A makerspace is a constructivist learning environment (CLE) where learning takes place by creating objects. This paper describes a makerspace applied to second language learning in a university context. The course design and operation, along with its results were analyzed based on activity theory. The results at the end of the course revealed that students improved or maintained their language skill level on a par with their counterparts in traditional English classes.
