Linguists have long considered immersion as the most important part and the most effective way of learning a new language. A new Slovakian startup (Lingibli) is incorporating QR Barcodes in its language learning service. Just by scanning QR Barcodes with a smartphone learners will be able to “immerse” themselves in their chosen new language. After scanning a barcode, placed on a real world object, the user will be taken to an audio file on the language app that will allow them to hear the correct pronunciation of the word that represents the object from a native speaker.
Really really coo huh!
