Mondly Launches AR-Enabled Language Learning Tool
Mondly, a popular language-learning platform with 30 million users, has released MondlyAR — a language-learning app powered by augmented reality and chatbots with speech recognition. According to the company, it has worked in close collaboration with Google to launch MondlyAR as part of the first wave of augmented reality apps available in Google Play.
MondlyAR offers virtual lessons and purposeful conversations in seven languages: French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, and both American and British English. In the lessons, a virtual teacher conducts human-like conversations with the user, offering instant feedback and replying with a human voice. To make students more likely to understand and retain what they are taught, Mondly creates virtual planets, animals, musical instruments, and more. For an even more immersive feeling, Mondly allows learners to walk up to, around and even interact with these virtual creations.
