Description: VR New York Story starts with an intention of designing a game that provides more effective English learning environment to non-English speakers. People who want to develop their English ability are not required to spend time and money on overseas study anymore!

As a total solution for English Speaking Education, we provide 3,800 sentences which include 240 key sentences and 720 core sentences, and Sound Recognition technology to evaluate English proficiency of users. This is our first series that include 60 units. We also plan to release a full range of 240 units in order so you can count on what’s coming next!

Review: ‘VR New York Story’ is an adventure game and language learner all in one with the idea being Chinese people can learn American style English in a natural, fun way. I should point out straight away that unless you can read Chinese this app is not for you as almost all the text is in that language. While the graphics are a little basic as with the interactions I can see this being a useful app for someone coming to New York from China, but having been to New-York myself I can promise you most of the locals are nowhere near as friendly as they are in this app making the topic of conversation started kind of pointless. But I did like the style of learning, so thumbs up for that. But at a mind-blowing £46.49 you would have to be a fool, or desperate to get it and at that price, there is simply no way I can recommend it.
