Digital game-based language learning with Interactive Fiction (PART 1) Video games (also called digital games) are serious. While the people who play them have known this for a long time, it’s taken over three decades for society in general to accept them as something other than a way to pass the time in virtue of doing “more serious” work.

However, many of these articles seem to focus on math, science, and language arts. But what about language learning? How can GBL help English-language learners develop their comprehension and communicative skills? The one question that I'm often asked, however, is: "How can teachers get started with GBL in the language classroom, especially when they have little experience of it?" Start a Conversation GBL is all about engaging learners, so your first step is to find out if they like the idea -- after all, there's little point in trying to push GBL with a class who are simply not into gaming!
