English through Gaming

According to world renowned psychologist Mihaly Chikszentmihalyi, “Games are the flow inducing experiences per excellence,” meaning, gaming can produce some of the most pleasurable and satisfying experiences we know, so if you are having trouble learning a new language in the context of a classroom and feel bored beyond belief with the ways standard classes ask you to memorize and study things, you are not alone. Doing is learning, so if you are a gamer that does not need too much to get motivated to game, learning English by playing games might just be your answer. Excellent for kinesthetic and organizer-style language learners.
