Simulated conversation scenarios for language learning.
Converso is a language learning app that utilizes an AI-powered chatbot to help learners practice conversation in various scenarios. It offers a wide range of conversation scenarios that simulate real-life situations such as grocery shopping, getting a haircut, or making restaurant reservations. Users can have natural conversations with the chatbot, going in any direction they desire, and receive instant help on translations, unfamiliar words, or suggestions on phrasing sentences from their AI tutor. Converso does not provide basic grammar or vocabulary lessons, but it is designed primarily to help intermediate language learners get conversational practice in different settings. The app is compatible with various devices, including smartphones, tablets, and computers.Converso is an experimental project that is currently free and does not require an account. However, the developers plan to introduce a premium plan in the future to subsidize development and server costs. The app relies on the user's web browser's built-in text-to-speech capabilities, which may affect pronunciation accuracy. The AI model is trained on millions of conversations in dozens of languages but can still make mistakes. Users are encouraged to provide feedback on Discord if they find a mistake. Overall, Converso offers a fun and engaging way to practice language skills through natural conversations in a diverse range of scenarios.
