This app provides a simple route to multi-lingual expertise, on the move


Learning a second (or third, or fourth…) language is always a good move for the savvy business traveller, but when you’re constantly on the road, finding time for weekly classes is near impossible. Now, online language-learning platform Babbel has introduced mobile versions of their popular programme. Available on Android, iOS and Windows 8, there are 13 languages to choose from. The app boasts a hefty vocabulary dictionary, speech recognition, image connections and native-speaker pronunciations. It also recognises what you’ve learnt most thoroughly and presents it back to you, allowing users to pinpoint their progress.
