 Simple Games Boost Language Learning

A new study has shown that the experience of learning a new language can be made far easier by playing simple games using words and pictures.

Researchers from The University of Nottingham revealed that using fun, informal ways of learning not only helped complete novices to acquire a new language but also made more traditional methods of language learning more effective.

PhD student Marie-Josee Bisson of the University's School of Psychology, who led the study along with Drs Walter van Heuven, Kathy Conklin and Richard Tunney, said: "The results of this study have implications not only for language learning and teaching, but also for anyone interested in improving their knowledge of a foreign language."

The study has been published by the scientific journal PLOS ONE.
