Detta är en Uppsats för yrkesexamina på grundnivå från Högskolan Dalarna/Pedagogiskt arbete

Sammanfattning: English is a part of our lives from an early age, and it is important that pupils engage themselves in learning the language. Today many pupils have access to a computer and can play online games in collaboration with others from around the world. This study aims to examine how online gaming can help pupils develop their second language. By studying prior research and analysing the results, it was found that there are several factors which may have an effect on pupils’ second language development. Through online games, motivation increases. Also, the interaction with both native English speakers as well as other second language learners within the games, form immense language input from authentic communication. These findings show that there are possible benefits in playing online games. However, there is a need for much further research to get a clear overview over the possible affects online games have for pupils second language development.
