Second Language Development through OnlineGaming: A Literature Study

Abstract [en]

English is a part of our lives from an early age, and it is important that pupils engage

themselves in learning the language. Today many pupils have access to a computer and can

play online games in collaboration with others from around the world. This study aims to

examine how online gaming can help pupils develop their second language. By studying prior

research and analysing the results, it was found that there are several factors which may have

an effect

on pupils’ second language development. Through online games, motivation

increases. Also, the interaction with both native English speakers as well as other second

language learners within the games, form immense language input from authentic

communication. These findings show that there are possible benefits in playing online games.

However, there is a need for much further research to get a clear overview over the possible

affects online games have for pupils second language development.
