    • What is Cypris?
      We are a not-for-profit English speaking community in Second Life.
      Voice Chat: English Only
      SL Group: 300+ members
      Map Search: Cypris Village
    • Our Mission
      We strive to provide an educational yet fun and interesting environment for English learning and teaching.
      Our members have the chance to be part of a living community surrounded by others who are learning, teaching or simply interested in speaking English with people from around the world.
      We believe learning should be a way of life instead of a struggle to achieve.
    • Who are the learners?
      Our group is made up of people from all over the world but the bulk of our members come from Asia.
      The age range of our members seems to be between 30 and 50.
      Level of English competence ranges from beginner to almost fluent.
    • Four Principles of Cypris
      Share – safe toys, clothes, avatars, gadgets. Sharing promotes communication.
      Respect – different cultures, backgrounds, and reasons for being in SL.
      Respond – Let us know what you think.
      Be Active – Speak. Ask questions. Participate. Less text chat. More voice!

    • Learner Testimonies(in learners’ own words)
      I had many chance to learn English more when I was student…but was not so interested in it… and since I came in SL…I found its fun to communicate with people in English..
      I come here 18 day, I think my English is better than my 10 years “student”.
