Things to Remember 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.

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. The video above guides you through the app and the controls you'll need to participate in the lessons.

Stand up when instructed. You need to fully engage with these lessons to really get the most out of them.

Have fun! This should be an enjoyable learning experience, so try not to get too frustrated if you're struggling. Follow our advice and you'll be speaking Spanish in no time.
