“Learning Languages in the Digital Age” – HumaniVR contributes to digital conference in Beijing

In September 2020, Karsten Senkbeil and Timo Ahlers followed an invitation by the Goethe-Institut and the Institut Français in Beijing to speak about Virtual Reality as a tool for language learning at the online conference “Learning Languages in the Digital Age” [Fremdsprachenlernen im Digitalen Zeitalter].

Timo spoke about Digital-game-based language learning (DGBLL) in his talk “Do you speak virtual? Learning in language tandems in Virtual Reality” together with our esteemed colleague Dr. Milica Lazovic.

Karsten presented the status quo of HumaniVR and our current research agenda.

Thank you to the Goethe-Institut and the Institut Français for organizing a remarkable quadrilingual event (English, German, French, Mandarin) and for having us!

Update: The Goethe-Institut uploaded a short video clip summarizing the event to “Tencent Video” (the ‘Chinese Youtube’), with ‘soundbites’ of Timo, Milica, and Karsten [in German].
