AN ENTERTAINING MOBILE VOCABULARY LEARNING APPLICATION

Furkan GOZ [1] , Mehmet OZCAN [2]


Learning a foreign language has become a necessity in today’s globalized world. While grammar structure of foreign language is learned easily, it is generally a difficult and boring job for people to develop the vocabulary knowledge. At this point it is essential to make learning easy, practical and fun. Beginning to play a substantial role in learning, mobile platforms are utilized for their practicality, portability and dynamism in this context. Moreover, it is viable with a game to turn the learning process into fun. In this work, it is purposed to develop a mobile game assisting people in memorizing the words of a foreign language. It is a kind of word prediction game giving clues according to the user’s guesses. In this game, both options are available, either to play with the whole words already in the application or to specify the words used in the gameplay.
