Gabriella: What’s the one vocab app that will teach you 30 languages?
Gabriella: Welcome to Innovative Language.com Sunday News! I'm Gabriella and I'll be hosting today's Sunday news with one of the staff here at Innovative Language... Yuriy!
Yuriy: Hi everyone! Yuriy here.
Gabriella: In this Sunday News, you’re going to learn all about the upcoming Visual Dictionary Pro for the iPhone and iPad
Yuriy: Listeners, that’s 30 languages you can start learning....
Gabriella: Can you believe that? And they’re all in one little app!
Yuriy: So anywhere you go in the world... and anytime you’re ready for a new language
Gabriella: Or if you’re just really ambitious to master all the languages..
Yuriy: Ambition is a good thing Gabriella! Listeners... this app has got you covered.
Gabriella: So, if you haven’t heard about Visual Dictionary Pro...
Yuriy: ...and how it helps you master vocab in real-life situations, listen up!
Gabriella: We’ll give you a sneak preview of this app. It’s not available quite yet, but it’s coming soon!
Yuriy: So you can’t have it yet! Now, lets get into it. What’s this app about, Gabriella?
Gabriella: Real life context. Visual Dictionary Pro is all about learning through real life context.
Yuriy: So you get 26 real life scenarios that you can zoom and tap and swipe through on your iPhone or iPad
Gabriella: City streets, supermarkets, hospitals, train stations, schools... and everything you’re likely to find in these places
Yuriy: You explore these vibrant scenarios and master over 550 must-know words as you go along.
Gabriella: So, how’s it done?
Yuriy: Simply tap on objects, places, or anything you’ll find in that scenario and you’ll get the word
Gabriella: And with each word, you get the translation, the audio pronunciation and sample sentences
Yuriy: You can also save words to your wordbank for later review too!
Gabriella: So, Yuriy, why is this method so effective for vocabulary learning and speaking the language?
Yuriy: Well first... if you want to speak MORE, you need more words, right?
Gabriella: Yes, that’s right...
Yuriy: But it’s so effective because once you learn a word in a real-life context, you’ll see it again and again and never forget it.
Gabriella: It’s definitely not like reading a book... where you read a word and might forget it later
Yuriy: Gabriella, it’s just like walking down a street... looking at something and instantly recognizing what it means in another language.
Gabriella: Or... rather, in 30 languages! Learning through real-life context has to be one of the best ways to learn!
Yuriy: And listeners, you’ll learn languages from Arabic, to Japanese, to Vietnamese.
Gabriella: And If you do the maths, 550 words per language?
Yuriy: That’s a big number. That’s 16,500 words total you get with Visual Dictionary Pro.
Gabriella: Remember listeners, all languages are available to you as soon as you get the app!
Yuriy: I bet the aspiring polyglots among you will love it!
Gabriella: This app is certainly perfect for language lovers, Yuriy.
Yuriy: And definitely travelers, since you learn the real-life practical vocabulary you’ll need on your trips.
Gabriella: Quick question though, will there be a free version too?
Yuriy: Good question, Gabriella. There is going to be a free version and it’ll come with all the languages.
Gabriella: So listeners, you’ll be able to test drive this app with all 30 languages...
Yuriy: And each language comes with over 104 words and 3 sample scenarios.
Gabriella: That’s over 3,000 words total inside the free App!
Yuriy: That’s right. And if you love this learning style and want to boost your vocabulary...
Gabriella: You can always unlock a specific language by doing a simple in-app upgrade.
Yuriy: Or you can just get the complete app with ALL 26 scenarios and words!
Gabriella: So when can our listeners get this app?
Yuriy: Listeners, you can expect to see it in the next few weeks. We’ll be sure to make a big announcement when it hits the iTunes App Store.
