Brown Bag: VR in Second Language Learning

Please join us Thursday, November 8 for Amy Liang's Brown Bag talk

Abstract:

Learning a new language can always be exciting but at times frustrating. But how come we never felt learning our first language so hard when we were a little kid? And as grownups having the better executive functioning, why would this advantage we have in return acted as a barrier in our new language learning experience? This short presentation will be looking at the three basic linguistic levels, discuss how and why was it harder for adults to learn a new language, and how can we use modern technologies like AI and VR to help with the language learning experience. 

Bio:

Amy just finished her Bachelor of Arts degree with Psychology major and Human Resource Management minor. She is generally interested in studies related to second language acquisition; she is also passionate in learning about new ideas that could help people with their language learning experiences.
