Traveling to a new country is always a thrill, but landing and speaking the language is next level. In reality, it can also means friendlier service, better restaurant access and some new friends along the way too.

Inundated with busy lives and commutes, it’s easy to understand why many wouldn’t bother, but with all that time saved commuting, you can learn a language with an hour, or even just a few minutes a day.

When you can earn 40% cash back, and get a 50% discount, or even earn 40x Amex Points if you’re USA based, there’s about 40 to 50 more reasons to take the plunge. Babbel is one of the best app based language learning tools which has won countless awards, and right now is an amazing time to get it.

Yep, you can genuinely stack 50% off and 40x Amex Membership Rewards Points, or take 40% cash back on your 50% off purchase, via Rakuten. Wild, but true. If you don’t yet have a Rakuten account, you can earn $10 when you make your first purchase of $25 or more.

Rakuten allows US based members to choose between cash back and Amex Membership Rewards Points, which makes this deal potentially even sweeter.

So, what languages does Babbel offer? Quite a few. German, French, Spanish, Danish, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Russian, Indonesian, Turkish and English should keep you fairly busy for a bit, or at least until you can go put one of these languages to use in their native lands.

Ultimately, this is a really cool way to turn extra time at home into a life long skill which will help not only with travel, but work as well. When you can bank a bunch of points or score great cash back on top, it’s all the more compelling.
