However, the truth is that learning a new language is even more important as our world becomes increasingly connected. According to a 2014 Coalition for International Education study, 30 percent of U.S. business executives noted that they missed out on opportunities overseas because they lacked on-staff language skills. Plus, from a mental health standpoint, those who are bilingual or multilingual have better multitasking abilities, according to a study from Pennsylvania State University.
Still, these benefits don't change the fact that learning a new language can still be a herculean effort, but uTalk Language Education is aiming to fix that by offering a lifetime of training in six languages of your choosing (from a selection of 130) for $29.99, or any one language for $19.99.
Unlike other language learning solutions, uTalk starts you off with practical vocabulary. So, instead of memorizing dull food items and animal names, uTalk guides you toward having real conversations as quickly as possible. To pick up the nuances of casual speech, uTalk provides you with vocal samples from native speakers and verifies your progress with interactive games. Plus, with uTalk, you can access your account from any device so you can pick up where you left off anywhere.
There's also no time limit on when you must choose your languages to learn, so you can adjust your curriculum to your needs and interests as they change down the road.
You can take the first step toward becoming multilingual with a lifetime subscription to uTalk Language Education's six language plan, on sale for more than 90 percent off at $29.99, or grab the single language plan for just $19.99.
