Abstract

In Taiwan’s foreign language instruction, contextualized vocabulary learning has been receiving increasing attention. This study aims to create a task-based virtual language learning environment to assist students in their lexical development. The pre-test/post-test non-equivalent experimental control group design will be used to determine the effectiveness of the Dragon Virtual World Environment (DVWE) system created by the university. Results show that student use of the virtual reality system shall result in their word gains and lexical development and in reviving their syntactic knowledge.
