*The Oculus Go was sadly "sunsetted" by Oculus. We still love using our Go to explore new places and going on Dynamic Spanish Trips. Oculus and VR Languages will continue to provide security patches and bug fixes until the end of 2022. Updates will need to be delivered using SideQuest.

Dynamic Spanish also works with mobile VR headsets and other PC VR headsets, such as the HTC Vive. Please see set up instructions below for more detail.

How do I set up Dynamic Spanish?

Mobile Device

Dynamic Spanish Trips is available on Vimeo as 360 videos. Check mobile VR compatibility with your device by installing the Vimeo app (available on iOS and Android) and watching this clip from La Feria de Abril, an intermediate level Trip about a famous Spanish dance festival. Access Trips through Magic Windows* with our mobile-friendly online course.

*Rotate your device to look into the 360 scene and explore Spain.


Oculus Quest

Install the Dynamic Spanish VR apps using SideQuest. Our tutorial here guides you through the process in a simple, step-by-step manner.

Dynamic Spanish is very easy to set up on the Oculus Go and Rift. Once you enroll on the course, we will email you instructions for installing the app, and we have also included them here for your reference.

How to behave in VR?

Sit somewhere comfortable but make sure you have space to stand up.

Try to be alone when you use the Dynamic Spanish app. You'll feel more confident speaking.

Speak when spoken to. Even if you get it wrong, it's better to try and fail than not try at all.

Pause and rewind the videos if you need to. You should go at the pace that suits you.

Sit on a swivel desk chair to look around and be fully immersed in the experience.

Have fun! These are enjoyable experiences, so try not to get too frustrated if you're struggling. Follow our advice and you'll be speaking Spanish in no time.
