This paper presents and discusses findings of a study conducted on pre-service teachers' experiences in virtual and face to face discussions. Technology has brought learning nowadays beyond the classroom context or time zone. The learning context and process no longer rely solely on face to face communications in the presence of a teacher. This study was conducted to understand 30 pre-service teachers' experience in using face-to-face (FTF) and virtual discussion. Data was gathered through observations and reflective journals. The finding showed that FTF discussion is still relevant and suitable to be used in the classroom and act as a complement to virtual discussions.
