We have built a number of social simulations at ILS that provide learning by doing environments. Dustin is an example of a simple simulator built to help students learn a foreign language through learning by doing. Dustin (named after Dustin Hoffman because its goal is to allow you to act your part as a foreign language speaker by teaching you to know your lines) was developed for use by foreign employees of Andersen Consulting. As in any good acting situation, the scene must be set, and the scene for Dustin is a training center in St. Charles, Illinois. The business instruction classes held at St. Charles are conducted solely in English.
