What are the pros and cons of using 'virtual worlds' to teach a language?

In my last foreign language class  the instructor remarked a bit sarcastically , "Congratulations, Jane! You just mixed Spanish, French, and German all in one sentence."  Obviously, foreign languages are not my strength but I do have the desire to learn.

 

I'm interested in how Virtual Worlds, like

 

Second Life

Entropia Universe

ExitReality

 

might help students learn a new language.  What do you think are some pros and cons of taking students to a virtual world to learn and practice a foreign language?
