LanguageLab VR

It was when I started Steam recently that I checked new releases of VR games again. It had been some time since my last stop at the Steam Shop. 😉

One new addition immediately caught my attention, since I am in the language industry!

LanguageLab VR!

This is not your standard language learning application. This is the CrossFit of language learning apps. No multiple choice exercises, no grammar written out for you. Just you and the language, the same way you learned your first one.

If you need to see grammar instructions and want multiple choice exercises to tell you how good you are, there are other apps for that. If you prefer to see an alphabet written on a blackboard in order to learn pronunciation, there are other apps for that.

LanguageLab re-approached the language acquisition process from the ground up…

The idea behind it is to reproduce how humans naturally learn language as we are growing, in VR. They created lessons that mimic the same learning process that we have all used while learning our first language as kids. This means the first thing you do is listen and watch what you are being told. Then you experiment with the objects in the lesson and try to figure out what you are being told to do. No reading, no multiple choice exercises, no grammar written out on blackboards, not in the beginning at least. We all have learned a language like this before, our first language!

The team of LanguageLab built this because they were tired of spending years in classrooms, looking at alphabets and grammar written out in text books and hearing lectures from “experts” with “decades of teaching experience” before going to foreign countries and understanding next to nothing.

Here is a short video with an introduction:

Languages currently include:

English, Spanish, Catalan, Arabic, Chinese, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Thai, Dutch, Swahili, and Persian.

Meet the team behind LanguageLab

Brothers from Oregon, Andrew and Adam started Language Lab in 2021 after having spent years studying languages in school before moving overseas and realizing how little they could actually understand. 

Since our inception, we have grown into an international team of developers, curriculum designers, and translators all working to improve the way we acquire language.
