Factors Influencing Foreign Language Learning in eSports. A Case Study
AbstractThe overwhelming growth of the eSport industry in different countries and the possibility of playing online these videogames have allowed Spanish players to communicate with players from other countries that speak a different language, creating a new learning context. In this case study, we wanted to analyse how the process of language learning occurs in the eSport context through a qualitative research design. For that purpose, we used observations, analysis of the oral output during gaming, interviews with players and organization team in an amateur league and assessment of their communicative skills. The results show the importance of the communication in the interaction with the community and the team, the influence of the social context and inside the game and the intrinsic motivation due to the use value of learning in a pluricultural and competitive context.
