The words “grammar learning” and “boring” are often, unfortunately, associated. Traditional grammar teaching and learning fails to engage students in active and lifelong learning. There is a need for learner-centred approaches that help students learn grammar in a second language or foreign language classroom in a more engaging and enjoyable way. Grammar learning games represent a particularly promising addition to the grammar teacher’s arsenal. Little is known about how student-driven grammar learning games can be used in the class, however, this paper provides an account of a classroom based study, giving an early insight based on a research study that explored the impact that the use of a game-based grammar learning approach had on the grammar learning experience of tertiary students learning Spanish in Australia.
