Most high school or regular French courses start by teaching you dull grammar rules and complex language notions. There has to be a better way! We, at Mondly - the language app loved by millions of people worldwide, take an opposite approach. Our language experts care deeply about your ability to have real conversations in French as fast as possible. That's why, rather than bombarding you with complex notions in the beginning of your course, we start by involving you in a real conversation. Through this approach, you will be able to have your first French conversation after only 5 minutes of using our app. Encouraging, right?
Our linguists have also identified one of the major secrets of how to speak French: listening to native speakers in a natural setting. Because our brain is wired to absorb the information we hear, our experts made listening an essential part of learning French. As a result, during all our lessons you will hear natives speak in French clearly, correctly and in context. This way, you will pick up the natural French pronunciation of core words effortlessly.
The most important part of learning French is getting a chance to practice what you learned by speaking the language. Otherwise, it’s all lost, like most of what we’ve learned in school. That’s exactly why our language experts have included French speaking exercises in every lesson. No need to find a French friend to help you rehearse. No need to go to a French speaking country. How can this be possible? We have created a high-tech computer program you can use to have a smart conversation with (really!). We call it the Mondly Chatbot. Sit back and it engages in a conversation with you using a friendly, native French voice. Don’t be shy: respond to its questions or even ask it one. Like magic, it will understand what you are saying and respond like a regular person would. No wonder millions of people around the world have already tried our Chatbot to learn how to speak French.
The great minds of our time consider Virtual Reality (VR) to be the future of technology. Acknowledging the tremendous potential of this technology, we worked with our world class linguists to shape the future of language learning through Virtual Reality.
