Many studies have shown that learning a second language can boost cognitive function, even in old age! And with technology being easily accessible to most of us, learning a language has never been easier.
“We’re proud to be launching the Verbling native mobile app,” it says in a blog announcing the launch. “Bringing our global network of teachers to a mobile platform truly makes language learning with teachers accessible to everyone.”
[Other] services have one thing in common: They deal in software (like A.I) and rigid lesson plans to keep human teachers out of the picture. Verbling, the service I use to learn Spanish, is basically the opposite.
Global businesses need global employees, and that means multilingual ones. Face-to-face language learning platform Verbling wants to make employee education simple.
Based in San Francisco, Verbling offers foreign language classes with experienced language teachers from all over the world at different prices. Users can select the teachers that best suit them, and take hour-long private lessons via video chat.
To help it stand out from the pack and take on the Rosetta Stones of the world, Verbling has put a new, yet familiar spin on language learning. To help immerse students in a new language (and learn more effectively), Verbling uses frictionless, in-browser video chat to connect its learners with native speakers, live, in 3-D.
