Mondly Launches the First Voice Chatbot for Learning Languages

Mondly, a popular free language-learning app with over 10 million downloads worldwide, has today released a new language-learning conversational chatbot to help users practice speaking and writing while learning a new language, the first of its kind.   

The new Mondly conversational chatbot interacts with users with both a text input and a speech recognition engine that allows them to actually practice speaking and writing in an interactive environment.  

The app uses speech recognition technology from Nuance enhanced with Mondly’s own proprietary object recognition engine that identifies objects in text to create adaptive visual responses.  It already understands millions of phrases and words in each language and it is improving every day.

Here’s a video demo:

The goal of the chatbot is to provide fun and adaptive lessons that encourage users to practice the language they are learning in everyday scenarios, such as ordering in a restaurant.  The app recognizes millions of inputs and creates an adaptive visual response when it recognizes a word or phrase that the user has said or input, providing a reinforcing feedback that builds helps build confidence.

Mondly is currently teaching 33 languages, twice as many as the next biggest competitor, and offers courses to learn popular languages such as English, German, Spanish and French, but also for major Asian, Latin American and African languages, including Arabic.  A unique feature to Mondly is that you can learn any of the 33 languages in the language of your choice.  If a user natively speaks Spanish, that user can learn French with a Spanish language interface. 

The Mondly conversational chatbot will be available in ALL 33 languages and available with the free version of the app.

The Mondly App is available for free on iOSAndroid and on the web:
