In the present article, the effect of the substrate type in virtual concurrent classes is studied on the growth of the oral comprehension of the Iranian language learners. After studying the features of Adobe Connect Platform and Skype Software as two modern distance and online learning substrates, the growth of the capability of the Iranian language learners is compared in virtual and non-virtual courses. For this purpose, a practical pilot study was performed on 18 language learners at the level A1 using pre-tests and post-tests and the control group in two language institutes in Tehran. Data were examined by covariance analysis test after measuring their normality and variance consistency. The statistical results indicated that the oral comprehension is developed positively in all three groups (those language learners learning French using Adobe Connect Platform, those learning French using Skype Software, and those non-virtual language learners). However, learners of virtual courses were more successful than non-virtual language learners and those language learners learning French using Adobe Connect Platform grew more desirably than those learning through Skype software.
