Hello everyone

What do think of adventure games as a source for ESL (or English as a second language) teaching Shocked ?

I'm a big fan of adventure games and I've played them for quite a long time. The richness of their dialogues and inteactions made me pose and think of their potentials as effective language teaching tools especially in areas like pronunciation and vocabulary acquisition.

Now I'm working on this area as a research for my MA degree. I believe that AGs are even better than movies for ESL cuz rather than watching passively the student can live the experience.

So What do you think guys? Any ideas Very Happy

I would say I hate the idea, cuz I don't like adventure games.
If to pick a game as a source of English learning, I'd say a well storytelling RPG.
