Trips to Japan (coming soon in April 2024)

Each lesson will take less than one hour in VR to complete. There are 40 VR lessons and most people will take between two and six months to complete them all.

Each VR lesson has a short video tutorial in English, outlining the main topics covered in that lesson.

The 360 lessons are completely in Japanese to immerse you in the language. They start with a presentation, where new vocabulary is introduced and you repeat phrases or answer questions using speech recognition to progress.

The presentation is followed by a game, song, or roleplay for further Japanese practice. You then receive a cherry blossom petal to celebrate the completion of each classroom lesson.

After the classroom, you travel to Japan to have conversations with native speakers, using the language you have just learned. Soon we will also be adding some beautiful scenes from around Japan with cultural commentary, as a reward for finishing each lesson.

We provide non-VR activities in our Library, and recommendations such as mobile apps, podcasts and YouTube videos that are useful for reinforcing your learning in short sessions outside of VR.

Trips are virtual, immersive media explorations of places with narration, quizzes, and music that help you understand the culture and history of the location. They vary in length from 5 to 30 minutes long.

Trips to Britain are narrated adventures around the UK for advanced English speakers, with questions every few minutes about the culture and history you have been discovering.

Trips to Spain are in two different styles: Gallery, and Video Trips. They are suitable for beginner, intermediate, and fluent speakers.

The next playlist to be added by the end of May will be Trips to Japan. This will include a 15 episode series about the history of the country and 6 cultural experiences. We are also still adding content to the Japanese lessons to enhance the learning experience.

We will then be updating the 5 Spanish lessons, as well as adding new Trips to Spain and Britain for beginner, intermediate, and fluent speakers.

Immersive media is a collective term that often describes experiencing 3D, 360 videos and photos using a VR or AR headset.

Dynamic Languages uses immersive media to capture real-world moments that can be relived with added context and detail. This immersion in real places with real people creates memorable and fun experiences that can help with learning and cultural understanding.

Yes. The app is available to install on the Meta App Lab Store.

On the app, you can demo every type of experience available.

Why not try your first Japanese lesson for free? Or visit Britain and see the wonders of Tintagel castle? You can even take your first lesson in Spanish or explore Barcelona, and Seville's most famous festival.

Currently Dynamic Languages only works with Meta Quest 2, 3, and Pro headsets. There are no current plans to release on other headsets.

The Japanese programme has just launched, with some reviews in our Discord. We do have testimonials on the website about Spanish. You can check them out here.

The time it takes to become fluent varies significantly depending on the language, your ability, and the time you spend learning.

Most people will take many years to reach a fluency, but students can reach a good level of conversational ability in a surprisingly short space of time.

The Japanese lessons will take between two and six months to complete. After this, you will be able to have basic conversations with people on a variety of topics, building relationships and enhancing any visits to Japan.

The Japanese and English content was shot in 8K3D. Currently the app supports up to 6K3D video (Quest 2 maximum) with photos in 8K3D.

Spanish content is available in 4K and 6K monoscopic video and photos.

We offer monthly and annual subscriptions. With the annual subscriptions, you get 12 months for the price of 10.

Dynamic Languages is like a VR Netflix for language learning and cultural understanding. We expect students to subscribe for a few months, blast through the content they want to experience, and then unsubscribe.

In this way, the 40 Japanese lessons will be completed at a cost of $50-$250, which is a fantastic deal for the quality of instruction. Other online Japanese courses, university/college programmes, and private lessons will cost 10-1000x the cost of Dynamic Languages.

Dynamic Languages is for people wanting to learn a skill and better themselves. Yes, we've made it fun and entertaining but it is still an educational endeavour. It is best compared to a university class rather than a free mobile app with ads.

We do not offer a lifetime subscription. Hosting high quality 8K3D video is costly so we use a subscription model so that current students are paying for the bandwidth they are using.

Maybe one day Dynamic Languages will have a free version with ads/sponsors, but right now, we need funds to grow the app and produce more content. We are not prioritising an ad-heavy app with all the complexity that entails.

Yes, schools love using Dynamic Languages to supplement their teaching. You can find out more about multi-headset licenses and implementation here.

The app is for people interested in languages and culture. Currently we have English, Spanish, and Japanese content with more languages coming soon. It is suitable for all ages.

We have settings that allow the app to be displayed while lying down making it accessible to people with mobility issues.

Dynamic Spanish first launched in 2018 and is the predecessor to Dynamic Languages. It was our first attempt at building compelling experiences and we have learned a lot since then, especially when it comes to video production quality.

This Spanish content is available on the Dynamic Languages app, and it will be updated in the coming months. Find out more here.

It was founded by husband-wife nomads, Dave and Katie, in 2018 after they fell in love with VR video experiences. The founders are filmmakers, language lovers, explorers, and writers with a remote development team.

We're a bootstrapped startup, based in the UK, with a small but brilliant team of language experts and media production specialists. We do not have investors - no Venture Capital, no rich Uncle, and no crypto fortune. We invest all profit back into app development and video production/distribution costs.
