We’ve reviewed Babbel here at Latin American Spanish Cafe and we like it. Like Mondly, DuoLingo, Busuu, Babbel focuses on the repetition of words, phrases, and situations to try and drill home the message. It works. These methods are basically how everyone learns a language and it will teach you a language if you persevere.
The great news is that you also get the opportunity to practice your target language with the apps. Check out the Babbel discount for 2021 below.
50% off your subscription.
And if you’re interested in Babbel Live, sign up here and you might also get a discount.

The app uses language challenges to help grow your vocabulary and understanding.

One of our new favorite apps, LingQ is a comprehensive language learning app for Web, Android, and iOS. We generally use it on the web and it feels like using an app. Yes, the interface is that good.
The free version of LingQ is packed with features and many people are happy with this level of content. But it’s definitely worth checking out the Premium version, especially when there’s a discount.
With the Premium version you get offline access to the apps, the ability to edit lessons and import lessons, and unlimited vocabulary flashcards (called LingQs) as well as the free features like access 40 languages, language podcasts, downloadable audio, and lessons syncing and lesson tracking.
This is one of the language apps I use regularly for learning several languages. The Spanish dialect is European so it might not be 100% perfect for Latin American language learners. However, the basics of vocabulary and sentence structure don’t change (much) so it’s still a good investment.
There’s 50% off the yearly plans and 30% off lifetime plans for Black Friday.
If you’re happy enough to wait for the Latam accents or you have other languages you’d like to learn, grab this deal while it’s heavily discounted.

Frequently Asked Questions
A list of questions we get asked here at Latin American Spanish Cafe thanks to our updated list of discounts and promotions.
Is there a DuoLingo Black Friday deal?
DuoLingo is free. The company does offer a service called DuoLingo Plus, but thus far, it has not offered a discount on this for Black Friday. Check back here for updates as we learn of them.
Does Fluent in 3 Months have a Black Friday deal and is it good for Spanish learners?
Yes, Fluent in 3 Months or FI3M, as it’s sometimes called, usually offers a pretty good Black Friday and Cyber Monday discount. The 3-month Teachable-based course can sell for less than $100 so it’s worth a look. While there is a Spanish track, it’s Castillian Spanish, rather than Latin American.
Are there any language learning discounts year round?
