Jump in and experience all the new things Immerse has to offer!
Your private homeroom has been simplified to make it easier than ever to jump straight into learning opportunities that help you on your journey to fluency while still maintaining a cozy and comfortable atmosphere.
NEW HOMEROOM MENU AND CONTENT
Your homeroom now holds all learning opportunities in one place. It's now easier than ever to immediately see what activities are available for you to jump into so that you can immediately start making progress on your fluency journey when joining Immerse.
Your new menu contains the following:
- Classes - All of our Guide-led classes are here. You will now always see the next 24 hours of classes for every fluency level within the language that you are learning. You can either immediately join a live class here or book a class that starts in the future.
(NEW) Events - Many of you loved our hosts leading different activities in The Commons, especially to practice conversations on interesting topics. We now have a dedicated space where our staff will be hosting events throughout the day across a multitude of locations. These new events can be joined at ANY TIME, so if you see one that is live, jump right in and join the fun!
(NEW) Practice - replacing "Explore Scenes." We now have 4 brand new Immerse AI-powered scenes that contain 3 or more avatars equipped to help you practice the most important conversations and situations in your target language at any time! You can join these publicly, use a code to join with a specific group of your peers, or join solo to practice in private. Complete the associated tasks with each avatar to progress in your fluency journey! Keep your eye out for more scenes, avatars, and scenarios as we add more over time.
Play - "The Commons" has now been converted into our first “Play” space! Jump in to this public area to meet new people and play language learning games. More games will be coming soon!
- Tutorial - Whether you are a new or veteran member, practicing the basics in Immerse (movement, grabbing, general controls, etc.) is now easier to jump into with the tutorial option. More tutorials will be coming soon!
- (NEW) You - All of your account details, avatar customization, review material, and general settings have been consolidated into one place for quick and easy access.
NOTE: The “Review Corner” has now been replaced by the new review content in this section. Just toggle the review button on the mirror and all of your previous and new review content will be available there!
NEW CLASS SCHEDULE
- We are extending class time to 35 minutes to give you even more valuable learning time with your Guide. Plus, you can stay after class to continue the conversation with your peers!
NEW TEXT TRANSLATION TOOL
- You will now have the ability to highlight and select any word or sentence presented in your target language and get a popup that has the translation, similar words, and example sentences using that word. This allow you to quickly get context of words you don’t know and be equipped to use them with additional examples. Applicable for Class Notes, AI conversations, in scene content, and more.
