Immersive learning to train in professional and general English
Les Intellos is a training organization which offers various apprenticeships eligible for the Personal Training Account (CPF), in particular to learn foreign languages, improve your command of French as part of the Voltaire Project and FLE (French as a Foreign Language), but also master office automation tools or programming languages. To help you assimilate varied vocabulary and English grammar, Les Intellos offers you a new innovative program that is fun, interactive and above all immersive. As part of this training, you will receive a virtual reality headset from the organization to be able to immerse yourself in this dedicated space. The goal: to acquire the basics of the language, to put them into practice in the metaverse, to succeed in making yourself understood and to express yourself in a professional and general environment.
This device allows students to immerse themselves in a virtual environment that brings together different places, a cafe, a gym, a restaurant, a store, etc., to expand their vocabulary and exchange with the people present in the metaverse (coaches). , other students, etc.). “With Les Intellos, we want to dust off the training field and restore the image of the “training organisation” offering CPF-eligible apprenticeships. », explains co-founder Quentin Rivat. The module for learning English in the metaverse is aimed at those who want to learn a language for professional and general use and who have a certain appetite for new technologies such as virtual reality. If no educational prerequisites are necessary, it is recommended to be familiar with digital tools and distance learning.
By offering to apply what you have learned in an immersive universe with a virtual reality headset, the temptation to distract yourself from training is greatly reduced, unlike courses taken 100% on a mobile or tablet, where it is easier to download . and be disturbed by receiving a notification (message, social network, etc.).
In conjunction with traditional training, students have unlimited access to the initial learning platform for 100 days (3.5 months), available 24/7. They can connect during their break at work, in the evening or even at the weekend, from their smartphone and/or tablet. But with the VR option, training takes on a different dimension in their way of training. From the virtual reality headset, they can also connect to the metaverse. Pedagogical learning is perfect if you already have a professional activity. To make it easier to get started with the VR headset, there is also an explanation and help included in the “Le Connecté” formula.
The benefits of the metaverse to learn English differently
If learning a foreign language via the metaverse represents for Les Intellos a differentiating offer on the market, it also offers many advantages for the students. ” Thanks to virtual reality, they can create their avatar and show fewer signs of stress when practicing speaking English with other students or coaches. It is easier for them to get started because they feel less judged and less afraid of making mistakes ” says Quentin. When the project was launched, the challenge for the co-founder centered on the needs of the users of the original platform: how to change the way of training foreign languages through a simple digital tool other than a smartphone or a tablet, which can be understood and taken in the hand of everyone, even seniors, and offers a greater impact on learning with a less fixed immersion?
We’re not reinventing the metaverse, but we’re adapting it to make it more accessible so students can use it wisely. The Metaverse lends itself very well to the training area to offer a new way of training. This allows us to tailor an offer with more added value to access new skills, but above all by giving the opportunity to put them into practice as in real life.
Because the metaverse is full of opportunities for students. If the graphics are not as advanced as in a video game for example, they have an avatar consisting of a bust and a head. The goal: to reduce any drift related to “physical” harassment that other virtual reality platforms may encounter by offering a real framework for practice. No artificial intelligence on the show, this is a question of the visual representation of human and very real people. In addition to the gamification, which brings a real plus to the training, the VR module offered by Les Intellos thus makes it possible to change the mentality around these innovative technologies in full development.
We are at the beginning of virtual reality. The GAFAMs are just starting to test certain functionalities and market them to the general public. This is the right time to take the leap with appropriate support and applications.
A unique experience in a virtual London
Specifically, students are immersed in a virtual representation of the city of London where they can connect and discuss on the map. For Quentin, this innovative device is more effective than a group video where students can discuss. In addition to escaping, changing settings to learn the peculiarities of the English language faster, sessions with a certified trainer are scheduled directly from the platform to practice speaking on a dedicated topic.
Tomorrow we will also be able to meet Anglo-Saxons who will be able to circulate in this virtual environment, to deepen their learning, verbally but also culturally. We are already working on the implementation of this innovation to adapt the learning of other languages: a virtual Madrid for Spanish, Paris for FLE…
The organization Les Intellos always listens to its users: the learning platform, which is updated regularly, can also develop according to the feedback of students who will acquire the use of the platform. New educational content will be added soon according to the levels, with also the possibility to create cultural exchanges, to follow events from the metaverse in the chosen language.
We can imagine many things: visiting a London museum in English, attending a football or rugby match in a stadium like the Emirates Stadium, for example, and thus being able to exchange vocabulary around a particular theme.
