Missing having an English speaking companion? Then, this app is perfect for you.
You can keep an interactive conversation with a video character so you can work on your English speaking skills even if you have no one to practice with.
First, you listen to a dialogue in a video as many times as you need. You’ll be shown pictures to link with the meaning of the words. That way, you can focus on speaking instead of reading a text.
Then, you can read the dialogues to better understand them before you start speaking. Finally, you get to play the role of one of the characters in the video and immerse yourself in the conversation.
