If you’d like to learn a new language on the Web, there are actually quite a few options to choose from in this day and age. One that’s been growing like gangbusters, however, is online language learning company Babbel. The Berlin startup is currently present in more than 190 countries and boasts over 15 million users, with its strongest footprint in German-speaking regions. The company aims to expand aggressively in other European countries, the Americas and emerging markets, however, and recently acquired San Francisco-based social language-learning iOS app maker PlaySay to advance those plans.
