The high popularity of wearable technology has transformed learning technologies in education. Technologies not only provides interactions between learners and instructors but also allows learners to be more engaged into the learning process. Alongside with the developments of learning tools and platforms, it is also equally important to equip with required learning materials and arranged teaching strategies. An adaptive learning environment can provide suitable learning materials for meet the needs of learner's needs and sustain the learning efficiency. This study aims at both designing and developing a virtual-reality system for providing adaptive English-vocabulary-learning environment. A quasi-experimental design, with the experimental group using virtual-reality adaptive English vocabulary learning system, is also employed to examine the learning achievements between the study group and the control group that runs the class at traditional teaching style. Both the learning efficiency and cognitive styles are examined. Results reveal that: (1) Greater learning efficiency was observed in the study group that utilized the virtual-reality adaptive English vocabulary learning system; (2) The motivations in learning are greatly improved in the study group who are involved in the virtual-reality adaptive English vocabulary learning system; (3) Learning achievements are improved at the post-usage process of the virtual-reality adaptive English vocabulary learning system. Discussions and suggestions are given in the end of the paper.
