"It has been observed in "La Plaza de la Tecnología", there are young adults playing video games but at the same time inferring the meaning of the English instruction. During this activity I can see they are both enjoying the game and learning English. The effectiveness of using educational software programs found positive effects in the player and they can be a good tool to improve English in young adults. Having contact with them allow people to learn a lot of things while they enjoy the experience of the game itself. This project has the purpose to describe how video games help young adults to learn English in "La Plaza de la Tecnología". The everyday contact with video games improve their language skills in a significant way. Despite the stuff they can learn within the classroom, spending hours playing video games in English increase their vocabulary, grammar, etc. The exposure to video games in English helps young adults to learn "Unconsciously" the language. These individuals learn by doing and are actively seeking out the cognitive challenges presented in video games (Steinkuehler, 2005)."
