Airbnb

Need to make money?  So did the founders of Airbnb when they were broke web designers in San Francisco.  They rented out an air mattress on their floor and called it their Air B&B.  Why not consider renting out your apartment for a little bit or supporting a local next time you travel instead of staying at a corporate hotel?

Duolingo

Want to take a crack at learning a new language?  This app was built to gamify language learning and play against your friends.  Best part is, it’s totally free.

Rosetta Stone

Now, if you are ready to make the investment in actually learning a language, nothing is better than putting your money where your mouth is.  Rosetta Stone is the best language learning software there is, because it uses all of your senses including visual, audio, and situational cues to help you learn the language.  This helped the Under30Experiences staff get up to speed when traveling abroad.
