Learning a new language is on many of our bucket lists. The idea of communicating fluently with others or being able to read signs while traveling abroad is highly appealing. The sense of accomplishment that comes with learning new skills is irreplaceable. Yet as we grow older, learning a language becomes harder to accomplish. The Beelinguapp Language Learning App was designed with you in mind.

The #4 Product of the Day on Product Hunt has an average rating of 4.7 in the Google Play store and 4.6 in the Apple App Store, and for good reason, too: Its unique karaoke approach lets you see, hear, and pronounce words in different languages at the same time. The app is diverse, offering 14 different languages for you to learn: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish. And, you have plenty of different audiobook genres and formats to learn from, like fairy tales, news, science papers, and novels, and more audiobooks are added each week.

Right now, you can get a lifetime subscription to the Beelinguapp Language Learning App for 60% off the list price. There's no time like now to check off that second (or fifth) language from your bucket list.

Price subject to change.
