LiVE is an acronym for Learning in a Virtual Environment. It is a role-playing game designed to teach English as the player progresses through - and learns about – Sydney, Australia.
It works as a tool for ESL facilitators worldwide, by promoting independent learning through the use of a storyline, supported by wikis and websites.
The presentation will deal with how to use and download this free, innovative tool.
