Article title

Gredukacja i glottodydaktyka – czy da się to pogodzić?

Title variants

„Gredukacja” and glottodidactics- can these be reconcile?

Languages of publication



The article shows the new approach to teaching, popular in American didactics, described as gamufication. The author proposes usage of Polish neologism „gredukacja” for calling a phenomenon of inclusion of elements characteristic for games (like competition, development of a character, improvement, inspiring challanges, emblems) in language classes. She displays a game as a metastrategy. She will consider if the lesson can be treated as the game. She will also discuss conditions which should be met in plans of those lessons.
