Finally, you can learn Chinese on Duolingo

TwitterFacebook

If you’ve always wanted to learn the most widely spoken language in the world, now’s your chance. 

Starting today, the free language-learning app Duolingo is offering a brand new course: Mandarin Chinese. 

If you don’t speak a word of Chinese, never fear: The course first teaches you the basics of names, numbers, and greetings, before moving into foods, occupations, hobbies, and conversational skills for every occasion. 

If you already know some Chinese, there’s a placement test that will allow you to skip over early parts of the course. Be warned, however, that Duolingo starts with both speaking and reading/writing right off the bat. If you’re like me, and can speak some tentative Mandarin but can’t read or write a word, you’ll want to start at the beginning.  Read more…

Oculus Rift bundle discounted to $379 until December 20th

After permanently slashing the Rift and Touch combo price to $399/£399, Oculus is at it again. With Christmas fast approaching, the VR headset bundle is now the cheapest it's been since Black Friday, at $379/£369. (Heads up that Amazon UK is still honoring the £349 Black Friday price for now, though.) The price cut means the device is fast approaching the more affordable Windows Mixed Reality gear on the market. But, the limited time deal is only up until 11.59PM (PT) on December 20th, so you'll have to be quick. You can grab the kit online via Oculus' website and in select stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg.

With new games and apps making it onto the Oculus Store everyday, you won't be at a loss for entertainment come Christmas. Aside from the fresh beta release of the Rift Core 2.0 VR interface, Arktika.1 brought some motion-controlled action (from the makers of the Metro series) to the device in October. A companion experience for Pixar's latest smash, Coco, also arrived around the same time. And, you'd be silly to miss out on rhythmic shooter Rez Infinite, which we found to be a transcendental VR journey.
