This article investigates research on the use of network-based three-dimensional virtual worlds in computer-assisted language learning (CALL). The significant features of the major types of virtual world currently utilized are examined, as are the hypothesized advantages and issues associated with their use. This is followed by a critical review of the literature which reveals that contemporary research remains largely exploratory in nature and is subject to significant limitations. The… CONTINUE READING
