Voxy iPhone App Turns Your Location into a Language Classroom

voxy-app-feat

The Voxy team has been hard at work around the clock to take our “learn a language from life” mission to the next level.

Today – at long last! – we are extremely excited to announce the release of our newest product:

The world’s first location-based language learning app!

What does this mean?

Mobile learning has never been easier or more rewarding! iPhone-carrying ESL learners can now access location-based lessons tailored to their current whereabouts – the local grocery store or bank, for example. In this way, they have the opportunity to master key vocabulary and expressions in context.

What are the app’s key features?

  • Lessons on Key vocabulary, Things you HEAR and Things you SAY for each unique point of interest
  • Full audio pronunciation of words and phrases
  • Location stored with your vocabulary flashcards for a personalized learning experience
  • Continued access to your favorite news-based lessons in News, Pop Culture and Sports

    I wish I had this last year on my trip to Barcelona. Being able to brush up or practice / learn just outside of a real life situation is brilliant.

    You guys seem to be on a roll, and glad to see the success in mobile.

    Looking forward to the English-to-Spanish release!

     This look impressive. Years and years ago, reading Pit Corder on situational teaching it occurred to me that one day there would be locational teaching – situations played out in certain locations. It looks as if you have invented locational learning!   Congratulations.   Denni9s.

    This idea simply portray the advancement of our technology and how it will benefit you a lot and how this can be a great tool for your development and progression. I am looking for several information on how I can learn Spanish language in easy and affordable way and I think learn conversational spanish is the best to consider.

     Language is by its very nature a communal thing; that is, it expresses never the exact thing but a compromise – that which is common to you, me, and everybody.Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.
