Virtual Worlds are considered an effective tool for role-play and simulation scenarios, providing a rich context in which toset activities. When students form real relationships, have real interactions, experience real emotions and really socialize, can the experience still be described as “simulation”?This presentation describes how virtual worlds can go beyond simple simulations and role-play, achieving a deeper level of engagement and immersion by using massive exposure to the target language with continuous feedback to achieve faster learning.
