This study explores the impact that a VR application like Google Earth VR had on six experimental groups' speech writing capabilities and the delivery of their presentations. Three cohorts consisting of 70 EFL students role-played as mock travel agents and tour guides for foreign visitors coming to Japan for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. This study was conducted using an Oculus Rift combined with Google Earth VR; the experimental groups immersed themselves in the "Heritage Zone" and "Tokyo Bay Zone" surrounding Olympic Village. Quantitative pre-test and post-test results and qualitative assessments of the speeches evaluated their pronunciation, rhythm, and memorization abilities.
