Therfore the Glass allows the student to have a real-life conversation with a foreigner working at the coffee shop who speaks English, while also getting coaching from their teacher, who sits at home. Taking Google Glass from coffee shops to supermarkets to celebrities The new experimental course with Glass started this month and so far has 30 students, while Topica already has over 1,000 English students on its education platform. Each of these students will have one live Google Glass session per week. Four other students – while the Glass-wearing student is in the coffee shop having the lesson – will be able to stream the session online and learn along with the Glass-equipped student. Throughout the week, students can attend each other’s sessions, which run from 8am to 10pm every day. (See: DeltaViet is the Udemy of Vietnam, bringing online education to the masses) In the future, the course will move beyond just coffee shops and follow students around supermarkets, bars, tourist spots, and any other places where they can practice their spoken English. Eventually, the course may even get Vietnamese celebrities to go abroad, using Glass, and interact in English and broadcast that interaction for students to see how the celebrities are getting on and communicating effectively in another language. Pham Minh Tuan, the founder of Topica, says they only have one Glass unit right now, but they’re ordering a second one.
