Abstract

The study aims at developing an interactive digital linguistics game which can improve both grammatical and communicative competences in foreign language learning. The research approach used was Borg and Gall’s Educational Research and Development. The development of the manual version of the game was in 2016 and the transformation to its digital version is still in an ongoing process. This article reports parts of the process of the development of the game by explaining the steps based on Borg and Gall’s approach. During the development, the participants were French Department students, therefore the game was developed to improve the grammatical and communicative competence of French foreign language learners. The game is named GoGrammar. It focuses on morpho-syntax activities with which students can practice both grammatical knowledge and communicative skills in a fun way with direct feedbacks.
