English learning on Second Life

Second Life is an online virtual world in three dimensions. It is quickly becoming very popular and has millions of users throughout the world. What makes Second Life different is that it is not an online game, rather it is an online inversive environment. Second Life allows you to travel through an entirely imaginary world with buildings, people, cafes, streets, mountains, etc. Second Life has also created an intriguing new space for virtual classrooms that act very much like 'real-life' classrooms. Students attend presentations, teachers help students communicate, etc.

I'll admit the learning curve is steep, and I have some doubts about whether students might become more confused by all the technology than by the English they are learning. Still, Second Life is attracting more and more attention as an ideal learning environment and I can well imagine that it will eventually become an alternative for many students who want to study English online.
