"DotA 2 as a Tool for Developing Players’ Foreign Language Skills: Applying Three Learning Principles to the Context of the Game"
1. Introduction
Pure Research
: carried out to increase understanding of fundamental principles
- The Game:
DotA 2
- Learning Principles:
Situated Meanings
Language Skills
the game to these
learning principles
2. Review of Literature
Learning Principles:
2) Identity:

According to Gee (2007),

"Learning involves taking on and playing with identities in such a way that the learner has real choices (in developing the virtual identity) and ample opportunity to mediate on the relation between new identities and old ones." (p. 222)

1) Interaction

As explained by Gee (2009)

"Games do talk back. In fact, nothing happens until a player acts and makes decisions. Then the game reacts back, giving the player feedback and new problems. In a good game, words and deeds are all placed in the context of an interactive relationship between the player and the world." (p. 5)

3) Situated Meanings

In relation to the importance of the context, Gee (2005) explains that

"People are poor at learning what words mean when all they get is a definition that spells out what a word means in terms of yet other words... Games always situate the meanings of words in terms of the actions, images, and dialogues they relate to, and show how they vary across different actions, images and dialogues. They don’t just offer words for words. School shouldn’t either." (p. 7)
Bloodseeker's major role:
"Commend me!"
: “I think they are amiable”.
: “I think they are quit forgiving”.
: “I think they are a great teacher”.
: “I think they are a good leader”.

Carries are the heroes that can obtain the greatest power and utility. (It is so derived from the act of "carrying" a team; that is, to bear the responsibility for ultimate victory.)
1) I love video games!

2) Learning + Video Games
2) a. Develop language skills
2) b. Different Principles:

2) c. Is DotA 2 a complete and efficient environment for players develop their different language skills?

(Identity, Interaction and Situated Meanings)
3) It is very (very...I'm serious... very) small contribution to subsequent studies and especially, a new perspective in relation to the development of foreign language skills using a MOBA game.

Thank you!
