Options for learning languages with video games
I know, it sounds too good to be true! However, it is possible!
You might be thinking, “Robin, how can I learn a new language while playing video games I’m already playing?” Well, my friend, it’s all about choosing the games! You’d be surprised how many popular games out there have language options. So why not switch things up and play your favorite game in a different language?
But there is also the option to start playing video games devoted exclusively to learning languages! Yep, you heard me right! No more boring textbooks or classes. Dive into a game and start learning in a way that’s fun and engaging! And who knows, you might find a new favorite game while you’re at it!
So my fellow gamer, it’s up to you which route you wanna take. Stick with your current games and switch up the language, or dive into a new world of language-learning games. Either way, you’ll have a blast while expanding your linguistic skills! It’s a win-win if you ask me!
Learning languages with videogame titles you already enjoy
There are some pretty epic games out there! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Horizon Zero Dawn, Stardew Valley, The Sims, you name it! And who can blame you? These games are seriously awesome!
But we have addressed them because you can take your love for these games and use them to learn a new language! Well, my friend, it’s pretty simple! Just change the language settings in your game to the language you want to learn and start playing!
And the best part is, you’re learning enjoyably! Who wants to sit through dull language courses and quizzes when you could be farming in a virtual world? Not me, that’s for sure!
Plus, by gaming, you already know the basis for understanding the gameplay and devices that transcend language.
For example, you know how to adjust the brightness of your screen in English. Thus, you can figure it out in any language just by looking for the sun or lightbulb icon! So, if you see the “X: parlare” pop-up on the screen, you know that pushing X starts a conversation (even if you are not fluent in Italian)! It’s like a fun and interactive language lesson!
So my fellow gamer, take it from me. Learning a new language doesn’t have to be a chore! Just switch up your game settings and start playing in a different language! You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll pick up new words and phrases! It’s like leveling up your language skills in real life!
