The Best Games to Help you Learn English

Trying to learn a new language is a fun and exciting journey, yet so many people decide not to learn a new language. We get it, learning a new language can seem like a huge task, but it is possible. Some languages are easier to learn when compared to other languages. English is a language that a lot of people struggle to learn. There are hundreds of apps and programs that are designed to teach you English, but these apps are not for everyone. Oftentimes, they are either boring, hard to follow, or don't teach the language in a practical way. This makes it even more difficult to learn how to speak English.

If you find yourself wanting a different way to learn English, try playing games. There are so many great games that help you learn English while also having fun! Finding a game you really enjoy will make the learning process a lot easier and more enjoyable. In this post we are going to go over some of our favorite games that can help you learn English!

Hangman

Hangman

Hangman is a great game to play if you are trying to learn English. In this game you must guess words and phrases to win. For every letter you guess that isn’t in the word you lose a life. Once you run out of lives you lose and start over. Our version at Cool Math Games has you floating with balloons above a monster. You must guess the phrases before running out of lives to advance to the next level. This game is great at teaching you new words and how to spell them.  You can play our version of Hangman here. There are a ton of different versions of Hangman, but they all have similar rules and are great for learning English. 

Word Detector

 

Word Detector

Word Detector is another great game that helps you learn English. In this game you are given a set of letters. Your job is to click and drag the letters together to make words. Once you have made all the words for your set of letters, you move on to the next round. As you pass through the levels, they will get progressively harder. This means that you will always be challenging yourself to find and learn some new words. This is a great game if you want to expand your vocabulary and spelling. If you want to play Word Detector, we have it right here on Cool Math Games, you can play it here. 

Words With Friends

Words With Friends

Words With Friends is one of the most popular word games out there, and it is great for trying to learn English. The good thing about this game is it allows you to play against your friends. This is great because if you have a friend that also wants to learn English you could go through the process together. You can also play against a friend who already knows English, and you might be able to pick up some things from them! In this game you compete against your opponent to spell out words. The more complex the word the more points you get. This game is a great tool for learning some interesting words in the English language.

Misspelled

 

Misspelled

This game is fun because it is not all about words. In this game you are a wizard who must get through obstacles on the map by casting spells. In order to cast a spell, you must type out words. Once you type out the word and know the spell you can use them to pass the level. Each spell has a different ability. For example, if you type ‘rocks’ you will be able to use the word to run over sharp objects without having to restart, and if you type ‘jumps’ you are able to jump higher when you jump on the word. This game is great for the person who wants to learn English without feeling like they are learning English. If you play this game long enough, you will forget you are even learning English because you will be having so much fun. If you want to try Misspelled out play it here!

These are just some of the games we recommend for people who are trying to learn English. If none of these games get you interested, try checking out our list of word games here on Cool Math Games.
