MetadataShow full item record
Vocabulary learning has always been a major concern for those who want to learn a second language, but most of Libyan EFL students usually feel bored in vocabulary classes because they have not changed their learning habits: such as writing words on their notebooks, trying to learn by heart or learning passively through teachers’ explanations. To help students find language classes, especially vocabulary lessons more interesting and to achieve more from games, I conducted practical research to find the answer to the question, "Do games help students to learn vocabulary more effectively, and if so, how?". This study was conducted to find out whether engaging students in a word games can affect vocabulary development of learners or not. The study was conducted at Al-Qordabeya School in Sebha. A mixed method was used to conduct the study (a questionnaire and interview). It was found that students are demanding a new way of learning vocabulary, and they themselves are in search of a new way of learning this subject.
