¡Hola, Geeks! So, how are your language skills? There are days where I feel like I barely understand the intricacies of the English language at all. Two-year-old Henry is still well within the baby babble stage, but I find myself a bit envious, because whether he knows it or not, he's in the process of learning two languages at such a young age. Both Jay and I are wanting to learn Spanish, and after a bit of trial and error, we've found the easiest app to help us is Babbel. And, as part of our Valentine's Day celebration, we're giving away a 1-year free subscription to one lucky you, 'cause te amamos!
Still looking for a great super last minute Valentine's Day gift? Or, at this point, you might be looking for an "I'm sorry," gift for thinking a regular box of Smarties was going to go over well with your partner this year.
Whether it's a life goal, and a fun way to impress your partner, learn to say "I love you," in 14 languages with this awesome graphic!
Here are 5 great reasons from Babbel to give the gift of language this Valentine’s Day:
- Learning a new language makes you appear more attractive
As mentioned, almost 70% of Canadian language learners feel that speaking a foreign language makes you more attractive to someone, according to Babbel’s 2016 Perception of Language Learning Survey.
- Learning a new language is an aphrodisiac
Recent research has shown that learning a new language stimulates the same part of your brain as gambling, chocolate and – yes – sex.
- Learning a new language keeps your brain healthy – and smart is sexy!
Recent research shows that bilingualism has a concrete impact on brain function and that this may have a positive impact on cognitive aging. Brains and beauty? Definitely sexy.
- Single? Learning a new language may help you meet someone
According to Babbel’s 2016 Global User Survey, over 80% of language learners achieved their goal of meeting new people after learning a new language.
- Learning a new language is a gift that keeps on giving
Unlike flowers and chocolate, language learning is a gift that stands the test of time and will stay with your loved one for years to come.
