Love Grammar: Student-driven Grammar Learning Games
MetadataShow full item record
The words "grammar learning" and "boring" are often, unfortunately, associated. Traditional grammar teaching and learning fails to engage students in active and lifelong learning. There is a need for learner-centred approaches that help students learn grammar in a second language or foreign language classroom in a more engaging and enjoyable way. Grammar learning games represent a particularly promising addition to the grammar teacher's arsenal. Little is known about how studentdriven grammar learning games can be used in the class, however, this paper provides an account of a classroom based study, giving an early insight based on a research study that explored the impact that the use of a game-based grammar learning approach had on the grammar learning experience of tertiary students learning Spanish in Australia.
