Abstract: Education transformation is inevitable in the contemporary era due to the evolution of technology. Educators should ponder the issues of what to teach, how to teach and, how to evaluate along with the features of technology. The purpose of the study is to create a wearable virtual reality environment for English learning. A pilot study was conducted to examine students’ perceived intrinsic value of English learning in this wearable 3D virtual reality environment. Results show that most students perceived usefulness for the learning and they perceived real value in the wearable virtual environment. The feedback from these students will further help the researchers improve the design and the content of the learning environment.
