Summary

Learning a new language as an adult is hard. Children, however, do it with ease. We created a virtual reality environment that resembles the experience of a child. The user is prompted to use childish methods such as speech and gestures to learn a new language. The user is guided by virtual parents and siblings throughout the experience and progresses through a variety of locations such as crib, playroom, kitchen and more.

Contributions

This experience was created by Yuri Goto (Sound Design), Minzi Long (Asset Creation and Animation), Shirly Gurten (Concept and Storytelling) and Mike Hao Jiang (Software Development and Asset Integration) as part of the “VR, Sound and Cinema: Implications for Storytelling and Learning” class by Ken Zolot and Yao Wang.

Skills
