Learn a New Language
Prepare yourself for a well-deserved exotic vacation or simply stretch your mind and impress your friends! There are some outstanding free apps that make learning another language easier than it’s ever been before. Just a few:
- Rosetta Stone
Each of these apps is available for iOS and Android. Although there are subscription options, each offers extensive free options for at least a dozen different languages.
Get in Touch with Friends and Family
