<p>This article describes a mixed-reality experience for learning Spanish as a foreign language, which takes place in a virtual world that mirrors a boulevard in Madrid. To this end, the authors have extended the capabilities of an open source multiuser 3D virtual world platform to orchestrate learning activities and use augmented reality and augmented virtuality. The results of their evaluation show positive effects on student motivation and improvement in learning outcomes.</p>
