Can you believe Rosetta Stone has been around since 1992? It used to be all the rage years ago (in fact, anyone with a subscription to the language learning software had bragging rights when it first hit the scene). Now, in 2023, it's still one of the best platforms to learn a language from home. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also *a lot* more affordable than most language courses when you opt for the lifetime subscription plan, which gives you unlimited access to learn all 25 languages offered for, well, life. Especially now that you can snag it for as low as $149 (was $399) during the Rosetta Stone sale for Black Friday 2023. That's over 60 percent off (and the lowest price it's been all year)—but you only have until Dec. 4 to get the discount.

If you're wondering why you should buy it now, just think about how learning a new language will benefit you in the long run, especially when you've got a big vacation planned. Let's say you're headed to Paris (um, jealous)—it wouldn't be a bad idea to pick up some French so you can order escargots like a pro and not totally feel like a tourist while you're there. (From experience, the French are actually big on greetings, so knowing how to say “Bonjour” and “Bonsoir” will get you far.) Plus, it makes a great gift for the whole family to prep for the trip together!
The bonus is that you can learn French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch and so many more languages right on your phone, tablet or computer. And reviewers say it's *so* easy to navigate the lessons, even their tech-challenged parents can do it. After all, it's never too late to learn a new language, and the TikTok below is a shining example.
