As schools and universities across the U.S. close, language learning app Babbel is offering all K-12 and college students free access to its app until the end of the term (mid June 2020).
The move comes after the successful provision of free Babbel to people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy, and is designed to help students use their time at home productively and maintain cognitive activity.
With more than 76 million students enrolled in schools and colleges in the U.S. (2018 census data), nationwide closures are likely to have an adverse effect on the learning journey of many children and young adults.
To mitigate against the impact of closures, Babbel is offering those affected three months access for free to its app and platform, in any and all of its 14 languages offered: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Dutch, Turkish, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Indonesian, and English.
To receive free three-month access, students (or their parents or guardian) need only apply via this link using their valid school email addresses: https://welcome.babbel.com/en/student-discount/ They will receive a coupon code for 3 free months.
The Babbel app is available on iOS, Android, and desktop.
