This study investigated the contribution of task-based language learning in a 3D virtual world to anxiety, motivation, and self-confidence. The participants were Middle East Technical University preparatory students speaking English as a foreign language, and the 3D environment selected was Second Life, an online virtual world with a global user base. The results demonstrated the effectiveness of task-based language learning in the virtual environment, which had a positive impact on students. Findings suggest that students’ experiences in Second Life provided them with increased motivation and self-confidence, helping them overcome anxiety related to speaking English.

Bu çalışma sanal dünyalarda uygulanan görev temelli dil eğitimi etkinliklerinin endişe, güdülenme ve özgüven açısından katkılarını incelemiştir. Katılımcı grup Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi yabancı dil olarak İngilizce eğitimi alan hazırlık sınıfı öğrencileridir ve çalışma uygulaması küresel kullanıcı profiline sahip Second Life ortamında yapılmıştır. Çalışma sonuçları sanal dünyalarda görev temelli dil etkinliklerinin etkili olduğunu göstermiş ve öğrencilerde olumlu izlenimler bıraktığı sonucuna varılmıştır. Çalışma sonuçlarına göre öğrencilerin Second Life ortamında edindikleri tecrübelerin İngilizce konuşmaya yönelik endişe seviyelerinde azalmaya, güdülenme ve özgüvenlerinde ise artışa katkısı vardır
