Mondly’s app turns learning a new language into a game

Nobody expects that learning a new language will be simple. Sure, small children pick them up with astonishing ease, but when adults try to master an entirely new means of communication, there’s often a very steep learning curve.

Obviously, the mechanics of remembering and using all that new vocabulary and syntax is tough enough. However, the sticking point many new language learners face is the learning process itself.

Mondly language learning platform is changing that. The app developers have figured out a fun, engaging way to teach anyone a new language. And right now, you can check it out for yourself at over 90 percent off the regular price — just $69.99 for a lifetime of access.

With a four-and-a-half star rating from nearly 100,000 Apple App Store and Google Play Store reviews, Mondly doesn’t need much introduction. But let’s get into what Mondly’s all about anyhow:

You’ll start by picking from 33 different languages — not the usual Spanish or French.  Once you’ve made your selection, you’ll find yourself in a virtual reality situation, conversing with a native speaker.  But don’t freak out — you’ll get verbal prompts teaching you how to respond.

Via Mondly’s state-of-the-art speech recognition technology, they’ll then evaluate your answer, determine if you answered correctly, then help you expand your understanding and teach you multiple variations for dealing with the conversation.

The short modules feel more like games than lessons, arming you with resources like a dictionary and a verb conjugator to expand your skills and help you become fluent in any language you choose.

The lifetime Mondly package allows you to learn up to five different languages (a nearly $1,200 value) for $69.99. But in case you’re more selective, you can also choose from 3-language ($59.99) and single language ($39.99) packages as well.
