Learn English in VR

English Language Learning in the VR

Of the 4 skills, Reading, Writing and Listening can be studied alone. Speaking cannot… until now.


VR allows for a multitude of scenarios, bringing learners into situations which instructors struggle to provide. Using voice recognition to work on speech production ensures that learners are active participants in the process. With a judgement-free, distraction-free environment, confidence is allowed to flourish. And a confident, motivated learner is a successful language student.
