Abstract

Vocabulary has been established as the primary way towards learning a new language (Carter, 2001).With the advent of the computer technology, various degrees of change has been felt in different areas of education. As for language learning, this intervention has been very palpable. This study is an attempt to look at the reported effect of multimedia games on language learning in the related literature. To this end, first, concepts of incidental and intentional vocabulary learning are introduced. In the next step, some aspects of vocabulary (learning) are dealt with concisely and finally multimedia games and their effect on vocabulary learning are briefly discussed.
