Cultural communication between different countries is more and more important with the development of economic globalization.  Global Understanding (GU) is an international collaborative community of approximately 45 educational institutions from 25 countries where students can significantly improve their intercultural competence.  Use of virtual simulation technologies could help create an immersive situated learning environment to improve the cultural learning experience of GU.  We study the approaches on how virtual simulation technologies could be introduced into GU based on the analysis of virtual simulation in teaching and learning as well as on how at Shaanxi Normal University (SNNU), virtual simulation has been incorporated into teaching history and culture.
