Babbel: “Accent Yourself” - 56s

Embarrassment can often be a barrier to learning a new language, as people are hesitant to attempt to pronounce something if they can't do it perfectly. It's a common problem that language app Babbel address head-on in their latest campaign, which neatly encourages users to embrace their, erm, unique accent.

From chancing upon romance or friendship to widening one's view of the world, the diverse cast and scenarios here demonstrate the endless benefits to developing more methods of communication. There's also an underlying, timely message of tolerance at play: try to speak others' languages, and accept it when they do the same.
