|Abstract:||Designs to support early English language learning often segregate language skills and neglect social engagement. To address the gap, we propose a design-based research study to create a tangible board game with the goal of supporting engagement, collaboration, and scaffolding through game mechanics. The game foregrounds verb tense learning as the salient learning goal to engage stakeholders (parents, instructors, and children). We discuss theoretical and practical implications for designing board games to support ESL/EFL learning.|
