The 3 pillars of language immersion
Start building fluency right away through live conversations with real people in realistic immersive situations. Gain the language communication skills you need to achieve your goals from day one.
Language learning is more than just knowing words and phrases. Engage in the culture by interacting with new traditions, stories, celebrations and more. Developing cultural awareness is key to removing barriers to human connection.
Create new relationships with other Members who share a similar passion to experience the most in life through language and cultural fluency. This is what Immerse is really all about!

What does tomorrow hold?
Research shows that virtual reality:
Creates immersive, contextualized, experiential learning.
Having real conversations and doing activities together in immersion settings leads to faster language learning and enhances memory. Research has even shown that your brain processes language learning in immersive VR the same way as when you learn your first language! This builds stronger neurological pathways for long-term fluency.
Reduces distractions that exist in other learning contexts.
VR fully immerses you in the learning context and in your live conversations with other Members, meaning you will be able to fully focus on the language you are learning. You won’t be tempted to check your phone or be distracted by other things going on around you.
Improves confidence and reduces anxiety.
In VR, you are represented by an avatar. Studies show that this reduces anxiety and gives you more confidence to practice the language. This allows you to become fluent faster!
Supports social learning.
In Immerse, you build social connections by interacting in real-time with a global community of other language learners and expert speakers. Research shows that social learning within VR leads to better and more practical language skills that transfer to real-world situations.
