I think we can all agree on one thing.
Anyway, several language learning companies are putting their courses on sale right now, so I figured it’d be helpful if I compiled a list of them here.
Manu of Italy Made Easy has made some exceptionally good Italian courses (review). He never does sales or discounts, not even for Black Friday, but decided to do so now to make the courses more accessible.

Language: Mandarin Chinese
These two courses were created by Olle Linge of the incredibly helpful blog, Hacking Chinese. He has a ton of knowledge and experience teaching Chinese which comes through in these courses.
Hacking Chinese: A Practical Guide to Learning Mandarin focuses on general strategies for learning, including how to improve your pronunciation, review characters and plan your studies. It’s for all learners, but beginners should start with Unlocking Chinese.
Unlocking Chinese: The Ultimate Guide for Beginners gives you a solid foundation in all areas of learning Mandarin, including how to learn, which tools to use and how to plan your studies. This course is created for beginners.
Both courses are 50% off.
Languages: Dutch, Danish, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Spanish and Turkish.
Babbel (review) is an insanely popular language learning app available in several languages. It’s not the most unique or exciting app, but the courses are structured well with a variety of practice exercises. It teaches relevant vocabulary, conversations, and does a good job with grammar.
They’re offering 60% off a 24-month subscription.
Do you have a child at home?
We tend to not write a lot about language learning resources for kids because nobody on our team has children. Nevertheless, I came across a couple of really interesting offers for anyone who has some restless young ones running around.
Babbel is available free for three months for students (US only). Their courses are pretty solid (review) and this is super cool of them.
Rosetta Stone is also offering three months of free access to their courses for students. Although I’m not a huge of their courses (review), this is a pretty awesome to do.
