The folks who created 3D Language Spain which I have blogged about before in Learning Spanish in a Game have now created a couple more interesting and highly entertaining products (not to mention Educational.) The goal of the company is to make "language learning truly immersive, engaging, and fun." If you enter into their immersive environment and tour around, I think you'll agree they've met their goal. (they provided me with some exclusive screen captures and such so check them out.)
One new product is English as a Second Language (ESL) or America and the other is Arabic. Both products are in alpha release – the company puts forth a concerted effort to gather feedback and refine what they are doing before releasing the official product. So they want to get it out their and have lots of folks "kick the tires."
If any of you are interested in providing alpha feedback, the company would love to hear from you. Just email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know you saw this posting on my blog and you would like to help test the alpha version. Or, if you have some input into what you'd like to see next as a language or as a practice environment for a particular language, let them know.
Finally, another cool thing they are doing is starting a new Social Network for language learners, which will bring the 3dlanguage community another resource in language learning and leverage Web 2.0 tools to build a language community centered on different languages.
So if you have a few moments, stop by Coccinella Development and check out what they are doing. I think you will be impressed.
