Say “Alexa, open C-3PO Translates” to learn how!
A new Alexa language class can teach Star Wars fans to speak Wookiee or Droidspeak. Yes, you read that correctly 🙂
It’s not quite Duolingo for intergalactic travel, but the lessons are a fun and silly way to interact with C-3PO who leads the class. Plus, they’re only 5 minutes long.
(And who doesn’t want to learn to howl with proper intonation, just like Chewbacca?)
To get started…
- Say “Alexa, open C-3PO Translates.” Your host, C-3PO, along with assistant SD-89, will offer you the choice of two language lessons: Shyriiwook (aka Wookiee), or Droidspeak
- Pick Shyriiwook (Wookiee) and you’ll learn two phrases of growls and howls. You try it first, following the words on the screen, then Chewbacca will speak, showing you how it should really sound
- Then try Droidspeak — you’ll beep and doop along with R2-D2, which is, admittedly, pretty fun 🙂
Each lesson ends with a chance to improvise a command — go crazy, because why not?!
