Interaction, immersion, and motivation are key to language learning, but finding and maintaining native speaking experiences are difficult. COCINA, a Google Home assistant, seeks to solve this problem by allowing language learners to practice conversations in the comfort of their own kitchen. By providing recipe guidance in Spanish and a translated version in English, our users will be able to cook a cultural dish while practicing their listening, comprehension, and conversational skills in Spanish.
