Doki's Five Different Language Apps Now Available at the iTunes App Store
By Meenakshi Shankar, TMCnet Contributor
The idea of learning a new language can be a little intimidating for so many people for so many different reasons. The good news is that, thanks to technological advancements and the ubiquity of mobile devices, anyone can now master the basics of a language, with nothing more than a smartphone and a little commitment.
Education software company Eazyspeak is a developer of Doki, a solution that helps its users learn basic foreign language dialogue and vocabulary used in everyday life through an animated environment without the use of grammar. The company is growing further with the global release of its Doki series of language-learning apps for the iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad devices. Doki is a unique app that makes language-learning as a fun interactive activity.
The five different Doki apps include: English, French, German, Iberian Spanish, and Latin American Spanish. Doki Further, the advanced-beginner level language apps are available on the iPad only, and offer additional language instruction -- English, French, German, and Iberian Spanish.
"For many, learning a new language involves unhappy memories of stern high-school teachers, painfully awkward role-playing scenarios, and endless piles of language workbooks," said Jane Kayantas, director of Doki.
"The fact remains, that today we are truly a global society, due to social media, television/film and of course, cheap travel. With that trend, both adults and children around the world are eager to learn new languages," added Kayantas.
To ensure Doki is pedagogically sound, a team of educational experts in the UK was formed to evaluate the app. Some of Doki's notable features include:
Doki is the only method that dispenses with grammar and even writing, and allows someone to interact with animated characters as many times as he likes, in the comfort of his sitting room.
All 14 of the Doki apps are currently available for download from the iTunes App Store, including Learn Basic English with Doki for iPhone, Learn Basic French with Doki for iPhone, Learn Basic Latin American Spanish with Doki for iPad, and Learn German with Doki Further for iPad.
