This one-day session brings together the idea and consideration about the use of Virtual Reality (VR) for language education. As a simulated experience of the real world, VR has a possibility to be adopted for language education, for example, it can provide a variety of simulated situations where students can practice their conversation. In this session, we will explore the possible uses of VR for language learning, including how far the VR has been developed and its potential and limits.

This event is part of the Global Festival of Asia Pacific Language and Culture Education
