In order to understand any culture, you really need to speak the language. Instead of learning from textbooks and CDs, you might want to try Mondly.
This highly-rated smartphone app uses speech recognition technology and augmented reality to enrich the language learning experience. In addition, lessons take just 10 minutes a day. Lifetime access is worth $239.95, but you can unlock one language now for $39.99 or three languages for $59.99 via the Raw Story Store.
Many of us had a tough time learning languages at high school. But learning with Mondly is completely different. Instead of wading through textbooks, you learn vocabulary through fun picture quizzes.
The app also provides recordings of native speakers, and you can answer aloud. Mondly uses speech recognition technology to rate your pronunciation, and the app can even hold a virtual conversation.
The augmented reality feature is another great learning tool; you simply point your camera at everyday objects to get a live translation. Mondly covers 33 different languages, including Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, German, and many more.
