"Lingoland is an excellent example of how embedding real-time communications into an application dramatically changes the user experience. Previously, language learning was more of a one-way flow," said Tony Zhao, founder and CEO of Agora.io. "By leveraging real-time communications, Lingoland's 3D learning environments are fun, contextual, and deliver immediate feedback - all key elements when an individual learns to master a foreign language."
Lingoland chose to work with Agora.io for its real-time communications capabilities across the globe, mobile last mile optimization, and easy-to-integrate SDKs. The implement greatly helped the startup to boost development speed, which only took two weeks with no upfront cost.
Digital English language learning reached revenues of $2.8 billion in 2015 and is projected to grow to $3.8 billion by 2020. In 2015, China was the top buying country in the Asia Pacific region, followed by South Korea and Japan1- countries where Lingoland has already established a user base.
Lingoland is a foreign language immersion program that students can experience from home. In the Lingoland app, students are matched with live English tutors in realistic 3D scenes like San Francisco, New York and London. In these scenes, the Lingoland tutor roleplays with the student offering them real-world practice in common scenarios like ordering food in a restaurant, shopping, and talking about travel destinations. Lingoland is available on iOS and Android.
