With the development of virtual reality technology, the opportunity of using virtual reality to assist teaching has received much attention from numerous scholars and experts. This paper discusses the methods, advantages, and challenges of adopting the virtual reality technology in the university’s liberal education courses. It includes an in-depth review of similar studies and covers two major theories about knowledge acquisition, namely, Constructivism and Flipped classroom. This paper also uses the course: “Overview of Spanish-speaking Countries” as an example to explain the feasibility, advantages, and possible challenges in using virtual reality to teach Spanish culture. During the explanation, the idea of the VR-based Spanish culture learning platform is also presented. This research should provide insights into the virtual reality education field about the way to adopt virtual reality in university’s liberal education courses and provide a solid foundation for further research and practice.
