Teacher Review

Mondly Languages was recommended to me by a friend, and I’m glad they did. Superficially it’s similar to Duolingo, but it has a few special touches that differentiate it and make it well worth considering.

The first app was launched in 2014, with MondlyVR following in 2017 and MondlyKids in 2018. The VR program was “the first virtual reality language app with speech recognition.” They’ve also got an AR (augmented reality) version, available on Oculus and Play Store, which features ” an avatar “teacher” who brings virtual objects – planets, animals, musical instruments, etc. – into the room as teaching tools, engages the user in conversations and gives instant feedback on pronunciation using the chatbot technology.”

This immediately sets it apart from everything else on the list of best language-learning apps of 2019. Making learning fun can be a struggle (I worked in a school for nearly 10 years… I still carry the mental scars), so adding VR and AR will definitely engage more youngsters.

It covers 33 languages, including Afrikaans, Bulgarian and Persian and you can learn directly from your mother language, so for example directly from Polish to Thai. Nice touch.

Most of the lessons are presented in a similar format to Duolingo – link words to images, choose the correct words to complete a sentence etc The course material is broken down into subjects like Core Vocabulary, Preparing a Trip, Doctor etc and they have a ton of material.

For me, where Mondly really stands out is the Chatbot. You get to have a real/simulated conversation with a chatbot (a computer program designed to simulate a conversation with human users). You’re presented with a scenario (at the restaurant, shopping, in a taxi etc, asked a series of questions and must converse with the bot. The app offers suggestions for how to reply, but you can actually say anything. You choose your own solution.

This tests your listening skills, pronunciation and sentence construction. Although in real life people may phrase the questions slightly differently, you should be able to pick out enough to answer and make yourself understood.

There is a free version of the app, but it’s very limited. You can access one short class called Hello, one chatbot session and the daily lesson. Everything else is locked unless you sign up for a membership (£9.99 per month but often heavily discounted, plus they have a 7-day free trial).

Aside from the chatbot, other highlights include the challenges. Complete all the daily lessons in a week and you can enter the weekly quiz. Complete all of them and you enter the Monthly Challenge. These small things definitely scratch a competitive itch and keep you returning.

As a language learning medium, Mondly is highly beneficial for learners who are seeking to carry out daily activities, have conversations and not feel out of place among native speakers of a language. Mondly’s artificial intelligence programming, which ensures that you pronounce words properly, is highly beneficial to learners who look forward to expressing themselves in the languages of their choice. It simulates real-life circumstances such as scenarios in restaurants, cafes and hotels, as well as conversations between acquaintances and business partners.
