Microsoft launched a language app called Learn Chinese that uses AI as a conversational assistant

Microsoft launched a new application, appropriately named called Learn Chinese, that gives users the chance to learn Chinese with an AI assistant helping them along the way. Users start out learning basic words and phrases in Chinese. The app comes with audio to teach proper pronunciation.

When users have the basics down, the app instructs them to place these new phrases in a sample conversation. From here, the AI reads what the user says and breaks down what they likely wanted to say, presenting the user with a final score. All of the lessons on the app come in chapters the user must unlock through progression. As of right now the app comes with two modes, one for beginners and the other for those of an intermediate level.

If Microsoft continues to add additional languages to its AI's abilities, they could give Duolingo some healthy competition.
