject to change.
