Abstract

Regarding international trade, English is among the most significant languages. Several tools are available to help with language learning in this area. Academics and businesses alike are warming up to the idea of using technology in corporate communication skills. Immersive platforms, such as virtual reality, are becoming increasingly available as a means for non-native speakers of English to learn the language. Those who are serious about making it in the business world need to work on their fluency and competence. It could be helpful for learners to think about business-specific English in this context. According to the study, virtual reality (VR) provides an immersive, interactive environment where students may practice real-world business skills. Additionally, it covers situations when students can make the most of their career opportunities. The potential of virtual reality technologies to improve English language skills is demonstrated in a mixed-methodology study. There are several methods for bettering one's Business English, and it details how various VR apps may captivate and excite students.
