Which VR headset?

Dynamic Spanish is best used with the Oculus Quest headsets.

Dynamic Spanish also works with the Oculus Go & Rift but these were sadly "sunsetted" by Oculus. We still love using our Go and Rift to explore new places with Dynamic Spanish Trips. Oculus and VR Languages will continue to provide security patches and bug fixes until the end of 2022.

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?


Oculus Quest, Quest 2, and Go

Install the Dynamic Spanish VR apps using SideQuest or App Lab. If you're new to SideQuest then our tutorial here will help.


Oculus Rift

Dynamic Spanish is very easy to set up on the Oculus Rift. Once you enroll on the course, we will email you instructions for installing the app, via the Oculus Store.


Non-Oculus PCVR Headsets

Dynamic Spanish can be used with HTC Vive by following these instructions. If you have a different headset, please sign up and we will try to accommodate you.


Mobile (Cellphone) VR Device

Dynamic Spanish is available on Vimeo as 360 videos. These videos do not have speech recognition and other features of Dynamic Spanish are more limited as well.

Before you purchase Dynamic Spanish for Mobile VR, please do the following:

  • Install the Vimeo app (available on iOS and Android).
  • Check your device compatibility by watching this clip from La Feria de Abril, an intermediate level Trip about a famous Spanish dance festival.
  • Consider purchasing a Mobile VR headset such as the Desktek. Google Cardboard is the cheapest option but is the least comfortable.

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.
