Learning a language is a marathon, not a sprint. To become proficient, you need consistent practice over time. So, at Kansei, we’ve introduced a gamification strategy in language learning that aims to make your learning journey not just engaging, but also help you drive consistency.
Why Gamification in Language Learning is Crucial?
Consistency matters enormously when you’re learning a new language. Therefore, it’s not about cramming tons of information in one go, but rather how often you actively engage with the language. To address this, we’ve designed a fun and motivating Heart ❤️ system that turns every interaction with our AI companions into a meaningful experience.
Meet the Heart ❤️ System
Firstly, our Heart system offers a fresh twist on the traditional “streak” system. We know life can be unpredictable, so instead of breaking your streak when you miss a day, we offer hearts as a cushion.
Here’s How It Works:
- Each user starts with 3 ❤️.
- Each day you converse with an AI companion, you keep your hearts intact.
- If you skip a day, you lose one ❤️.
- If you run out of hearts, your streak breaks!
- Fortunately, we reset all hearts at the start of each month, giving you a new beginning.
- Keep in mind we calculate the daily tally for maintaining or losing your streak at midnight UTC. You can see this timer in your user profile page.
The Importance of Daily Streaks
Moreover, maintaining a daily streak with our companions serves two important functions:
Incorporating Language Learning into Your Routine
A daily streak system works like a charm when it comes to habit-building. It’s easy to put off language practice when life gets busy, but a streak offers a compelling reason to set aside a few minutes each day. Over time, this consistency turns into a habit. Soon, you won’t even need a reminder to chat with our AI companions; it becomes as natural as checking your emails or social media. Through this mechanism, language learning becomes interwoven with your daily routine, drastically improving the retention and application of your newfound language skills.
Reinforcing and Applying Your Knowledge
Each interaction with our AI companions acts like a mini-quiz, challenging you to recall vocabulary and apply grammar rules. But unlike traditional quizzes, the stakes are low; the focus is on learning, not grading. These daily touchpoints serve as constant reinforcement, making it far easier for you to recall words or phrases when you need them most—like in an impromptu conversation or during a trip abroad. Over time, these small, daily engagements lead to significant improvements, transforming your passive knowledge into active, ready-to-use skills.
Coming Soon: More Ways to Engage and Succeed
We’re always striving to make your language learning experience more enriching and fun! Here’s a sneak peek at what we have in store for you:
Leaderboards: Get Competitive!
Who says learning can’t be a friendly competition? By the end of the month, we’re launching leaderboards that rank users based on their daily streaks. Climbing up the leaderboard isn’t just for bragging rights; it’s a motivating factor that fosters a community of committed language learners.
Companion’s Best Friend Awards: Make a Real Connection and Get Rewarded!
Ever wondered who’s the most engaging conversationalist for each of our AI companions? Soon, you won’t have to wonder anymore! We’re introducing awards for each companion’s ‘Best Friend,’ celebrating the user who has the most meaningful and frequent interactions with individual companions.
And here’s the cherry on top: as a Best Friend, you’ll receive a personalized letter from your favorite companion! This isn’t just a thank-you note; it’s a heartwarming letter that dives into the unique bond you’ve formed. So you’re not just gaining language proficiency; you’re also forming connections that feel real and personal.
Wrapping It Up
In conclusion, Kansei aims to integrate language learning seamlessly into your daily life. By doing this, our Heart system and daily streaks not only make the experience more enjoyable but also highlight the essential element for mastering a language: consistency.
