First up Babbel, a popular website and app!

Babbel offers 14 different languages and uses speech recognition software to measure how well your pronunciation matches what you’re trying to say.

Lessons are 15 minutes and designed with real world conversation in mind. Plus, the first lesson is free, after that plans start at $7 a month.

The first lesson is free and you can continue from $7 a month or $50 for the year.
