Learning Spanish in Second Life - A Reflection

After about seven weeks of learning Spanish in Second Life I have realised what a superb educational resource it really is - especially for languages!
Lesson after lesson we have been placed in real life situations in a Second Life city, locations have included a hotel, supermarket, bank, in a park having a picnic etc., and finishing with a party and speed dating - see the first photograph!

We have had Spanish speaking teachers and been part of a group of international students.

Humour has played a huge part in the learning process built in by the teachers who made the whole process very entertaining, and of course, in the sometimes very funny language mistakes being made.
