Immersive learning to train in professional and general English
Les Intellos is a training institution, which offers various apprenticeships eligible for the Personal Training Account (CPF), in particular to learn foreign languages, improve French command under the Voltaire Project and FLE (French as a Foreign Language), but also master office automation tools or programming languages. To help you assimilate a varied vocabulary and English grammar, Les Intellos offers you a new program that is innovative, fun, interactive and above all engaging. As part of this training, the organization provides you with a virtual reality headset to immerse yourself in this dedicated space. The goal: acquire the fundamentals of the language, put them into practice in the metaverse, be able to make yourself understood and express yourself in a professional and general environment.
This device offers learners the possibility of immersing themselves in a virtual environment that brings together different places, a bar, a gym, a restaurant, a shop, etc., to expand their vocabulary and exchange with people present in the metaverse (trainers, other students, etc.). “With Les Intellos we want to dust off the field of training and restore the image of a ‘training institution’ which offers apprenticeships eligible for the CPF. », explains co-founder Quentin Rivat. The Learning English in the Metaverse module is aimed at those who want to learn a language for professional and general use and have an appetite for new technologies such as virtual reality. If no training prerequisites are required, it is recommended to be familiar with digital tools and distance learning.
Offering you to practice what you’ve learned in an immersive universe with a virtual reality headset, the temptation to distract yourself from the training is greatly reduced, unlike courses taken 100% on mobile or tablet, where it’s easier to learn and be disturbed by the receipt of a notification (message, social network, etc.).
In the context of traditional training, learners have unlimited access to the initial learning platform for 100 days (3.5 months), which is available 24/7. They can connect during breaks at work, in the evening or even in weekend, from your smartphone and/or tablet. But with the VR training option, their training takes on another dimension. From the virtual reality headset, they can also connect to the metaverse. Pedagogical learning is perfectly suitable if you already have a professional activity. Furthermore, to facilitate the use of the VR headset, an explanation and help are included in the formula “Le Connecté”.
The benefits of the metaverse to learn English differently
If learning a foreign language through the metaverse represents a differentiating offer on the market for Les Intellos, it also offers many advantages for students. ” Thanks to virtual reality, they can create their own avatar and show less signs of stress when practicing speaking English with other students or trainers. It’s easier for them to get started because they feel less judged and are less afraid of making a mistake Quentin says. When the project was launched, the challenge for the co-founder was centered on the needs of the users of the initial platform: how to change the way of teaching foreign languages through a simple digital tool other than a smartphone or tablet, which can be understood and held by everyone, even the elderly, and offering a greater impact on learning with a less fixed immersion?
We’re not reinventing the metaverse, but we’re customizing it to be more accessible so students can use it wisely. The metaverse lends itself very well to the field of training to offer a new way of training. This allows us to customize an offer with more added value to access new skills, but above all giving the opportunity to put them into practice as in real life.
Because the metaverse is full of opportunities for students. If the graphics aren’t as advanced as in a video game, for example, they have an avatar made up of a torso and a head. The goal: to reduce any drift related to “physical” harassment that other virtual reality platforms may encounter, offering a real framework for the practice. No artificial intelligence in the program, this is about the visual representation of human and very real people. Beyond the gamification which brings a real advantage to training, the VR module offered by Les Intellos thus allows to change mentality around these innovative technologies in full development.
We are at the beginning of virtual reality. GAFAM is just starting to test some features and market them to the general public. Now is the right time to take the plunge with the proper support and uses.
A unique experience in a virtual London
Concretely, 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 for students to discuss. In addition to escaping, changing settings to learn the particularities of the English language more quickly, sessions are scheduled directly from the platform with a certified trainer to practice speaking on a dedicated topic.
Tomorrow we will also be able to meet the 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 personalize the learning of other languages: a virtual Madrid for Spanish, Paris for FLE…
The Les Intellos organization always listens to its users: the learning platform, which is updated regularly, can also evolve according to the feedback of the students, who take ownership of the use of the platform. Soon new educational contents will be added according to the levels, with also the possibility to create cultural exchanges, to follow the events of the metaverse in the chosen language.
We can imagine many things: visiting a London museum in English, participating in a football or rugby match in a stadium like the Emirates Stadium, for example, and thus being able to exchange vocabulary words around a specific theme.
