Anytime in your life, have you tried learning a new language? Most of the people in their life would have been interested in knowing a new language. But, for most of us, learning a new language has always been difficult. Not getting the proper tutor or center for learning the languages ends up killing their interest. Most of the schools have introduced a second or third language where the students learn new languages but we don’t really learn there, do we?
But now, anyone who wants to learn a new language can do it easily with a new app made specifically for it. Mondly, an Augmented Reality app allows the users to learn new languages easily. The AR-enabled app reduces the pain of learning new languages with their tech-enabled interface app.
Mondly – AR Enabled App
The AR-based learning app made its debut in the Play Store and the App Store by March end of this year. MondlyAR, the app available on the Play Store for Android devices and on App Store for iOS devices will help the users learn new languages easily. The app offers some of the introductory languages as free but the users have to pay a fee to learn the additional languages. For a monthly subscription, the app charges $10 from the users. TNW has tied up with the Mondly App and is offering a lifetime subscription at a price of $39.99.
MondlyAR makes use of speech recognition combined with an Augmented Reality (AR) experience. The app gives the user an experience of being in the classroom. A virtual teacher shows up on the screen and interacts with the users. The users can have a conversation with them and learn new languages like English, German, Italian, French, Spanish. The company has claimed that they will add around 30 languages by the month of August.
Many applications are present for the users but most of them only have on-screen text which ends up being irritating after some time and the users will easily give up. But, this app is different from all the others. The app has many interactive features too. For instance, the teachers can change their avatars in the app. For example, the teacher can dress up as a waitress and take orders from the users like in a restaurant and so on. The app has many interesting lessons like one of them being perfecting the punctuations and to use the words in correct order. Modly is also interactive where the teacher will show objects like fruits and will ask the users to name them.
MondlyAR has around 4.5-star ratings out of 5 in the Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store. The rating is accumulated as a result of 1,00,000 reviews which is certainly a good number. The app has enhanced the users’ experience in learning any new languages with games and other interactive sessions. Also, the company says that they are collaborating with Google to use their ARCore tech and build something new. But, there is a small limitation with this app. The AR experience is enabled only on some of the high-end smartphones. Nevertheless, the app seems interesting and will help the users to learn the language they are passionate about.
