Pioneer in Interactive Language-Learning Doki Introduces New iOS-Based Language Apps

Doki's 5 Different Language Apps Are Available Now From the iTunes App Store Worldwide

LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Education software company, Eazyspeak, announced today the global release of its Doki series of language-learning apps for the iPhone and iPad devices. 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.

The guiding concept behind Doki is to learn basic foreign language dialogue and vocabulary used in everyday life through an animated environment without the use of grammar -- i.e. conversation-based language learning. 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:

  • Comprehensive language lessons: Doki offers 51 lessons divided into 14 chapters designed to teach users a language beginning with basic words and phrases.
  • Animated, real-world locations: Learning a language is easier if you're learning words and phrases in the context of how you will use them. For example, in the Hotel chapter the user learns how to make a hotel reservation and in the Travel Agency chapter the user learns how to make travel arrangements. Doki offers the user fun, witty, animated scenarios in these diverse locations.
  • Extensive language support for global audiences: Doki's on-screen instructions and in-app 'Help' files are available in 17 different languages.
  • Doki Further: Doki Further offers advanced-beginner level language instruction for users who have worked through all 51 lessons of the initial Doki language app, or have a basic proficiency in the given language.
  • Try before you buy: Doki offers two free introductory chapters for every language. Users can try Doki's app before buying additional chapters.

"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," confided Jane Kayantas, Director of Doki. "The idea of learning a new language can be a little intimidating for so many people and 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. Doki is a unique app, allowing someone, for the first time, to experience language-learning as a fun interactive activity!"

"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. "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. The iPad and iPhone are amazing new tools of learning, and we made sure that their unique interactive features have been fully utilized to enhance the learning experience."

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.
