As a final call to action, I'd like to describe why learning a language is so important for you (and this applies generally and not just on the Ling app). Language learning has been shown to slow the effects of cognitive decline that come with aging as well as improve neuroplasticity over time. But more than that, much more, is the sense of accomplishment you get when you go from zero to hero in a new language.

Also, there's nothing quite like seeing the face of a native speaker when you start speaking their language. It shows you care enough about their culture to spend your money, and more importantly, your time on something that is dear to them. It is a tremendous experience.

Happy learning!
