Applying Video Games in Language Learning and Teaching — The learner perspective: a case study

INTRODUCTION

 

Video game industry is a rapidly growing field especially in Finland. The enormous success of the mobile game Angry Birds has shown how games could be the country's new specialty, and more and more schools offer courses, studies and even degrees on designing video games.
