Rosetta Stone Inc (NYSE:RST) has just announced the launch of an application for the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) entertainment machine called Discover Languages Xbox.
The new program by the language learning firm teaches only English and Spanish at the moment, but given Rosetta Stone Inc (NYSE:RST)’s vast selection of language learning materials for other languages, it is not impossible that new languages will be added to the application soon.
Rosetta Stone Inc (NYSE:RST)’s new application teaches people new language skills through immersive simulation, the company notes. In the app, people will use the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) gaming console to have virtual experiences that will help them gain new words and the grammar of English and Spanish.
The new gamified language learning software aims to recreate real-world interactions. Think of it as like virtually going to a place you are going to visit soon before your actual trip.
“You’ll explore several locations in the Discovery Zone and chat with the characters you find there. In the Training Zone, you’ll solidify the concepts you encountered with study recommendations, cultural tips, phrase books, and of course, more games,” Rosetta Stone said in their announcement.
The application also lets users track achievements and repeat interactions.
