Learning a new language has never been easier! There are many apps available on your smartphone that can help you parle en Français or hablar en Español. Sometimes it can feel like a chore to sit down and study, but with Bluetooth hearing technology these apps are always at your fingertips. Plus, with your hearing aids in, you’ll always have access to clear sound and low levels of background noise.
When I took French in high school it was sometimes challenging for me to hear the instructor. Now, I’m revisiting French with the help of my Bluetooth hearing aids.
Voici comment vous pouvez apprendre une autre langue aussi!
(Here’s how you can learn another language too!)
- There are many language-learning apps available on your smartphone. One of the most popular, and my favourite, is Duolingo. It offers lessons in 22 different languages for free. The only catch is you only have a limited number of attempts today – but you can choose to practice more and earn more attempts. If you upgrade to the paid version for $15 a month you’ll never run out of attempts and can study as much as you want.
- For lessons where you have to listen to a speaker, all of the sounds will be routed right through your hearing aids, meaning you can practice even in the busiest of places as long as you turn your hearing aid microphones down. Other lessons include matching words, reading short stories, and typing out what you hear in English. (Protip: use the dictation button on your keyboard – the one that looks like a little microphone – and speak your answer into your phone).
Learning a new language is a great way to keep your mind sharp and active, or to prepare for an upcoming vacation. And with your Bluetooth hearing technology its never been easier!
