[Abstract]: Human beings' ability to communicate in mother tongue can be easily taken for granted until a situation arises when one uses another language.

The use of emerging technologies such as immersive Virtual Reality is discussed. A number of multimedia language learning environments, which encourage creativity and right brain functions are presented and analyzed.
