English language learning

(not English literature)


English Language Learning at the University of Southern Queensland:

The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) in Australia has been using Second Life with on-campus students from Asian countries who are learning English by immersion. In the business English course, a building in Second Life simulates an office that is used for role play and practice. A series of practice pods allow pairs of students to practice before they role play in front of their peers.

The British Council

In Second Life, the British Council Isles, 3 sims which have been transferred from the Teen Grid, have spaces set up for role-playing, language learning quests (self-access games) based on UK legends such as Robin Hood and King Arthur, puzzles and fun activities (check out English using SMS in the mobile shop) and much more.
