This study focuses on the possibilities of film sound to improve the learning process, according to the immersion level elicited by 3D sound listening compared to stereo sound, and to the relation between emotion and learning. three-hundred-thirty students of English as a foreign language from Primary and High School Education watched an audiovisual sequence with one of two conditions: stereo and 3D surround mix. Learning evaluation (listening comprehension tests) and emotional impact measurement (electrodermal response, self-perception emotion test, and voice recording of the participants’ reactions) have been the used instruments. The results show that students who watched the sequence listening to the 3D surround sound mix obtained better listening comprehension results than those that listened to the stereo sound mix.
