The experience of learning a new language can be made far easier by playing simple games using words and pictures, a new study has shown.

Researchers from The University of Nottingham revealed that using fun, informal ways of learning not only helped complete novices to acquire a new language but also made more traditional methods of language learning more effective.

PhD student Marie-Josee Bisson of the University's School of Psychology, who led the study along with Drs Walter van Heuven, Kathy Conklin and Richard Tunney, said: "The results of this study have implications not only for language learning and teaching, but also for anyone interested in improving their knowledge of a foreign language.

The study has been published by the scientific journal PLOS ONE. (ANI)
