This workshop will demonstrate how some commercially-available video games can be used to engage students and enhance the process of language and culture acquisition. Not only do video games offer a high degree of authenticity in the different language registers they present, they also require interaction and can deliver significant cultural content. The workshop will consist in a theoretical part and a practical part with work groups and examples to use in the language classroom.

Please bring your smartphone, tablet or laptop.
