Regardless what your native tongue is, learning a new language has always been a huge challenge for most people, especially if you don't live in the foreign country.

On August 26th 2021, Mondly VR brings language learning experience in VR to the Oculus Quest, while previously only available on the Oculus Go, SteamVR, and Gear VR.
There's nothing better to learn a new language through learning rather than learning from text book.
