What is VR for Language Learning?

We are on a mission to innovate in education

Virtual Reality has become one of the most innovative teaching tools in many educational sectors. Through this project, we are developing an innovative platform for carrying out collaborative group language exercises in the classroom. These will provide an opportunity for students to practise the target language in a fully immersive way, mimicking the well-established methodology of ‘Total Physical Response’ in a way that has not been used in language learning before.

Join us for the latest news:

The Competitive Edge

These tools will enhance the effectiveness of language learning by boosting the motivation of students, increasing communicative competencies, improving student focus on details and enhancing their cognitive skills.

Explore endless possibilities!

Time and ideas are the only limits. Digital creation reveals a universe of opportunities waiting to be realised.

Virtual World 1 is literally out of this world. It is an International Space Station orbiting the earth with great views of our beautiful planet and the stars beyond.

The Space Station is divided into several different rooms, each accessible through an electronic door. There is also a door to the outside which gives access to a walk way.

World 2 was built as a remote, uninhibited tropical island. The idea was to create a visually appealing and colorful world, one that would encourage exploration. As any real island, it is surrounded by vast body of water on all sides, featuring clear blue skies, palm trees and mysterious caverns.

The original idea for this world was to host tasks that would have the most similarity to escape room activities. Indeed, both tasks created through VR4LL projects were developed in escape room fashion: students must complete a series of steps in specific order and with specific outcome in order to escape the island.

Virtual World 3 is an adventure into the world of the Ancient Romans. You are immersed into the heart of the Roman Empire with impressive architecture, amphitheater entertainment and political intrigue.

The Roman city is divided into several sections including a courtyard, a marketplace, a temple and even a colosseum with underground dungeons.

Virtual World 4 was created as a challenge to generate spaces that are more friendly to the environment, understanding that the planet’s resources are running out.

The world itself presents a wide variety of pre-task opportunities and discussion topics. As students begin their journey surrounded by trees and snow having to locate the hut using the sun’s positioning different topics could be aimed at.

We are looking for more partners to be part of our piloting efforts before releasing the app onto the world of language learning.
