The Tactical Language and Culture Training Systems are self-paced, computer-based courses that use virtual-world simulations of real-life social communication to teach how to speak foreign languages and - according to the authors - understand foreign cultures. From the first lesson, trainees learn by listening to and speaking in the foreign language, getting immediate feedback and guidance. They play immersive 3-D videogames that simulate real-life communication by role playing with "socially intelligent virtual humans" that recognize trainees' speech, gestures and behavior. Tactical Iraqi has been used by American Army troops in Iraq.
