Learn Immersive is a San Francisco-based startup that uses a virtual reality platform to help you learn languages by transporting you to real-world environments.

The platform is designed to simulate real-world scenarios where you're immersed in a particular language environment. Users can click on objects in their virtual reality environment and receive a translation. They can even work on puzzles to test and improve their language skills.

Learn Immersive will give users the ability to enjoy virtual field trips to environments such as a grocery store in Chinatown or a clothing store in Puerto Rico. Using a virtual reality headset such as the Oculus Rift, users can 'travel' to these locations and immerse themselves in the local language.
