Join the uTalk Challenge!
Software can’t teach you to speak and understand a language, but it can certainly help you get started with essential vocabulary and practice listening and speaking. uTalk is an iOS app available for a number of languages that is both useful and fun. Only the most basic level, however, is free unless you join the uTalk challenge.
If you sign up at eurotalk.com/utalkchallenge, you’ll receive on January 1, 2016, a code to unlock the uTalk Essentials level of the app in your chosen language completely free. Eurotalk, the company that makes uTalk, will check in with you each week to see how you’re doing. If you complete the Essesntials level by the end of January, you can receive another language for February and so on each month.
Note: The uTalk app is only available on iOS. However, if you don’t have an iOS device, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that an alternative can be worked out.
