Los Angeles, CA, December 03, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- MyLingo, a new educational social network for language learning, announced its revamped music video interface launched last Friday. MyLingo provides users with thousands of the most popular music videos in French, Spanish and English subtitled in several languages. Thanks to the use of a variety of interactive tools, MyLingo aims to provide its users with “the fun approach to language learning.” Users can not only watch the videos but can translate subtitles into their own language and help create content for the community. To date MyLingo is the only music video community that includes translated subtitles.
The technology behind MyLingo is pioneering, but the idea is quite simple: Learning is most effective when done simultaneously with an enjoyable activity. Music videos, especially those from US artists, are extremely popular online. Various studies support the view that music is one of the most powerful tools used to increase cognitive function and retention. This approach to learning is derived from cognitive theories of “pop-culture learning” which is an alternative to traditional scripted audio learning.
Interactivity is a key concept at MyLingo. Native speakers help learners in a reciprocal virtuous cycle, meeting new friends around the world and growing with the ever-expanding MyLingo community.
MyLingo’s innovative method has already been extremely well-received in several Latin American countries, with television coverage in Peru and Colombia.
It is MyLingo’s objective to build the best language-learning tool in the world, and there are many applications in the works. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be informed of new ground-breaking language-learning applications before they are announced to the public.
