Digital games and the development of plurilingual competence
The potential of games to support language learning and acquisition – be it in the digital wilds or in the foreign language classroom – has often been discussed. In this article, I will look at digital games from an explicitly plurilingual perspective. I describe five existing games that demonstrate a plurilingual outlook (Romanica, MElang-E, BabelAR, LoCALL, World of Languages), focussing on their potential regarding modelling plurilingual competencies, fostering language awareness, and encouraging transformational play.
