Learning grammar is important because it can help us understand how we put words together to make phrases and sentences. But many people find learning grammar a bit dull or difficult, particularly if they are learning grammar in a new language like French, Spanish or German.
The Digital Creativity Labs has been funded by EPSRC to develop over 15 hours of Gaming Grammar: gamified practice of verb morphology in French and Spanish that makes grammar essential to understand meaning in line with the MFL Pedagogy Review recommendations.
With additional funding from DfE, NCELP is working with the Digital Creativity Labs to add more grammatical features, adapt it for German, and to build an intuitive interface for teachers. The games will be freely available.
