VR has advantages in simulating the real context, and its application in the field of education has attracted increasing attention. This research aims to explore the possibility of combining VR technology with basic English education and its impact on learning interest and effect. The study discusses that VR can be combined with multiple application modes in English learning, and with the background of English learning content, a set of teaching mode of VR English learning content for students is designed, and a questionnaire survey and analysis are carried out. The comprehensive results show that the combination of VR technology and English education has brought new possibilities to the concept of student-centered education, and VR technology can become a more commonly used auxiliary method for English teaching, providing students with immersive, situational and interactive experiences.
