Are you a gamer? I am. Well, I used to be! I don’t have time to play them now. When I was a kid I played a lot of video games. My thumbs got sore because I was always playing Zelda or Mario. You can learn English by playing PlayStation and PC games. Yes, it’s true! Let’s start by learning some gaming vocabulary:
PC Games = Computer Games
Examples: League of Legends, Minecraft
Console Games = PlayStation, Xbox
Examples: FIFA, God of War
Mobile Games = iPhone, Android
Fruit Ninja, Temple Run
Here are some ways to learn English by playing games:
- Set the game language to English – Look in the game settings and change it to English. This is a great way to learn new English words.
- Talk to other players in English – When playing multiplayer games, you can chat with other players in English. Use a headset to speak to other players if the game has that feature.
- Play games on your phone – You can play fun games such as Quiz your English, Academy Island, ESL Games+ or Duolingo.
I made a list of apps and games you can play on your phone to get better at English.
