Great potential - just needs a bit of support. The "Things you can say" dialogue box often appears empty, so you get no way of knowing what your options are. The microphone / voice recognition is also a bit patchy - sometimes only picks up the second half of what you say. As a demo, this is awesome, and shows the potential for a lot more. Iron out the bugs, I'd be prepared to pay a lot more for it. As it is, I'm slightly miffed.
Fixed but now that it works I'm very dissapointed. This app barely has any content, can barely recognize what you say, and is to advanced for biggeners trying to learn a language. Not worth the price and barely even works.
I have just purchased this app, and cannot get it to work. I select the language, than when I try to choose the scenario... nothing happens. A red circle comes up... as if loading, but it stops there. Cannot figure out why it does that. How can I get full refund?! 😰 I am very disappointed over the fact, that I cannot use this app at all. Therefore, when you say, that you are sorry I couldn`t fully (?) enjoy this app, you should have said, that it didn`t work at all. It loads, then when I am to pick the scenario, it freezes. Nothing happens. Please advice me on how to get a full refund. Thanks.
I have taught Chinese at university for 20 years. I have also developed a 3D virtual environment for my students to practice their Chinese in (not commercially available) that we have been using for nearly 10 years. I say this because I am actually excited about MondlyVR and its potential. However, I must warn potential learners of Chinese that quite a bit of what is said in the dialogues is wrong, either grammatically or a native speaker would just never say those things or that way. Some of it is just nonsense and you get the feeling that the English was just feed into Google Translate and the literal Chinese translation spat out and used. The pronunciation of the so called native speakers is also all over the place. I hope Mondly makes the effort to fix these things up properly, otherwise they are doing s huge disfavor to their customers.
Excellent way to practice conversation in the language you want to learn. It helps you prepare for a real life encounter with a native speaker. 👍
I like the idea of learning a new language in VR, but I would love to see more real life situations. Otherwise I see a lot of potential. Looking forward for the updates.
