Description: House of Languages VR – is a new way to master English, German or Spanish languages. It is a highly-effective way for learning new vocabulary using several channels of perception in VR: see the object and its corresponding name, hear the name of the object, repeat the name of the object!

Review: House of Languages VR is a language learning app that allows English speaking people to learn German and Spanish, German-speaking people to learn English and Spanish and Spanish speaking people to learn English and German (so far anyway, but more languages are apparently coming). With its cute characters, cartoon style of graphics and cutesy sounds this is perfect for kids who are looking to learn the basic words of a foreign language. This app isn’t going to let you speak a new language in a navie tongue, but you will learn a few words to get by if you are going on holiday to that country.

Done via a collection of mini-games the more you play, the more you will learn and the further you will get in the game. To be fair it features hundreds of words from household items to ordering food, but it could do with a lot of improvement. Things like the character speaking full Spanish with no English subtitles (and vice-versa) and some issues with the fonts of words and not being able to read them. But I give full marks for a great educational tool and something that I wouldn’t have thought VR could be useful for. House of Languages VR is well worth a download, provided you have some use for information it can teach you, otherwise, it’s pretty much pointless.
