The pandemic has become a catalyst to the quick transformation of the education system where several innovative approaches and systems have been developed in a short time. Augmented reality has risen to the occasion as one of the immersive technology tools to augment learning especially in this age of Education 4.0. With the development of ICT in education to make English classes more engaging and interactive, AR is proving to be a strong tool to improve the English language skills of the students. The correct and judicious usage of the tool would motivate the students to learn the skills of English in a fun-loving manner in a non-threatening environment.

The Training was given to the teachers who participated in the pilot study regarding the usage of the EduCart App, a tool for experience management. The paper will reflect on an AR-based concept map for immersive English language learning based on the experience of the students, teachers, administrators. The paper also reiterates the importance of the presence of a teacher who facilitates learning and that augmented reality is a tool through which learning is accentuated and becomes more effective.
