Fakhereh Safatian


This paper presents a mixed-methods study that investigates the effectiveness of gamification in mobile language learning applications. The study explores how gamification elements influence language learning outcomes, motivation, and engagement. The specific game used in this study is “LanguageQuest,” a gamified language learning application that incorporates interactive activities, challenges, rewards, and progress tracking features. The study employs a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods to gather data from language learners who used the LanguageQuest app. The findings provide valuable insights into the impact of gamification on language learning and offer implications for language educators and app developers.
