Description: Second Life is a virtual world platform where users can create 3D avatars and interact with others in a digital environment resembling real life. Users can explore, socialise, build, trade, and participate in various activities within the platform. Signing up for an account is required to access and use Second Life. It was developed by Philip Rosedale, the founder of Linden Lab.

Evaluation: Second Life can be a useful and engaging tool for learners to immerse themselves into a virtual environment where they can keep practicing their target language. Teachers can create their own virtual world and invite students to join, hence bolstering immersive teaching, active participation, and experiential learning. It does take some time to create an avatar and configure the right setup. It is important to create a safe space for education since otherwise other users could start undesired interactions with students. Advanced IT knowledge is required to incorporate Second Life into a language learning curriculum in a fruitful way.

Cost: Free with registration + paid options available.
