Every Buddy lesson uses the PPP structure to maximize learning outcomes:
Buddy engages the child in small talk to help them feel comfortable.
Buddy introduces a new English word/phrase using flashcards, 3D objects, animations, video fragments and/or sounds.
The child then practices the word/phrase with Buddy through voice-based exercises and conversational games.
Buddy challenges the child to use the word/phrase correctly in conversation.
Learning a language in a busy classroom setting can be challenging. Buddy is an effective way to supplement your child’s English education at home and even improve their grades.

“Voice-based virtual tutor, this concept may sound simple, but there is science behind that. From a psychology of learning standpoint, the virtual talking character is an embodiment of the teacher. This approach creates an effect called epistemic trust, strengthening the student's motivation and engagement, and improving the learning outcomes.”
“The process of learning with Buddy feels much closer to a lesson with a real human tutor than a standard language learning app or a website. The focus on speaking and using voice-based interactions with a virtual character makes Buddy.ai a truly unique AI-based tool among the more common educational products. And in accordance with many scientific studies, including the surveys we conducted at ICT, this approach has many advantages over the standard graphic interfaces.”
"I firmly believe that in the future there will be a virtual reality based computer game where players will immerse into a natural learning environment to practice simulated real-life communication. Buddy is very close to this idea as it involves children into meaningful communication with an attractive character and allows them to function in various communicative situations that are based on real-life scenarios. This should allow them to apply these skills in the future."
The world’s first virtual tutor also makes the perfect classroom aide. In fact, hundreds of teachers are already using Buddy.
