If you’re hunkered down at home and looking for ways to stay entertained, you may want to try learning a new language. Not only will it keep your brain active, but it will make you more marketable in the workplace. Luckily, Amazon’s deal of the day is on Rosetta Stone: Spanish. Today only, you can get a lifetime subscription for just $159, or $140 off its list price. That’s a whopping 47 percent off.
This award-winning online software helps you speak and learn a new language through a series of games, stories, audio lessons, fun quizzes and live tutorials. These are quick to pick up, plus you can easily schedule them around your life, thanks to both long and short sessions available. The software provides an immersive learning experience that involves you “seeing, hearing, speaking, reading and writing,” just like you do in the real world.
“Easy and fun,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “…If you’re thinking about learning a language, don’t hesitate with this product. Unlike the old one, this is a lifetime edition. It’s sectioned off into manageable lessons that you can interact with on your phone or computer, and it will tell you in the beginning how long the lesson will be, so you can plan your day.”
Rosetta Stone works on most devices—including Windows 10 or macOS laptops and Android or iOS smartphones and tablets—so you can switch from your Apple iPhone to your MacBook Air without skipping a beat or losing your progress. It also features a handy phrasebook that’s full of greetings and cultural expressions, which works offline, too.
Lessons include a “TruAccent” feature that uses voice recognition software to ensure you’re pronouncing Spanish words correctly. This feature will help you sound like you’ve been speaking Spanish for years.
“The voice recognition in the software is excellent,” continued the reviewer. “As you repeat something in Spanish, there is a ring icon that will show you how well you pronounced it. For example, if you pronounce it perfectly, it will be a solid green ring. If you did it passable but not fabulous, there is a break in the ring and a fading of the color. It continues until you mangled the word so badly that it will ask you to repeat it until you get it right. Not a problem, because you just mimic what they tell you.”
And the best part? You can start learning Spanish immediately. Access to Rosetta Stone: Spanish will be sent to your email inbox instantly, so you don’t have to wait to get it delivered in the mail.
