About SLanguages 

SLanguages Annual Symposium was founded by Gavin Dudeney of The Consultants-E in 2007 and in 2010 was taken over by a committee, lead by Gary Motteram of the University of Manchester.

It is the only conference on language learning in virtual worlds and show-cases language learning in Second Life and other immersive 3D environment such as Open Sim, World of Warcraft etc.

It is a ‘magical’ conference that goes way beyond traditional conference presentations.

Tours, workshops, demo lessons, performances and theatre plays were all part of the past conferences.

All of the sessions take place in the immersive 3D environment and are screen shared with Adobe Connect to provide ‘a virtual window’ to a ‘virtual world’.

SLanguages takes place for the 7th time next year.
