The Foreign Language Center (FLC) announced today the launch of a new, free language app, Expand Your World. Users of the Expand Your World app will be able to enjoy a cultural, demographic, economic, and linguistic journey through the 31 languages taught at Ohio State.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to learn about the array of languages taught here at Ohio State,” said Abhijit Varde, FLC designer/developer. “Whether you are thinking about learning a new a language, studying abroad, or simply wanting to explore another culture, the Expand Your World app will give you a taste of languages and cultures from all over the world.”
The new and free app contains a short introductory video, a quiz, and 25 practice audio phrases in each language. This self-contained app requires a network access to enjoy high-definition audio and video content and is compatible with both iOS and Android tablets and phones.
