From appArray, the English conversation application "Speak Buddy" for smartphones has started to be provided. By utilizing the voice recognition of smartphones and AI characters, you can train your speaking ability regardless of time or place. People who are embarrassed to hear about group lessons and those who are worried about interpersonal lessons can feel free to work on it.
If you select Free Trial (1 week) after downloading, you can use all services. In scenario mode, you can enjoy conversations in stories set according to themes such as "travel" and "daily life", and when you try to open a trip, you will find essential menus for overseas travel such as "immigration" and "restaurant order". It was prepared.
To use it, just select the appropriate option for the AI question and pronounce it. The recognized English text is displayed on the screen, and you are praised that you can pronounce it well. There is no limit to the response time, so it is also important to relax and work on it.
Furthermore, in the ability judgment test, you can level your English conversation ability in 100 stages by answering questions from AI.
The impression I used is an app recommended for intermediate and above who can understand the meaning and reading of English words and sentence examples to some extent. Depending on the way you speak and your voice quality, you may not be able to read it as you intended, so it is a good idea to first judge the compatibility with a free trial. After that, please note that it will not proceed smoothly unless a stable communication environment is secured.
If you get used to the operation, you can talk with AI at a tempo like a real conversation, so it may be an effective tool for those who want to speak out anyway. In the future, it is planned to implement a "free talk mode" where you can freely talk with AI characters.
Compatible OS is iOS 10.0 or higher. Free to download. After the one-week free trial period, you can use all the functions for 1,080 yen (tax included) per month (currently the sale price is 600 yen per month).
