English Teaching Assistant VR is the world's first fully animated chat-bot in VR. It can keep up with conversations and accurately answer questions. It can dance, recite poetry, play games with you, and even tell jokes. It is also able to make eye contact, and lip-sync. This is a free tester software that has been developed to display and showcase our most recent successes with development.

It will eventually be used to direct English language learning courses and programs.
