  • Hello, everyone.

  • Have you ever thought you could have fun

  • while learning English?

  • Today, I'm going to give you some tips on games,

  • apps and platforms you can play or use to improve your English.

  • If you're new to the channel,

  • click on the subscribe button to watch weekly videos

  • to improve your English.

  • When we play games,

  • we can practise our vocabulary, have contact with real English,

  • and with online games we can use them to communicate

  • with other players all over the world in English.

  • And all of this is done in a playful scenario,

  • so you might not even realise that you're learning.

  • I once heard the author Herbert Puchta,

  • at a Cambridge University Press event,

  • say that for learning to happen there needs to be emotion.

  • So when we're playing games,

  • we're so engaged and motivated in the task

  • that we're doing

  • that the learning happens more naturally.

  • If you are an English teacher,

  • you can incorporate these games in your classes as well.

  • So here are some tips for you.

  • Everyone loves a good quiz,

  • so here's a platform where players can answer

  • questions through their cell phones or tablets.

  • Teachers can create Kahoots as a forum to review content,

  • or ask the students to create it themselves,

  • so they can practise the target language

  • that is being taught,

  • or you can even answer and play a quiz

  • that's already on the platform.

  • Monkey Puzzles is a Cambridge English game for beginners.

  • Children can practise reading and writing

  • through eight mini-games.

  • It's very good to practise for all the young learner's tests.

  • It's available for download on the App Store.

  • Quiz Your English is another Cambridge

  • English app game for learners

  • to practise and test their knowledge in English.

  • It's aimed at intermediate users from B1 to C1,

  • and it's available for Apple and Android users.

  • You can compete with people from all over the world,

  • or challenge your friends through social media

  • and play against them.

  • Battle it out over a range

  • of general English topics and grammar,

  • or brush up to be ready

  • for your test by selecting an exam-specific topic.

  • Ruby Rei is a game app designed to help children learn English

  • through a very exciting narrative and tasks to complete

  • while you play.

  • It's designed by teachers and has a lot of interesting

  • and engaging characters,

  • and besides teaching English it also teaches

  • emotional intelligence through character-building situations.

  • Once you start, you can't stop playing.

  • You can also practise your English and learn

  • lots more by playing

  • regular games not specific to learning English,

  • like Fortnite and Minecraft.

  • If you're a teacher,

  • you can check out Minecraft Education Edition,

  • where you can teach English and other subjects

  • through the game with activities for the classroom.

  • Something that's become very popular among young people

  • that like to play games is watching walkthrough videos,

  • or creating one yourself.

  • These videos are made by gamers

  • and they show strategies on how to play.

  • They're excellent for practising listening for detail

  • and gaining more vocabulary.

  • On both games, there's a lot of construction vocabulary,

  • so you can learn the names of tools

  • and other building materials.

  • On Fortnite, you can learn lots of verbs while battling,

  • as well as talking to other players

  • from different countries and getting to know them

  • as you play.

  • Through these games,

  • you can get plenty

  • of opportunities to practise your English

  • and to communicate with people from all over the world.

  • I'll bet there's at least one of these games

  • or apps you can use to improve your English.

  • So how about trying them out on yourself or on your students?

  • After you do that,

  • please tell me in the comments section

  • what you thought of them,

  • or what you like to do to learn English

  • and have fun at the same time.

  • If you enjoyed this video,

  • please give it a big thumbs-up and share it with your friends,

  • family and colleagues.

  • Don't forget to subscribe to this channel.

  • I'll see you soon.

  • Bye.
