This is surely the cheapest way to learn a new language from home

Language teaching company Rosetta Stone has just made it a whole lot cheaper to learn a brand new language from home - and what better way to spend your time in lockdown?

The company has many different language courses to choose from, including Spanish, French and German, but also a number of slightly less traditional options such as Filipino, Hebrew and Persian.

The 10-minute lessons are founded on the idea that an interactive approach allows you to learn a new language at a much faster rate and in far greater depth than old-school vocab memorization ever could.

Rosetta Stone's 3-month single language subscriptions are now permanently available for a new everyday price of $11.99 per month, which could be the way to go if you’ve never used a similar service and just want to dip your toes in the water.

However, the firm also recently rolled out an unlimited languages offering available in 12-month and 24-month subscriptions, which have flown off the (virtual) shelves. The year-long package is available for $7.99pm, while the two-year plan is better value for money at $5.99pm, but of course involves a longer commitment.

For the best value, though, the most committed linguists should opt for a lifetime unlimited languages subscription. For a one-off fee of $199.00, you get access to all language courses, Rosetta Stone’s award-winning app, real-time accent feedback via the speech-recognition engine and more.

Unfortunately, one-on-one tutoring sessions are not included in the packages as standard, but can be tacked on at a later date if you like - although this will roughly double the price.

Note, subscriptions automatically renew at the full retail price once your subscription period has ended, so be sure to disable auto-renew if you don’t fancy extending your package.
