Become a polyglot in your spare time with uTalk

Learning a new language will give your resume an upgrade, sure, but it will also provide a huge cognitive boost for mental tasks outside of translation and conversation. Bilingual brains have been shown to be better at handling multiple concurrent tasks, and gaining fluency in a new tongue is an amazing way to improve memory, and stave off dementia later in life.

uTalk is a mobile application for studying foreign languages. Instead of grilling you on complex grammar rules, this app focuses on building a practical vocabulary so you actually communicate with people. You'll grow your language skills naturally with input from native speakers, and build confidence with interactive speaking games. This app syncs your progress across all of your devices and is compatible with most mobile and desktop platforms.

This package from uTalk includes American English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Latin American Spanish. You can get lifetime access to resources for these six languages for $29.99 in the Boing Boing Store.
