Users of Android devices can experience the most advanced way to learn languages in any setting. Mondly, offered by ATi Studios, is the first VR app for learning a world language featuring speech recognition and chatbot technology. Users can choose from 30 languages and take part in real conversations with virtual characters in Spanish, French, German, English, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Russian, and more. TheVR app provides instant feedback on pronunciation, suggestions that enrich vocabulary, and interactive scenarios that make language learning engaging. Users can take part in realistic dialogues inspired from authentic events—for example, they can make friends on a train to Berlin, order dinner in a restaurant in Tokyo, check into a hotel in Paris, chat with the hotel manager in Rome, or take a taxi ride in Hong Kong. A recent update offers a new type of vocabulary lesson that engages students in learning about topics such as animals, space, fruits, and vegetables. Currently this feature is only available for some language combinations. Costs: $4.99 for Daydream and $3.49 for Android with Google Cardboard.
