In this demonstration we will present technol- ogies that enable learners to engage in spoken conversations in foreign languages, integrat- ing intelligent tutoring and serious game ca- pabilities into a package that helps learners quickly acquire communication skills. Con- versational AI technologies based on the SAIBA framework for dialog modeling are realized in this 3-D game environment. Par- ticipants will be introduced to tools for author- ing dialogs in this framework, and will have an opportunity to experience learning with Alelo products, including the Operational Language and Culture Training System (OLCTS).
