An innovative approach to foreign language acquisition in multimodal collaborative virtual environments: Simulation design and implementation

Abstract

This research presents multimodal communication in collaborative virtual environments (CVEs) for English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners using text, voice, lip motion, and body language. The proposed CVE, named VEC3D 3.0, is based on a computer-assisted language learning (CALL) task-based design to elicit multimodal communication. The current work presents the task-based design, its application, and implementation in VEC3D 3.0.
