The Great Kitchen Escape is an example of an online video game that I think is great for English Language Learners.  It’s in the “Escape The Room” genre, and players have to collect various items found in a kitchen in order to escape.

Students can use it to develop kitchen vocabulary (the items are labeled) and use the Walkthrough in small groups when playing to develop reading skills in order to “win” the game.

You can read more about how I use these kinds of games in class in this month’s TechLearning article.

I’ve placed the link on my Intermediate English page under Word and Video Games.

(Note: Sometimes, when games first come out, their servers get too busy.  If you can’t get through to the game on the link I posted, then try this one.)
